More Great New Fabric

I just got a really fun fabric line in from Red Rooster. It's called "Paisley Party" Those gals from Red Rooster have out done themselves this time! I just love this line of fabric. I made this quilt. It was really fun.
Here is the book that the quilt came from. It's the cover quilt. Opps!!! I did it again! you have to turn your head! Sorry!!! Anyway this is one from Atkinson Designs. The patterns are always sooo easy to understand, and you can make them from baby to king size.

This is such a fun line of fabric. I got the whole line in, so this is just a part of it. The colors make me smile. I always feel like that is one of the top priority's for any fabric! It makes the project soooo much more fun.

A Fun Time Was Had By All

Our week end with marylou has come to an end. Everyone had such a good time. I have had several e-mails telling me they want her to come back for another class. Maybe in the spring. Here she is with a basket on her head. It would make such a nice hat. She's such a good sport! Our next big teacher will be Jane Sassaman, in November. Check it out and sign up. You wont be disappointed!
Here is a picture of the class with Marylou in the middle.

This is one of the houses that was built in class. I think this one belongs to Sheryl. I can't wait to see it when she has all the story done.

Here's my friend Linda. She has taken classes with Marylou several times. She's working on a new story quilt and got quite far in class. It's got to be a good story if it has a flying pig!

Fall is here

Pretty flowers from a friend. Thanks! I love dalias. They look like they have been hand painted. Mother nature loves color too!!!

Aunt Mary's is getting a new paint job. If you stop by while the trucks are here, just park and come in or come in the back door.

Hasn't is been just a glorious fall so far? Here are the trees along the side of the building. The tree in the forground always starts turning before the others. I love fall! these trees will be so beautifull in a few weeks.

Stitchery Club is here!

Every second Friday of each month the "Stitchery Club" meets at Aunt Mary's. This group just loves to do "Red Work" or any kind of embroidery. It's a great time to come in, order a mocha, sit, relax and be with some other great gals that love stitchery.

It's always fun to see what someone has done. Show and tell is a highlight! They would just love to have you join them.

Applique Society Meets at Aunt Mary's

The Second Wednesday of each month the "Applique society" group takes over the classroom. Applique society is a national group that is interested in sharing and celebrating the art of applique. The chapter that meets here is quit new. We have been meeting for only four months now, but we have lots of members all ready. We meet from 4 in the afternoon to around 7 in the evening. We work on out projects and have "show and tell" (That's always fun) Following show and tell we have a great potluck dinner. The food has been really fabulous! We would love to have you join us!
Here's my friends Leanne and Cheryl, busy sharing their projects and enjoying catching up.

These three look like trouble! You can be sure to have a good time if you sit next to them!

A Finished Qult

In Case anybody ever wonders what I do with my Days off. Well, yesterday I finished quilting this quilt, and got the binding on it. It always feels soooooo good to finish something. But, then I miss having something in my hands at night and I have to start something else! This was a really fun little quilt I did out of the book "Simple Seasons."It's got some great projects in it I enjoyed doing this one. Applique makes me happy. Look for my class on applique in my class schedule. We can get you addicted too.
