Hope the summer is/has
been good to you. My family is topping off the summer with a
trip to "The Beach".
We love the Florida Gulf
coast! Very relaxing, lots of wide, white sand beach, good food & people too.
We highly recommend it as a destination. :)
Lily stayed up late a
couple of nights before we left and managed to finish a new
"weekender" bag. Check it out!! So cute!
size to carry over the shoulder onto the airplane.
She used ARIZONA,
Gallery Fabrics, and the ARAGON bag pattern from Sew
Tomorrow is THURSDAY,

with SEWING CLUB. Tomorrow Mary will be demonstrating the
CREATIVE GRIDS SCRAP CRAZY 6 non-slip ruler.

Club, even if you need us to mail your kits to you!
Florida, Lily & I have only hit one quilt shop (so far, as we're
only into day 3 of the trip!). But they must have missed
"the memo" because they weren't one of the 38 participating
Florida shops in the Row by Row.
Whether you are staying
close to home or travelling around the States & Canada this
check out the ROW BY ROW EXPERIENCE, a new kind of Shop Hop.
There are more than 50
participating shops in KANSAS alone!
Only New York,
Pennsylvania, Michigan & Texas have more participating shops than
Kansas. When you think about the differences in population,
Kansas quilters, TAKE A BOW!
Click here for details:
As I have 2 shops, I
have two rows. The theme of the Row by Row is SEW A
SEASON. We've chosen two different seasons.
Still, as of this writing,
neither store has had a "winner". You can be the
"winner", by bringing your completed quilt, which included 8
different Kansas Rows. You'll win an assortment of 25 FAT
QUARTERS. Include the row of the store you come to, and you'll
receive a bonus prize!
