It's been so cold lately I decided to work on some summer themed projects to brighten up my home. I found this free pattern online, and I thought I would share it for anyone else who longs for summer right now! The pattern is called "Watermelon Whimsy" by Lindsey Weight, and I think it is just perfect for brightening up my dining room on a grey cold day.
You can find this pattern online, or we can print it off at the shop for you for $3 to cover ink and paper costs. I think our watermelon fabric would be perfect on this, don't you? We even have a couple options for the outer border! Which is your favorite?
We get asked about our apron pattern a lot, so we spent a long time trying to find a comparable apron pattern for you, and I think we may have done it! This pattern is called "Easy-On Apron", and true to its name, its easy to put on! We figure if you leave the tie on the back off, it'll be just like our slip on aprons!
There is a little over two months until the April Retreat, if you are attending please remember that your balance is due by March 21, 2022.

WE HAVE ONE BARN TRAIL QUILT KIT LEFT.
We are creating an interest list for this new Block of the Month called "Masterpiece". It starts in May of this year. We do not have a price figured out yet, but the quilt will be big! It is a 108" square.
Please remember the interest list does NOT mean you are signed up for "Masterpiece", it just gives us an idea of how much fabric we need to order, so if you think you might want to do this block of the month please let us know and we will put you on the interest list. When we get the price figured out, we will call each person on the list and verify if they are still interested.
We got in this new handy dandy tool called a "Cutterpillar" that we are so excited to tell you about!
This works great for more than just quilters too! Any drawers or painters are sure to love this awesome tool.
If there is a technique that you are wanting to learn, please let us know and we'll arrange a class. Without feedback from you, we don't know what our customers want.
