The snow is melting so fast that the water has no place to go. Large pools of water are everywhere. However, after the snow has gone, my bare yard will be a soggy quagmire. This year we bring in the top soil after doing the final grading, finish the block wall around the flowers, then seed. My own private park will return.
ALERT! Spring Cleaning Sale
has been postponed since we really can't see anyway that the area will be passable in time for the sale. We are looking at mid June or so.
Keep in mind that we will still have the following prices at that time.
All regular fabric will be 40% off, and if you take all on the bolt, it will be 50% off. Batiks will be $8 a yard.
See you soon.

WOW! Who would have thought so many would be interested. We are still practicing safe guidelines, but you are welcome to come in and check out what we're putting together.
For any of you still wishing to participate, you may still pick up the patterns and blocks. Fabric requirements available. Generals' Wives will be our block of the month beginning in January. Sign ups begin now with a $25 sign up fee and $5 a month for the main blocks.
This is block two of General's Wives. It displays some of the more intricate piecing.
Here is block four. This was an easy block with only a few pieces.
This was a Deb Heatherly pattern from the Grids Girls group on Facebook. Anyone may sign up. There is no fee and no information is gathered--a novelty. She has numerous projects and it's a great group of quilters. You can ask questions when problems arise, ask others' opinions on your fabric choices and show your most recent block or step.
She makes it very simple, but you always come out with a quilt that looks like it was very difficult. You will amaze your friends. Just search for QuiltsforU on Facebook and I will be happy to invite you to join.
