No way! The last Happy Monday of 2012!

Hi Everyone,

Wow, I can't believe it is the end of this crazy year! Believe me when I woke up on 1/1/2012 I never thought I would have a Brick and Mortar shop by the end of the year. It was the furthest thing from my mind. I am still wondering if I am insane to be doing this.

It was a sad year here at the end with all of the tragedies. I hope that everyone had at least one bright spot this year and I pray next year will be the best one ever.

We had fabric avalanche again... want to see what came in?

Luxe In Bloom:


Constellations:


Cleo:

Blomma:


Hex on the Beach Kits:

How about a little New Year's Eve Giveaway? It is open until I wake up tomorrow morning on 1/1/2013. Just leave a comment telling me your favorite fabric, sewing, or quilting acquisition of the past year. I will draw a number in the morning and the winner get's to pick a fat quarter bundle of their favorite colorway from Constellations.

I just posted the calendar for January we are closed this week through Thursday for inventory. We will also be closed the 10th and 11th before the Grand Opening on the 12th. The website is always open though.

Talk soon... I promise!

Love,
Julie

Friday Fun Day and the Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

Do you know I didn't go Christmas shopping until last night? The shop really is taking my whole day and night right now. So after work (about 6:15) I went shopping and got home about 8:30 and had dinner and went to bed LOL Thankfully the kids want stuff I could get online and I only had the hubby and stockings to buy for :)

Here is what we are giving away on Maureen's blog today:

A fat quarter bundle of Roughing It. I think my Eagle Scout needs a new quilt out of the nature colorway (the one on the left). Head on over to Maureen's and see if you can get yourself some.

Have a super awesome Friday!

Love,
Julie

I will be putting the new photos of the shop on the slideshow on the website.

I have Alchemy Voile in and I have been wanting to make myself something with it. I was so excited to see this tutorial this morning from Anna at Noodlehead ... I have made myself jammie pants before but this is so much easier. I can't wait to make some for me :)

Hugs!
Julie

Eep... where did the week go?

Hi Everyone,

I promise pics of the (open) shop tomorrow. I took some, but left the camara there last night. So in lew of that... how about some pictures from "The Fearless Fabric Fiends" ?

Poochie Bag
This is an adorable little swap bundle that my sweet friend Adrianne made for my other sweet friend Annemarie. I wish I was as brilliant as her... so gorgeous!

Finished Bento Box Quilt
This awesome Bento Box quilt is by my very own Mallory ... I get to call her that because she is helping in the shop on the weekends as her real job allows :)

DSCN5847
Look at tis sweet threesome my friend Jan made. I wish these were here to decorate my house right now :)

Zig Zag Quilt
My friend Lindsey made this from Utterly Inspired by Maureen I think this was a half yard bundle though.

Have a super Thursday!

Happy Monday

Yippee! My favorite color is the color of the year for 2013! Emerald....

I love Emerald green. It is the color of my eyes. It's true! (you see people are going to argue that I have blue eyes but I promise they are green... wait until you see me wear green then you will know) It is always so hard to find clothes in that color unless they have reindeer or Christmas trees on them (not a good look for spring :) ). So bring on the green baby!

Salt Water is coming today and tomorrow Amy Butler's Alchemy, Alchemy Voile, some of Ty Penningtons new Impressions (I only bought the gorgeous blues), Ostara from Dear Stella, and the Free Spirit Designer solids that match Salt Water will be here. I am kitting up all of Tula Pink's free patterns.

I better get to work.

Hope you have the most awesome week!

Love,
Julie

Free Patterns

Don't ya love 'em? When I first came back to quilting a couple years ago I used to save every free pattern I came across ... obviously I can't do that any more.

As you all know I have some super amazing friends in The Quilted Fish's Design Team and even though I am too busy to join them on their adventures anymore that doesn't mean I don't want to toot their horns still.

 Go here to get the new fun e-mag that Amanda produced. Starting today she is posting tutorials for the projects in the Magazine here. Things like this:

Ornaments by my Sally

And:

My Brooke's Table Runner

The Magazine is a treat for the eyes and the girls have outdone themselves as usual.

Have fun!

Friday Fun Day and the Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

Do you believe I still have about 5 packages from the sale to ship out. All ones that I am waiting on answers from the buyers but still. I just finished yesterday. CRAZY Honextly never have seen anything like that. When I open the shop everyone will be dissapointed because all of the fabric is gone LOL Okay maybe not but ... seriously!!!

My sweet friend Shanna at Fiber of all Sorts is hosting the giveaway today. Here is what you could win:

So head on over and enter on her blog.

Since tomorrow is December... sheesh where did this month go??... I was thinking I would put a link to my Christmas Runner tutorial that I did last year. Since I never posted it here but did it for my sweet friend Sally's blog. It is funny... I come up with wierd names for my items that have obscure meanings that only I understand. I called this one "Better Than Mistletoe" and then this year I had to remember why... it took me a while :)


So if you would like to make one of your own (super fast project, I promise) you can click HERE for the PDF and here are the two templates Circle and Bow.

My friend Jenelle posted some awesome tutorials for Holiday items today on her blog as well (I especially love the mushrooms) head over and check them out at Echinops and Aster.

Have a super weekend!

Love,
Julie

Happy Birthday To Me... and Happy Monday

Hi Everyone,

Yep, it's my birthday I am mumble mumble years old today. So what does my awesome birthday have in store... first I have to get dressed then I have to fight my way through traffic to the dr. office so I can get my wound checked out. If you haven't seen the facebook page I had a little accident with a certain sharp object on Saturday. Then I need to get to work becuase I still have at least 40 orders to get out from Friday. I guess that is what I get for having a b-day on Thanksgiving/Black Friday weekend :) But at least one day this week I am going to take a break and go shopping. I need clothes bad.

So let's jump on the "Giving Handmade" bandwagon and support some of our fellow artists this Chistmas. Head on over and see my friend Cori for a list of great independant shops and an awesome bunch of giveaway prizes. Here is one of the two prizes that I am giving away:

A bundle of all of Lizzy's bracelets. No, they aren't in yet. I got these at sample spree when I was at Market :)

Hope you all enjoy my birthday :) Have an awesome week :)
