KNOTTY GIRLS HAVE A GOOD TIME

Does this cute little snowman make you feel cooler?  It is a BOM at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  tHE Knotty Girls Stitching Bee met last night at the shop and a fun time was had by all.  I’ll show you a picture of that later.  It has been a while since I was at the shop and I found several cute items I wanted to share with you.  Like the above snowman.  
And this adorable kitten wallhanging.  Kits are available at the shop.
And this bouquet of flowers made of fabric and a bobbin. 
 This is a close up of one of the flowers.  I would love to have a bouquet of these for my dining room table.  They have long stems for placing in a vase, or you can detach the stem and pin a flower to your clothing (pin is on the back).  The flowers are also on sale at the shop.


Now I will show you why the Knotty Girls had so much fun…We had FOOD!  Everyone brought a dish to pass and as you can see, we had lots to eat.  It is so much fun to try new recipes and new wines (yes, those are wine bottles on the table.  Why do you think we’re called Knotty (naughty) Girls?)   Maggie brought Quinoa, which was wonderful!  Quinoa is a grain-like crop that has marvelous nutritional properties.  So you see, we’re not all that naughty.
 
A FEW ITEMS OF INTEREST:

Christmas in July Sale continues at the shop through the end of the month. All Christmas fabrics, Christmas patterns and Christmas books are 20% off.

I got your comment and cannot find a problem. When I click on the rooster it goes right to the pattern. I know someone else had a problem with another pattern and she later told me the problem with with her computer. I'm so sorry about this. If you would like me to email you the pattern, send me another comment with your return email address. Caroll
