When hubby and I took our road trip last week to Berlin , Ohio we visited the Country Craft Cupboard ....What a wonderful shop and so busy, with the hustle and bustle of alot of tourism to Ohio Amish Country...The one gal, Melanie, was so sweet and we talked and talked, shared alot about hooking and she sold me this beauty :
I think I got a super good deal on it and it cuts my wool so nicely !!
I found this little caddy at Goodwill for $3.99 and it is almost like the one the girls used at the shop that they mounted the cutter to and the worms just fall right into the box, hubby just needs to screw on a piece of 1" x 4" wood across the top to mount the cutter onto..How great is that ?
Of course, I couldn't walk out of there without at least a few pieces of thier wonderful overdyed wool.
During our conversation I told her I designed some patterns and she said they were always looking for new patterns to add to their variety. Well, I told Melanie my blog address and my email....
Later after we returned home I got an Email from Melanie ( she is the pattern purchaser for the shop) that they wanted to buy a few each of six different patterns...I wrote back saying yes I'd love to, she emailed me again with an order for a few more of some designs she hadn't seen yet that are on PatternMart.
I am so tickled and excited as this is another means of getting my name and my designs out there a bit more. I've just recently begun to take my business very seriously and improved upon my designs and spreading out into different genres as far as the rug hooking and punch needle , etc. ...
. The constant encouragement of my friends and fellow bloggers is a big reason I even had the guts to go ahead and do it...So now...If any shop owners are interested , let me know......
And here is a sweet gift from Saundra of Woodland Junction...Remember last week she shared a few posts about dyeing wool and I had posed a question about a certain shade of green...Well she sent me a few of the finished results so I will be adding them to a new rug here soon.
I hope you are all enjoying this super Summer like weather...Nice but a little weirded out by it ...???
