We've also had a fun new shipment with the new spring edition of Quilts & More arrive. The magazine has some fun project ideas in it, including patterns to use up those scrappy strips we all "have" to keep in a fun basket. On a fun side note, depending upon where you live you may see a different magazine cover! Some of you will see, I believe the bag featured in the upper right hand corner of our cover as for the first time ever there was a tie for the cover shot!
We've also had a lot of fun with our Generation gals who meet the first Thursday of the month and are in the middle of their row quilt. . .
Susan brought us show and tell of a little 30s project she had been busy working on. She is currently working on her "Generations" quilt with 30s fabrics too. . .
Betty also brought along show and tell of her second completed row.
Sharon, as well as a couple other gals, have had so much fun working on making and assembling the little hexagons and came back with some fun show and tell.
We've also been busy knitting. . .
Darci finished her first (and maybe only) knitted scarf. The color and yarn she loves, the curling not so much, however once it's blocked it might be better. She has decided she gave it an honest and good effort, but crocheting is much more her style and is working on a gorgeous scarf.
Lacey finished her first scarf as well, doing all knit stitches. The scarf turned out a lot smaller than she expected and would fit a toddler or tiny teenager than it does on her coat. She found it much easier to knit with "Bling-Bling" yarn more than it was to crochet.
We've also been finishing up projects we started on a long time ago. . .
We also had so much interest in the large Ladyslipper pattern that we had done up a few years ago that Darci decided to shrink it down into a small mat form. For whatever reason, our state flower is quite popular among people and both of us gals hope someday to see one of these beauties in person!
We have also had some fun new fun wool felt colors in vibrant blues, greens, pinks (and yellows, orange & purple at home) come into the shop. If you are looking for some great bright colors for spring and summer projects these may be up your alley. And for those of you who don't have the luxury of making a quick trip into the shop is that we are currently setting up an Etsy shop to make buying something you see on here a bit easier. . .
'Tis the season before tournaments and a busy time of the year. We've had such a fantastic time watching every game the group of young men have played and have enjoyed seeing their progress as the games have gone by. This is a contributor, along with classes in the shop as to why our posts and new sample turn around rate have not been real great. That and maybe spending a little bit too much time dreaming of vacation destinations, crafting ideas, jewelry, decorating and eats on Pinterest. . .
Until next time,
~Life is like a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs and it's your choice to put your hands up, scream, and enjoy the ride.~
