Hot enough for you?

It certainly is for me! And while we're fortunate enough to have central air in our house, it just doesn't do much for the second-story bedrooms... which is where my computer and sewing/work spaces are (naturally!). But I'm plugging away. I have a batch of ideas all lined up on my mental "to-do" list, and although it's been slow-going, I'm working on turning all these ideas into finished products... and patterns! In fact, I'm going to try really hard to get these items and patterns finished up and made available just as soon as I can. There will likely be a couple of dolls, some cross-stitch and wool-felt goodies, and a few different quilt designs as well. As long as the temperatures and time permit (my gosh, it's been a busy summer around here!), I'll work as much as I can and shoot for soon.

This time of year is tough for me anyway, as while I don't much care for the extreme heat, I am absolutely head-over-heels crazy about gardening. So yep, I'm spending a fair amount of my time in the gardens lately. I adore making and designing quilts, dolls, etc.... But growing perennials and especially fruits and veggies is my biggest addiction! However, most of my gardening work is done in the early mornings, before the day starts heating up. Once the thermometer starts showing more red, I head indoors, close up the house, turn on the AC, and hit the sewing room (or run errands, grocery shop, vacuum, do laundry, cook ... *sigh!*).

I also placed another order with Maureen, and we will have a couple of adorable new patterns from Sweet Meadows Farm available at Hannah's by the first of the month. I can't wait... you'll love them! :-)

That's it for today. I'm going to grab a lemonade and hit the sewing room for a bit! Happy weekend! :-)

We're still here! :-)

Okay, yes, it's been MONTHS since I posted... bad, bad Jodi! I'll try to do better. But please know that Hannah's is still in operation and still has a nice supply of fabrics, patterns, & other sewing & stitching supplies in all your favorite country, primitive, and colonial styles. We have patterns and supplies for sewing quilts, dolls, and ornies/misc.; wool felt and penny rug patterns; a nice supply of patterns, linen, and embroidery flosses for your cross-stitch/stitchery needs and wants; and more.

Remember too that Hannah's is a "bootstrap" operation, located in Bend, Oregon, USA. For the time being, I'm re-investing ALL proceeds into getting our store well-stocked! We want to make Hannah's one of your favorite places to shop online! :-)

I'm going to try to be a better blogger, and we'll try very hard to keep adding more great products toward making Hannah's one of the BEST online craft-supply stores specifically for those of us who LOVE primitive, colonial, and country decor.

Happy Summer!
