Finally....an update!


I'm sorry my lack of presence on this site. I wish I had a great excuse. I really meant to post right after quilt market in November....but the month just flew by!  To top it off....Christmas is almost here. There is quite a bit of prep work needed for this holiday. Luckily there are plenty of sweet memories of Thanksgiving to carry me through the hustle and bustle of the season. The good thing about Christmas is it always comes whether we're ready or not.


Here's a glimpse of our fourth and last Loose Feather pattern for the year 2012. It should be in your stores around Christmas time.

Look for a free pattern soon....there was one we made for the booklet but due to lack of space we couldn't include it. Barb and I decided to offer it on the blog as a free pattern.

Our web-site is getting a makeover. Hopefully there will be something to show there soon!

Until later,

Alma
