I Just Love These!

Look what our UPS man delivered today.....

They are so funny, so vintage, so FABULOUS!
The other side of the lunch box says "Eat. Sleep. Sew." and has a vintage picture of a little girl drinking milk.  Love 'em!

Oh, and look what else...a new design from Curby's Closet!  The new quilted T-strap baby shoe, DARLING!

We love our UPS man!

If you missed the party.....

Here it is.  This is the quilt, a little bit of BOO,  I designed for the Fall 2010 Quilt Sampler Magazine.

I love the location they chose for the photography.

And I love our customers!  There were so many of you and I was working like silly at the cutting table so I know I didn't get to thank you all for coming.  So if I didn't get to talk to you tonight,  THANK YOU!  It was crazy, but such a fun crazy. One fun thing was finally being able to display a quilt that I had finished in the spring (when Halloween was soooooo far away) but had to keep to myself. I like to show and tell so that was kind of hard.

A Perfect Solution PLUS I'm giving it away!

OK ladies, I have seen you. You know who you are, with your purses full of loyalty cards from every restaurant, bagel stop and quilt store from Brigham City to St. George.  Well, guess what? You are my kind of people, because I have them poking out from every pocket in my pruse. I was so excited when we came across this item. It is perfection! As stinkin' cute as it is functional!
I kept bugging Holly to see if they had come in yet and FINALLY today they arrived!  Yes, just in time for tomorrow night's party when you get everything for 10% off.  But want a better deal than that?  How about FREE.  Post a comment telling me how many loyalty cards you have in your wallet or purse and how this will surely change your life, and then  I will select one random winner tomorrow (Friday) night to receive a FREE card case!

We are keeping our UPS guy running!

The girls have been opening boxes non stop it seems.  There is new fabric coming in every day.  I thought I would show you a little tast of what we have been ooohing and aaaahing over lately!

I love minkee, and who doesn't.  I love to pet the fabric and wish I could just roll myself up in it. Shannon Fabrics for Robert Kaufman has released such a great line of seasonal cuddle prints!  They are bright and beautiful and as always SOOOOO SOFT!
Riley Blake is one of the hottest things going in fabric and you can see why.  They have the best designers.  Hooty Hoot and Domestic Diva are their two newest releases and they are FAB!
American Jane fans are going to LOVE Punctuation.  So fun!
Keiki follows up her prior great lines with Wee Woodland.  Deep tones, great motifs, and of course fabulous polka dots and flowers!

Have you all been just counting down the days until you can get your hands on some of the Bliss fabric line designed by Camille & Bonnie for Moda, or is it just me? :) I L-O-V-E, love everything made from this line. I want to redo my whole house in this fabric, or at least my kitchen and sewing 'studio'! Well, while we await the arrival of the yardage, come in and see the FABULOUS trunk show from Thimble Blossoms! Each of her newest quilt patterns are made using Bliss, and most of them are made using a Bliss PRECUT (which ARE IN THE STORE NOW). It is total EYE CANDY!!!!! The trunk show won't be here for long, so come in soon!

Zippity Do Dah!!!!

Isn't it so fun when someone comes up with a great new use for an ordinary notion?!? I have been on the lookout for what people are creating using an ordinary zipper. And when Riley Blake Designs showed their new line of 'zippers by the yard' at Quilt Market, I was thrilled! Now I could finally make all the fun things I have seen all over the blogging world! Just take a look...there is a pair of shoes with ruffles made from zippers, a headband, a necklace, a lapel pin, a ring and a barrette! Yes, that's right...ZIPPITY DO DAH!!!! For now there are four colors to choose from; cotton candy, black, chartreuse and turquoise. So come in and get inspired to create your own new wardrobe accessory!
