Think spring

Darlene and Kay are back from a very inspiring visit to Dallas where they met lots of very nice quilters and saw amazing quilts.  Lots of new readers signed up for the weekly newsletter - welcome to you all.

This week we thought we'd get you in the mood for spring by sharing a couple of spring projects. The "Simply Flowers" pincushion would be a darling way to let a friend know you're thinking of him or her during this spring season.  It's quick to stitch and unique because it's our very own pattern.  Your $8.95 kit includes the pattern, wool for background and applique, tape measure ribbon, and buttons (colors will vary). 
"Daffodil Delight" is a perfect spring pick me up project.  We reduced the pattern by 50% (you'll need to reduce your pattern also).  Your $36.95 kit includes the pattern, background fabric, wool for the applique, and binding.  Finishes 13" x 19 1/2"
While we were in Dallas we picked up the newest Quiltmania titles.  If you pre-ordered a copy, Kay will be processing your order today.  If you didn't and would like a copy, let us know.  We picked up a few extra.

Feathering the Nest 2 by Brigitte Giblin $45.95
Treasures from the Barn by Linda Collins, $45.95
Ratsburg Road Quilts and the stories they tell by Linda Koenig $45.95
We're excited to share information about a quilt show that's just up the road in Eureka Springs, AR.  The show is sponsored by the Eureka! Quilters Guild and will be held May 6 and 7 at the Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center, Hwy 62.  Hours are 9-4 both days and admission is $5.  For more info about the guild and show you can visit their website at
If you've been keeping up with Debby's husband, Ken and his battle with cancer, read on.  If not, we will visit with you again next Thursday.

It's been a while since we gave you an update on Debby's husband. Unfortunately, the optimism expressed by his doctor in September was short lived. His cancer has returned and spread; he's currently in the hospital with acute respiratory failure. He is undergoing chemo but the outcome is very uncertain. We appreciate your keeping our family in your thoughts and prayers. We know many of you have walked this very sad path and can relate to the turmoil we are feeling.

See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
