Lucy week 100

as we get our 2nd round of storms this afternoon i thought i would take a moment and pop in and give you a Lucy update.

I have finished putting on row 5 and have started stitching the sashing and cornerstones onto row 6.

Lucy’s Summer Cottage…5 rows

Mom and Tina are heading down to Sioux Falls for the Siouxland Ren Fest…so i’ll have all weekend to this hard…maybe get row 6 on….maybe! or maybe i’ll switch over to some embroidery or the frothy yoyos…hmmm…

Quilt Minnesota Fabric has arrived…we’ve been so busy with family stuff over this last weekend…saturday was a grad party on dad’s side and a wedding on mom’s and sunday was the day to finish up the fence at mel and ty’s before the baby comes…so we’ve been doing a lot of running around like crazy ladies. Be sure to pop in and get your order placed and cut and set aside…so you won’t have to wait in line during the hop! More on our incentive and the dollar ditty info coming later this week!

New Christmas fabrics are arriving…yes…i know…Christmas already…but it is super sweet…

Merry Merry Snow Days by Bunny Hill is of course delightful. Her signature style of tiny delicate prints and fun colors make this a must! We’ve ordered in extra mini charms so we can whip up a Confetti and have lots of kits for you. It also blends wonderfully with Swell Christmas, Good Tidings, and Sweet Christmas…it is a perfect combination if you are looking for the retro, classic Christmas feel.

Merry Merry Snow Days…mini charms

Merry Merry Snow Days features a combination of pink, snow white, grey, taupe, spearmint, evergreen, and red. our cherry-picked yardage is arriving thursday, and i’ve gotten them online already…i’m actually ahead of things for a hot minute!

i thought i had already posted info on holiday lodge but a look through the blog posts shows i have not…so here it is…lots of charcoal, red, white, and green…perfect for a quick sleigh ride throw…Mom has a project planned, so be on the lookout…yardage, panel, and curated bundles are online and ready to ship…here.

our holiday lodge curated bundles include the panel and 7 fat quarters

looks like it’s almost time to hit the road…i’m having dinner with my longest friend…25+ years…we are getting some Chinese in Cold Spring (if you are looking for some good Chinese food…the Phoenix Too in Cold Spring is yummy…we’ve been a loyal customer since they were in the Crossroads Mall.)

have a wonderful evening! ———april & mickey
