We are closed today, but will resume our normal hours at 10 am on September 7th.

I'm using my day off to plant fall vegetables and work on my appliqued scallops today: itty bitty lettuce seeds and itty bitty applique pins! My house quilt is almost finished!!!! You can see some of the blocks on our flickr site. I love checking UFOs off my list!

We have extended our SALE one more week!

Have a wonderful day! Enjoy this glorious weather and take your handwork outside too.
