Home Sweet Home!

I had a wonderful Mother's Day with my daughter and extended family in SC. I hope you all did as well. We spent our days on the pontoon fishing and relaxing; just being with family is awesome. My brother is a wonderful cook and my sister-in-law makes “the best” homemade bread!! No bread machine here, all done by hand. We had grilled blackened-redfish as well as good ole burgers and ribs and what I call "fat mac". Homemade mac and cheese with large elbow macaroni. Love that good old southern cookin. Okay girl, back to daily walks again….. I gain 10 lbs every time I go home.

Well, now that I am home, are you wondering what in the world am I working on? Special orders right now and I have so many fun things to come this summer. I just purchased a line of civil war fabrics for table runners, wall hangings and lap quilts; I love the colors in this collection. In addition to the civil war fabrics I bought tons of fat quarters for thread catchers.
 I received 3 special orders while I was away and all of them are going to be so much fun to work on.  I love playing with fabric so I hit the stores looking for just the right fabric for each one,  I am waiting on batiks for a lighthouse and ocean scene for one of them and greens for another but keep watching my shop, I will have them soon. All 3 are "new designs" for my shop but I love the opportunity to create for you.

I have been looking around local quilt shops and getting ideas from fellow quilters for new items for the shop, I have some surprises and new items coming soon. Thank all of you for your continued support of my shop and my love for quilting. If it were not for you my dream of having a successful shop would be just that, a dream. Your business is truly appreciated.

Two projects going at the same time. I love this project as it allows me to be creative. Bet you can not guess what it will be. What is that big brown thing on the left?

New civil war fabrics you will be seeing soon in my work.

Cabin in the woods, I need to finish this one, I have beautiful blues and browns for quilt stars. But it is another one of those UFO's. (UnFinished Objects)

See my note on the eagle? I asked Mr. to help me remember this eagle needs an eye before I quilt it. He put a note on it.
