We are really looking forward to this - sure hope to see lots of you there. Please come and say hi! We are in the quilt display area (so we have extra eye candy to look at all day!!). We are trying a few new things this fall. First off are these awesome SOCKS!!
Something else new for the shows this fall are stained glass windows in quilt block designs! My mom has made up a bunch of little windows - I think they are all around 8" that are the same designs that I use for my jewelry. I haven't seen them yet - she is bringing them over today. Can't wait to see what all she has come up with!
More items that we will bring along - we were about sold out of pins, so we finished a nice batch of them...
And a few pendants with some added bling...
And the fun mail days are not over yet - look what Lisa from Primitive Gatherings shared with me...
A layer cake of her newest fabric line with Moda that will be in shops soon (I think!). I whipped up a bunch of jewelry with it - will show you that at a later date! Love the anchors. I think these fabrics would make great baby quilts - the yellow is a nice, soft yellow and there are a couple shades of gray (not 50...lol). Really pretty!
And I did finish up my second "Gathering Scraps" sample. If you remember - I sent the first one to Primitive Gatherings for use in their booth this fall. It should be in the booth in Des Moines - so if you go to that show, be sure to go see it! My original plan was to make a smaller version and just not have it quilted yet (no time). Well, I did make it a little smaller - the original is 65" x 75" and the 2nd one is 35" x 45". Well, I decided that it would look bad to have a quilt hanging that was not quilted - so I made a call to my quilter, Kym Ward and she was able to do it for me!! I was so excited and happy that she was able to sneak it in. Good thing I made it smaller - she may not have had the time for a big one. She does such a great job and really does take good care of me. And...DARNIT!!! I just realized that I forgot to sew a label in when I attached the binding. GRRR!!!! Why do I always forget to do that? It is so easy to just add a triangle to the corner when you sew on that binding. Ok...add that to the to-do list for today! If you didn't see Gathering Scraps...here it is...
Now I have to go get busy! I will leave you with a picture of Ozzie - he is modeling some of the pumpkin pins!
Hope to see you at the show!!
