Another Husker victory and now onto the Big X11 conference. It seems like the stars are aligned for the Huskers. We aren’t supposed to look forward but October 17th Texas game is asterisked on my calendar. Have you visited  It’s worth a look and register to win free tickets to the game. In the meantime, I’m going to start on some Husker flannel robes for my nephews for Christmas.

Marcia and I have been in school and are overwhelmed with information on thread. WE are in St. George, Utah at The Superior Thread School of Threadology. Finally, a class that has immediate application! St. George is in the southwest part of Utah near the entrance of Zion National Park. It’s breathtaking to see the National Park at this time of year. So much of our fabric appears to be inspired by the natural beauty of our surroundings. Take a closer look at Northcott’s Stonehenge line called “Colorado”.

We will see you this weekend.

Hi! Dee and I are welcoming Fall with open arms. We love the cooler evenings and the crisp mornings. A calming routine develops at this time of year as daylight shortens. Even Penny and Abby (our dogs) are ready for a pre bedtime nap instead of a romp in the yard. And there is more time to read and sew as summer fades.

We are attending the Superior Thread School of Threadology in St. George, Utah this week Some of those pesky thread questions may finally be answered after this three day course. We have our notebooks and pens ready to go as well as our sewing basket and sewing machine. And we are driving through some of the most beautiful areas of the country to reach St. George. So next weekend we will be ready for a pop quiz from you about threads.

Also next weekend Sew Pink represents I Love Sewing at the Komen Race for the Cure. The Komen shirts are in the store. I’m hoping to win the Ford Fiesta shown on the Komen Race for the Cure website. It’s a brilliant shade of pink, don’t you think!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. And P. S., don’t forget Vintage Notions Club meets for its first meeting on Monday at 1:00 pm.
