More Fabric

This week we have another 100 bolts in the store. Love U from Moda, American Patriot from Marcus, Enchanted Rose by RJR, Veranda from Maywood, Metro goes Au Natural, and Dolce by RJR. We are really stacked and I will be glad when I can get some more storage into the shop.

The borders for the next block of the month arrived. Carol Nelson and I had to make some changes(for the better) with the coloring. I think all the 2nd Saturday folk will love this quilt. Can't wait for everyone see it. Carol will be working on it. I think we will have it in shop sometime in January.

Tonight we had our shop Christmas party at Olive Garden. We had so much fun. Always great to be with everyone.

2nd Saturday

We are all ready for 2nd Saturday. New class list will be out and put up on the web. I am so excited. There are a lot of new teachers. New classes that are completely new to The Cotton Patch. There will so many fun things to make and to learn.
Errin Rissberger's sample block for the wool block of the month will be shown 2nd Saturday. I know that it will cause a lot of ooo's and aw's . It is truly beautiful.
Carol has the new counter block of the month. It is so cute. Each month there will be a block that is geared toward that month. January is a snowman. Carol always does a great job.

Fun, fun, fun...... lots of new stuff.

200 bolts? Who ordered all this?

Wow! 200 bolts this week. I love the UPS man! I have to say it was a challenge to get all of the fabric put away. The good thing is that we keep clearing bolts and that makes way for new. Thanks to all the customers for helping us out.

We also put up a bunch of new quilts. Carol Nelson finished Birds and Bees. We had 5 kits this morning.. now we have 2. It is a darling quilt. Black and Tan.

Loretta Orsborn stopped by and brought in class samples for Playing with Textures and the Tuffet class. That's right I said Tuffet. It is so cute. A foot stool that is upolstered in patchwork. Loretta always has such great ideas.

I am putting the finishing touches on the new class list too. We are going to have so many fun classes after the first of the year. Way cool!

See you next time,
