It’s warm here in Florida

So how are things going with all of you.  We are “HOT” here in Florida but it looks like it is hot in a few places.  Sorry we haven’t been in touch but Joey was gone on a quick little vacation and Margy is being the MOG (mother of the groom) to her eldest son and the wedding is tomorrow.  It will be at a beautiful outside setting so pray for NO rain and a little bit cooler.  We are busy with preparations for the Fall and the holidays.  Can candy corns be too far behind!!!!!!  Lots has been going on in the shop and we are really happy our air conditioning works so well.  Blooming_Horrors

This will be our class with Tonya R. on Tuesday, August 25th.  It is part of our Summer School Series.  It will be all day from 9 to 3.  We are looking forward to the class.


The new fabrics are starting to arrive.  We received over 25 bolts of new batiks that they are marking in.  We also received a lot of pre-cuts from Moda.  One of them was from the new line called “Authentic”.  Here is a sampling of one of the quilts done with the fabrics.  The bolts will follow in about one month.  We bought the whole line.  Authtentic The fabric with the words all over it is so neat.  Oh, I can’t believe I said that “neat”.  I guess the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock is bringing out the old slang.  We were taken with this line.

  Gobble Gobble Margy before she left for the wedding celebration did the cutest quilt using this panel from Sandy Gervais called “Gobble, Gobble”.  It will be the project for the September Holiday Club on Friday, September 5th.

But I am most excited about the arrival of “Lantern Bloom” from Michael Miller Fabrics.  It is terrific.  Here are a few pictures to show you.

The Chinese Lanterns are three-dimensional and the quilts just makes you stop and gaze.  It was entrance to their booth in Pittsburgh at Spring Market. 

Well bye for now.  I promise next week to be better.
