The Fall Guy
we write this, the north wind is blowing, skies are cloudy and rain is
falling......where did those beautiful spring days go? Last week we
mentioned our get away to Kansas City. One of our favorite activities
was visiting the zoo (we arrived as the gates opened and stayed until
they closed). The grandkids are learning about where wool comes from --
it's so much fun to see the wonder in their eyes as they imagine sheep
with no hair.
Kits for "The Fall Guy" are ready. Your
$36.95 kit includes the pattern, background fabric, wool for applique,
rick rack and backing fabric. If you'd prefer to use your own
materials, the pattern is available for $10.
We're very excited to learn Jo Morton has
another new book coming mid-May. "Jo's Little Favorites II" contains
instructions to make 15 small quilts. It also includes Jo's tips for
precise patchwork sewing. Jo has also included helpful hints including
instructions on how to quilt each project. 80 pages $24.99
Let us know if we can reserve a copy for you.
As we were spring cleaning and organizing
recently, we couldn't help but remember the words stitched on this cute
little wall hanging: "A house unkept cannot be so distressing as a life
unlived". Rather than spend all our time dusting, cleaning, and
organizing, we plan to heed these words and make time each day for the
things we truly enjoy.
If you'd like to stitch your own reminder (or a reminder for a friend or
two), let us know. We have kits which include the pre-stamped
sandcastle fabric, threads, needle, borders, and binding for $19.95. If
you'd prefer to use your own border fabrics, we have partial kits which
include the pre-stamped sandcastle fabric, threads, and needle for $14.
As you're making spring travel plans, be sure to pencil in a trip to

Colors of Stockton Quilt Show 2017.......and just so you don't have to
compute distances......Stockton is only 112 miles from Rogers.....see
you at the show!
