finished is better than perfect!!

I finally finished a project. It has to be all the new fabrics that are out there but I'm on a roll. I am almost done with a stitchery from hugs and kisses that I am making into a wall hanging, then I finished a tabletopper of the month from Cotton Way. I truly am motivated I just need more time. But life is good and all is well. For those of you going to the Snow Goose Festival in Delta be sure and stop by and say hi! Have a great week

My first comment on my blog

I'm so excited I got my first response to my blog. So to Laurie thanks so much! We just received the Moda line Simplicity and let me tell you it is fantastic, I have to make something in this line for sure. When you visit the shop it's starting to feel like spring, and then you walk out in to the snow and start to think maybe a flannel quilt would be better. Well until next time have a great day and SMILE!!

Spring is coming!

Spring is coming, I can feel it or at least I think I do. It has snowed so much here in Utah this Winter that I have to believe with all the new fabrics that look like Spring it has to be right around the corner. We have some great lines and they arrive almost on a daily basis. It's so exciting!! We had our first Material Girls late sew on Friday night and it was fun I even started a new quilt from Bloom Creek that is going to be fantastic in the 30's. We had a good turnout but have lots of room for more so make sure and mark your calenders for the 3rd Saturday of every month and come join us. I also finished and sent it off to be quilted one of Cotton Ways new tabletopper of the month patterns I made it out of the swell line in greens its pretty cute!! plus I finished which is not often. Also we still have room in our learn to needleturn applique class with Barbara Jones from Quilt Soup, she is such a great teacher so be sure and check out that class.
I could go on and on but I'll wait until next time.
