Sneek Peeks

Warm greetings to you all on this chilly, cloudy election Tuesday. 
We have been really busy sewing up a storm of samples for our Holidazzle Gathering this coming Saturday November 10th.  We have some sneak peeks of projects below and hope to see many warm, & smiling facesthis weekend!

"Snow Happens"
by: Bird Brain Designs

There really is no man like a snowman is there?!  Something about these little guys just melts your heart.  We have been in love with this blue work snowman pattern since the day it was ordered back when it was 100 degrees outside and these little guys wouldn't have stood a chance at looking this cute outside our shop window.  Like the pattern we chose to stick to the blues and used a lovely Valdani 12-wt Pearle Cotton variegated blue thread (you'll have to check that detail out in person) and classic blues to frame them up.  This pattern also features a different way to make those square-in-a-square blocks much more fun and quick to assemble.

Double Chocolate
By: 3 Sisters of Moda fabrics

Many of you have been waiting for your double dose of chocolate and here it is!  Most of you remember the popular Chocolate line from a few years ago...well this is quite similar but revamped with some new pattern designs.  If you have been looking to create a quilt with some of those left-over scraps of Chocolate or missed the boat the first time around you may want to grab some Double Chocolate!!  We are currently working on a couple new samples out of the fabrics and have a quilt done up with the cheater, or pre-printed hexagon piece of fabric.  We currently are quite limited with the number of charms left in the shop, and still have  few pieces of the candy packages.

 Now onto a sneek peek of some of the featured
Holidazzle Gathering projects...sneek peeks because of course we want you to come in and check them out in person!!
Holiday Gift Bag from the 2012 Quilts & More magazine.
These little bags are great for using up pieces of scrap fabric and are quick to whip up to place some gift ware in!  They would also make a nice wine bag for a hostess gift.

Rail Splits
by Pieced Tree Patterns

Truly a very quick and easy table runner to whip up in a short afternoon or evening of sewing!  The fabrics featured are by Lynette Anderson from Lecien fabrics...she is one of our Ausie favorites!

Not necessarily a quick holiday gift giving item, but Lacey has a sneek peek of the hexagon table runner she has been patiently working on and that she hopes to have completed by the weekend.  It uses one of the Moda candy packages and she chose to feature "Tapestry" by Fig Tree & Co.  Hexagons are a huge crazy right now...those who like handwork may want to give this a whirl!

By: Vanilla Rosa Designs

This is a super quick and easy lap quilt that you also can easily piece in an afternoon!  It features a Little Black Dress charm pack and some coordinating yardage for the top and a fun and funky backing!! 
Just a heads up as to interest in Little Black Dress charm packs...we have had great response to the fabric collection and charms are going quite quickly.  If it is fabric you are interested in working with or a quilt top you want to work on we suggest picking your pack up soon before it's too late!

Darci has been taking a bite of a honey bun and come up with two fun holiday projects (or non-holiday depending upon fabric choice) for you to use them with!  The table runner above features a Sentiments by 3 sisters of moda fabrics with a fun pointy edge shape and poinsettia applique. 
The second project out of the same honey bun that was used in the project above is for this table topper/table cloth for the holidays. It too features fun edging!!

This is another Vanilla Rosa lap quilt pattern that is a breeze to sew up.  It uses up fat quarters and we chose to show off the bells in Sandy Gervais holiday collection Merry Medley.

Also remember, those of you who venture over to the shop on Saturday November 10 that from 5pm - 7pm we are having Candlelight hours and while supplies last you can pick up your FREE wine glass coaster.

~Quote(s) or Thought(s) for the Day~

Looking for a laugh?

You have not had enough coffee until you can thread your sewing machine while it is running!


One our more favorite ones

People are often unreasonable, irrational & self-centered
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.

Give the best you have and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.

For in the end it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.

~Mother Teresa
