More, more, more!

The "Smushies" have arrived!  What is a "smushie", usually it is a tone on tone, a background, a zinger for all your fabulous prints....that's a "smushie"!!!  These fabulous fabrics are Michael Miller Krystal and hard to resist at 30% off!!!!  That red and orange are to die for!
As you all know, I love it when my customers come in and share their fabulous creations.  Marlane brought her "Cabin In The Woods" quilt in today and found the perfect backing (at 30% off) but also allowed me to take a picture of her and friend Pat holding it up.
"Cabin In The Woods"
From the book - Welcome to My Cabin
by Nancy Smith and Lynda Milligan

I also love September!  It's the time of year when quilters come back to the store for our evening Sit & Sew's.  Tonight was no exception.  There were eight of us spread out along the tables and everyone worked diligently on their various projects.  Dinner was Beef Stew with Crusty Bread and a mixed Salad, dessert was Caramel Apple Cheescake and Caramel Chocolate Pecan cheesecake.  I'm exhausted but it's that "good" exhaustion you feel after a day well spent.  I was right this morning when I posted on facebook - It's a beautiful day!  It truly was!

The dishes are in the dishwasher and the kitchen has been tidied.  Just waiting for the day to be over and Liz to drop me off at home where I can unwind a bit before bed! 

Happy Quilting!

Yes! I know!

I have definitely been off the grid for quite awhile.  It's been a very busy and eventful Summer and I am now looking forward to the store move (more to come as plans progress)!  On that note I received a few fabulous bolts of fabric on Monday which are now priced and on the floor waiting for you to come and fondle - at 30% off - how can you resist!

From white all the way to black and I just received another box this morning with a bunch of "smushies"!!!!  What are "smushies", they are those gorgeous tone on tones you always seem to need to complete your stash.  These are colours that I myself am tempted to grab metres and metres of because I know they'll get used.....I will post a pic as soon as I have them marked and ready for you - again at 30% off, how can you resist....
If you've been keeping up with the e-mails, you know we will soon be on the move and there will be loads of new and exciting things happening at the "Doodle".  Right now I really have to concentrate on our Newsletter so I promise to post again soon but in the meantime I will mention that coming up are the following events......
