We've come a long way
is falling as we write this newsletter. We're trying to be optimistic
and remind ourselves at least it's not falling ice. Don't get us wrong
-- we love having four seasons but as we age seem to enjoy the brutal
cold less and less. We're sure many of you can relate.
We can't believe it but we are turning 5 years old! It seems like just a
few short months have passed since we opened our doors and hoped
someone would stop by. The photo on the left is the display right
inside our door shortly after we opened; the center photo is a recent
display. I'd say we've expanded just a little bit! The photo on the
right is one of our 3 fabric shelves shortly after opening. The quilt
hanging on the wall was our first block of the month.....we wondered if
there was any way we'd sell all we made. It's really fun to look back
and see our growth.
A birthday means a party and we've decided to have a birthday party next
Saturday, Jan 30. Hope you will mark your calendar and plan to join
Although we don't necessarily enjoy the
coldness, slipperiness, and ick that comes with snow, we do love
snowmen......we also love taking a good pattern and making it great. We
used "These Three Throws" pattern......
......to make this cutie. The top photo
shows the entire quilt and the bottom photo shows closeups of the
embroidered blocks. We used Primitive Gathering's Primitive Snowman
line. Our quilt finishes 46" x 55". Kits are $42.95 and include the
pattern with our changes, precut 5" squares, borders, and binding.
We'll be happy to help you choose a backing fabric if you'd like.
The spring issue of Primitive Quilts and
projects arrived Monday. Although we don't have a project in this
issue, it's still a great issue. If you're on automatic to receive the
magazine, Debby will get your order processed. If you're not on
automatic but would like us to reserve a copy, let us know via e-mail or
Our favorite man in brown also delivered
Quiltmania #111. We were excited to see it features photos of some of
the quilts hanging in the Primitive Quilts and Projects display at
Houston. If you're on automatic for this magazine, Debby will get your
order processed. If not and you'd like to reserve a copy, just let us
Isn't that cover quit stunning?
When we saw Bonnie Sullivan's "Pumpkin
Party" fabric we just couldn't say no to it. As many of you know we
aren't big Halloween fans but we are trying to break out of our little
box and embrace the holiday. We'll never like the creepy scary ghoulish
side of Halloween but loved this whimsical look. We ordered the panel
and several coordinates for borders and binding.
The fabric is a nice heavy Maywood flannel and is super soft. The
images are very high quality. Once it's quilted, it'll be hard to tell
that the images are stamped rather than stitched.
We expect delivery in April but are taking preorders now. Let us know how many panels you'd like to reserve.
One other note before we close. Since we
are moving into the time of year when we may receive inclement
weather.....if Rogers public schools are closed, we are closed. If you
have any doubt about whether we're open, please give a quick call.
