Wow

Where did July go? You know the exact moment when you realize that half the year is over and you've not started your Christmas presents yet, yep, that's it, it just hit me. But, and here's the good part, Jackie and I have been sharing the duties with Stash Busters this year, one month she does a sample the next me, well, to date I have 5 samples done, which in turn means I could have 5 potential Christmas Presents, this is where I go, WAHOOOOOOO or WOOTWOOT....now I just need to figure out what goes to who.

I'll be working on the August Stash Busters this weekend and I'm so excited, some are okay and some are, are you ready for this, a WAHOOOO or a WOOTWOOT, I'm so into WOOTWOOT now I may be using that for awhile. Once I'm done with Stashbusters I'll share with everyone where I've found some of the greatest patterns, don't want to give to much away.

For those of you that know we sell Husqvarna Viking sewing machines. The daily question I get is which one do you own, my standard answer is all of them, heheheheh. To tell you the truth I'm really in love with the Sapphire 870 Quilt, if you've not placed you hands on one go to your closest independent dealer and ask to put your hands one. The 10 inch arm is a quilters dream. I have a gammill long arm and I still use the 870 to quilt some of my pieces. Talk about thread painting, wootwoot, it's amazing. I'll be quilting a table runner on the 870 tomorrow and hopefully finishing up cutting my August Stash Buster, o' did I mention that I'll also be working the store with just one other person, can you say "caffeine".
happy quilting

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind

Weather

Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
