Christmas is Coming!

Yikes! Christmas fabric has arrived at the shop. What was I thinking when I said it could be delivered the end of March???? It sounded ok in October but I'm just not ready to deal with Christmas, I just got the last of this past Christmas's stuff back up in the attic!

It's Nancy Halvorsen's line from Benartex and as usual, it's pretty. Nice panel, and nice coordinates to go with it. I forced myself to put the panel up on the website but have been dragging my feet with the rest. It's in the shop and for those of you too far away, I will need to be goaded into the Christmas spirit to get it done!

Sigh - it's another panel. I like it, it will be cute when somethings done with it - I just have to sneakily talk someone else on the staff to taking it home and doing something with it!

We vended at the BeachPlum Quilters show last weekend. We were next to Julie from Julie's Sewing basket - who has great embroidery stuff! We set up our booths so we could sit, stitch and gossip. It was a nice way to spend the day, chatting with Julie and all the customers at the show. I finally got the pillow top stitched I've been working on since February. Ok, not every day, not even once a week . . . but I did get the last few flowers stitched and this week am actually sewing the nine patches for the border.

I even took the first couple of stitches in my next redwork project! I'm making this as a wall hanging in my guest room.

My panel mission continues - I found three bolts of a Beatrix Rabbit book in the backroom so I took one home last week and came up with this. I love Beatrix Potter!

Till next time.
