3 New Patterns Now Available!

For the past 3 weeks I have been dealing with a pain in my back! It would just come and go as it pleased and some days I found myself pushing to get things done! Well... today I think the doctor has figured out what my problem is! I'm getting older! LOL Along with that I was working real hard helping Jeff finish up a HUGE wholesale order of 180 wood appliance covers... yes! You read that right!!!!! 180 pieces that needed my special sanding technique applied! As Jeff would complete 20 or 30 at a time I would use the sander .................guess what it did to me after a week or two of evening sanding! Pulled the rhomboid muscle in my upper back! Not a fun thing! Just glad we found out what the problem is and I have a good excuse to take it easy! But....... not for long because these appliance covers are sitting in my garage, which by the way looks like a mini warehouse, waiting to be painted! I will post some pictures below! So yesterday I started working on patterns because typing at the computer is easy on the back! Finished up these 3 patterns which can be purchased right here on my side bar or at The Prim Pattern site or Crafty Avenue! The first one is A new Prim Pillow Pocket for Winter of a snowman holding a star overhead and the saying "Warm Winter Wishes"!
Next we have another Prim Pillow Pocket of a Pot of Penny Flowers!
4 different designs for Winter Time Ornaments! Two with stitched words which read "Warm Winter Wishes" and "Let it Snow", one with an appliqued snowman head and a mini snowman!
Now for the mini warehouse pictures! These are double stacked and we have 2 slice toaster covers, 4 slice toaster covers, toaster oven covers, Kitchen Aide mixer covers, coffee maker covers and some bread boxes! All waiting for me to paint! WOW.... my back hurts! LOL Take note to the Sweet Annie strung across the garage............I hung that clothesline myself which wasn't an easy chore.... if I recall I twisted my back a bit when trying to do that a couple of weeks ago!


  1. That's gonna be a lot of painting! Pretty impressive though. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Holy cats - MY back hurts just looking at all that!! (And how's hubby doing by the way??) Oh I would love some appliance covers....don't think they'd fit on my counters though....I'm so space-challenged. Hope you heal up soon and get your warehouse cleared out!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  3. Holy moly, that's a big order! Try sitting and
    maybe painting with your other hand, with a small roller, maybe that will help.

    Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

  4. Holy Moly! You better get busy girl, lol! That's a whole lot of boxes. Actually you better take it easy. There's not much you can do for a pulled muscle except rest and I don't see that happening for you in the near future. Just take lots of breaks and don't over-do it.

    I love the new patterns you've designed... adorable!!

    Take care girl~

  5. Holly Cats ~ no wonder your back hurts!
    Beautiful creations!
    Prim Blessings

  6. OMGoodness Teresa! Congrats on the huge order. I know what that sander can do to a body besides make us feel old... lol. Well, except for that pain, hopefully all that work will keep you fit :o)

  7. Goodness Teresa, seems we tend to destroy our bodies with these talents we have...I get pains in my fingers/arms from stitching and you get pains in your back and shoulders from sanding! What's up with

    Your new creations are wonderful and for sure they will sell!

    I am so happy you have such a huge wholesale order...lots of work but it says a whole lot for your products.

    p.s. I just contacted Crafty Avenue!


  8. That is a lot of painting, but I can't wait until they are ready. I really need a coffee maker cover!


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
