How To Make A Snowman
Pages 3 and 4
Adding binding my new favorite way!
I recently saw this on Pinterest. I pinned it. I shared it. And now, I tried it. And guess what? It WORKS! The binding isn’t all over the floor. It doesn’t get tangled. It feeds smoothly.
Thank you to those of you who have written to ask where my posts have been. The short answer is – I’ve been busy. The long answer is – I’ve been busy. But I’ll post when I can.
I chuckle at the end of each day. The days I think I’ll be busy – because the sun is shining, or because it’s Saturday (or some other day that was busy last week) – end up being slow. The days I am POSITIVE I won’t have one customer – because it’s snowing like crazy, because the roads are bad, because it’s freezing cold – end up being my best days. It just goes to show, you can’t predict retail!
It’s all good, though. As long as we sell enough product to pay the bills and bring in new product, we’ve done what we’re there to do. Right?
Just a reminder – River Place Quilt & Sew WILL BE CLOSED from March 8 through March 18. I will be ON VACATION! Please be sure to stock up before the end of the day on Thursday, March 7, so you won’t have to shop elsewhere while the store is closed.
Our Mystery Quilt class is FULL. Thank you to all of you who registered. I look forward to seeing you Saturday, March 2 – it’s going to be a wonderful, fun day!
A few weeks ago, some of the members of the Heartfelt Creations Quilt Guild went to Memories Manor, here in St. Clair, for a weekend of sewing, laughing, and pampering. Here are photos of some of the projects we saw that weekend.
This is a project Kelly Mertz was working on. I will never, ever, ever put this quilt together!
Kelley Roebke made this top. The wool was appliqued by hand!
This is our retreat group – 2013, along with Jan Zimmer, owner of Memories Manor. Jan knows how to treat her guests, and to show our appreciation, we put this quilt together for her.
Diane McCallum worked on these blocks. This, I might do some day.
