Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin : I saw a red leaf! Let me repeat that for those of you in apparant disbelief! I saw a red leaf. It was laying on the ground. It's not even August. (Ok, one more day, but can we get back to the main dilemma?) A red leaf. On the ground. That happens in the fall, when snow is imminent! Yikes!!

This week the sale page features, not red leaves lying on the ground (in July), but beachy themed patterns! We've also included a smattering of Back-To-School items. Enjoy it while it lasts....

Kaye's Favorite Gadgets....

My favorite sewing and quilting gadgets have got to be the Starmakers and the View & Do Shapes.

  • Clover rotary cutters & mats. (the blades stay sharp longer than any other blade I have used). My favorite is the 60mm.
  • Clover magnetic pin cushion with cover (the pins magnetically line up along the length of the pin cushion, instead of going in all different directions).
  • Just about anything Clover makes.
  • Janome sewing machine & serger. My machine cuts the thread automatically. I don't have to lift the presser foot; just start sewing and it lowers automatically; my knee lift raises the presser foot temporarily when needed.
  • My favorite Janome attachment is the Circle Stitcher.
  • My favorite gadgets (non-sewing & quilting) are:
  • I Phone (love, love Siri; GPS)
  • The Cloud so all my computer stuff syncs.
  • I Pad (I had to get one because my Kindle died)
  • IRobot vacuum cleaner (it cleans while I sew or nap)
  • Anything with a remote - car starter (so the AC kicks on), garage door opener, ceiling fan, TV, VCR, electric fireplace.

What are your favorite gadgets?

Mama owl cuddles her baby chick in her loving wings on this delightful quilt. Both the mother's and the baby's wings move to hug each other. This quilt is suitable for both quilting fabrics and cozy flannels.

This pattern uses easy raw edge applique for the details.

Show and Tell....

I finally finished the cars wall hanging! Hope you like it. I used your Diamonds of Yellowstone Pattern and Embroidery Library classic cars designs.

The cars in the smallest diamonds were some I'd collected over the years.

He loves the wall hanging. (He's thanked me for making it half a dozen times in the last couple days.)
