Time is flying by, Summer will be here soon!

Whew, where did April go?, Next week May is here, and next thing you know summer will be here. I love this time of year. I always want to go out and get some pansies and want to get started spreading mulch. It feels more like the end of May instead of the end of April. While I want to get out and garden I still have the desire to do nothing better than sit and sew.

The Bus trip to Chicago was so fun. I took many pictures and I promise I will get them posted to the blog very soon. We will definitely do the Chicago trip next year and promise to make it better than ever. We have been moving the store around and doing some spring cleaning to make room for a couple new fabric lines heading our way. Busy weekend ahead. Check back for photos and updates. Have a great weekend.

Oh my gosh, We are tired!

This has been a very hectic couple of weeks. Brooke and I went to the Goodtime Quilters retreat down in Piketon. We vended and sewed and laughed and ate and sewed some more. It was alot of fun! Here are some pictures of the Goodtimers quilting having fun!









Here are some great pictures of the Columbus Metropolitan Quilters Show from last weekend. Mom, Joyce, Terry and Kathy vended at this show. I helped set up on Thursday and helped tear down on Sunday. The CMQ girls are extremly talented and there were so many cool quilts that I couldn't decide which ones to photograph.










Ok, so this is not an award winning quilt, but this is my quilt!, and it is done, (yes it was a whopping 36 x 36). It was for the Kids Quilts Challange. My goal this year is to have a quilt in every guild that I belong to. (that would be three, finished, bound with no strings attached)






This was the opportunity quilt, and yes, I did the middle peach colored block.... notice I didn't photograph it too close. Since I am not yet an expert on hand applique I had to do a couple of blocks to practice. I think I just may make my own queen size quilt with all of my practice blocks....lol , don't hold your breath... I'll keep you posted.



This pretty quilt was done by my friend Ann Timms.

This weekend we have our mystery quilt sew in, and next Thursday Janet, Sharon and I are taking the busload to Chicago!! Woo hoo! we are going to have a great time!

Expect some great Chicago pictures!

Plan on coming to the shop on May 20th for the CMQ Kids Quilt Sew In. We will serve sloppy joes, bring a snack to share!


Have a great weekend!
