If you love the primitive look, this is the place for you. We also are longarm quilters and would love to quilt your creation.

though the calendar says it's still winter, Mother Nature has other
ideas. We have already spotted these beautiful spring flowers on the
drive out to the shop. Since spring seems to be arriving early, we
thought we'd share a couple of spring projects with you this week.
Who can't help but smile when they see
Spring Fling? We finished ours to fit the new distressed metal tray we
recently received. Your $36.95 kit includes the pattern, sandcastle
background fabric, wool for applique, rick rack, and backing fabric.
The 18" x 28" tray is sold separately for $48. It is a nice heavy
distressed metal tray with handles on each end which make it perfect for
use as a serving tray when it's not holding your cute bunny mat. It
also doubles as a tray to hold sewing supplies or lovely spring flowers
or potted herbs or.....you get the idea.....it's a versatile tray. It
is quite heavy so we recommend you either stop by the shop to pick up
your tray or visit our booth at one of our vending events.
Watch future newsletters for more cute mats to fit in the tray.
"Forest Friends" by Lynette Anderson is
another very cute spring piece. It was supposed to be finished as a
pillow but as many of you know we often change patterns. We chose to
finish ours as a long wall hanging which measures 8 1/2" x 25". Your
$26.95 kit includes the pattern with our changes, fabrics for the top,
rick rack, stitchery stabilizer, binding, and backing fabric.
If you're intimidated by the applique, perhaps you'd prefer the darling
hand painted buttons. The buttons are hand painted in Australia by a
real person using real paint brushes and a very steady hand. Mr Owl
(YB369) is $9.80, Crescent Moon (YB370) is $4.50, and Toadstool (YB371)
Let us know if we can reserve a kit and/or buttons by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you bought the All Those Simple Things
pattern, please check it. More than likely you received two of one
block and none of another block. We have the replacement page and will
mail it to you immediately. On a very happy note, our sample is quilted
and bound and is so pretty.....and perfect for the spring. We'll share
it at Dallas and bring it home for all who live in the area to ooooh
and aaaaah over. Here's another pre-quilting photo.
By the time you reach the bottom of this
newsletter, Kay and Darlene will probably be headed south for the Dallas
show. Check out http://quiltersguildofdallas.org/ for info about the show.
Debby and Erin will have the shop open regular hours Thurs and Sat
(9-3). After we return from Dallas we hope to get all our samples back
on the walls (we just don't like all these bare walls!) and to rework
some areas. See you soon.
