The little things...

Hey-

I am in the process of getting a post ready for all of you regarding my amazing weekend at the Fergus Falls Quilt Show (Flippin AWESOME!).  However - I am also enjoying the little things in my life:

1.  American Idol  (Who do you vote off?)
2.  Mom being in town! (Good times!... Lots of laughs!)
3.  A studio that I can work in day in and out!  (Even if I make messes in it!)
4.  Being able to see the grass... (FINALLY!- winter was toooooo long!)
5.  Amazing FRIENDS.. (You know who you are!)
6.  Of course, some of the best CUSTOMERS ever!!!  (ALL of you!)
7.  Opportunities that come my way! (I hate keeping in secrets!)
8.  ROB THOMAS!  (He ROCKS my world!)
9.  Being able to breathe and smell!  WOW!  (It is a whole new feeling!)
10.  Good days... Good times!  

I hope you all can take a moment to embrace all the simple things in life that in the end... are the things that really matter!

Hope you have a great day!

See you tomorrow with my FUN blog post!

Breaking in the Gathering

Last month I started a post and never did finish it... So here it goes!

Last month I took a trip to WI to visit Lisa & Nick (Primitive Gatherings)....  It was so cool because Lisa and I were the first to "break" in The Gathering!  Let me tell you gals... You all need to take a trip there - you won't want to come home!  The "Gathering" is amazing... so amazing, I wanted to move in!!

Upon arrival you will enjoy the most delicious home cooked meals by Lisa's mom, get great night's sleep in super comfy beds with homemade quilts and matching pillow cases...  have access to a great sewing environment complete with sewing machines you can rent...  And...( my fav part) enjoy relaxing by the fireplace with a glass of bubbly....  You and your girlfriends are not only going to relax, but, create some amazing memories over needle and thread! 

Here are just a few picks...  Please visit Primitive Gatherings for more info. 

A BIG thank you to Lisa for her great hospitality!  Thanks for a GREAT weekend... and for taking the time to share your sewing tricks of the trade with me!  I had a BLAST!  You must need me to come again soon?? :-)


I enjoyed learning how to make homemade noodles with Lisa's mom!






The noodles were amazing... so was the Chicken Noodle Soup she made!

Gals working away at the warehouse!

Cool dishes...

I got to share the weekend with some great gals who work at Primitive Gatherings... !!!

New Patterns!

Hey-
Just showing you a sneak peek of the patterns that we should be getting on the website in the next day or so...  Our new series is called Penny Mats thru the Year.  Our small penny mats are such a hit, we decided to give you one for each month.  As you can tell by the pictures below, I had great assistance in the making of these mats!!!

Mom, please let me play with the thread balls??!!!

Pretty PLEASE!

I'll just sit on your projects if you don't let me play with them!
 
They're done!
