Sweet Ride!!!

Okay, so last year I begged my family for this bike for Mothers Day, I swore that I was going to ride it everyday to and from the shop (which I might add is about a mile or so from my house). Well.....they brought it to the shop and it sat in my classroom for about a month or so and I finally rode it home....I laughed at myself all the way home. I felt kind of silly and probably looked even sillier. So starting June 1 I have vowed to my family once again I will pedal my chubby butt to and from the shop! So, if you see me honk and wave....., I probably won't be able to wave back in case I wreck but I will ring my bell at you! (you have to admit that is one cute bike!) Notice I am giving myself a few days till I take my pedal vow serious.

Pedal faster!!!

The wait is finally over! Lori Holts new pattern "Comforts of Home" is now ready! We don't have the kits cut yet but we are working on it. This was an 18 month block of the month that Lori just finished up, (call and reserve your kit as they are limited.) She will be starting a new block of the month in June that is themed around paperdolls and is sure to be fantastic! Lori has a unique style that is sure to entice all.

Celebrity Sighting!!!

Okay, so how many of you have been in your favorite shop, eatery, or where ever......, and in walks someone famous (no, Donny Osmond did not find my shop!) but Gina Holladay from Threaded Pear, (Cranberry Quiltworks, and her newest adventure her own shop "Fresh Picked Fabrics") and yes, girls, theres more "Barbara Jones from Quilt Soup", dropped by my shop tonight! I was star struck! Of course Barbara knows I tend to chat and carry on and is sort of used to me, but, I hope I didn't scare Gina. We are great fans of both of you at the shop and want to say "thank you" for stopping by! (I would have taken a picture, but, of course I didn't have my camera, so I missed my kodak moment!)
Thanks again!
