i recently bought a couple of new tools for my embroidery work: a floor stand for my hoops and this LED book light. light weight enough to clip onto my hoop, the neck is flexible so i can get the light exactly where i need it. the floor stand comes in handy for stitches that require two hands (knots!). it was affordable and so far it seems perfectly sturdy and well made. 

my winter collection is set to launch on november 24th. yep -- that's black friday. i always offer a sale to celebrate the launch of a new collection, and since this one coincides with black friday, small biz saturday, AND cyber monday, i'll be sending you a free shipping offer that you can use all weekend long. the winter collection will include owlette, moth, and november's mandala pattern. stay tuned!

thanks to your generous and crafty hearts, i just donated another $50 to the houston food bank! deep in the heart is still available, and all proceeds from its' sale go to HFB to help families recover from hurricane flooding. see below for more info.
