Fabric Giveaway, Commemorative Quilt & Celebrating!

This week flew by!  Hannah, Kelly & I spent most days racing around the shop pulling patterns, cutting more kits & restocking patterns!  We had so many orders to ship today, that 40 minutes wasn't enough for the gal to finish our stash...so she had to send us out to the manual station!  Needless to say, we could rock working at the post office now!  We've got this down!!!

I'm happy to say a few more new patterns got done & sent out today including the Autumn Pillow!  So if you ordered a couple patterns that weren't ready - they are or will be done today!  I'm so glad the covers finally got printed and delivered!  It's hard not being able to control that part!  But then again- there were over 70 new patterns that did get completed at one time- so I think that's pretty awesome!!!  And thanks for enjoying the new patterns!  I'm so happy you are all loving them!  That's exactly why I do it!!!!  Someone's got to keep you busy stitching!!!!

The "Mystery" BOM kits are also restocked {including block 1} and the website will be updated this weekend!  So now you can order the first block that has never been available until now!  The charms also came in today so we got all, but a few orders out of the Americana Crow on Spool & Typewriter Charm orders! We are also cutting more of those kits...so be sure to download that free pattern either way and enjoy it!

I was looking at some old pictures and came across some from my grandma & grandpa's 40th wedding anniversary and thought I'd share them with you!  Do you notice the commemorative quilt that we made for them!?  I think I was around 12 when I drew my block with my mom.  She embroidered it, along with several other blocks in the quilt!  I'm hoping to go over to my aunt Batty's house and get a closer look at it as I can't quite remember what I drew!  I'll share more close ups if I get that opportunity!  It's really quite special!  Do any of you still create these commemorative quilts for special occasions?  I know the t-shirt quilts are quite popular for graduates... Let me know!  I'm fascinated by these quilts and signature quilts!

This week Grace went to Kentucky with a friend & her family...so we will celebrating with just the 3 of us!  We have no set plans... except to work a bit each day at the shop!  I'm sure food, road tripping & fireworks will be in there somewhere!  I'll keep you posted!!!  What are your plans?!?!! 

Don't forget to head over to our FB page for "LUCKY" Friday!!!  It's a great way to kick start the Holiday weekend and try your luck at winning a yard of Americana cotton prints from my Humble Beginning fabric line!!!!   I thought it would be perfect to give away on this 4th of July weekend!!  Good luck! Hope you have a great Holiday weekend filled with good food & food friends/family!

Memories are so special, thank you for sharing. For the first time in many years, we have no specific plans for the weekend. Rain is expected for Saturday and my plan is to get some stitching done - me time. On Sunday we will spend time gardening and enjoying being outdoors. A peaceful weekend, feeling grateful for all we have.

Your new fabric line is beautiful as are all your new designs.
