Wordless Wednesday...Sort of...

Shaken not Stirred

Pat Sloan came to Visit

Thought I'd share some snapshots from the Pat Sloan book signing the store held a couple of weeks ago.  We lined the classroom with Pat's quilts and Pat did what she does best, a  quick show and tell then spent the next several hours visiting and signing books, I'm thinking sooner or later she's gonna need to get a rubber stamp for her signature cause her hand is gonna just wear out.






Lots of fun was had by all...but don't fret if you missed on this round of fun with Pat she'll be back..
Until Next Time

Old Towns...

Do you live in or by an "Old Town"?  You know what I mean, it's the historic part of a small town that use to be the center of commerce, there's normally a court house, a few church steeples and hopefully a street lined with thriving independent business'.


I'm lucky in that Kelly Ann's Quilting is located in such a town, Old Town Warrenton.  I've recently had the opportunity to visit the Old Town section of Charlottesville Virginia that has a thriving section that is closed to vehicle traffic and loaded, and I mean loaded with shops and restaurants and people..tons and tons of people.  Just yesterday I was in Old Town Fredericksburg Virginia, and while it was lined with lots of retail shops and some interesting places to eat I was totally surprised to see so many places closed on Mondays.

Having a business in an "old town" I'm always looking for ways to enhance someones visit to "my town" by seeing what others have to offer or…

Doorways...

I have a thing for doors and gates and grates and windows...lining our front hallway we have some great doorway and gate photos from our trip to New Mexico.  Thought I'd share some pictures that I found in my camera...and surprise...doors...





so many doorways to explore...can't wait to grab my camera and start stalkingspying snapping some great shots...

August...Again

I was gonna put out a missing month notice vs a missing persons notice but then I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only one out there that misplaced July.  Ya know how at the first of the year you make promises or resolutions to change something, to sew more,  to be nicer to the person that pulls out in front of you while your driving 55mph...so anyway at the beginning of July I made list and while it was a mental list it was still a list, any guess on how many of the things on my list got done???  

Okay, enough about me, now lets check in with everyone that's doing the two color quilt challenge...so has anyone started it?  finished?  I can't wait to hear how everyone is doing...and remember you have until December 31st...and it's not to late to jump on board with all the fun.
Until Next Time
