2020 goals

good afternoon!

i’m just about to package up our online orders, have lunch, and crack open our newest arrival…Bramble Cottage and thought i would pop in for a quick check-in.

i’m sure before i’m done writing this post i will have done all 3 of those things above….

a few 2020 things…i’ve updated our events page. you can check out our shows and shop hops there. also…most show dates we will be closed.

the bookstore and gallery have changed their hours…they will be closed on Monday and Tuesday with normal hours the rest of the week. THIS WILL NOT AFFECT OUR SHOP HOURS. we will still have the same hours as before…just closed if we are at a show since Monica will not be around to keep an eye on things.

however, our day off during the week will now be different. Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday both of us will be working the shoppe. Mom’s day off will now be Wednesday and my day off will now be Thursday. It will take me awhile to get used to this.

we’ve done a little rearranging…and honestly, aren’t we always doing a little rearranging? well, we got rid of our “office” cuz it was more of a catchall…we tossed things we’ve had since we moved to this location which was like 11 years ago.

we are doing a little painting…adding a few new pieces of furniture…once our rearrange is complete…then a little (or a lot) of vacuuming and maybe a coffee break and dare i say a new quilty project!

(i’m back from the post office and just finished lunch…)

we have a few of those quilty projects i mentioned above in the queue and hopefully once we get all the painting, moving around, and re-displaying out of the way we can get a project done.

looks like i won’t get Bramble Cottage unpacked before i finish up this post…however, i do have some bundles to share.

Valentine’s Day is coming up quick…(we have a wedding the 15th so the shop will be closed)…in celebration we have a couple bundles and my Cottage Hearts pillow kitted up again…

Cottage Hearts…i, as a rule, am not a big fan of hearts which i’m sure i mention every time this pillow pops up somehwere…however, i LOVE this pillow, and when i see it around the shoppe i begin to think of making a quilt. not sure if i would do 16 heart patches with sashing, or just 16 heart patches straight set without sashing. i debate and debate then decide to focus on the projects i have started or already have ready to start or that project i drool over online (ahem…Stonefields) and put it to the back of my mind. but alas, it creeps back in.

is a Cottage Hearts quilt something that you would want? are you looking for a heart quilt to add to your life? feel free to let me know.

either way…the pillow is done, kitted, on the bed in the window…nab the kit here if you missed our last year.

a few bundles to lighten your stash and perfect for that Valentine’s Day project you’ve been wanting to start.

low volume valentine would be perfect for a red/pink version of Melany Square…you can find that post here. just add in several more prints and get started! low volume valentine is available here.

My Redwork Garden…classic, creamy vanilla, and Bunny Hill…truly delightful. so pretty i chose a picture of these bundles to be my header for the Valentine season this year. so crisp and pretty.

This bundle…Red Velvet Blondies is a pantry pack (4–1/2 yards)…perfect for stash building, civil war projects, Christmas/Valentine’s Day, or mix in with other low volume prints for a fun low volume project. Grab your Red Velvet Blondies here.
