Snow Pail and Gifts

I've had a bit more sewing time again this week, love that! I got these cute little patterns by Sweetwater in at the shop for this Snow Pail and just had to give one a whirl. They make up quickly and for only $2.99 for the pattern, you can't go wrong. The first batch has sold out already and there are more on their way to me now. They have a great line of fun patterns if you're interested in checking them out.

I've also been making a couple of Christmas gifts. I'll post pictures of them when they're finished. Thanks for stopping by, I'll try to post again in the next few days!

Busy, Busy!

I've been busy, but it's a good busy! I'm enjoying the life of shopkeeper very much! One thing that amazes me is how fast the time goes by! Never a dull moment, that's for sure!

Yesterday I was able to sew for a bit. On Tuesday we had our first sew-in at the shop, Kaaren, Gail, Deanna, Debra, Lisa, my mom and myself had a great time together sewing and sharing! Kaaren shared some pictures on her blog. I worked on that black, red and tan free blog pattern from Lisa Bongean that I had started last year. The blocks were finished and it just needed to be put together and have borders added. So yesterday afternoon, I was able to finish it. Can't wait to see it quilted!

I was also able to finish this little cutie by Kim Diehl.

I'm having fun, stop by if you're in the area to see!

We're Open For Business!!!

Yup, we did it!! We opened the shop on November 1st. It was lots of work, and of course, thousands of last minute things that had to be done. But when we opened the doors on Friday morning at 9am, we were so pleased to have shoppers waiting outside. The weather was not on our side, with high winds and heavy rain, I thought some people might decide it was best to wait until another day, but we were so pleased with how many of you made the trip to see us!!

Thursday night, my hubby and I were there quite late, putting on the finishing touches. Once he got the sign on the front of the building, I had to take a picture. It was raining and dark, but just couldn't wait any longer.
One of the best things about the two days, was getting to meet some of you! Several ladies from around the province made their way here to be a part of my big day! Thank you so much.

And I've been promising pictures of the shop, so here are a few. My daughter was here to help us out on Saturday, as an artist, she gets shots from a much different perspective than what I think to do, so these are her shots from yesterday. Hope you enjoy the pics, get inspired or even better, I hope you decide to get in the car and come see me!! Be sure to introduce yourself if you do!! :)
