Hand Embroidered Sheep Buttons

Look what I found! These adorable little buttons (3/4") are hand embroidered sheep on linen. I only have one set of 4. If you want this set, let me know and I'll send it to you - $20 total. Since they are handmade they vary ever so slightly from the ones in the photograph. Hand made in USA.

New Book from Country Bumpkin

Well, we just got the word that Country Bumpkin is coming out with a new book called Blissful Beginnings: Embroidered Blankets to Cherish. It's due out in December and looks like a winner to me. I'll post more details about it in our October 1st newsletter. In the meantime, here's a look at the cover.

ASE #100 Update

We were expecting the final issue of ASE magazine and the Index later this month, but just got the following message from Country Bumpkin: "Just to keep you updated we had 2 shipping delays with AS&E # 100 and the Index. Unfortunately delivery to us will now be the end of September so you are looking at a delivery of early October. Sorry about that. Unfortunately vessel delay's are out of our control." So, I'm now planning on early to mid-October for delivery.
