Woolgathering......

One might think that I had been *woolgathering* since I haven't posted in a while!  Where did that word come from, anyway?  Well, evidently *woolgathering* was going in search of bits of wool that sheep may have caught and left on bushes.  As you might imagine, it was a pretty futile endeavor.....but my woolgathering was not fruitless!  I say all of this to let you know that we just put out 60 new pieces of hand dyed wool from Olympic Dye Works on the Olympic Peninsula.  It took us a while to figure out, but we managed to cut the larger pieces down into two sizes, since so many of you really only need a smaller amount.  Jan took some home and is playing with a pattern in the newest Quilts and More magazine.  You'll have to take a look at them the next time you're in....they are absolutely gorgeous and rich in color!

What else has been happening?  Well, it took most of last week, but we managed to get the shop put back together after the sale.  Thanks to so many of you who came!  We made some room and some of the new fabrics we had on order have started to arrive.  There's a great new coffee group and some bolts of Coca Cola fabric too.  As I mentioned, the new Quilts and More magazine is here, as well as the latest American Patchwork and Quilting.  Fat Tuesday is on the horizon, so we're busy getting ready for that.  It's Tuesday, February 17th this year.....and we're cutting the last of the fat quarters for you.  I'll be sending an e-mail reminder next week and getting ready to set my alarm for zero dark thirty!  Okay....got to run....have a few more *chores* to do before bedtime.  Have a wonderful week!
