Floss Collection, New Pattern and a Giveaway!

Well, I'm just about caught up from being gone. Thank you so very much for your kind comments and support. It means the world to me. I should be back on schedule this week and hopping around to visit with you. I sure have missed my blog reading !


So today I'm thrilled to announce that Valdani asked me to create a thread collection!


It's called Folk Art Fusion collection. The threads I carry are the 3 strand floss, but it will soon be available in Pearle Cotton sizes 8 and 12.

This collection debuted at the Quilt Market along with my new Folk Art Fusion pattern,

Hans and Holly, the Christmas Elves. Hans and Holly love Christmas and are especially fond of jingle bells on their tree. This pattern was made with National Nonwovens wool (available in my shop), but it can also be made with cotton prints.

I'm so excited about this new floss collection and I want to celebrate with you! For one week only, today November 5, through November 9th at 10:00 p.m. eastern time, when you purchase my floss collection, you will receive the Hans and Holly pattern for FREE!


I have several of the tri stand hangers available in the shop too. They have been marked down 15%.


This floss collection will be used in my next book along with these wool colors. I can't wait to show you!

Thank you for celebrating with me! See you back here on Wednesday.

xx, Michelle and the Bunnies

YEAH MICHELLE! You are quite the designer to be asked to do this! I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! And the bunnies, did they miss you terribly while you were gone? I can just see all of you, working away and getting ready for the new season. I am now happy to say that my Christmas ornaments and wands are in a beautiful local boutique and this same establishment has hired me to do a paper wedding dress for their window display!!!!

WE ARE SMOKIN' so far and let's keep going!

Hugs to you, Anita

Beautiful collection and wonderful pattern! I could just keep these threads in the box and display them and still love them as much as if I used them. This is on my Bucket list next year, keeping my eye out for a starter kit..
