OMGoodness! I missed it...

Hi Everyone,

So this morning as I was getting ready to head into the shop (literally in my undies) I realized that I missed posting on my 5 yr Blogiversary. I can't believe it has been five years since I quit my corporate job to stay home and home school my daughter.  Back in the day I did a lot of sewing... Here is my first post ... Uh oh... I just discovered that none of the pictures from August of 2009 show up anymore. All of the September ones are showing still. Look I was still a traditional girl then hehe.

I don't remember making this quilt... I wonder where it went... I wonder if I gave it to someone or if it is in the bottom of one of my piles somewhere... It was Nov 2009... look perfect points!



These two pictures are for all of my friends that know how much I love brown and batiks NOT!

This one won a design contest.

What! Applique?


Then I discovered Tula Pink....


Sad thing? I didn't know who Heather Ross was but I had some tiny pieces of Mendocino 

Here is where I announced I was opening the shop

Enough of the walk down memory lane :) Thanks to all you lovelies that have been following me since the beginning. Lots of you have been here since before the shop opened. Just hanging out being my friends. I have watched a bunch of you get famous :) Quilty Famous. I love you all.

Hugs,
Julie

  4. Happy Blogaversary! I think brown is a 'starting' color for many of us. Then we see color, fabrics, designers, techniques - a whole new world opens up from that start of brown.

  8. Congrats, Julie!

    wow, you opened your shop almost the same time we came to the bay area - we moved into our house February 17th, 2011, I think.
    And I do believe it wasn't long after I made my first purchase at your shop. I never would have guessed it was quite brand new back then. so super professional!
