Finally getting caught up!

I am sorry that it has been awhile since I have updated!

We went to Williamsburg,VA last week - the gardens were beautiful.  I enjoyed it so much that it made me want to plant flowers and heirloom veggies! Came home with a great book (autographed - so  special) by the gardener for the Williamsburg gardens.  I think the highlight of the trip was getting to talk to him about the plants in his garden. 

I took advantage of the cloudy, cool Saturday we had this week and over did it planting flowers, now I am paying for it everytime I

The hummingbirds are back - I love watching them.  I have to admit - I did sit and watch the birds on Monday - my Mother's Day present to me.  I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!

There are some new things in the shop:

  Believe or not, now is the time to think about projects for Fall & Christmas!

We already have some great fall prints but the above 3 bolts just came in.  Great time to plan table toppers, place mats or a cut fall wall hanging. There are several coordinating marbles that go with them.

I love birds especially Redbirds!  Already had one quilter buy to make a tree skirt!  Wouldn't a table cloth or place mats be wonderful!
    The Fall & Christmas prints are only $5.99 yard - Great quality fabric and Great prices!

Mettler Silk Finish Cotton Thread Display!!!  These are variegated threads - great for applique and/or machine quilting.  Two sizes to choose from.

Coming soon - 1930's Timeless Treasures Fabrics!!!  Been searching for some 30's fabrics for a while at a good price - I finally got the call today about these!!!

Block of the month is going good!  Had one quilter bring by the first 3 blocks to show me - they were so beautiful!  I can't wait to see more!  I have the next 2 blocks ready for pick up.  I have got to get busy - I am behind!

Now alittle show & tell:

Chris Duncan is making an adorable Whinie the Pooh baby quilt - how cute is this!  I know many of you will remember Chrisy from Stitches from the Heart!  I enjoyed talking to her so much today!

Happy Quilting!
