Ugh!! Hacker get a job!

Okay, over the weekend it was brought to my attention that one of my e-mail accounts (my personal one) had been hacked into. GREAT!! So, said "bad person" sent and e-mail out to my friends on that list and told them I was stranded in London, and to please send money!! Well, if you haven't already guessed I am not in London, so there is no need to send money!! But said bad man, I must tell you, you have been a real pain in the butt!! If you would use that time & energy and get a real honest to goodness job, instead of preying on poor innocent people you might feel better about your low life self!! So, tonight sleep well my friend! cause I have been sending some bad Karma right back at ya!!! Your a creep!

A celebrity stops by our shop!!

We had a "quilting/ pattern & fabric designer celebrity" visit the shop on Saturday, (dang! I missed it! I took Saturday off, to sew!) Bonnie from Cotton Way stopped in to Material Girls to do a little shopping, I happened to call the shop and Shelby my daughter says "Mom, I think the Cotton Way lady is in here" to which I replied "go ask her and see if it is" "Awkward Mom, no! how embarassing" Anyway to make a long story short it was her and I asked if a picture be taken of her so, here is Shelby and Bonnie. (Shelby asked me not to post this, she hated the picture of her. She never reads my blog so she will never know!) thanks for stopping by Bonnie~ Material Girls loves you!!
