In Ghastlie Manor on Ghastlie Street
there's a Ghastlie family there to meet.
Mathilda Ghastlie and husband too
extend a Ghastlie "how do you do?"

It's a Ghastlie day for a Ghastlie walk

"What's spooky?  What's strange?", you might reply.
It's Ghastlie, my dear. These flowers don't die.
I love that cute little poem my son wrote for me.  It's an expanded version of Alexander Henry's The Ghastlie's.

Speaking of family, Mother's Day is just around the corner.  And flowers are one of the most gifted items on Mother's Day.  One-fourth of the flower and plant purchases made for holidays occur on Mother's Day, according to the Society of American Florists. 33% of Americans reported buying flowers for Mother's Day in 2018.  That's a lot of flowers

But what happens to those flowers? 

They die. 

I love getting flowers and they are gorgeous to look at for about a week.  But then they start to wilt and the petals and pollen start to fall all over my counter and make a mess.  

But if the moms in your life are crafty I've got the solution.
And these flowers don't die.
A Ghastlie Snip - 2019 Mother's Day Collection
This year's Mother's Day kit, A Ghastlie Snip, features two fabrics from Alexander Henry's, The Ghastlie's.  I love these fabrics and the Ghastlie characters.  They are so fun and quirky and since Mother's Day is really all about being a family and celebrating all the moms, I couldn't think of any better fabric than one that featured the Ghastlie mom herself, Mathilda Ghastlie.  For this year's kit, you will be able to choose from two different fabrics; Ghastlie Notions and These Flowers Don't Die.  You will also be able to choose your bag style; either an Adventure Bag (zippered wedge bag) or a Grab & Go Bag (drawstring bag). 

Kits will include the bag style of choice in either Ghastlie Notions or These Flowers Don't Die, a notions pouch, needle cozy and two surprise gifts from me.  

But wait, there's more...
Yarn! Yes yarn, baby!
Just like the bags, there will be two colorways to choose from.  Each colorway is designed specifically to go with it's matching bag but will go equally well with either bag.  They are also designed to work together but will be just as beautiful on their own.

Ghastlie Notions is a beautiful deep caramel gold tonal and These Flowers Don't Die is a spectacular speckled variegated colorway with shades of pink, purple, blue and gold.  Both colorways will be available on my Twigs & Twine HT Single Sock and each 100g skein is 400 yards of 100% Merino High Twist single ply squishiness.

These kits and yarns will be available in the shop on Sunday, April 28th @ 2:00 pm PDT

I can't wait to see you there.

Until then,

Create a little joy wherever you go and Happy Mother's Day to you and all the moms in your life.
