Blender fabrics are those great pieces that bring life to your focus fabrics. Several beautiful pieces are already here such as tone on tone prints with dragonflies, swirls and fabrics which look like a woven texture.
Machine embroidery was a huge part of Quilt Market. We attended classes and learned many helpful hints on hooping, found new designs including the cutest new "in the hoop" mug mat pattern of fox, raccoon, owl and bunny. You can use these designs for machine applique also. We learned how to do edge to edge quilting on your quilts with your embroidery machine and the CD of designs comes with a very informative book. The nicest new patterns for "in the hoop" greeting card designs are ordered and we are so excited about them. They are fun and quick and we will be embroidering those just as soon as they arrive!
Hand embroidery was everywhere and no wonder; it is so portable, relaxing and easily goes with you whenever you travel. Pick up a fun new kit or select a pattern. Put together a small tote with your embroidery projects that can be grabbed on your way out the door. Set a small basket containing your embroidery projects next to your favorite chair making it convenient to relax and stitch a bit here and there.
The newest Opal sock yarns have been ordered. Watch for their arrival. You will love the colors and patterns and they are coming in 3 different weights of yarns; something for everyone and every project!
Check out the cutest new fabric collection for kids. The panel is a picture of fluffy sheep playing with balloons. The coordinates are curly, swirly designs and a cute bumble bee print. The large play mat panel features a large cuddly, lovable sheep. We finished the model with an extra thick puffy batting and the machine quilting really brings out the sheep's wooly curls.
Quilt stencils provide easy to use designs that can really enhance your quilt. We have lots of new ones including borders and corners, blocks of all sizes, feathers, flowers, geometrics, kids designs and more.
New novelty fabrics include prints of stones, pine cones, Halloween prints, including glow in the dark, leaves, grasses, florals and more.
New fabrics and patterns mean new models! When in, be sure to check out the new hedgehog potholder, the new 60 degree Christmas table runner, a fun summer table runner, a new knitting tote made with "knit stitch" print fabric and the cutest sheep appliques, 2 new aprons from panels and more!

We have had warm and sunny days. It seems we almost went from snow to spring overnight! The trillium, violets and marsh marigolds are all blooming. The robins are singing, the hummingbirds are zooming here and there, large flocks of geese can be heard flying over and the herons and ducks are enjoying the open water. Soon the wild iris and the lady slippers will be blooming. I especially love the new leaves in the spring. There are so many beautiful shades of green in the buds and young leaves. Take the time to notice just how many colors of green you see!
Spring changes to summer so very quickly; be sure to get out and enjoy every minute of it!
