|I'm sure you've all see the news about the damage being caused by Hurricane Ida. Let's all send our thoughts and prayers to those people who have been impacted. It's hard to believe that it's been 16 years to the day since Hurricane Katrina. It's amazing to see the resilience of the American people.
|I am excited to report that the panel for Astral Vision has arrived.
However....I'm still waiting on 2 of the fabrics needed for the kits (the light color in the stars and the blue border print, although we have another print that will work for the border). If you need just the panel and the northern lights prints, please stop in and see us.
I'm very excited about getting the Holiday Collection from Moda (it's not year yet but I'm expecting them soon) that can be seen in the Fat Quarter Shop's Mystery Bats & Boos Quilt. I think this is the cutest quilt and it has a fun little cross-stitch project you can do, too. Check out the first video on YouTube here.
If you haven't seen the Scarlet Stitches & White Linen quilt, you gotta stop in the store. Lonny did a fabulous job - the picture really doesn't do it justice; it's so much more impressive in person. We have the kit all ready for you take on this amazing project.
The accessory for the month of September is the Circular Attachment. This is a fun tool that makes specialty stitches look like full-on embroidery. It's so much fun. Jan and I made some samples last week - come in a check them out.
