...........since I last posted....over 2 months.  Time really flies and I have had some major changes in my life and none of them good. Just 2 months ago I was loving my life and everything about it and then--- WHAM...the bottom fell right out from under me. Hopefully "GOD works in mysterious ways" will hold true in my case.

Having a busy Saturday today in the shop.
It's taking me 4 hours to get this post done.

I have 2 spots left for my LOCKERHOOKING CLASS this Monday evening the13th.
Time is 5-9.
The cost is $30 and includes the supply kit.
All you need is fabrics to match your decor or room or?
You will need 6 different fabrics in red OR blue OR any color cut into 1 1/2" x width of fabric strips. You will need 6 or 7 strips from each fabric.
You will also need 8 or 9 strips cut 1 to 1 1/4" x width of fabric strips from your border fabric.
For example, I used 6 different red fabrics and made my border black.
This cute Americana doll waiting to go home with someone this summer.

I finally finished this large star quilt. It is a Country Threads pattern that I made a few years ago using all homespuns. The one thing I did different is I made the backgrond behind the star light and the star is dark.
The pattern picture shows the background dark and the star light.

This is a stitchery that is my new motto. I want to "SIMPLIFY". I am going thru all my stuff and am listing many many things on my ETSY store and I am considering opening an Ebay store just to get rid of it all. I have been a collector of many many things over the years and I am done with moving and cleaning and rearranging and moving again.

Well, June 14th is Flag Day and my sale starts in the shop on Monday the 13th.
I am wanting to make more room in the shop. As of right now I could not move another thing in. My storeroom in the back of the shop is stacked with boxes of stuff that needs to come out front.
I hope everyone enjoys their summer.
Have a lot of BBQ's.
Do a lot of weeding and planting.
Stay cool,
