Hi There!


May 1st…. ALREADY?!?!?  I don’t think Mother Nature’s aware that we should be in full Spring Mode, right now….


Anyhow, IMPORTANT update to Quilt Shows. 


The Woodstock quilt show is in 2015!  My mistake!  So sorry….


We should be reading:


“A Kaleidoscope of Quilts”

Woodstock Quilters Guild

Also, it was brought to my attention that there is another quilt show to put in your agenda, for the summer:


Akerley Area Quilt Guild Show

One of our quilting friend’s husband brought these 2 items in. 


I have several of them, here, for sale.  If you would like one or both, give me a holler.


This one (see below) is called a “Small Thread Carrier” and measures 4-1/4” (length) X 2-3/4” (high) and 1-1/2” wide, with a magnet on the side for your needle(s).


Great for hand quilters or hand piecers. Makes a super gift for your Secret Quilty Pal, too!


On Sale for $10.00



And this is the “Cone Holder”. And they are $20.00 each.



I have one that I use for my cones of thread.  I also have a few empty, plastic cones which I use to wind my binding on.  Soooo, I use my 2nd cone holder to hold my binding, while I’m feeding it through my sewing machine.  Keeps it off the floor or wound around my neck.



At this point, I’d like to remind you to do a computer maintenance and backup.  When we change the pages of our calendars, we are reminded that it is time to do our monthly computer backup.


I wrote 3 or 4 blogs on how to do a computer cleanup:




And here’s your monthly Funny!





Well, that’s about it, folks.
