Is that Camille from Thimble Blossoms?

We just had our Fall Open House at the shop and we are having a trunk show of "Thimble Blossoms" I was talking to Camille and told her we wished she could be here, (but the girl is busy) so we decided to improvise and make our own Camille. (I really think after she heard how weird my family is I scared her) I wished I could label the pictures but my computer skills won't let me. (Camille, I hope you are okay with our model)
So the pictures are as follows:
1. Our version of Camille ( we were going to draw her but I can't draw)
2. Camille at the register
3. Camille going to Cafe Rio with Jamie (a really good place to eat)
4. Camille loves rick rack!
5. Camille drinking her Dr. Pepper from Sonic (this is hard work I heard her say)
6.Camille checking out the Farmers Market.
7. Camille with one of her quilts Double Dip
8. Camille with her pre-cuts of Simple Abundance Which we got the yardage to today!!!
We loved having Camille at the shop, tee hee! but we would really love her in person! Her and her mom's (Cotton Way) line Simple Abundance arrived TODAY Yahoo!

So, I will post more pic's of the entire trunk show tomorrow!
PS. Camille we love you!

Puppy Love!

Okay, I admit it I still have that secret crush on my favorite Osmond "Donny" I literally drove my 2 sisters nuts growing up! My little sister would go on a rampage ( I think she had temper issues) and rip all my Donny stuff shreds! And, both of my kids know all the words to "Puppy Love" and my poor hubby has had to live with this! I have drug him to Donny concerts forever, and have yelled and screamed while he stood patiently by! I try and sneek his CD's in to the player at the shop but my girls have threatened me! So my point is my friends is he is on Dancing with the Stars! I am so excited!!! You can vote for him at 1-800-868-3405!!

Go Donny!!


PS. Stay tuned for my post on Thimble Blossoms! (told ya it was coming Camille)
PSS, I couldn't get my Donny pic's to post
