Wedding Star

I got together with my son Doug and his fiance Hayley last week to select a pattern for a wedding quilt. We spent some time looking at patterns I'd selected as possibilities. I wanted to get an idea of what colors they like and what kinds of patterns appealed to them. We ended looking at Judy Niemeyer's web site and when Hayley saw the Wedding Star, she knew that was the one.

Wow, what a fun project this will be! I starting selecting batiks in gradations. I still have lots more to pick, but here's the beginning.

The wedding's in July. I think I'll be busy!

Too Many Batiks?????

Is it possible to have too many batiks? Shelly and I pulled 60 bolts from the batik colorwall today to make room for all the great recent arrivals. Those 60 bolts are in the half-price area now. We all did a bit of shopping as we moved the bolts upstairs but there's still lots to choose from. Stop in soon to see the selection - they won't last long.......

New Years Resolutions

Do you ever look at those beautiful photos of sewing rooms in magazines and books and feel jealous? I do! Oh, to have all that space and everything in its place.
The best part about not completing your new years resolutions is that you can use the same ones again. So this year I will try again to conquer the sewing room mess. OK, this photo was taken last year and nothing much has changed. If fact, it may be worse. I will try again. But maybe not until I finish this next project I'm working on.
