Great travel projects
quilt market begins tomorrow and runs through Sunday in Salt Lake
City. Tonight is Sample Spree which is insanely crazy.....imagine
hundreds of people scurrying to grab up fabric and patterns.....all
trying to be the first to have a fabric or pattern. Maybe we're getting
old but we are content to skip that craziness for a while -- our idea
of fun is stitching.
Since many of you are looking toward summer
and traveling we thought we'd share some great travel projects. These
all include prestamped fabric, floss, and a needle -- all you need to
add is a pair of scissors for snipping threads. We'd recommend the
small travel scissors for $2.75. At that price, you can stick a pair in
each project and not have to fret if a pair drops between the car seat
into the area where it's impossible to retrieve them.....you know "that"
area (insert smile here).
We stitched "A House Unkept". The
background fabric is quilted and is the same fabric included in each kit
we'll be sharing. 8" x 10" - $14
We know many of you with pets can relate to
the next two kits. "Cat Hair" finishes 6 1/2" x 10" for $14.......
.....and "Doggie Feet" which finishes 5 1/2" x 10" and costs $14.
"Let us be Silent" finishes 8" x 10" for $16.
"Friendship" finishes 5" x 7" for $11. What a wonderful gift for a special someone!
"Christmas Tree" finishes 19" x 21". The button is included. Kit is $18
Darlene stitched and finished "Out of the
Scraps" into a very nice wall hanging or table mat. Your $29.95 kit
includes the pre-stamped background fabric, thread, needle, fabric to
make the top and binding.
Any of the stitched pieces could easily be
finished as a small quilt. We'll be happy to help you put something
Before we close we have to share a couple books available for
pre-order. Kathy Schmitz' new book "Stitches from the Garden" looks
like a winner. It's due out mid-June and we'll be happy to reserve a
copy for you. $24.99
Bonnie Sullivan's book "A Change of Seasons"
is due out mid-September. We've never been disappointed with one of
her books and expect this one will also be wonderful. $27.99
This turned out longer than we expected but
we had a lot we wanted to share. We'll be back next Thursday with a
really darling Halloween quilt. See you soon.
