Piece O Cake does it again!

OK, By now everyone knows I LOVE APPLIQUE!!! Here's a new book from the girls at Piece O Cake. Becky and Linda are TOPS. I have already started a project from this book. I enjoy their designs, and their techniques. I teach my beginning applique class directly from one of their other books. This book is about loosening up and playing a little bit. Hmm. Where have I heard that before?

It was 109 at my house yesterday!!! That's H.E. double hockey sticks hot!!! I was soooo glad to get back to work. Here is what the thermostat says here. MMMMMM!!!! I can always share the cool with you. come on by. Bring your stuff and sew. The classroom is empty. I would love the company. The last time it was this slow was last December when we had all the ice and snow. Be careful what you wish for!!!

Applique is Fun!!!

I love Applique! I teach a class that is once a month for six months. It's one of my favorite classes to teach. I love getting others as addicted as I am. We make a great sampler quilt from a "Piece O Cake" book, and learn new techniques each month. This is Gail. She's really doing great! This class will be offered again, starting in the fall.

Here's one of Marla's blocks. Isn't it pretty? I can't wait to see the blocks all together.

Have you tried one of our "Jet Tea" Smoothies? They are getting to be quite popular here at Aunt Mary's espresso Bar.
They are icy and smooth and just hit the spot on these hot day's. The Peach flavor has been the most popular, but we have six flavors to choose from. Very Cherry, Strawberry Bomb, Wild Berry, Extreme Peach, Sour Apple, and Caribbean Colada.
So next time your hot and need some coolness. Aunt Mary's Catina is air conditioned and OPEN.
Oh, and here's a little hint....... check the coupon on Aunt Mary's web site.

Back From Vacation

I"M BACK! Vacation was great! I didn't get to go to the Oregon Coast. My husband had too much work to do. Oh Well. It was so nice to be home for a while. Here at the shop Pat got lots and lots of great stuff in. It's so much fun to come back to a "new" looking shop. This line from Michael Miller is Sooooo Nice. I just love the fairies on it.
Here's a close up of the fairies. Aren't they sweet?

This is such a great little line from Timeless Treasures. Black and White and LIME GREEN! Yummy!!!!

Christmas fabrics are arriving almost every day. It's hard to believe it's just around the corner already. Yep you better get going and be ahead this year. (Humbug!)

Here comes Santa Clause! I just love this one, It's from Alexander Henry of course!!

Fall is my favorite time of the year. We are starting to get some great fall color here at Aunt Mary's So, anyway that's just a few of the new things. I'm glad to be back and get to play in the fun fabric.

I'm Off!!!

Well, everyone, I'm tired! Shop Hop was a great success! We had fun!!! But If I don't get away for a while, I don't think anyone will like me for long. Sooo I'm off for a few weeks. I think the Oregon Coast is calling me. I'll be back soon! Thanks!!!! Don't forget to stop by the shop and make sure everything is going well without me. Pat will be great. She may even give you a good deal? You never know.
