Lastly…we have a new employee…i’d like to introduce Gabby…she is 7 weeks and a very light yellow lab. She’ll be at the shop with Mom and I …so it has been tons of fun keeping her entertained and she’s been meeting lots of hoppers and taking LOTS of naps! She does a lot of sleeping on the job!
i’d better get back to the Golden Girls and little Molly.
good afternoon! Mom and i are about to start loading for the Minnesota Quilt Show this weekend…but i thought i would pop in for a quick minute and give you an update.
I’ve gotten row 6 stitched on.
just 2 more rows to go…i’ve gotten the sashing and cornerstones stitched to the row 7 blocks and decided to go ahead and do the same with the row 8 blocks…so once i get started i can get everything stitched on and be done…i have such a long list of little projects i want to stitch that getting this big one out of the way would be really nice.
–no worries in regards to Mrs. Billings…she’s on the agenda…just a slow process because i am loving working with so many different prints.–
**some of you probably know that Melany (my sister) is having a baby…which was due June 7th…so far no baby…but it’s looking like he will arrive early next week. we are so excited…every time her or Ty call…we are like…”anything happening?” hopefully lucy week 102 is the week i become an auntie!!**
anyways…Lucy 6 rows on…2 left. it is so much fun seeing the blocks come together. i just finished up block 47 after many weeks of talking about it. i ended up switching out the white on white for a grey stripe (i lost a white on white honeycomb and could not find any more of the fabric).
and as always…here is a link to the Lucy Boston goodies over on the website…keep in mind that some blocks are already sold out…and with 2 back to back big show weekends…the Lucy Block department may look a little skinny come end of June…so if there is a block you can’t live without…hopefully we still have one of you. Here is the link to anything Lucy Boston on the website…Lucy Boston.
well, it looks like mom is getting started on packing…so i’d best get going.
have a wonderful weekend! if you are down in the rochester area…be sure to stop by the Minnesota Quilt Show and check it out…be sure to stop by our booth and say hi!
happy stitching and have a wonderful June Weekend!
***Sweet Christmas Frosty kits are arriving on Friday…so if you’re on the hunt for one, we’ll have them! Tina will be here on Friday so she’ll be unpacking and getting them out on the floor for us***
good afternoon! i haven’t put any rows on, but am working on getting all the sashings and cornerstones stitched together so once i start adding on the rows i can add them all on.
we had an eventful life since last tuesday…both happy and sad.
Dad started work on May 2nd…Mom and I missed the 1st day back to work since we were up in Fargo vendoring at the Metro Quilt Expo.
May 2nd was the 6 month anniversary of the accident.
Then sadly on Monday, Kandii…our 14 month old chocolate lab passed away. A tumor on the front of her neck that had shrank back in March had grown overnight and by Saturday night it had broke open. Sunday she went down hill fast after Mel and Ty and the girls came out to see her. Wethought maybe she wouldn’t bounce back from this. Mom stayed up with her all Sunday night and in the morning, told me that she had made an appointment for 9:30 am…Tina, Mom, Dad, and I along with her 2 boys Max and Brutus sat with her in the living room telling her that it was ok…she could go. At 9:00 am she crossed the rainbow bridge…apparently someone else needs her more than we do.
after a one week late birthday supper with Monica i’m going home and snuggling up with Max and Brutus until they get up and move.
—-we are loading up for Fergus Falls Festival of Quilts tomorrow…hopefully this coming weekend will be less eventful on the home front!
JUNE events…heads up…we will be closed some days in June…Quilt Shows, a new baby boy, a wedding, and a Renaissance Festival…i’ll figure out the calendar and get back to you.
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!>
