I fell in love with this quilt at Market.  Barbara Jones "Quilt Soup" designed the pattern.  The quilt is called "Social Networking" & the line of fabric is by Michelle D'Amore called "Wordplay"  It is creme, light green, black, and brown.  This is a match made in heaven, Barbara has designed the perfect pattern for this fabric line.  We have a limited supply of kits so call the shop and reserve yours!!

Pumpkin Shortage?!

Yummy pumpkin pie
Who would have thunk it??  I went to the grocery store today ( I am home sick and decided to try and run a few errands)  I thought I would pick up a couple of cans of pumpkin.  The entire shelf was empty!!  What the heck? this is "Harmons" they always keep their shelves stocked!  So, I loaded my groceries, get home and put them away and turn on the TV to catch the last of my talk show and they say "Shortage on canned pumpkin"  Oh no!! No pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!!  So, ladies if you are out and about pick up your canned pumpkin if you come across it!!  The rumor is true!
Just thought I would share that with you!

Amy Butler's new book!

I love all of the projects in this book!
I love when we get new books in at the shop.  I study every picture, and then stick post it notes on the pages of the projects I want to make.   The new book from Amy Butler "Style Stitches" arrived at the shop last week and it is Fantastic!  We love Amy's patterns and fabric at the shop!!  I have dropped a lot of hints at the shop for someone to make me something out of here, but so far no takers.   
I guess I better put this on the list of "to-do's"  Stop in the shop to get your book, you won't be sorry!
See ya!
