Hi all!

Happy early birthday to my Dad!  :)  

Here is my Dad and his older brother, wearing outfits made by one of their sisters for 4-H.


And Happy Birthday to ALL the March babies!

Say it with pennants!  An easy way to set up BIRTHDAY WISHES anywhere.  (Dad, you gave me a funny look when I strung something like this across your office door, but really, this is festive! :)

 The instructions are printed right on the panel!

While The Sunshine State may be getting brighter and more colorful, Kansas remains in its black/white phase of the year.  Have you seen the new movie, Nebraska?  I heard one reviewer ask the director why he shot it in black & white. (btw - Dad's "colorized" photo was shot in Nebraska too!)


 Not quite black/white, but without a lot of color, yet still lovely in it's own way. 

HEARTY GOOD WISHES from designer Janet Clare, was inspired by "winter on the coast".  
So serene. 

I just love this new line from MODA.

Lots of variety of patterns & textures, check it out here:

 If you haven't figured it out from the variety found in my stores, let me tell you, my tastes run the entire spectrum!  

I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Barbara Brackman's blogs!  She too runs the spectrum, tying them all together with history!

Check out this blog, http://historicallymodernquilts.blogspot.com/, covering roughly 1870 - 1970. She has such a great sense of HUMOR!

And then check out her MORRIS influenced fabrics we have on hand.

Barbara's CIVIL WAR blog is an excellent source for block patterns.  Pictured here is the first block in her new BLOCK-A-MONTH series for 2014.

When you need 12" finished block patterns, (like if you are doing the Pizza Box Friendship Exchange), check out this web site every month for FREE BLOCK PATTERNS.  Really interesting!
