Just *spoolin* around......

Life has been busy around here.....and this was one of the things I've been working on.  You may have seen my Button Jars made from the same Dot, Dot Dash charm square pack from Moda.  Both the button jars and these spools are included in the pattern and can both be made from the same charm pack!  (Are you old enough to remember the *two, two, two mints in one* commercial?!?)  Anyway, both projects were fun to make and we do still have a few charm packs and patterns in stock with more patterns on order.

We've been keeping our noses to the grindstone around here and trying to FINISH some things that were started and then got pushed aside for one reason or another.  I'll try and show you a few of them in the next week or so.  I know that my spools and button jars still need to be quilted and bound, but thought I should hang them before we don't have any fabric or patterns left!  Speaking of patterns, we had finally gotten our backorder of Elizabeth Hartman's Fancy Forest patterns last week.  Well, they sold out in one day, so I do have a few more hopefully headed this way!  I'm pretty sure we still have a few of her Fancy Fox patterns, though.

Have some more book-work things to get done tonight, so I'll be signing off for now!  Hope you have a wonderful week.....

Fat Tuesday 2016.........

We've been pretty busy the last couple of weeks.  The Anniversary Sale was so much fun!  Then, there was the *put everything back together and order what we sold out of* week.  And then this week we've spent putting the finishing touches on our annual Fat Tuesday Sale.  That's coming up next Tuesday, February 9th from 6:00 am to 6:00 p.m.  We've got thousands of fat quarters all rolled and in their boxes waiting your arrival!  It's always such a fun (albeit long) day for me.  Everyone is having such a good time....I always wish I could record all of the happy sounds to play for all of you!

What else has been happening?  Well.....we had a really fun Tea Party Wednesday and then for *dessert* we got all 18 bolts of the new *Flock Together* line from Free Spirit Fabrics.  It's designed by Australian Kathy Doughty....did you get to come to the trunk show we had with her last June?  She's one fabulous lady and her fabric line reflects that!  Jan and I have been scheming as to what to make with it....although, we better not procrastinate too long, as it's been flying off the shelf already!

Tomorrow promises to be another fun-fabric-filled day.  Sharon has a full house for her The Process of.....Color class tomorrow morning and then we have a group of excited beginning quilters for Diane's first Beginning Quilting class in the afternoon.  Hope your Saturday will be equally fun!!
