Upcoming shows and a little cuteness!

We are going to have a very busy September!  I really hope that some of you can come to see us at a show - it's always really fun to meet people in person that we've gotten to know online!

We will be in Springfield, MO on September 8-10th - here are the details...

The Ozark Piecemakers Quilt Guild
Ozark Empire Fairgrounds
3001 North Grant
Springfield, MO

Thursday & Friday - hours are 9:00 to 5:00
Saturday - 9:00 to 4:00

This is the first time for us to vend here, and it's my understanding that this is a new location for the show - so if you live in the area, make sure you go to the Fairgrounds!

Next up is a show in Walker, MN on September 22nd and 23rd.  This show is put on my 2 guilds - the Northwoods Quilters and the Heartland Quilters.

Northern Lights Casino Hotel & Event Center
6800 Y Frontage Road NW
Walker, MN

Thursday - hours 9:00 to 6:00
Friday - 9:00 to 4:00

Hope you can come to one of them!!  We will also be in Ft. Dodge, IA in October - but I will post the details on that when it gets closer.

I have a week in between shows, and that is when the second "Surprise" box will be going out.  I've got those almost ready to go.  Then the charms will be mailed the last week of the month.  Speaking of charms...have you signed up?  The picture at the top of the blog is a sample of the charms and the details are on my website.  It's always lots of fun, and don't forget that you get free stuff!

My cute little niece started COLLEGE last week.  I just can't believe she is 18 already.  She is going to her local community college, which I'm happy about, I don't want her to move away!  Here she is on her first day of college - telling her kitties goodbye - lol!

And it's not the first day of school without Grandpa (my dad) seeing her off. My sister in law has taken a picture of them each year and they are sooooo cute.  Many are the 2 of them from the back, walking down the driveway to meet the school bus, holding hands.  Adorable!  Look at my dad - can you tell he's a farmer?!  He's quite the fashion statement with bibs and boots!
I talked to her after her first day and it all went well.  She also started a new job that day - so after a summer of leisure, she is a busy girl!

Hope you have a leisurely Sunday!


  1. Can't you do a show in UT? : )
    Is your niece in shock--a new job and college at the same time can be quite a life change!
    Oh, your Dad reminds me of how my FIL used to look as he trudged around his farm irrigating, feeding animals, and working the fields.

  2. Hi, I saw your blog listed on Sew N Wild Oaks blog and open your page and see you are in Lockridge , Iowa. I am in Richland, Iowa, The Red Hen Shop, quilt fabric shop north of Richland a couple of miles. Love your work, just beautiful. My husband grew up in Salina, Iowa and went to grade school in Lockridge. Small world.

    1. Hi Melody - it is a small world! You are a no-reply blogger, so I can't email you directly - hope you see this! I love The Red Hen and want to get up there again one of these days.
