good morning! what a wonderful day…i just love foggy, rainy mornings…a most perfect lazy day, however, i have some things to do before i can sit back and relax.
First up…Susanna’s Scraps arrived thursday and i set to work cutting bundles and getting it online. yardage made it online yesterday…the custom bundle today…you can see it all here. factory-cut bundles will be shipping next week.
The rest of what’s going on this weekend is family stuff. mom and dad are heading to a birthday party tonight (for which we are finishing up the quilty birthday present today), i’ll be getting ready for the baby shower we are throwing for Melany tomorrow. then we can sit back and relax a little before our back to back shows in May. better get back to work…
—april, mickey, dale, tina, melany, tyler, and the fur babies…kandii, brutus, max, lola, bella…and the little baby that’s on the way…Mel and Ty are planning on finding out what she’s having on the 27th…
it is the last work day of 2017 here in the shoppe!
man…2017 has gone by fast.
Mom and I would like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who has stopped by throughout the year…whether you make it to Paynesville to visit our storefront, see us at shows, frequent our etsy shop, website, blog, facebook, or instagram…we appreciate your conversation, inspiration, likes, follows, comments, tags, and shares.
THANK YOU…from the bottom of our hearts! we truly could not do this without you!
good afternoon! I apologize for my absence and the lack of new projects.
March 28th my grandma passed away with Dad and Uncle Terry by her side. Last week was spent mostly with family both here and in North Dakota where she had grown up. Mom, Dad, and I thank you for your condolences.
we are starting to get back in the swing of things…I have a pile of both customer and shoppe quilts to get to and have started to whittle down that pile!
the stack of projects that need patterns and kits has started to make me panicky…so i’ll start work on those as well…hopefully i’ll have a little more to show you next week.
I do have some new precuts…charms and F16th bundles of Lizzie’s Legacy…with yardage arriving on Friday!
there are a few more goodies arriving this week…they’ve already been added to the list… <YAY!>
mom and I hope you have a safe and happy New Year’s.
we are busy getting our spring and summer quilt shows finalized, so if you can’t get to the shop be sure to check out our events page and maybe you can stop by and see us at a quilt show.
as for new projects in the New Year…we have some fabulous ideas and even a summery themed Quilt Along that will start in February sometime…but more on that.
our Countryside Quilt Along started yesterday…we hope you can take part in it. the project is perfect for using up all those orphaned 5 inch squares or round up some charm packs or layer cakes.
as for resolutions in the New Year…I am going to try to be healthier and spend more time doing the things I love and less time worrying about things I cannot change. (I am also going to finish my Lucy Boston by the Minot Quilt Show. I already have 3 rows of blocks sewn together, so I’ve sewn 21 of 56 blocks.)
I’m also going to try and do more on pinterest…even though it is like a vortex and when I get sucked in I am there for hours…there are so many ideas and inspiration and wonderfulness that I don’t want to miss out on anything. maybe i’ll even try and whittle down my boards–or maybe not.
i’ll leave you with a picture from the first post of 2014…on January 4th…we finished up the Sylvia blocks and I posted pictures. Sylvia is still bagged and waiting to be sewn together. Did anyone join us when we worked on these…did you finish or is she still waiting? maybe we can get her finished up in 2015 too…wouldn’t she be a sight? all those lovely florals on a bleached muslin.
we are closing early today…3pm. we hope you have safe and happy new year. i’ll see you in 2015~
