Spring has arrived along with another snow storm. I am watching my youngest Springer running up the snow bank and onto the roof of the woodshop. She has been playing on the roof for the past two days.
I was thrilled to have a few gals from Fairbanks come in to visit. They had flown in for a weekend of quilting with local friends, I hope to see what they do with their fabric choices.
We are still planning on a spring sale. It may be late spring at this rate, No snow has melted. In fact my husband is shoveling off the roof as I write this. Even after it melts, I will have to wait for the ground to dry enough to support a vehicle.
Nancy Mathew has a new class going. She is making a large carryon that will hold your handbag, as well as other items since it has numerous cubbies.
Give her a call at 907-953-2791
See you soon.
