If you love your mom as much as I love mine ...you may want to grab a box of Kleenex because this little video (below) can stir some emotions. When Thumper's mother starts talking, I just melt. I don't know why. It could be the music, it could be watching Bambi and his mom frolicking in the woods...but it certainly tugs at the heart strings. Take a look.
All playfulness aside...Happy Mother's Day to all! The two of us have been busy preparing for our Mother's Day Breakfast Club Brunch coming up this Saturday (May 7, 2016) from 9am until 11am! I'm excited to see what our caterer, Priscilla "Queen of the Dessert" <-----this is what I've dubbed her-----comes up with! I hear she's going to be slavin' over a hot stove to make a delicious brunch! The "Mothership's" project is super cute and very, very practical. I know our guests are going to love it and I think they'll love it more when they find out what she has planned for them! Our Mother's Day Breakfast Club Brunch is the kick-off to the return of our popular Breakfast Club. We had put it on hold while we prepared for everything that has gone on in the Shoppe the last few months seeew it will be fantastic to see both familiar and new faces!
Meanwhile...in the Shoppe we just received another new collection pictured below called "Picnic In The Park" and it is available both in-store and on our website by clicking here. You can order Fat Quarters, 1/2yds, 3/4yds, and yardage! We think this one is super cute and it needs something special to be made with it. Strawberries, miniature ice cream cones, bicycles....everything you could ask for in a sweet and adorable fabric collection.
I truly want to show you everything we have going on, but unfortunately I'm just one person and there is only seeew much room in these blog posts and communications. My hope is simply that you are doing your own searching of our new website, www.hollyhillquiltshoppe.com and discovering our fabrics, notions, patterns (I've been loading lots of patterns folks), classes & workshops and of course...KITS!
Speaking of kits, I love that retro, 50's flashback style ...anything that reminds me of the classic malt shop of the 1950's...bright colors, modern lines, neon signs and lots of innocence. Our Sodalicious Quilt (pictured below) is made with the fabulous Sodalicious collection by Emily Herrick for Michael Miller and is perfect for those family movie nights! Our complete quilt kit includes ample fabric to complete the quilt top and binding. The pattern is also included. You will need the Quick Curve Ruler to make this quilt. For the month of May, our kit is 25% off! Seeew get it now because at the end of May it goes back to regular price if there are any left. I love, love the little retro bottle cap print and the straw print makes excellent binding. Melissa, as always, did an excellent job on the quilting. She always picks just the right style for our quilts. Love her.
Work continues on our Farm Girl blocks with registration for the all-new Barn Girl Block of The Month already underway. We have several more people who need some time to register seeew we have extended the registration to May 11, 2016. That is the absolute latest we can go as we do have to plan cutting and preparation time. Seeew...I will say this very clear, if you want to be in our Barn Girl Vintage Block of The Month...this is the time to register. This program is $29.95 a month (plus shipping). Each month your block will be mailed to you. Participants will receive one 14"x14" block kit each month for 9 months along with cutting diagrams, piecing tips, fabric identification list and cutting instructions. Click here to read more details or to register.
Our Farm Girl Vintage B.O.M. started last August (2015) but you can still purchase our individual block kits. Ever since we displayed the blocks on the clothesline they continue to be very, very popular! Now that the farmhouse is no longer in the Shoppe, the two of us had a chance to move some cabinetry and tables to get this section near completion. We just love it. It's so much more cheerful than the primitive we used to have up in this area. Don't get me wrong, we still like primitive, but it was time for something new for now! Still plenty of work and surprises ahead! I'll keep you posted!
Enjoy your Mother's Day and remember to stay seeew-cial with those you love! ~ Brian
