Come on and safari with me......

Okay....you know I used to say I was *older than dirt* but I changed that to being *classic* right? So *Surfin' Safari* by the Beach Boys is part of my heritage since it came out in 1962! Sew....that has absolutely nothing to do with this picture....well, other than this is a panel from the *Safari* line of fabric from Northcott. Jan put it together for us and quilted it. Then Harriet and I took turns sewing binding on it. Turned out super cute and would be a wonderful quick gift for a little one, don't you think?

What a difference a week makes, huh?  Last Thursday I sat out in the backyard in the glorious sunshine and sewed on a binding....this afternoon I sat in my chair with a quilt over my legs and the gas fireplace on for a while as I sewed down a binding!  Oh well.  The weather people say it will be a lovely Sunday for all of you Moms out there!

Things have been busy at the shop.  We've gotten some great new fabrics lately and have been fiddling with the racks to make everything fit!  An Asian group came yesterday with koi, I think.  Some fall fabrics have started arriving with their warm rich tones.....I know....it hasn't even been summer yet!  And FYI, we just got the Quilt Sampler magazine a day or two ago.  I know lots of you enjoy getting that, so don't wait too long.  I brought home a copy of a new book we received today called *patchwork loves embroidery* and I can't wait to look at all the pretty ideas.  Oh, how I wish there were more time in each day!
