Our NEW Building, and a BIG SALE Coming!

Well- there is just SO MUCH going on here!! Did I mention to you that we bought a building for our business??? I put it in a newsletter a while back, but I’ve been so busy that blogging has been pushed to the back burner…. so if you’re not receiving my newsletters you may not… Keep reading…

In the studio this week…

Folks, a mere 5 days ago, it was 66 degrees and sunny. Today, I sit writing this from my husband’s office because we are in the midst of an ice storm that took out the power at our house…. lots and lots of outages being reported, so who knows when our power will be restored…. Keep reading…

Summer is just a-flyin’ by, isn’t it? (For our friends in the southern hemisphere, I’m sure you are happy to be approaching winter’s end…)  Next week, we will be spending some time at the beach with the kids before they go back to college (older daughter is in grad school, younger daughter will be a… Keep reading…

In the studio this week…

In the studio this week… lots of odds & ends… Last year, for my Block of the Month, I made 3 completed quilts with each of the different techniques (applique, embroidery, piecing only). This time around, I was lucky to just get the appliqued quilt done! But I decided that I would just start working… Keep reading…

Our area was forecasted to get 18-24″ over the weekend, but I think we ended up with about 14″. It’s hard to say because there were very heavy winds (the storm was… Keep reading…

A trip to the beach

We spent all of last week at the beach…. the kids were all there, and the in-laws. We were there for my birthday, and we went out to a nice dinner at a seafood restaurant (you have to have seafood when you’re at the beach!!) We did some cooking, believe it or not (more about… Keep reading…

Visit to the County Fair

I love the county fair and I look forward to it every year… I love the animals and the displays… and the food, ha ha. You may be surprised to find out that I live in New Jersey- and we have a wonderful county fair (and we even have a real rodeo!) I am really… Keep reading…

In the studio (and garden) today…

The saga of our poor tree continues. Remember last week I showed you the damage that the big storm did to our 100+ year old sycamore tree? Well, the tree trimmers came and… took care of things. They cut almost everything out of the tree- way more than we thought that they would (and much… Keep reading…
