Poppies Block-of-the-Month Club

In this twist on a block-of-the-month club, we will send you 1/2 yard or more of coordinating fabric, more than enough for you to make a 12" finished (12-1/2-inch unfinished) block of your choice. After completing your block, return it to us. We will draw several winners each month at random (number of winners determined by number of participants). Winners will receive at least 12 squares each, depending on the number of players.

We will keep a supply of the block-of-the-month fabric on hand, for winners who wish to have additional fabric to complete their quilt.

This is a great way to try out new quilt patterns, and is good for beginners and experienced quilters alike.

Cost is $7.95 a month, shipping included.

Dreamhorse Workshop

I am an artisan living in the Sierra Nevada foothills of northern California. Currently I am making pillows, 18" X 18", with a square of patchwork, knitting or crochet in the front center.

The patchwork pieces are free-form and spontaneous, sometimes an improvisation on traditional patterns, sometimes just "crazy" patching. Each piece is unique and original. If you wish we can discuss by e-mail the kinds of colors you would like for your pillow. All squares are framed by natural-colored cotton duck and backed with burlap or cotton.

The knit and crochet patches are worked from traditional patterns in cream or ecru-colored cotton yarn. They are framed and backed with cotton duck or upholstery fabrics in natural shades of white or cream. 

All pillow covers are removable and should be dry-cleaned. Any clean, unused piece may be returned for a refund if you are not satisfied. 

The price for the patchwork pillows is $50 and $75 for the knit or crochet pieces. All orders require a $7.00 charge for packaging and shipping. If you are interested, please e-mail me at lindag@inreach.com or send a check to:

Linda Gyulassy
P.O. Box 42
Brownsville, CA 95919

I will acknowledge receipt of your check by e-mail if you provide an e-mail address, and ship your order as soon as possible, probably within one to two weeks, if not sooner.

My Favorite Thimble®

thimbles2.gif (14501 bytes)Combining the best features of metal and leather thimbles, My Favorite Thimble's tough, colorful, rubbery surface grips the needle for wonderful stitch control, while the metal base guarantees that you never have to worry about sticking your finger. This thimble is a breeze to pick up or put down when you need to switch to another task.

My Favorite Thimble comes in five sizes: petite, small, medium, large and x-large. To make each size fit even better, My Favorite Thimble is oval -- just like the end of your finger. Twist it on your finger to slightly loosen or tighten as needed. Size exchanges are no problem if your first choice doesn't fit just like you want.

thimbles1.gif (19936 bytes)My Favorite Thimble comes in two styles. You can choose between the standard royal blue, and my new embellished version on which I have added colorful free-form designs. Both styles work equally well, the embellished one just puts a smile on your face.
