Even Better News!!

And more exciting news! Look at the Moda Bakeshop today instead of tomorrow. They sent me another e-mail just a bit ago saying they were putting it on today. Not only did they feature my September display but they must have read my mind because they are showing my December's display as well. Isn't life grand! We might have to celebrate with a contest, I'll be thinking of one the rest of the day. Happy Sewing, Shannon

Fantabulous News Everyone!!

Oh my heck, I opened up my e-mails this morning and got a lovely surprise from United Notions. I'm so excited that I'm shaking in my boots! Not really, I'm sitting here in my pj's thinking I might just start crying any minute that's how exciting this is. My Moda Bakeshop display entry from back in September was chosen to be featured on Moda Bakeshop, yup you heard it right, Corn Wagon is going to be featured there tomorrow. Go here to check it out or click on the icon on my side bar. Wow is that awesome news or what and it comes with a nice little cash bonus. Yahoo!! This may seem little to you but it is a huge success step for me. My hard work and talents are starting to pay off. Have I mentioned lately that I love my job!! Here is a picture to refresh your memory of my display.
Now let's see if we can't get United Notions to notice my December's display!

Simply Sewing Christmas!

Oh my gosh I just about forgot to post the projects we are doing this month for Simply Sewing 101. To many coals in the fire I guess, does anyones else have this problem this time of year. But here they are just a little late. We will be making these fun and simple gifts. All of these would make great gifts for neighbors, teachers, co-worker or anyone else on your list. Take a look and see if you want to join us on Saturday morning, December 12th at 9:00. We will be having brunch to go along with our sewing. Call me or e-mail if you want all the details to make any of these projects. My e-mail address is This is a fun hot pad using 5 10" squares. I've opened it up just a little bit and put some cute holiday cookie cutters inside then I attached a tag that says "Sending you Holiday wishes to "HOT" to handle!
The next gift idea are these cute dish towels. This is probably by far the easiest thing on the earth to make, and I'm serious. I cut 2" strips the width of my towel and add a 1/2" on each end for tucking under, then I sew the ric rac over the raw edge. Now really how easy is that? The tag on this one says " Sending "CLEAN" and "SPARKLING" Christmas wishes your way! Merry Christmas.
These are little gift bags. A little more work, but very, very cute. The small bag is just the right size for lotions, a small notebook and pen. The larger gift bag is great for childrens books, treats, etc. You could add a tag that says "FILLED" with Christmas love.
Well did you see anything you like? If "SEW", come join us on Saturday morning. The more the merrier this holiday season. Looking forward to seeing you.
