Our Moda rep Bonnie was in this morning. Showing us some great new fabric that I will share with you soon (We'll be getting it in November and December). It got me thinking about the fabric that will be arriving any day.... I had forgotten a little bit how much I loved it. We've had these patterns in for a while. The Pure and Sweet Table Runner....
the Pure Joy quilt, and...

the Pure and Simple quilt pattern have been around for awhile. But now.....
any day......

Pure by Sweetwater will arrive! You loved Authentic and Make Life, and now there is Pure. What do you want to make with it?

Come on...He's Laying on a Quilt!

Totally gratuitous photos of my grandson...

Brannan Keith....

born December 18th...

2009...a day before his grandma's birthday.

Even with my marginal photography skills, he looks pretty amazing!

Lizards, Alligators, and Bobcats, Oh My!

While the Stash Gals were in Florida, we decided to take a walk every evening. The Hyatt Grand Cypress seems to be on extensive acreage so we felt like we were out in the swamps(or on the edges of a golf course).

We saw this regal fellow. But someone got some information from the girl at the gift shop that there was other wildlife out there... some alligators and bobcats.

Ok alligator, we are in Florida. Some Stash gals thought they were lurking at every storm drain and were going to come out and get us.

We also saw lots of these little lizards. Kristen told us they were anole. We dealt with all of that wildlife...but then there was a rustle under our walkway (I say rustle...they say unworldly growl and ready to pounce)...

The Stash girls took off running!

3 Series Love at BU

My photography doesn't do justice to these little beauties-the new machines from Bernina! It's the 3 Series; sleek little machines with a cool black screen.
We somehow missed the info that this was a hands-on class and we needed our own sewing supplies. Fortunately sewers are kind, generous people. Pins and scissors from a nice girl from Indiana, zippers from North Carolina, and a cutting mat and rotary cutter from a nice lady from across the room.

Look at the cute little purse we made!

Here's Kathy with our new favorite Bernina. It looks like a small version of the 830 with it's slide table and bobbin viewer. Hope to have it in the store soon!

Happy Birthday to Us!

Stash is one year old! It has been quite a ride!

So to celebrate we are having an outdoor quilt show on our patio along the banks of Mill Creek!

These are all projects that are customer's have made over the last year!

Our customer's are the most creative, generous people you can find.
Thank you! We couldn't have done it without you!
