BTW...It's getting a bit busy around here seeew be warned, if I disappear it's because the "Mothership" and I have chosen to focus on our Shoppe set up. Try as we might to set up early, those "details" always seem to really materialize at the last minute. Seeew here's my millionth reminder...we are closed on Thursday, November 6, 2014 to set up for this....
But since you are here...I might as well entertain you. Right?
Seeew before I get too carried away showing you the things you should love to come in and buy, let's announce the winner of that luscious and dreamy Winter's Lane Charm Pack.
To the beat of a drum we go.....drumroll please:

Well thank you Monica. We look forward to seeing you - please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange delivery of your prize.
Now...what do I entice you with now?
Seeew, have you been paying attention to our "Breakfast Club?" It's our monthly club in which Jan (my "Mothership") shares a new small project while serving up a delicious breakfast snack. Our most recent one was on October 25 and I think everyone had a good time. Everyone is asked to bring a special project to share and there is time for an "Open Sew" afterwards.
November's Breakfast Club will be on Saturday, November 22. We will announce registration soon across all of our social media channels and website. Seeew stay tuned to that! I worry sometimes as people literally say to me, "I get your emails but don't read them." Of course, they want to know how they missed out? I can provide answers for a lot of things, but I honestly can't answer that one. All I know is that I communicate everything we do more than any other shop I know of with this blog, email, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest seeew if you are reading...consider yourselves lucky because you are in "the know." Gotta be in the know...ya know?
I'm sure many of you know this by now but I had to show it again to gawk at the quilting. Melissa really does do an excellent job with our samples. Much of what we show you is custom, but she does do some basic stuff as well.
The Little Lollies Lollipop is a Shoppe favorite seeew we made two new versions! As you can see above we have our Fall Little Lollies Lollipop Quilt Kit using warm browns and golden oranges above. I have a hard time picking my favorite version because I love our Winter Little Lollies Lollipop Quilt Kit as well! Decisions, decisions. I have thing for wintery blues and luscious candy Christmas reds right now seeew that's the one I got my eye set on. Eye spy my little eye.
We've also been creating a lot of new quilt samples for Spring (Christmas doesn't stay around here forever anymore). This next one is a gem. It's A Girl In Paris but in an entirely new colorway. I particularly love the yellow border...I'm obsessed with it actually. It just makes my heart skip a beat. I know it's fall, but come next Spring...you're going to want this and you can get started now!
Below is our version of Joanna's (of Fig Tree) Milky Way . Here's a work in progress picture and everything is swimming along. "Just keep swimming." Our sample is a king sized (special request for my mom's home) but our kit will measure at 78" x 78".
Alrighty, this concludes today's post. You all are getting more info and pictures from me than you ever have, seeew I hope you know what to do with it:-)
Congratulations to Monica and as I used to say during my tour guide days, "The pleasure was mine." ~ Brian
