Updates

Ok....so it's hard to believe the last time I post was Christmas Eve.  The shop has kept me busy.  Classes started this month.  I feel like I am chasing my tail.  But...I would have it no other way.
I moved some furniture around shop.
I will post pictures tomorrow.
I added the class list to my blog as well.  I will try to post the class schedule to the blog also.
  I'm learning on the fly, ya'll.  (I know I'm from California)
Anywho.....I just received in Heritage Hollow and Butter Churn, both by Kim Diehl.  And of course, my tea dyed muslin.
Along with the classes, I have been working on new patterns.  Lots in the works.  I will post some pictures tomorrow (ok, let's not push it).  I will post pictures on Thrusday of the new patterns.


Have a wonderful day......and stitch somethin' wonderful

Some finishes.....

I have been busy working on new patterns and finishing some old.
The first quilt is my Christmas quilt.  This top was completed in 2005, quilted in 2011
and the binding was completed last week.  Who needs time tables.
The yellow one is a quilt top that was completed in 2000 by my girlfriend Brook.  She gave it to me in 2009 while I was helping her pack her home for her move.  It was quilted along with my Christmas quilt.  I finished the binding last night.
Now....the third quilt is my daughters'.  This one happened because I found myself on Pinterest waaayyyy to long and my daughter wondered into my room, looked over my shoulder and saw a quilt she had to have.  Well, took me all of 4 minutes to design it, she cut the fabric and 2-1/2 days later she has a quilt top.



Also, this is Je' Taime (I Love You) quilt pattern is now available, as well as the kit.  The kit $24.

I have more coming....
