Well, it's been sometime since I've had a chance to chat with everyone! What a busy time I've had lately...!!! I don't know which project to work on first... let's see.. I'm making some beautiful quilts for our shows... and for some reason I seem to pick out those quilts that have 15,000 pieces to them (that's a little more than what is really in the quilt... tee hee!), then... I'm working on some redwork designs... plus trying to stitch the samples... working on designing a fabric line... this has always been a fun desire of mine to accomplish!

W e still have wonderful fabric arriving >>>> LOOK :) >>>

Heather Bailey!!!
These are just a sample of the wonderful prints from Heather! She is a fabulous designer and the colors she uses are awesome!!! Oh by the way... I put in an order for Amy Butler's new line of fabric... 41 bolts!! We'll be sure and let you know when they arrive... she's always a favorite!!
I'm still working on the "Weight Watchers" deal... man... I hate to diet...!!! Although...if you haven't tried their fudge bars... you must... they are the best! My husband is hooked on them!!
Make sure you visit our web site and shop until you drop.. we have beautiful kits that we've added We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
I'm off to put the binding on a quilt... aaahhhh work is never done...
See you soon!!

The weekend is almost over....

Hi All! Well, this was a wonderful weekend for everyone! We got to spend the holiday weekend with our families.... or sewing !!! Our employee holiday sewing weekend is wonderful... (it's now Sunday morning..) I woke up early and was eager to get my day started. Threw some clothes in the washer, made my coffee, let the cat out to play in the garage (she's an inside kitty), read my email... and now chatting with each of you!

I've been a busy girl working on "Plantation Road" a Bonnie Blue pattern... it's absolutely wonderful... and VERY, VERY, VERY BIG! I'm adding the large 8 1/2" borders this morning and it will be ready for quilting! Then I'll wash it... dry it... and it will be all scrunchy...which is how we love our quilts to look!! We always get comments at our shows... "why do your quilts look so much warmer and attractive?" We try to have them all washed prior to a show... it gives them a proven GREAT look that customers LOVE!

The girls have been piecing quilt tops, hand embroidery, locker rug hooking, traditional wool rug hooking, long-arm quilting... you name it... we've worked on it this weekend! It's so much fun with us all together... what a bunch of sweet, lovable, funny, talented kooks I have working with me! It just doesn't get any better !!!

I'm really excited about a new venture.... I'm working on designing some embroidery patterns.. either red work or multi-color threads!! I've found a digitizing program that I need to order and learn how to use (in my spare time... hah!). Keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer that this old mind can grasp this new technology... scary isn't it? HA!!

Have a marvelous Sunday on the last day of this holiday season... I will... I'm going to the store to sew ALL DAY!!! YIPPEE!!!!

Hugs to all!
