We certainly did FALL into Fall….

November 01, 2014

November 1st already….

Fall is flying by, on the way to work this morning Suzie and I heard our first Christmas music on the radio station we listen to on our commute back and forth.  We could not believe it.  While I do not advocate any kind of Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving, it it all too true that December 25, will come all too quickly….

The shop has been bustling with customers, new fabrics, new notions, new sewing machines, classes and events. We can hardly catch our breath, but that is the way we like it, lots of smiling faces and each day just whizzes by!

We have a few photos to share of some of the activities.

Connie & Marcia spent a week in Kalispell, Montana at Quiltworx with Judy Neimeyer.  We had a blast, met some great new friends and are so proud to now be a certified Quiltworx shop!

Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville Mystery Good Fortune with Joy! Week 2!

December 06, 2018

Twas the night before Friday and all through the studio there is a flurry of activity as I clear my table in anticipation of the second clue.  I wonder what it might be this week. The cheery red and white four patches remind me of peppermints and Christmas.  The coffee is set and my clothes laid out.  I am an early riser by nature and I wake early to begin checking my phone for the next clue.


It seems the world over is urging Bonnie to wake and to post the next clue…this is a testament to the positive power she has near and far...even across the water to Australia.

November 27, 2018

It’s Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt time and the theme is Good Fortune!  What a lovely sentiment….good fortune. I have had the Good Fortune to be surrounded by friends and family both far and near and although the mystery is a special blessing for those whose families are scattered or gone for me it is a Blessing and a time for renewal and reflection.

This is the fourth mystery quilt I have chosen to create in the last 5 years. I took one year off and there are parts of me that still regret that decision.  However, my design wall clearly called my name and asked that I finish a few of my own projects…..I completed 4 between Thanksgiving and Christmas...how, it’s a bit of a mystery.

Sunday afternoons mean lazy naps for some, football for others and for me it means cutting time.  

I am usually rested and ready to set up my weeks sewing projects. At the end of a work day it’s easy peasy to sew a few seams here and there and by the end of the week I am ready for another Sunday afternoon cutting session.
