Spring is in the Air!

We are doing some reorganizing and spring cleaning.  The Kok Road bridge is still not complete so to entice all of you to make the extra effort to come and see me I am going to post a special deal for a random day of each week until the bridge is finally open.  And then we are going to have a BIG PARTY!  
Until they get the bridge back open you have to get to Folktales by taking Front Street to 17th Street and then going South.  Follow the bend onto Kok Road.  Folktales is 1/2 mile on your left.

 Arlene Neely's new "Sparkle" fabrics and some fresh new spring projects

 A new wool project from "LilyAnna Stitches".  There are kits available
 Crabapple Hill's "Aunt Lucy's Button box".  Mary King made these samples for me.  Thanks, Mary!

 The new patterns from Crabapple Hill arrived this week.  Gardener's Alphabet is a gorgeous Block of the Month, and there are several single patterns, as well.  Hearts and bunnies and an Easter basket...
And this is a children's apron from Cotton Ginny.  There are 3 animals on each pattern and there are 3 different patterns so there are lots of choices!
That's it for tonight.  Time for bed!

Happy Valentine's Day!

    Lots of the fabric goodies that were ordered at Quilt Market are being delivered, and I have made several new samples for the shop.  The remodel is going well.  We have one room completely finished and have begun the second room.  Lots of noise and dust but I think you will agree with me when you see the first room finished that it is definitely worth the inconvenience!  I am thrilled with it.  And really anxious to get it all finished so I can fill it up again with all my favorite things!  I also purchased a new computer but have not had time yet to figure out how to transfer all my info and passwords so I need my kids to come home for a visit and rescue me!  I will start snapping photos as soon as I can figure out how to post them.  The brain is just so full of other really vital all the lyrics to every song "Bread" ever sang, there is just no room left.  I hope you have some chocolate today and maybe a chance to take a few stitches.
