The last week of summer

We'll it's finally here, the last week of summer, DH wants more summer, more heat, he loves the heat, I'm ready for some nice fall days. I actually like all the seasons, I love summer because I love being in water, lake, pool or whatever has water. I love fall because it has the best show of color, driving home and seeing the colors displayed out in front of me, just like a quilt, now I need to make a fall quilt. I love winter, well maybe not love, but I do like the chilly (notice I didn't say cold) days. I love spring for color is starting to come around again. The problem with all of this is that no one season last long enough and this makes the years fly by.

I'm so excited, I've come up with an idea for an upcoming stash busters class and it involves another Christmas present, wahooo. I love class projects that turn into Christmas presents.

Before I run I need to mention that today is our 13th wedding anniversary, so hugs and kisses to the best man in the world.
Happy Quilting.

Another Trip

Well I'm off on another trip, this one down to North Carolina to help my mother with her double knee replacement recovery. I just happen to be in NC when the latest storm decided to roll through, funny thing is Hanna was a smallish storm, we're getting wind but up in Virginia, Andrew and the girls are having one heck of a rain storm, they're getting more from the store then we are, yikes.

I've been doing lots of reading in my trade magazines and online and my head is overflowing with ideas and changes. We're really gonna shake things up at KAQ.

I heard through the grapevine that another quilt shop in my area described KAQ as Country Bright. I don't know that I would have pegged us as Country Bright, or actually Country anything, but after walking around the store I can see how someone might come up with that description. We're located in a building that's over 100 years old, yep, older then me, and I've got the floors painted periwinkle and we do have some country type prints, but then we also have the full line of Mark Lipinski's Califon in the store, kind of crazy, but this other shop owner may have just given me a new tag line, Kelly Ann's Quilting your home town Country Bright quilt shop...what do ya think?
Happy Quilting
