Happy Fall days to all! Isn't this just the best time of the year! I love the warm days and cooler nights...opening the windows and getting a nice breeze coming through when I sleep....wish it would stay this way all year round!

********************

We've posted new classes up on the class schedule list...click on the above link in red and you'll see what's going on right now at the shop!

Doris came by on Saturday with a sweet litter of kittens...
When she called me to say she was running by with them, I immediately froze.....thinking
OMG what am I going to do with these kittens...(I still have the four here that were born in the Spring!! Of course they all have names and are as sweet as pie....Snickers and Frankie are the boys and Jet and Alley are the girls...doesn't someone out there need a lovey purring kitten???)
Anyway, I get off-track....
Doris made these little cuties...only 6 remain!
Guaranteed not get any bigger and you don't have to feed them!


********************

All of the Quiltmania Magazines (the first order) will be in on Wednesday!
Right now, Simply Vintage is sold out
(but we have one more batch coming)

There is only 1 or 2 of the Special Issues still available and maybe a couple of the bi-monthly magazines as well.....

(Pictures of the front covers are in the last blog post that we did.)

More coming tomorrow!!
