 December 2, 2011 

Hi all!

Happy December!

We've started decorating for Christmas, which is fun!  Randy was inspired to purchase a new Christmas tree.  This one is composed of tiny metallic green apples.  It is really glittery in the sunlight and fun without ornaments!

 Someone also thinks it might be fun to chew on. Look close and you'll see Meiko the black "blob" on the left!  So, the tree has been moved up on a side-board, and I'm "inspired" to make a new runner & tree skirt to match.

I'm using this great poinsettia fabric from DECK THE HALLS, marked down, btw!  :)

We've got lots of CHRISTMAS & WINTER fabrics, many on SALE.  You can see them here:

 I'm also getting ready for 2012, just around the corner now!!

I'll be offering BELLA VERONA as a class starting the 2nd Thursday, January 12th, at 7 pm.  We'd love to have you join us.  This is a lecture/demo class, sewing all done at home.  Sign up now!





Do you know that Aretha Franklin is out touring!  Lucky for us, she recently played at one of the casinos in Oklahoma.  This isn't even "in the boonies", it is "beyond the boonies".  LOL  (No offense meant, Oklahomans!)

Randy first made a couple of phone calls to be sure it wasn't a hoax, and then we ordered up tickets on-line and headed south.  At 8 o'clock the "for real"  Aretha came out on stage!  What a great concert!  

As far as I know, there is no Aretha Franklin fabric, but ELVIS "is in the building"!!  

Yes, we have great NEW "Las Vegas Elvis" fabric.

We've put together an ELVIS fabric bundle for the BIG EZ quilt pattern.  We've included enough fabric so you can "FUSSY CUT" ELVIS and place him in a variety of spots within the quilt.  

Click to see the fabrics close-up and order your own KIT:




The first color choice will be very similar to the fabrics shown on the cover of the book.  

A VINTAGE FLORAL print will be suggested for the border.  The block fabrics will have reds, browns, blue/green, creams & naturals.

There will also be a second choice.  It will use all the gorgeous BLUES, TEALS, GREENS and a touch of gold, as found in TIMELESS TREASURE'S PLUME which will be suggested as the border for this quilt.

 These fabrics are available now.
