Hi Quilters!

January is full of new beginnings.

The color that I think of when I think "January" is blue. Probably because of the blue cast of the snow and the gray of the skies. But January is far from Blue! It's exciting. It's new. And if you live up here where it's snowy and cold, it's fun!

That's right, I said it was fun. There is snowmobiling, skiing, snow shoeing, ice fishing... lots and lots of reasons to enjoy the snow. But if you're a stay inside type, there's lots and lots of reasons to quilt!

And looking forward to February and one of my favorite holidays - St Valentine's Day!

Hi Quilters!

While Kaye soaks up the sun down in Arizona, up here in Northern Michigan, we're reeling from this most abnormal winter. Too chilly to have the windows and doors open, and not enough snow to get out the sleds. Too cold yet to even think about gardening, and not enough ice on the lakes to go fishing.

It's just weird! I guess my thoughts are that if this is what winter is like in your neck of the woods, no wonder no one likes it! There's no snow to play in, and no ice to skate on or fish in. What's the point??

Oh, before I forget.....

Quilting Indulgences Boxes will go on sale Tomorrow, 1.11.12 at 10AM and 2PM EST!!

Wait for it.........


What's On Sale....
