Well I decided to bite the bullet and get a professional website made and it will be up and running by the end of this week. I just wasn't happy with the size of the pictures for the products and some other issues on the old websites. That's what you get when you try to do something cheap!
I have alot of new products to show you but am waiting for the new website. I have designed a few new things myself and am just finishing up the samples and patterns.
I just returned from Seattle,WA where my husband had some meetings to attend and where they wine and dine me as well. One nice surprise was that there were so many quilt shops in a 2 hour radius of Seattle. My great husband drove me around to about 20 of them (I think there were 42 all together). Bill had to take a picture of me outside of each one. I will post some of my favorites when I get a chance. This and next month are quilt show months so I am very busy getting things organized for that.
I hope you will find the new website easier to see and easier to navigate.
Talk to everyone again soon.

This little girl's growth chart is called "Bloomin' Up" thanks to my husband for coming up with the name. I have kinda of a theme going with "up" being in the name of the growth chart patterns and I just couldn't come up with a name that worked so as he is watching the hockey game he casually says "How about Bloomin' Up" and I say PERFECT!

This is my husband trying some fancy moves.
My daughter Krista and her boyfriend Matt!
My son Michael was also home for the weekend from university.
One of the new projects that I wanted to work on for months but was waiting for the laser cut "Silhouettes" to arrive. They finally came! I know it is past Fall but now there is plenty of time to get this tabletopper or wallhanging done for September. I just need to finish the machine quilting and binding. Kits are available for $79.50 (fabric, pattern, 3 pkgs of Silhouettes and binding.)
We were doing a demo night at the guild so I decided to do it on the Twister Tool.
This is "Snowman Twist"! He has a 3 dimensional scarf that hangs to the side and down. "Snowman Twist" pattern is available is 3 sizes so you can use the regular Twister tool (5" squares) or the mini (3 1/2" squares) or the itty bitty (2 1/2" squares) . I used the mini and without binding it measures 33" x 36".
Another project that I finished just before Christmas was an Advent wallhanging using the "Stocking Stuffers" panel. With some the the cordinating fabric in that line I made the wallhanging to hold the 25 little stockings.
This the panel from the "Stocking Stuffers" fabric line by Northcott. I cut the stockings out, sewed them together and attached them with little snowflake buttons.
Another cute item I made up was the "Nail Salon in a Bag" The bag holds 8 bottles of nailpolish and there is lots of room for the other items. The pattern comes with a tool holder as well.
Zachary and Lucas turned 2!!!!! Another special happening in January!
A big box, what can be inside?
(Mom is in the background expecting baby boy no. 4)
Sometimes the box is just more fun!
And what's a birthday without a Thomas the Train cake. Their Mom does a wonderful job making their birthday cakes!
