Lots Going On

I know the last several post have been wordless and I know some of you may find it hard to believe but at the time I really couldn't think of what to write, there was so much going on that I think if I started typing out the words it would be like reading hieroglyphs...just a bunch of jumbled words....maybe I should have written something out then we could all play word jumble...that would have been a hoot.

Well...June is behind us and I'm still wondering where it went, as a matter of fact I'm wondering what happen to the time since I was in Minnesota for Quilt Market.  We did take a vacation, yes a real vacation to Lake Gaston with the girls, a quick trip to North Carolina to visit the family...but still there were a bunch of days that I could have written a note, or something...but jeeze I couldn't figure out what to say...yep, I know hard to believe...but...
I'M BACK
There's so much to say that my keyboard is on fire I'm typing so fast...Kelly Ann's Quilting will be a happening place this summer...We're starting a Debbie Caffrey Mystery Series July 1st and it's free, just need to stop in and sign up...sorry no mail outs available on this one, I'd show ya a picture but...well you know...it's a MYSTERY!   

We also have a pattern of the month, Twas The Night Before Christmas by Helen Stubbings




How stinkin' cute is this???   This is like a Block of the Month except no fabric, but it's real scrappy and you'll have a blast doing the redwork, or bluework, or greenwork...any color you decide...Pam Ruffner did the shop sample using the varigated red Aurifil 12wt.  This one we can offer through the mail...just give the store a call, 540-341-8890.

Wait...I'm not done with the happenings....We're doing a Summer Show and Tell...bring in any of your finished quilts, bags, embroidery work, let us take a picture and enter to win a $50.00 store credit...now that's incentive to get those UFO's done this summer. 

What...you thought I was done...nope...at least one more thing...do you love working with 30's reproductions?  A big fan of Aunt Grace from Judie Rothermel?  Coming soon....a six month Block of the Month featuring, exclusive to Quilt Shops,  Aunt Grace Circle of Friends...

Is this not the prettiest quilt??  We're still waiting on details from the pattern designers but once that comes in we'll be announcing all the details in our newsletter and on our Facebook page but we are taking pre-sign ups so if your interested drop me an email or give the store a call and get your name on the list.

Let me see...what else....on the home front it looks like we'll be home for most of July and finally get some yard work caught up.  The weather has been brutal and the heat of July and August hasn't even arrived.  But today the humidity has broken and we can enjoy a nice cool morning with the windows open and the girls are lovin' it...

I'll try and not wait too long before I do another post...but until I do...
stay cool...
keep quilting...
and we'll see y'all around the monkey farm...

  1. Wow you are a happen "monkey" and your QS is rocking! Kim and I are off on another adventure today - my dawgs are barking after standing and teaching for three days, so I don't know how much fun I will be.... I love all that you have going on at your shop. Stay cool.
