A "Lucy" Update

Well, it's been about two months now that our little Lucy came to be our "Quilt Shop Dog."  She has made sooooo many friends!  She just loves to greet everyone and maybe give a few puppy kisses.  I have been working hard on  teaching her a few manners.  When it's quiet in the shop and someone comes in, she gets a little barky.  We are working on breaking the habit.  She's so smart and stubborn though, but, I think we are making progress.  This cold snap has set us back a little bit on potty training.  Take her out and she looks at you like "Are You Nuts!!!"  I guess I would object a bit as well.  Over all, she has been lots of fun to have in the shop.  Such a cuddly, sweet little girl.  Here she is showing of her new winter sweater. Need a little love and puppy kisses?  Stop by.

Saturday Is Santa's Workshop Demo Day

 Boy, O Boy! Is it chilly out!!!  For me, It makes me want to cozy up and make lots of fun gifts for my family and friends!  Put a pot of soup on to make the house smell  good, put an old movie on the tube (It's a Wonderful Life) and create!  Now That's Christmas to me!!! So on Saturday, December 7th, all day we will be showing demos on some fun, EASY gift projects for everyone on your list.  Many of the projects are easy enough for kid to make. (With some supervision) It's nice to get the kids involved with hand made gifts. 
The Folded Christmas Tree Napkins are still a big hit!  EVERYONE loves them.  Use the pattern from the kits to use up all your Christmas fabric scrapes.  Then there is Aunt Mary's Quick Pot Holders.  They make a great hostess gift. They only take a quarter yard of fabric and some insulated batting.  Everyone can use new pot holders!
Of course there is the perfect gift for just about anyone. A new pillowcase!!  My kids are very grown up, and still need a new one every year for Christmas. (And their birthday.... etc)  They really make a great gift at any time of year.  When you learn how easy they are, they will be your go to gift for any occasion.  Well, that's not all! We will be showing more great, easy projects. So don't miss out!  Stop by!
