Shop Hop 2015......

Well, last time I showed you our Row By Row Experience project.  Tonight, I am going to show you our 2015 Shop Hop block.  The fabrics had a real *fall* feel and I just got this picture in my head of a girl throwing leaves up in the air.  Sew, we did a silhouette picture and added the colored leaves.  Shop Hop is June 24th-28th this year and the hours are the same as last year: Wednesday-Saturday 9:00-8:00 and Sunday 10:00-5:00.  We will also be hosting the EverGreen Quilt Guild's raffle quilt Wednesday-Saturday.  Jan F brought the quilt to our Tea Party yesterday....all I can say is WOW....it is really stunning!  Who wouldn't want to win this!?!  Shop Hop is a lot of work for the shop owners and staff, but always a lot of fun too!  We're almost ready to bag our 1200+ kits.....always a good feeling when those are put to bed.

Well, you've been around here long enough to know that nothing says June quite like Christmas fabric!  Yup....it's starting to arrive, and so are Halloween fabrics too.  French General *Joyeux Noel* is set to arrive at the end of next week and will join a few other collections already here.  We're hoping to get a minute or two to work on some projects, but realistically, it may not happen until after Hop.

Jan and I are nearing the reveal point on our block of the month project.  I am hoping to get the center sewn together tomorrow and then it's just pretty much the outer borders and a bit of applique.  Sharon  has agreed to quilt it for us as soon as we can get to that point.....shooting for next Wednesday, so keep your fingers crossed!

Well, the weather is supposed to be downright summer-like this weekend!  Do you have plans?
