February morning

I awoke this morning with the dread of winter  weather…instead of the predicted snowy, icy mix, the fog burned off early and the sun was making an appearance.  The result…a beautiful February morning and as Penny says a perfect doggy day.  That means a walk at lunch and a little more removal of large snow piles at the end of our driveway.

      Back again…  Penny and I had our noon walk and some snow was shoveled around the mail box.  I looked for early signs of spring but alas, there were no signs to be found. Instead we saw fallen leaves from October, sand and salt on the road, and a lot of puddles for Penny to walk through.  So the groundhog was right.  The good news is spring never left our shop.  Tulips, iris, leaves, and vines fill our fabric bolts.  Easter, Mother’s Day, Graduation, and Weddings are already in the works for a lot of quilters and sewists.  And Shop Hop will be here before we know it.  It starts on April 19th.

      Check our class calendar for March and April.   We have scheduled a Begin Sew class for the newbie sewist on Friday, March 2, from 5-9 pm.  We will make a strip pillow.  We are happy to help you understand the workings of your sewing machine.  Begin Sew II is scheduled for Friday, April 5 from 5-9 pm.  This class is for the sewist who can sew but still feels like a beginner.  We will make the Flower Sac Bag by Nellie’s Needle works.
