Sunday Snow

Well, here we go again. I woke up early and heard rain on the rooftop. Most of the snow on the roads washed away. That didn't last long. Oh well, after I get the dishes done, make lunch, time to sew! How about stove top pot roast? Yum, yum. Warm comfort food. What should I do? I need to finish my Swoon and get Full House built!

Happy Saturday/

The snow is quickly melting away! The sun is shining (but more rain and wind are coming).

I have a new pegboard display for my quilt show. I've just went shopping for some blank signage. I need a cute header for it, so I'll be off to the scrapbook store for some cute (pink of course) paper on Monday. It is has three panels --

One is for hand embroidery
One is for English Paper Piecing (have to make a story board-I'm doing a demo)
One is for sewing notions.

I'm super excited! I did order a gridwall display and it will ship in February (I hope) and it will be full of Schnibbles, Bunny Hill, Acorn Quilts Cozy Quilts new Thimble Blossoms, & more! Things are slowly coming together for my new adventure--I really want to do more quilt shows (hopefully within a one to four hour commute radius). I need a book display. Do you like books front out in a rack (they do get some bending) or like a little library? I am still looking for some fun shelving (I have my eye on some that will need to be repainted (a soft white)). I also would like some black polyester (lightweight) draping (have you ever tried to press 120" inch x 8 feet draping) I think poly is the way to go.

I'm looking for a old time mannequin/body double to be my apron display. Something for purses/bags too. I may just try a coat rack. I like to try on purses before I buy them, don't you?

I've ordered floss displays (otherwise known as Artbin boxes) for my Cosmo Floss and Seasons Floss. I like to hand embroider, but I'm better at cross stitch. So glad to see it coming back!

Now all I need is a pink pick up truck and an empty Bambi Airstream trailer to haul it all in. Hey, a girl can dream, right?

Check out my pins--

See you soon!

ps--FedEx just brought me a box--maybe UPS is not too far behind! I'll be sure to post some pictures on Facebook and Pinterest for you! My first show of the year is 17/18 February with Kitsap Quilters at the Kitsap Pavillion.

Google Chrome/This just in...

Hmm. Not so sure I like this.

But on a happier note, my UPS driver braved the snow last night to drop off some boxes!

Have I mentioned how much I love precuts? Especially charm packs?

We're in the midst of a lovely snowstorm. Not the best timing, but oh well. So, please visit the shop later today for "This just in..."

Do you Schnibble?

I must confess. I love little quilts. Why? Because I can get them done. I'm always making samples or doing charity stuff, I like love the little quilts. I've made a few, Mom has made one or more for me and a friend made one for me. Miss Rosie is one of my top 5 favorite pattern designers. She really hit the target with these. Plus, I adore charm packs.

So, Sherri at A Quilting Life and Sinta at the Pink Pincushion are doing another year of Schnibbles. So, I'm no longer a lurker, I'm a Schnibbler.
And, because I love my blog followers, I have a giveaway for you.

The January pattern is Full House and two charm packs of Primitive Gatherings. All you need to do is add a little background fabric.

Invite your friends. This is going to be fun!

I'll draw a name on Sunday night (around 6pm) so I can mail it on Monday!

I have other kits available in the shop.
