Special gifts for special people

What a rainy time of year.  If the forecast of 5" of rain this weekend holds true, we may go into the boat building business.  April showers most certainly will bring those beautiful May flowers and hopefully lots of yummy fruits and veggies.
A quick check of the calendar reveals the end of school is right around the corner.  Darlene recently finished a quick to stitch piece that would be perfect for that special teacher who has guided your child or grandchild this year.  Your $12.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric, wool for applique, binding and backing fabric.

We're sure many of you can relate to the sentiment stitched on the piece "Teachers live forever in the hearts they touch" many of us remember special teachers.
Darlene also recently finished a really darling piece for a baby, "Heaven Above".  Your $12.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric and wool for applique.  We framed ours in an 8" x 10" frame.  When you order, specify whether you want a boy or girl kit (boy kits are blue and girl kits are pink). 
When we hear of quilt shows and quilting events, we like to share them with you.  We love to be inspired and visiting a show or quilt event is a great way to get an inspirational boost.  The Alpha Delta Chapter is hosting the 8th annual Airing of the Quilts May 5-6 (9:00-5:00).  Proceeds benefit the South Sebastian County Historical Society.

The event takes place at Bell Park, 1050 Bell Park Road, Greenwood AR.  It will include vendors, a silent auction, special exhibits, and a raffle quilt.  Vintage quilts will be displayed at the Old Jail Museum properties.  For more info, you can visit the Greenwood Museum
If you bought a Scraps of my Life pattern, please send us your e-mail so we can send an important part of the pattern we accidentally failed to include.  Kay is almost finished with our sample and we can't wait to get it hung.
By the time you read this, Kay will be on her way to Stockton MO for the Colors of Stockton MO quilt show April 28 (10:00-6:00) and 29 (9:00-3:00).  The show will be held at the Zumwalt Expo Center, RB Road, Stockton MO.  Hope you'll make plans to visit the show. 

The shop will be open regular hours Thurs and Sat (9:00-3:00).  See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
