it's closing time

I have had my shop open for almost 4years.  It has been a wonderful time of teaching, learning, and making new friends!  I have loved getting to know so many of you.

My husband has been doing a lot of taking care of our house and family. He never tells me no and has been so supportive of me and my dreams.  With both of us working more than full time, something has to give. I have decided that now is the time for me to close my shop.

You have taught me so much in your generosity and support of my little quilt shop in Lincoln.  I will continue to quilt and sew.  I am also looking forward to cooking dinner every night, going to weekly baseball games, and taking the dog for a walk!

My last day open will be Saturday, May 2.  I will be having a huge sale - everything must go!  It is the perfect time for you to come in give me a hug, wish me the best, and buy fabric!

Thank you for all of your love and support.

Our Quilty Fun, BOM 2015 is going strong!

So much cutting and kitting to do! And a fun technique to learn for this Flying Geese block from Lori Holt (block for March).


Here is a fun video of our sewing ladies!  I love hearing all of the talking and laughing going on during class time.  It's a really short video, but they are such a great group!

And here are two of my completed blocks, Apples and Twinkle Stars.  I finished my Court House Steps block, which I loved making.  Up next are the Baskets.  Just three of those to make.

If you would like to join in, there is room still available in the Thursday class.  It meets the 4th Thursday of every month at 10:00 - 12:00 pm.  Call the shop (916) 209-3930 to save your seat and a kit!

I hung up some sweet Valentine quilts in the shop today.  The pink/grey quilt is made with a charm pack.  The lots of hearts quilt is made using the Go Baby, and the red heart on the right was made as a gift from and Insta Gram mini quilt swap.

The Lincoln News Messenger came by and took some pictures too! I hope they end up in tomorrow's paper....  That would be neat!

And I played Dress-Up with my mannequin.  Isn't she the cutest! I used some vintage clothing patterns, that I have a ton of.  And a heart banner that my mom made last year.  If you see Bridget (the mannequin) come in and say hello!
