A week in review...

Oh yea it happened, I lost my voice. Well not all of my voice but enough to screw up my singing. My son and Melissa (Inish Knits) share April 13th as their birthdays. So I did my duty and sang the entire Happy Birthday song to both of them. K.C. recognized me but Melissa wasn't sure what was coming at her from the voicemail. I do love to sing if only I could.

I thought I would update you on new info, fresh from the truck arrivals and what I finished this week. Let's begin with New Info. Judy Bell (owner of Liberty Bell Quilts) made it home for a short visit this past weekend. As many of you know her husband has had a bone marrow transplant. His blood counts are going up but he is experienceing some GVHD and breathing diffuculty. He remains in the hospital with Judy at his side. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Did I mention it was great to see Judy? She made coffee and we all know her coffee is the best in Cedar (I would like to take credit for second best coffee - CAN'T).

Here are the new arrivals. Michael Miller fabrics (which happen to be made in the USA) in 3 new collections, Andalucia, Flights of Fancy amd Farmers Market.

We also recieved a lovely collection from "In The Beginning" fabric called Annabelle (a light green, pink and dabs of blue).Mother's Day is almost here why not get Mom (yourself) a special rotary cutter, mat and Best Press (all lavendar and only $28.00 for the 3 piece set).
That is it for the new arrivals. Now on to what I got fininshed. Notice the halter in the above picture (Amy Butler's new pattern). There is a sweet summer skirt made out of the
Andalucia line put this skirt with a cute T-shirt and you are ready for a summer stroll. I also made a grocery bag for Earth Day next week (25% off Sale Room Fabric on April 22). The 6 Hour Quilt is done, it took 6 weeks but who is counting. I will post pictures later.

Well enough of my rambling...Have a great day!

Where Are My Peeps????

Well bad me, I didn't post last week but ..............................

I only received 2 comments on my last blog. I know I have more peeps out there than that. Heck my Facebook profile shows I have 58 friends. Look at the picture of my peeps looking for quilting friends in the snow. There are still 8 more $5.00 gift certificates. I will even take a sarcastic comment. Here is a photo of the Purple Peeps just waiting for Easter and all their quilting friends.

Last weekend I went on my Guilds Retreat at a local camp. I worked on a free Amy pattern using the Daisy Chain line of fabric. The Amy Butler line is very popular and her web site provides many free patterns. There were 23 quilters at our retreat. We all had fun and some of us even broke out in song (Bye Bye Miss American Pie was the longest and was most hated and loved of the songs).
Last week I also finished this backpack, it is an Indigo Junction pattern called Boxy Backpack. I used the charm pack collection from Moda called Collection for a Cause. The cause is Diabetes(I am a Type 1 insulin dependant diabetic) which has gone on long too long without a cure. So be sure to support this cause by purchasing a charm pack.

I had my friend Melissa from Inish Knits take the picture (look at all her great yarn).

Well that is it for last week. I finished one project started 2 new projects and have 89 UFO's at home. Oh my gosh!!!! it is the UPS man with a package. Be sure to come in and see us soon!!!!
