Last Blog before quilt market! I can give my sewing machine a rest for a few minutes. One of my favorite animated movies is "Finding Nemo"  and in that movie there is great line by the fish, Dora.  "Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming"  is what Dora says to Marlin, (Nemo's Dad) when he is getting discouraged about the distance he has to travel to find his son Nemo......yes, I have said that line a lot the last few weeks.....Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.  Swimming through Fabric.  We have so many great, fun, unique things to show at ... more

Enjoy Today

10 Sep 2009

We hope you all enjoyed your labor day.....and the last bites of summer. I love summer food and am already mourning the end of it, not to mention our long warm summer days. Living in Alpine we are spoiled with fresh produce from the local farmers.  In the past few weeks we have indulged the most succulent peaches I think we have ever had.....they are drip down your chin good.  Sweet corn is always a favorite.  Now the tomatoes and apples are starting to be harvested and my pantry is overflowing with fresh produce.  I will share a ... more

Back to School

24 Aug 2009

Did you all hear the cheers from Utah.  All kids are back in school. We had a great summer, but all good things must come to an end.  My youngest child just started 1st grade and it will be the first time in 16 years that I have 6 hours to myself.  It was bittersweet to watch my sidekick walk through the school doors this morning. My older kids want to know what I will be doing with all of my "Free Time". Ha!   But now I do have some time to post a few pictures have fabric that has ... more

Alpine Quilt Group

29 Jul 2009

We had our monthly Alpine quilt group meeting last night and our own Jina Barney was asked to be the quest speaker. It was interesting to see and hear about her quilting journey as she presented her 50 plus quilts.  Jina is one of the original members of this Alpine quilt group that was started 20 years ago by a handful of  ladies that wanted to learn the art of quilting. They met frequently at the little red church on main street in Alpine.  We still meet at this church, but now this Alpine quilt group ranges from 50-70 people ... more
