Stay Tuned!

Hi everyone -

Sorry for the long delay - sometimes it's hard for me to get to the computer! Still running to the hospital every day - mom is doing pretty good, she got a full hip replacement and is on her feet but there are, as usual, other complications! She now says she has a "bionic leg" as her right knee as well as her hip have now been replaced.

Exciting stuff going on in the store (actually at the back of the store!). New fabrics are in and some great new notions as well as some new patterns which we are going to kit up.

Barb is taking the day off tomorrow and even though I will be in the store I'm not sure I'm allowed to touch the new stuff! So check back Wednesday because you may get to see some pics of the new's that time of year and all the stuff I ordered in the Spring is now beginning to arrive. I'm so excited because it's ALL gorgeous!

Hope to see you on the store soon!

Happy Quilting!

Jo-Ann, Barb and the Chicks!

Doing well!

This is on a personal note. For those customers who were in the store last night when I got the call that my mom fell and was being taken to the hospital. She is doing fine. She fell and broke her hip and was operated on this afternoon. She is resting comfortably and asking for food! It's a family thing - ha, ha!

Thank you for all your prayers, concern and best wishes!

Happy Quilting!

We've been busy!

Hi everyone!

It's Friday August 15th and we are at the store this evening for our monthly Sit and Sew Friday nite. We just finished a lovely dinner, Chicken Ceasar with Garlic Bread and Chocolate Mousse Cake (I couldn't resist it when I saw it at Sobeye's today) and Lynn brought in fresh chocolate brownies right out of the oven........

Karen complained that nothing new is happening on the blog.....good to know someone's checking up on us so I decided to sit down and do it now! Barb and I are always saying we should blog more often but honestly we have been so busy working on the newsletter and getting organized for all the new stuff coming in that we have just forgotten. So the real news is the Fall newsletter is on the website and will be in the mail Monday or Tuesday of next week for those who prefer the "snail mail" delivery.

I'm busy putting beads on my Garden Friends Quilt which I hope to have finished soon and up on display at the store, Barb is busy on a hand pieced block for her class.

We'd like to share an absolutely gorgeous quilt that one of our customers completed after taking the Rain Drops Class with Laurissa. Katrina used a black and white background with bright fabrics to really make it pop!

We'll try to be more consistent with our blogging but just know that if you don't hear anything from us it's usually because there's so much going on in the store.......

Happy Quilting!

Jo-Ann, Barb and the Chicks!!!
