Notes from Nancy

Well I bet all of you just cannot wait for this newsletter to find out
what all I bought on my four day antiquing trip! We had a wonderful time
and I think all of us came home with treasures and empty money bags. I
bought some really nice crocks (Ohio is the best state to find a good
variety of them.) I also found wood mallets for paper towel holders-a
great one is in the bathroom at the shop as well as at the lake. And–do
you know a hog scraper works great to hold an extra roll of toilet
paper? We ended the trip at Sauder Village for the Rug Hooking show.
Life is good!

This week-end will be a relaxing one at the lake and then on Monday I
will walk the 5 miles across the Mackinac Bridge. This has become a
yearly event with friends. We drag ourselves out of bed at 2:30 A.M. and
get to Lansing by 3:00 to get a good seat on the bus. When the bus
takes off all the lights go off and we sleep for a couple of hours and
wake up as the sun is just coming up. It is a great opportunity to walk
this amazing suspension bridge.

I am trying to get the blocks together for Hampton Ridge. We have
pictures of the first four which will be the blocks for January. They
really were fun to put together.


Next weekend, Sept. 7th and 8th, I will be a vendor at the quilt show in
Marshall. It is always a wonderful show and I am excited to be a part
of it. I will have treasures in my booth!

The weekend of the 14th my family will all be in Winamac, Indiana to
celebrate my Dad’s 100th birthday party. (He will turn 100 on the 17th.)
We are all excited to see family and friends for this event. My Dad was
a farmer for many years and has always lived in the area. He is the
oldest man in Winamac.

Check out the schedule for our little events we have going in the shop.
Join us for Debby’s Stitched by Hand, day time or evening Rug Hooking,
Wednesday Woolies, or stitching Hexie’s . Carolyn will teach you how to
Tat which is becoming a lost art.

If you have been away for awhile, come and check out all the new fabrics
that have arrived durring the summer. You just can’t wait till November
to buy Christmas fabric anymore!

It is always fun to see Fall arrive as I love all the decorating that
can be done with pumpkins, gourds, and berries. I have been doing some
new samples of needle punch and it has been a nice change from making
hexie’s which I still do!

Keep Stitching, Nancy

Uh oh! We made a mistake. If you purchased our Journey to
the Past finishing kit, you may have noticed that something is missing.
We forgot to put in the pattern for the star applique! If you need it,
stop by the shop and we will have some ready for you!

Calling all Hexie-Holics! We will be
having the second meeting of hexie-holics on September 26th at 10:00 am.
Bring your English Paper Piecing Project and join in the fun!
