Back again!

It's been awhile since I have put anything out here on my blog.  The past few weeks have been quite a whirlwind.  We had Quilter's Cruizine (shopping, meals and busses) which was a great success, vended at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island for Minick and Simpson's classes, had our celebration party for the Quilt Sampler magazine (lots of fun was had by all) and then went to Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, UT with three of our four daughters.  Each event was great and created special memories for me.

The quilt market was filled with vendors showing the latest and greatest and we put lots of miles on our feet during those four days.  We learned lots, saw lots, ordered lots and we are now looking forward to seeing those things in our shop. The picture above shows a sample from a new pattern from Grizzly Gulch.

This picture shows off a quilt that I fell in love with.  It's done in some nice 30's reproductions and has some great embellishments done with a new type button maker.  This vendor had us making some great do dads with their handy tool and we loved them all - rings, headbands, and more.  We had lots of fun at this booth.

Well I guess that's it for now - the shop is calling - but I will be back before too long.

Happy Quilting!
