Our Customers Rock!!

We love it here when a customer brings something in to share with us! ESPECIALLY when they bring something in that they have added their own stamp to!
Such was the case the other day when Darlene brought in her Live Love Laugh quilt!
Now we had just revamped this popular pattern with new and fresh colors. Brought it back to life from the pastel colouring it once sported! And we were pretty happy with the results...that is until Darlene brought in her version to show us!!!

Darlene's version

The Quilt Patch version

Darlene made hers using the new Little Black Dress 2 fabric! Isn't it just stunning?! She also added and extra border to make it slightly larger! Now why didn't we think of that?! Makes me want to whip up her elegant version for my very own!  Thanks for sharing with us Darlene!

I thought I was going to blog about how we got water in the basement of the shop, and it ended up being a cracked pipe and we now have a hole in a wall in the front of our shop and we just covered it with a quilt....but....Jo said, NAH, that's boring - blog about whats new!! Our Babies!!
So here I am!! Blogging about our babies!

Katie Gray

Grandma Jo

So Jo has a new grandbaby!! She is the cutest little pipsqueek ever!  This is Jo's first grandbaby and she's head over heels!

Now if you recall my last blog post (yes, yes, I am quite aware it's been a long time.....!!) I posted a pic of Jo's fur baby, Tinsel. Sadly, Tinsel got sick and unfortunately the vets did everything they could for her but she had to be put down.
Jo and Tinsel

It was a very sad time, but Jo went back to the Humane Society and rescued Tinsels brother, Claus!! And is now the proud owner of fur baby number 2!!

Claus aka Kinzl
Now....not to be undone...I recently had to put my cat down after 18 years.  He was old, his body was shutting down and he was suffering. It's still a hard thing to do.
But after a little subtle hinting from my son... we went to the Humane Society..."just to look"...heehehe!

Meet Oli!! He's four  months old. A boy. And is super cuddly and loveable! I've had him less than 24 hours now, and I think I've received more love from him in that time than I did in all the 18 years we owned our last cat! So now that you've met our fur babies, let me know if you still want to know about the cracked pipe!!
