Hello Snowed in Friends


In the beginning didn’t you just love this SNOW? I did and I always do. I feel guilty, but my favorite thing is being snowed in sewing with a big pot of soup on the stove. When I was working, I always kept days to use for a big snow!  Yesterday was the first time I was able to get out of the house in two weeks, my car is snowed in. Believe me, I have finished a lot of sewing and cherished every moment. 


The Mystery Quilt for this year is now pieced and waiting to be quilted. Mystery Saturday will be October 24, 2015 at the Laurel Co Extension office. More details will follow later in the year. I used 3 different rulers with this quilt; I am requiring that one specific one be used.  The second ruler is a perfect one for this project too. If you think you might like attend this year’s mystery and you want to start looking for the rulers, just email me back. Our club members have received the information already.


I hope you have had as much fun as I have had during these two storms even though we did have a leak. Oh by the way, the Mystery Quilt has been named Octavia after the storm. Lol


The April Jabez Retreat is coming up. Would you like to go with us? It is April 23, 24, and 25th.  The price is well worth the food, accommodations and the fellowship with other quilters. If you would like info about it, just email me.


We had to cancel the few classes we had scheduled in January and February so I probably will not schedule anymore for that time next year. We have not been at the farmhouse very much at all this winter. You can always call me if you need something from the shop and if I can get to it, you can come pick it up.   


Awhile back while cleaning and purging in odd places, I ran across some Quilting Folklore or Superstitions. I will start posting one of those each month.
