| Welcome to November, where did October go? |
We are having a sale Monday-Saturday (Nov. 5-10) celebrating Carolyn's 50th birthday. The problem is she is going to be gone for her big day Nov. 9. So we will celebrate from Monday through Saturday with or without her. She also is a poll worker so will be gone on the 6th. But the rest of us can celebrate with cookies and coffee, I won't let her take them with her to Clear Lake Thursday afternoon-Saturday. It's a shopping spree weekend in a hotel there, a big shop hop under one roof. Go visit her there!
This has been a very busy two weeks for fabric. The complete line of Old Glory Gatherings is here. It is neater in real life than on paper. We had a sneak preview of the next winter collection coming next year and is it ever cute. A line called Big Red from Quilting Treasures has a neat quick pattern showcasing IH tractors. Of course there is a kit for that.
We got out of our box and ordered a line called Extraordinary Colors from In The Beginnings. It has a story book about different colors with the quilt pattern in it. Cute and good size, 54 x 72.
The bolts of Double Chocolate are here from Moda and Metropolitian Fair is coming next week from Moda too. We have renewed our stash of creams and whites with 15 new ones.
Soon we will have the "man" quilt, Vintage Tin from CrabApple Hill done. It highlights gas stations, oil cans and license plates.
New kits are three versions of quilts done with the new black and gold line from Timeless Treasures. It has a leaf pattern thet is neat. We did Divided By Three with it. We also have new Pieced Tree runner kits done, Scrappy Do in Kansas Troubles, Mad About Plaid in Primititive Gathering Christmas colors, and Square Times in red, white and blue.
Our new favorite pattern Bricks is kitted up in Dr. Suess, Star Wars, race cars, Red Rooster's Weeds and Tweeds, construction and Christmas. It is a fun pattern to showcase a panel or focus fabric and its coordinates.
Hope to see you somewhere between the 5th and the 10th.
