Calm Before the Storm


We've made it to April and things are relatively calm for another month and then we'll be busy, busy, busy!!!  Invoices have been sent for the McQueeney retreat and are about to go out for the June Stitchin' Heaven retreat.  Don't forget, Mom is teaching at TWO upcoming Steampunk Fairytale retreats, one at Fox Country Quilts and one at Stitchin' Heaven!  Don't miss out on those!

The end of May, Mom and I are going to be unreachable for a week as we set sail on the Stitchin' Heaven Patriot Cruise with The Combat Quilter and The Quilting Marine!  We're going as students and are looking forward to a week of quilting and relaxation.  We'll see how Mom does, she currently doesn't like any quilting that doesn't involve FPP.  We'll be sure to share pictures of our adventures!  

Three days after we get home, we're heading down to McQueeney for a Technique of the Month Retreat.  We're looking forward to heading down to the hill country area, I might have to run away one morning for some GOOD breakfast tacos!  I haven't done any of the TOTM quilts yet, but I do have a Judy project to work on.  In January, we took a road trip to South Texas to see friends and family and stopped at a little quilt shop on our way home.  The shop had recently been contacted by a widower who's wife had been a quilter and he reached out for help with finding new homes for her quilting supplies.  The had brought a lot of her quilting kits and supplies to their shop to help him sell, knowing that they would be more likely to go to a quilter who would use them.  I found a box with a partially completed Cactus Flower Tablerunner for $15.  It looks like it has all of the fabric needed to complete, so I'll be diving into it at the McQueeney retreat with Mom's help.  I'll be sure to keep y'all updated on my progress!  

I'm also about to start playing with Haystack Cookies, I love how it looks as a 40x40 quilt!  I've already started playing in Quiltster and will probably do this one in Tim Holtz!  

Be sure you're following us on IG and FB for more updates on what we're up to!

Keep Quilting, y'all!
