Meet Sassypants!!

In 2008 I hired this cute, quiet, shy, darling of a girl in her Senior year of Highschool (Jaymie Soderman)  She was going off to college in the Fall and blazing her own trail in life.  We all wished her well and told her the Material Girls Rules: 
*Curfew by 10:00pm
*No marriage proposals!  (we wanted her to live it up a little!)
*She had to come back to work for us on breaks!
Jaymie and her cute mom Corie!
So, every year true to her word she came back and helped us at the shop!!  We love her!  (I am sure she thought we were a bunch of crazy ladies that needed to get out more!)  Well, flash forward to 2010 and she has her own pattern company called "Sassypants Patterns"   Be sure and check out her blog to see more of her designs  (tell her Material Girls sent you.)  She has designed some of our most popular patterns in the shop!!  Her mom Corie is the cutest thing ever and pattern tester extraordinaire!  Here are a few of her designs!!  If you would like to order her patterns give us a call at the shop!!  She will be heading back to school soon and we are going to miss her!  We want to let her know we love her and can't wait to see what new designs she comes up with!
Nadine and the girls:)

A lot to say.....,

Haunted Mansion
Awesome by Sandy Gervais

Shelby and Lacey!

I am not sure if the days are getting shorter, my list is getting longer, or I am just moving at a really slow pace! I can't seem to keep up on my posting. I have lots to tell you and just have had a hard time fitting everything in to the day!! I think this might go back to my Franklin Day Planner challengedness (my own word, pretty creative huh?)
We are getting lots of new "Fall" lines and patterns in at the shop...., Awesome by Sandy Gervais, Haunted Mansion by Sanae, and a few other really cute lines, Soliel by Annette Tatum, Luna II by Maywood, oh and the list goes on with just as many new patterns!!
To top off all of that, my cute Shelby has decided to really grow up and take another vacation without me....! She is headed off to St Thomas (Virgin Islands) and I am really having a hard time, (she has threatened to bop me if I cry!!) I think she is sick of me telling her about stranger danger and to be careful and yada yada!! I almost made her watch the "Barney" video to get my point across!
Anyhoo, lots going on! oh! and be sure and stayed tuned we have some great things to coming up and to announce!
See ya later!

Sisters, Oregon! A quilt show!

This is a quilt made with all the shirts from past shows.

A quilted car cover, yes someone went to a lot of work!! I had to promise Tom I would never take my hobby this far.

another shot! Hmmm, could I finish this? my car is kind of big...., (just kidding honey!)

A wall of amazing quilts!

this is a shot of the line of cars behind us! (taken from my sunroof) I am sure the lady in the car behind us thought I was nuts!

This is the line in front of us and it was only 8 am.

Tom and I got a wild hair this week and decided to head off to Sisters, Oregon!! This is the 35th year of their annual outdoor quilt show. It was amazing!! I think Tom and I stopped at every antique store, and quilt shop along the way!! It was so much fun, we ate lots, saw 2 movies, shopped and spent some much needed alone time! Thanks Honey!! (He even put up with my backseat driving) Overall, it was a fantastic weekend. If you ever get the chance to go it is well worth the trip! I plan on going next year, who's in? Do I smell a retreat?
See ya!

Keepin It Fresh 6-28 thru 7-2, 2010

This is a video clip of some of the highlights from Channel 2. This is Jamie having a dance off with Debbie Worthen from channel 2. It was so much fun!!


This quilt is going up for auction!!

I wanted to share pictures of the quilt I am donating to "Live, Laugh, Breathe." It is to help raise money for the "Gwendelyn Strong Foundation". I met this amazing young mom on her blog who lost her beautiful baby girl to a disease called SMARDS. I have never met Kendra (mom) but felt an instant liking for her and her story so touched my heart. You can read more about it on her blog. Her event is July 17 If any of you have donations or would like to help I am sure she would love it! Kendra is picking the quilt up this week and I am so excited to meet her. So, mark your calenders and stop by this awesome event!
