Hello Quilters


I always like to start out talking about the weather, don’t I?  I love Summer and vacation and flowers but I adore Fall. I love the color orange so that must be the answer. I don’t wear orange due to my skin color. My mom made me a polyester pantsuit years ago and no one told me it looked nice on me. I figured out later it was not suitable for my skin color. The pantsuit was really nice and yes…polyester…about the 1970’s.


I’m getting real excited about this the weekend and the really cooler temps coming. It makes you want to “hunt” out the left over projects and start sewing and quilting after all the summer activities. Maybe before you do that, come on down and check out the fabrics, and all the supplies you need. You might also want to check out the new quilting t-shirts for only $11.00 and those wonderful dish cloths for only $1.65.
