We'll start by saying THANK YOU to all of the wonderful people who came into the shop during the state hop. It was quite a couple weeks and we enjoyed almost every minute of it!! We have found ourselves ever so slowly trying to get back into the loop of being able to create a mess for new sewing projects!!!
We showed our apron in the last post and were THRILLED by the number of names that accumulated on it. If anyone was curious-the farthest place listed was Japan and as the 50 states are concerned Alaska was the farthest out. It was always fun to find out where everyone was from and how they came about coming to travel our Minnesota shops.
I firstly want to apologize for the photo--believe me no matter how hard I try and retake the picture it uploads like this. . .and today I am going to let technology win.
However, I want to point out the intended object, being the quilt, out of Ruby by Bonnie & Camille and the wonderful Chenille-It bias strips.
If you are ever in need of a quick gift grab a charm pack (or two--we used 2 in this one) and sew them together, layer it with batting and backing and lay chenille-it strips over your seam lines. Sew in the ditch (or the center of the chenille strips) as best you can, bind, wash, dry & enjoy!
Really--it's that simple!!
so she resorted to doing some wonderful fall embroidery projects!!
This pattern above is a new one by This & That and is part of something that can be added into a quilt, found on her blog, or as we are planning to do, be simply framed.
Of course we had to do some looking for some "fun" new stuff and the UPS man earned some smiles with a couple fun deliveries this week!
