Happy Easter - Bring on Spring!

I've been quietly busy since the year started!  Taught a Beginning Paper Piecing (Traditional & Freezer Paper combo) class in February at a new shop in town.  It's a sweet little store called First Stitches located in the back of a used BOOK shop.  OMG!!  Sewing and multitudes of Books under the same roof - I'm in heaven :)

It was crazy fun & here's the proof:

Owner & admitted thread-aholic, Kim, posted some other photos (when we were actually working!) on her blog - check it out:  Paper-Piecing at First Stitches

We are SO fortunate to have TWO sewing & quilting destinations locally.  Our other well-established, well-named quilt store is Denise's Creative Cloth Closet  - you don't want to miss "First Saturday"!!  (or, any other Saturday for that matter!)

Some businessy-stuff had to get done in between the fun.  I finally got all my patterns converted to pdf downloads (now available in my etsy shop).  I also started selling a few patterns on Craftsy!  There are some lovely designs out there, as well as fantastic classes.  I've already signed up for a few & if you've ever had the slightest interest in Modern Quilting, the FREE Quiltcon Lecture Series is a wonderful treat.

I also do a little on-line shopping (don't tell anyone!) & picked up a lovely kit at a fellow Etsian shop - The Baily Girls.  The kit included 5 fat quarters, Minky backing & a PDF pattern at a great price.  It went together fast & I just love the sweet, optimistic colors:

And, of course, I couldn't pass up a new journal with it's eternal promise - for today & every day!!  Happy Easter - bring on spring - I'm ready!!  Love, faith.
