Time flies!

I just don't know where the time goes - every day seems to just fly by and then all of a sudden the entire week is gone.  And April????  Where the heck did it go?  It's almost gone too.  Since time has flown by so quickly since I last posted, I have some catching up to do.

Here are the charms from month four from our Charming 2 program.  It won't be long and it will be time to send out the next one!  If you are interested in signing up for Charming 3, send me your e-mail address and I will add you to my contact list.  Information on the program will go out in July, which is when you can sign up.

One of my Aussie customers, Teresa C always makes her 6" pattern to match her charm and sends me pictures - doesn't she do a great job?  

And to the rest of my Charming 2 customers...are you making your blocks?  Let's see them!

Teresa also bought the "extra" charm - the pineapple and made the matching block for it as well.  For those of you who ordered the pineapple, if you did not receive it with your last charm, you will get it with the next one!

 I made lots of pin cushions to take to the show we did in Stover, MO.

And a few more...I sell the pattern for the pumpkin (Poor Lil Punky) and it seems that people always want to buy my sample at shows, so I made up a few of those.  Same goes for the pineapple and the flag - the patterns are for sale but not the samples - so I made one of each of those.

A few pictures from the show.  The two ladies that I was chatting with are from Arkansas and each of them had a booth across from me and they are both customers. It was great to finally meet them in person. Rene from Ritsy Rags is on the right and Jennifer from Just Jennifer is on the left. They bought up all of my earrings after the show, so that is one of many things on my to-do list!

I recently received an e-mail from Sally, who purchased my Baskets in the Cabin pattern at a show last fall.  This is her interpretation of it (you can see part of my sample in the picture above - the red/black/tan quilt)
I think it looks really great - much different than my dark colors, that is for sure.  She also changed the border and used half-square triangles, instead of squares.  Love it!

I started a new quilt the other day. I even put a brand new blade in my rotary cutter! That's a miracle - because I never change my blades!  Well, Ozzie could have lost a tail to that new blade, because he felt the need to park his butt right where I was trying to cut!

And if that wasn't bad enough - his next move was this...right smack dab on top of what I was doing! you think he wanted a little attention?!

And now, I have to go get busy because I have a visitor coming today...
Isn't she cute???  It's Aunt Nancy!  

Have a great weekend!
