Thursday, October 22

Boy...it sure seems like the days just go by faster and faster around here!!
We've been working on many different projects here in the shop, and sort of feel like
we don't have much to show for it!!
Next week we'll begin our Stash Society club meetings. They will meet in the shop
and collect patterns to use up that stash they have at home. (Anybody know about those?!)
In light of that, Darci's mom was over yesterday going through the shop stash.
Can you believe we have a stash?!?!?
Well...if you didn't believe it do!! She spent a good majority of the day going through that lovely stash of ours and today Darci and Lacey went looking through what she bagged up.
Ever have that feeling that although you haven't used the fabric you just can't quite part from it because you might need it in that special project?
We believe it was a very good thing she did the sorting or we may have had the box
just as full at the end of the day as it was in the beginning!
Anyways...the project below is one of the things the gals will work on.
Notice the beautiful snowflakes in the centers of those squares.
It truly is hard to believe that we've seen a bunch of those in October..


Although the calendar says it's October, it feels more like the end of November.
However, Darci just loves the fall and this month created her monthly wool pattern
to reflect a few of the things that she loves about it.

Aside from the snowflakes and the fall we've been busy dancin'.
Can you imagine Darci and Lacey bustin' out the moves here at the shop?
Many of you can't, but on our "Wiggles and Giggles" event in the shop you just may be surprised!!!

Our dancing really has come in the the "Twister" template. This wonderful little template gives you twisting pinwheels (or as some of you know it: Square Dance). It is a wonderful way to use charm squares. You start off with regular charm squares sewn together with a border and use this fun little tool to cut our the "twisters" and sew them back together. The before/after change is fun to see and this project goes together super quick. We are expecting the arrivals of the template that works fabulous with charms as well as one to use with layer cakes!

When we were in Pittsburgh this spring Lacey fell in love with the new Aster Manor line.
It is due in the shop sometime this month, although the end of the month is next week!!
It is truly a beautiful collection of reds, pinks, browns and tans and was a must have in her stash.
(I don't believe she'll part with her Astor Manor Stash!)
Anyhow, this table runner by Heather Mulder-Peterson of Anka's Treasures was truly one of a very fun and easy table runner to piece together.

Until next time ~The PastThyme Gals
