I thought it would be easier…

I always told Holly it would be so much easier writing the blog post if I lived in Virginia Beach!  If I was working in the shop and could easily take pictures and show you everything that was new!  Well, I guess I was wrong!

I maybe in Virginia Beach…and I maybe in the shop…and I might even be taking pictures…but actually getting them posted has been hard!  Seems I would rather work on a shop sample in my sewing room, rather then post…surprise!

Anyway, here’s what new lately!

photo(60)Table Please is the latest book from Art to Heart.  Fun-in her usual way!  I am working on a fun flip flop table runner from the book- great for the beach house!

Lots and lots and lots of precuts from Moda came yesterday!  Charms, jelly rolls, hexagons, layer cakes.

photo(62)Sunnyside from Kate Spain.

photo(63)Bits and Bobbins from Pat Sloan.

photo(65)More Midwinter Reds from Minick and Simpson.

61yjj-bx1GL._SX300_Floral Gatherings from Primitive Gatherings!  OK, so I was so excited about these, I forgot to take a picture!  These are little prints, civil war colors that go with the shirtings that arrived recently!  Love them!

photo(64)Another group…I didn’t even get the name of this one…

We also got lots of new minkee fat quarters!  Even some Cat in the Hat!

Then the “Moda Man” was here and we were ordering things for March and April.


I guess somewhere in there we had Halloween…

photo(68)Check out some of the crazy girls from Lisa’s Spooktacular event!  Sure wish I could be that wild and crazy…(well just a little…).

My parents have also been in town for about 10 days.  So, we have been doing some home improvements and also being tourists.

photo(67)We went and toured the Wisconsin again.  Really wonderful that you can now see so many more spaces on the ship!

Also made a trip to the boardwalk and out to Fort Story to look at the lighthouses.


A big welcome to all the quilters here in Virginia Beach this weekend for


Hope to see you all at the shop!

Later, Sandra

Friday Already?

How did it get to be Friday already? A cool, sunny Friday too!  Actually could wear long sleeves…even a sweater!

More goodies are pouring into the shop, take a look.

photo(53)The latest issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects- great issue!

photo(54)A couple of new wool books and kits

photo(55)These two are from Needl’ Love.  Each kit, includes the book, fabrics and wools for less then $20!  Limited supply.

photo(57)This is a great new pillow (pattern and kit) from Primitive Gatherings.  If you have a stash of wool scraps, this would be a great project!

We also have a new table runner sample and kit, made from the new line by Scrumptious.

A monogrammed baby bib kit from Bunny Hill Designs.

Several new wool felt ornament kits.

Wonder where those pictures are…

Also, several new books, patterns and a bit of fabric has come in this week.

Another really new and exciting thing…

photo(56)The Starbucks’ Christmas cups are here!  Or, maybe that is just exciting for me…

Tomorrow is also Lisa’s Boo Spectacular event.  Sewing from noon to midnight at the shop.  $20 per person,  four spots left I believe.  I would be in on it, if my parents weren’t due to arrive tomorrow…Lisa and her groupies are so wild and fun and crazy and out there….

photo(58)Here is Lisa and Ellen at a recent Sewaton!  They were getting a little ‘excited’ over a visit from my daughter and her sugar gliders.

photo(59)This little one is Hector.  Sweet as can be, loves to talk to all of the ‘ladies’ during the Sewathon.  His mate, Andie- not so sure about all of those crazy women…

Guess I should go finish cleaning my house before my parents get here…or rake a few leaves…or put the binding on that quilt…hmmmm

Happenings Around the Shop

After far too long of quiet, we are finally seeing our UPS man most every day!

imagesWe’ve gotten batiks, Moda, hand dyed wools, wool and wool felt kits, books, and patterns!  WOW!!!!

Scrumptious from Bonnie and Camille

photo(16)some yardage

photo(3)and lots of precuts!

Hand dyed wools from Primitive Gatherings.  Lots of fall and holiday colors!


Also lots of new wool kits from Primitive Gatherings

photo(21)plus their new book Flannel Gatherings.

photo(22)Turns out we’ve had several special order requests for more Primitive Gatherings kits.  I am going to place an additional order on Friday morning, so if you want anything special call me at the shop tomorrow and I will add it to the order. (Sandra at 523-2711)

I almost forgot, we also got some Primitive shirting bundles too.


Then we got a line from Jo Morton

photo(30)which we made into this kit

photo(29)(which we have two kits left of).

We have 15 bolts from Hampton Ridge, for our Civil War fabric fans.

photo(31)Sorry, I got so excited I took a picture before they were unwrapped…or even all out of the box!

We have a table runner sample and kits from this line too.

photo(43)We have gotten in lots of the new Seasonal Silhouette kits from Laundry Basket.  Between back orders and  their popularity, they are hard to get into the shop!

Just look at what Janet made!

photo(47)She mounted it on a canvas- how great is that!

We got the latest book from Need’l Love

photo(48)and a great new fat quarter friendly book.


Then we got samples and three different wool felt  ornament kits.

Cataloger.Image.phpWarm Hands

Cataloger.Image.phpWarm Feet

Cataloger.Image.phpand Snow Folk.

Additionally we have many new baby/kid quilt samples and kits!

photo(50)All from one great $10 book!


So, as you can see, it is hopping around the shop!

As a matter of fact, Heidi-Idy was so overwhelmed by it all…

photo(52)we had to send the poor girl on a two week trip to the spa!  Hopefully, she will get a full makeover, and get a bit of rest…

Hope that was enough reasons to come and visit us soon!

Later, Sandra
