From My Heart Friday- Sewing Quilts for Charities

We had a great time sewing quilts for donation today. Look what we accomplished. We would love to have you join us next time we get together to sew! Call the store for time and dates.

we've been busy!

Debbie and I had the opportunity to get away and get several things pieced together that will be showing up at the store sometime soon.  We had some good quality time with our machines and time to mull over new ideas and projects.  I worked on 3 "bonus projects" that will be included in our new BOM Back Home Again starting soon.  One of them is this little quilt of scrappy squares of the fabrics leftover after piecing the quilt top.  There is still time to sign up!  Debbie completed the next tablerunner-of-the-month, celebrating St. Patrick's Day.  She works hard to find something new and interesting every month, you can find them rotating through a display above the cash register, and purchase/order one or all!  Debbie also stitched together this cute apron, currently on display in our front window featuring all sorts of great apron samples.   At this time of year many of us really need a recharge on our personal battery, and setting aside some time for our sewing helps a lot.  The pleasure of working with needle and thread on beautiful fabric is therapy!
