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

ivy trellis quilt 1 (283x300)

  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. The purple (more like a periwinkle) in this line is one of my favorite colors.    I love this Ivy Trellis quilt too!  This new pattern by Green Fairy is bright and beautiful and is now available to order.  *If anyone makes a ... 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

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 ... more

Donny Osmond and Twenty years of marriage

23 Jun 2009

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 ... more

ric-rac blog 2

Our ric-rac is finally here!! Why do we love our velvet ric-rac.  It is unique and adds great texture to any project.  We have 15 great colors to choose from, and the best reason we love our velvet ric-rac is that it is washable.  Made out of 100% nylon, it holds its shape and does not curl wash after wash. 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 ... more

All Star -a Great Fabric line for Boys

27 May 2009

all star strike off

Our "All Star" strike-offs are in and look great. This line was made for boys, but is far from boy exclusive. Brought to you from the same designer of "just Dreamy", we have carried over some of the same elements of that line. (Notice the tone on tone circle dots and the micro dots.)  Currently only in cotton (We are considering flannel) this comes in three great colorways. Pre-order this now and it will be shipped in August. more

May Madness

Austin's Birthday cake

It is the last week of school and our oldest son just turned 16, yikes!  I ordered a cake from my favorite artisan bakery "Dippidee" .  I told them to surprise me  with a design but use a Rugby theme.  This is what they came up with...."Give Blood Play Rubgy"  Funny! my son loved it. The football, almost a rugby ball is made of frosting.  It looked so real I had to touch it, thus the small dot on the side of the ball.  He just got invited to play on a all star team that will play at Stanford ... more

Ivy Trellis

22 May 2009

We just received our production samples of "Ivy Trellis".  Beautiful! This line is so elegant and fresh that I am thinking of re-doing my bedroom in these fabrics.  The small strike-offs that we showed at Quilt market did not do the finished product justice. We are excited for all to see. Beyond quilting this line will make beautiful clothing, bags and home decor items.  Gabriella Hunter is a talented artist and her debut line "Ivy Trellis" will ship Mid June.
