GETTING READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS



I love the crisp winter feel this pillow gives to my living room. This foundation pieced snowflake with its sharp points gave me the precision piecing look I wanted. It is my adaptation of the Snowflakes pattern from the book House Party by Sue Hunt. You can get the book at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

Mark your calaendar now for CHRISTMAS CRAFT DAY, SATURDAY, Nov 27 from 9 a.m.—5 p.m. Class is FREE. Kits are $5—$10. We are working on some neat Christmas gift ideas. Stop in at the store that week and see the projects

The WHIMSICAL NORTH POLE BOM is now up in the shop. The books are here and starting Jan. 3, you can stop in anytime each month and pick up a $5 kit to complete a block of the month. There is no class, so sign up before Jan. 1 and receive a special discount on the book.

Threads of Conversation has a tutorial for a very easy table runner.


Stay Positive!

The craft day sounds like a lot of fun. I wish I would be in town. We're going to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving. Shoot! I was going to ask you how to sign up!
