Winding Down

 The booths are coming down and everyone has been packing up their samples and displays.  As for the BP gals, we are staying over one more night and making the drive home tomorrow.  Then it will be the big unloading and logging in all the goodies that we are bringing to the store!  It takes a few days to get it all sorted out, but do plan to stop in the store in the near future to look at the new things.  Here's a few more ideas to entice you--

Bareroots has little owls and sewing notions on candlemats, and I love the embroidered quilt blocks.  It was so nice to have a chance to chat with Barri because she lives near my son out in CA, so getting a hug from her is the next best thing to a hug from Dan!

You would not believe this fabulous new iron and ironing board from Laurastar!  This might be the answer to all of my pressing needs.  We plan to have one in the shop soon.  It's made in Switzerland, so should get along just fine with the Berninas!

This fabric is called Washi and we ordered it from Timeless Treasures.  

This is Anne from Olive Ann patterns.  We loved her patterns for little girl and doll dresses.  Sorry, Ian, she doesn't have any grandsons yet so no new outfits for you! :(

Yes!  We ordered wool felt!  Some bolts and some pieces, numerous colors, perfect for your applique.

We met Birgitte and her husband when we went to order fabric from Moda.  She is a new designer from Germany, her company name is Zen Chic and her line called Juggling Summer was our favorite.  She told us that she is relatively new to fabric design, after spending years working as an accountant.  

This is Morton from Stof Fabrics, a German company.  The sample quilt in the background lured us in and Morton forced us to order the fabric!

So now we are going to unwind, find a good dinner and toast our successful trip!  We are also toasting the 15th anniversary of Bear Patch plus Patti's birthday!
