X O X O......

 With Valentine's Day at the end of last week, this is perfect timing!  I've been hanging on to these two quilts that we have as samples.  I had to wait until the magazines came that they are featured in.  Finally.....late yesterday the mail person came in with them ~ YES!!  Our talented customer/friend Tonya Alexander has these two baby quilts in the current McCall's Quilting magazine!  And she was kind enough to let us borrow the quilts for display.  Nikki Crisp (Country Quilter) quilted them for her.  Congratulations to both of you!  This quilt would be a wonderful gift for a new baby.  And look at the borders.  Don't you love the way she mitered the corners and used that jumbo ric rac?  You might remember me telling you that we just got quite a few more colors of this ric rac......now you know *the rest of the story* ~ right?!?

What else is happening?  Well, we've been busy getting ready for Fat Tuesday.  It's just two weeks from this Tuesday!  Going to be a lot of fun....we've got a super selection for you this year.  I'll show you a picture soon of another project Harriet, Jan and I have been fiddling around with too.  And I have been having sew much fun playing in my Kansas Trouble scraps.  I have the center all done and now I'm working on the borders.  I'll get a picture of that too.  And...there's another project rattling around in my head that will hopefully become one of our Dollar menus.  Once I am convinced I can pull it off, I'll let you in on it ~ okay?  Speaking of which....think I will head down to my sewing area and see if I can make some headway on that right now!  Have a super week everyone!
