more photos of "Hugs and Holly"

 Really love the graphics and colors.  Bought the whole line.  It doesn't show very well in this picture but all of the tonals have snowflakes on them.  And the panel has so many fun images!
I had a lovely break after the WCC Craft Show and the Tri-County Quilt Tour.  My husband, daughter Sarah, my mom and I all went to New Mexico to visit daughter Hannah and son-in-law Josiah.  We had a great time touring and hiking and going to flea markets...Piet and I and the girls hiked to Plateau Point in the Grand Canyon while Josiah took my mother on the rim bus tours.  What a charmer!  And we found lots of fun jewelry, baskets, pottery...the Southwest is so uniquely beautiful.  But it is good to be home and the sun has even been shining!  
And now, believe it or not, it looks like they will soon be OPENING THE BRIDGE ON KOK ROAD!!!  So then it will be PARTY TIME!  Keep an eye on the blogspot for details!

Finally, a blog update...

 Here is a new quilt from Kathy Schmidt's fabric line.  It was a group effort.  Sharon pieced it, Megan quilted it, I sewed on the buttons and binding and Elaine finished hand sewing the binding.  Thanks, everyone!  Pattern $10.00. 
 Complete kit with backing $150.00
 And here (drum roll please...) is Folktales 2012 June Shop Hop Block.  Hope you like it.  The fabric is so sweet.
 Meg's new "Gardener's Alphabet".  These are the only blocks I have gotten done, but it is a start!  A great excuse to get a new box of crayons, and you don't have to share!  My husband sees me at the kitchen table coloring and I have to say "Not now, I"m WORKING"

 CHRISTMAS!  Love it!  This is the new line from "The Wooden Bear".  The panel makes all the gift bags and ornaments that you see in the picture below.  Fast and Fun.
The panel is $7.50 and has the directions for everything in the picture.  The fabric is $11.00 per yard
