Block of the month update
you sometimes feel as though life is moving too quickly? It seems like
we hit the "send" button on Thursday and in the blink of an eye it's
time to hit "send" again. When we were kids it seemed like forever
between holidays and now the holidays roll by much too quickly. Oh
well.....I guess the moral of the story is to enjoy every day and not
fret about tomorrow.
Fall decorating is right around the corner so we wanted to share a very
cute piece Debby recently finished. "When Witches Fly" is a Crabapple
Hill design. Meg finished hers with 9-patch units but we wanted a more
simple finish to allow the embroidery to be the star of the show. We
used Bunny Hill Designs' "Spooky Delight" line to finish ours and think
it looks great. Your $22.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the
top, and binding.
Debby also finished the winter angel. She's
the 4th in a series of seasonal angels. Your $14.95 kit includes the
pattern, background fabric, buttons, and all wool for the applique. We
also included the metallic thread for the halo since some of you
probably don't keep metallic thread on hand.
If you missed any of the other seasonal angels (or just decided you must
have them all), give us a call at 479-372-7403. Alternatively, you can
order on line by visiting our website Sew Graceful Quilting
With cooler weather on the horizon we know
many of you will enjoy staying home and stitching. A block of the month
is a great way to ensure you have a monthly stitching project.....think
of it as a gift you give yourself each month.
Several of our blocks of the month are almost closed so we wanted to
give you a quick update in case you've been undecided about whether to
join. Please note that all our blocks of the month include fabrics
and/or wool to complete the quilt top and binding. We never require you
to purchase a finishing kit. We also never require a sign up fee to
join any of our blocks of the month.
If you'd like to join any (or all) of these programs, please call
Darlene at 479-372-7403. She will need your mailing address (if you're
not local) and payment information.

One last item before we close for the week.
A sewing case designed and stitched by Kay has turned up missing. Next
time you're in the shop we'd appreciate you keeping an eye open for
it. Sometimes people pick up a sample, get distracted while oooohing
and aaaaahing, and lay the sample down in an place where it doesn't
