WHO READS TO YOU?

I think this is so precious, I had to show it you.  My daughter took her four-year-old grandson (my great grandson)  to visit my 96-year-old mom.  While there, Carter read to his great great grandmother.  Isn't this cute?  He's just learning to read and really puts his all into it.  I think this picture should be used as an ad for reading, or for books.  You are never too old to enjoy reading or being read to. 

UP COMING EVENTS AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP:
  • 7th ANNUAL SPRING FLING SHOP HOP, March 28th through April 5th.  Six west Michigan shops are included with giveaways at each shop.  Passports can be purchased for $5 at any shop.  Visit the shop to sign up for a drawing and receive a free pattern.  At the end of the shop hop there will be a drawing for a sewing machine from completed passports.  Participating shops are:  Attic Window Quilt Shop; Calico Creations (South Haven); Custom Quilts Unlimited (Fennville); Pressing Matters Quilt Shoppe (Holland); Queen Bee Quilt Shoppe (Grand Rapids); So South Haven (South Haven). 
  • THE QUILTER’S ROAD TRIP is April.  12 Shops are participating.  Passports are $5.  Each shop chose a different month for its wallhanging.  Chris chose January because she loves snowmen.  Secretly she’s afraid we’ll all be made at her for choosing snowmen since we are so sick of snow here in Michigan.  I don’t think she needs to worry because that snowman is so darn cute!  Patterns and kits are available for purchase.
ON ANOTHER NOTE:  This should put you in the mood for spring (as if you aren’t all ready).  Sew Mama Sew has a flora spring bird that should be of special interest to those of you who like to work in wool and make all those beautiful decorative stitches. 

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
