Hello 2016

It seems like the days fly by and here we are already half way through January. As some of you may know I am an Accuquilt Retailer so I thought I would share with all my quilting friends the following link. It is the video version of So God Made a Quilter. It is copyrighted by Accuquilt so if you wish to share please respect the copyright. Enjoy as it describes so many of us so well. So God Made A Quilter

On the sewing front there hasn't been much going on here since it has been so cold I can't get the heat high enough to be able to sit and sew. We are expecting 1-3" of snow over night tonight and another storm front coming in over Saturday. Hope you all are staying safe and warm. Hopefully, I will have some progress to show soon.

What I am Thankful for and a Christmas Joke

Some of you may have visited the Superior Threads website. When Bob does the newsletter he includes a joke. I thought I'd share with you his latest joke since this is the season to be thankful for what we have and what we can afford to give to others.

Bob's Superior Joke
One Christmas, a mother decided she wasn't going to pester her children to send thank-you notes for the gifts they received. Consequently, the children's grandmother never received any thanks for the Christmas checks she sent to the grandchildren.
The very next Christmas, all the grandchildren stopped by, in person, to thank their grandmother for her check.
When asked by a friend what caused this change in behavior, the grandmother replied, "Simple. This year I didn't sign the checks."

I am thankful to have a warm home, food on the table, a husband who loves me and friends to spend time with. These are just a few things I am thankful for in my life. What are you thankful for this year?

Accuquilt Projects


With my customer's permission I thought I'd show you a couple of things she made using her Accuquilt Go and Go dies. The turkey placemat she used the Dresden Plate Die and the Christmas Accessories Die to make them. The Table Runner is her original pattern which you can find on her website . Look in store and then under patterns.
If you own an Accuquilt have you made anything with it? Let us see your projects.
