Just for fun!

I have been working on the Little Miss Shabby Birdie Stitches BOM and I have managed to keep up!  Here are pictures of my progress so far.

I decided to use the group Fresh Flowers by Moda.  I picked my floss colors from the fabrics and they are a little brighter than the original.  I kept with the gray background and it seems to make the colors pop.




This is one of two of my projects that are not designated for the shop and I am absolutely loving it.  (The other being the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt Class being run by Sarah here at the shop.  I'm not doing such good job keeping up with that one! ;-) )

My first blog post....

I have been wanting to create a blog for the shop for some time now and it's finally done!  I can't wait to be able to share pictures of all the cool things going on at the shop as well as new arrivals.

We have gotten lots of new fabric in the last few weeks.  This is Lilac Hill by Moda fabrics.  I couldn't wait to get started with it and will have a sample done up soon to share.

We have also gotten new yarns in.  I don't know if you can see in the picture but the yarn has little sequins throughout.  It is going to be used in a knit tank top that we will be having a class on April 14 & 28th.

I definitely can tell I need to work on my photography skills.......
