Christmas in July

We've been busy little elves working on a couple of new Christmas patterns. Jeanne is up to her elbows in fabric, batting, wire, and beads. Now doesn't that make you curious? On the other hand, I spent some times last night sitting on the living room floor laying out fabric, batting, quilt top. Hmmmm...sounds like someone is going to be doing some hand quilting pretty soon.

We hope your summer is going well and that you're enjoying the type of fun you love. We're spending time at little grandson softball games, campfires and S'Mores, and gardening. Jeanne has a weekend planned of canning pickles. Don't say we don't know how to rock and roll!

Happy Birthday America!

What a glorious 4th of July here in Wisconsin. Just went out to get the paper and it is awesome-a little cooler than yesterday, sun is shining and there is a slight breeze. Great day to be alive.

We've been out and about the last couple of weeks-sorry the posts have been sparse. But we've gotten all our new patterns off to our distributors to start carrying in their inventory. Don't forget to check out our web site for new ideas for patterns for home, kids, and yourself. We'll be uploading the next segment of our Sophie free block of the month this week. Sophie's been taking a vacation so you haven't seen her in a while, either.

We hope your celebration in America is safe and happy. If you're not celebrating the 4th, have a wonderful Sunday and save a few minutes for stitching along the way!
