When we get a chance to take pictures at the shop, I'll update the blog and put them on...(I don't know where the day went today!)


Block 3 of the Settler's Pride block of the month is now ready to be picked up! If anyone that normally picks it up needs to have it mailed....just email me and let me know!


Finally....got a chance to sit down and take some pictures of the inside of "Bird in Hand"! I know some of you girls wanted to see what the projects were before deciding if you wanted the book...so here are a few pics...NOT EVERYTHING by any stretch of the imagination...there are several wonderful quilts, other small projects...it was just hard to get pictures of everything, the way the book was laid out....
I'm putting a couple of the copies on the website in case anyone needs to have it shipped...I've got 4 copies left that are going to the shop. I can't wait to find a little time to make some of the little sewing goodies from the book!! (Book price $25.95).








Also...I have a wonderful new line of patterns coming in from Walnut Ridge Primitives....they'll be here next week!
AND...as soon as I get a little time to take a picture or two (or three), we found a few new (OLD) treasures that we'll be bringing in on Saturday!!
So more is coming!! Lisa
