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 ...

christmas pjs (233x348)

Just finished my Christmas PJs and Riley, our family photographer, took the photo.  This is the first project I have completed in quite a while ........We have had so many deadlines with quilt Market that I had to get something done with our Christmas Flannel before it is completely sold out. Yes, It is selling fast...Thank you to everyone who is buying, selling and sewing.  We have come a long way in a year. Sample spree was too much fun last spring and I am scrambling to finish several projects before heading back to Quilt Market in Houston.  Riley ... ...read 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 ... ...read more

  Darling Ivy trellis quilt by Karen Bennett/ Nellies needle.  Karen is a marvelous quilter that always comes up with something great with our fabric.  Karen dropped by our warehouse today to give us a peek of her new quilt. We are sharing our peek with you.  This pattern will be available soon through the Website and Christensen Wholesale.

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 ... ...read more

Riley Blake updates

16 Jul 2009

It has been a few weeks of craziness, but I finally have a moment to update our blog.  Our warehouse was closed for a couple of days due to sidewalk construction.  We took advantage  of the closure and took a quick trip up to Jackson hole, Wyoming and Yellowstone park.   And Yes!!! Our trip was complete when we were able to see a bear just 30 feet away from our car in Yellowstone Park.   The black bear was just meandering around a stream close to the side of the road.  But back to work!! Jina and I have been working ... ...read more

Donny Osmond and Twenty years of marriage

DONNY AND MARIE 1 (300x228)

20 Years!!!  My Husband and I just celebrated our 20 year Wedding Anniversary last week. And since Bret HATES his picture taken,  I thought I would include a picture of the person I was planning on marrying when I was just eight years old.  Yes, it was Donny Osmond. I dug out a few things from my childhood, that I have been unable to part with...LOL. As an eight year old, I was sure Donny and I were meant for each other. It did not matter that he was ten years older and millions of other girls felt the ... ...read more

MISSING tooth fairy

08 Jun 2009

Does anyone have the address of the tooth fairy?  Send it our way. We want to file a complaint.  Our youngest son lost his first tooth yesterday.  He was so excited, he had waited and waited all year for this.  He carefully placed his tooth in a plastic bag to make sure it would not be lost under his pillow.   7:58 am the next morning, tooth remains no cash.  Did the tooth fairy forget, was she sleeping on the job, or did she get distracted because she was doing laundry late at night and watching the food channel?  We ...
