The first "Wool Crazy" Class!

Here are pictures of our first "Wool Crazy" club!  I was expecting a larger crowd, but several couldn't make it last minute. Hopefully they will all come next month! It sure was fun! I started them with a pin cushion just to show them the technique! Enjoy the pictures!

Heart Quilt Finished! Yay!

Ta Da!  Sure was a fun one to make, and I love the pinks and browns!  We had our Small Quilts Club yesterday, and crowded everyone into the class room! I didn't really know exactly how many to expect, and whew! There wasn't much elbow room!  We did have fun though, and then after they left, we re-arranged the back of the shop to make a larger classroom area, that we can un-do and re-do as needed!  Today we have our "Wool Crazy" club! I expect a bigger crowd, so hopefully we have enough seating out! I gathered up some fun stuff from my sewing room to bring for my project last night and made some step by step examples to hang up on a wall for the gals to look at! Should be fun! I will post some pictures if I remember, so if any of you who are reading this post will be in the class/club today, (JM) please remind me! LOL!  Have a great weekend everyone!

Sneak Peak of Heart Quilt!

Okay! Here it is so far!  I got up early and started cutting and sewing!  Not many customers at shop today with bad weather on the way, so I'm sewing all day till it's done and maybe even quilted!  The worst part??? Writing the instructions!!!  Do you spell every detail out? Or assume most know???

Working on projects!

Hello!  Just wanted to post about a couple of projects! 
   One is for Small Quilts Club on Friday!  It is a small quilt of course, with cute heart blocks, all done in Civil War reproduction pinks and browns!  So far, very fun!  I'll post a picture when I get a bit more done! 
   The Second project is for Crazy Wool Club on Saturday! I have room for more people to sign up, and hope to get some things all prepared. I will have Warm and Natural batting and muslin ready to go, as well as some great scraps and threads! The club friends will bring scraps and threads from home, but they might like to add to their collection!  I had posted a couple of pictures a couple of posts ago of two little projects I had done right after Christmas. 
   The projects for the magazine, all but two, are at the photographers studio!!!!  He will be taking straight on shots of every project in his studio.  Then the second week of Feb. we will have the photo shoot on location at a wonderful home made from an old barn!  I can't wait to see how they all turn out!  His work is wonderful, so I know it will be great!  Just wait till you see all the wonderful projects!  We actually have 17 in the first issue!  Since we are new, we don't have a lot of advertisers, so we had room for more projects! Yay!  Make sure and subscribe to get in on that first issue!
    Okay, look for pictures soon! I'll be sewing in the morning! Yay!

Winter Stitchin' mini quilt finished!

Happy Thursday!  LOL, I know,  you just get used to saying Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, so I wanted to be different! 

I've been very busy the last couple of days dying lots of pretty colors of wool!  The shelves were getting very pitiful!  Now they are colorful and pretty!  I just heard the buzzer sound on the dryer, so now there is even more! 
I'm posting a picture of my newest little sampler quilt, the third in a series!  It is called "Winter Stitchin" and was 4" blocks with wool applique. Each block was free with a purchase every week. 12 weeks later, you buy a finishing kit!  We still have the kits and blocks if anyone would like to do one, you would need to go to to order!

Enjoy the picture! I hope to quilt it soon, but am still trying to get that big project of mine done! Another one of our designers in the new magazine, sent us her project today! Wow!!!!! Thanks Dawn Heese! I can't wait for everyone to see it! Beeeeautiful!

Have a Happy Weekend everyone!

Happy New Year! Another "Wool Crazy" project!

Okay! Here is another "Wool Crazy" project from "Crazy At Home" I made this past week! I still have some finishing to do, and hope to stitch one more thing on it, but thought I would share it with you all!  I have been sewing for two and a half days mostly in Jammies! But I have been working on a quilt for "Primitive Quilts and Projects Magazine!" So I can't show you that! You will have to see that in the first issue in April!  I have had a lot of fun working on it at home since the shop has been closed a few days!  Happy New Year Everyone and lets all get some sewing and stitching done this year!!!
