Happy Easter!... at this rate our May flowers are going to be great

It is hard to believe that April is almost over and May is here. This year is flying by. I am really looking forward to warmer and dryer weather.

Deb started a new hand embroidery group last week. they are focused on getting the Vintage Halloween project from Crab Apple Hill done.


It is cute, but I am not a hugh Halloween fan so I did not join in. But seeing everyone embroidering made me want to get started on a new project.....so........ Jenny one of our notions/fabric/everything rep. shared with me some of the newest patterns... and I found my new embroidery project, or two new embroidery projects.


Both are from Birdbrain designs, the first one is "Quilts In the Garden" and the second one is the "Redwork Stich Sampler"  I think they are both cute, and I am excited about getting them started.

Jenny brought all kinds of new patterns. I have been looking for a new pin cushion pattern and I found a cute one that I think alot of people will like.

It is called "Who Knew".  I have a recent graduate in mind for one of these. Can't wait to get it started too.

So many projects, so little time.

Have a great Weekend and a Happy Easter! Gotta go start stitching!

Busy, Time Flying By and Yeah Spring Just Might Be Here!

Hey Everyone!

Where does time go? The days at the shop fly by, and the time off from the shop goes even faster.
Kyle is out sick today so I am posting to the blog.

Last Thursday and Friday we hosted a bus to the International Quilt Festival. It was so much fun and so inspiring. The quilts were absolutely amazing. I took many pictures and will post some here on the blog.
This week I needed to re-create our block for the Central Ohio Shop Hop Quilt. Here is a sneak peak of our block:

Each shop has to do a 12 inch finished block that will be set with the other blocks to create a cool quilt that will be raffled off at the December Round Robin event.

We are excited about the events we have coming up. This year we are having a pajama party  - in house retreat for our quilt spree event.  It will start Friday, May 6 at 10:00 in the AM and last until 2:00 AM Saturday morning and then will resume Saturday at 10:00 AM untill Midnight. We will have make it - take it tables and hourly deals and steals. Pizza Friday night and a yummy dinner Saturday night (menu to be determined). Mystery Quilt, Experimenting with the Wedding Ring pattern to create a table runner, and a purse class will be our projects. $10 fee for Friday night will include Pizza and pop and the Wedding ring clinic and Saturdays $45 fee includes dinner, the mystery quilt pattern and the purse clinic.

The Mystery is Chicago X from Debbie Caffrey. We will announce the purse pattern very soon. There will be a prize for the best jammies.  Expect to hear more very soon!
