Great Weekend With the Crow Girls!

The Crow Girls were so sweet! We all had a wonderful weekend in Omaha thanks to Lyn of More Sew For You who opened her home for all of us to stay in. All of the class attendees learned so much from the lovely ladies from "Tazzie"( as they called their homeland). We learned about using the clever tool...a stapler, to hold our wool in place. Works great! They have a great way of stabilizing the fabric also. If you ever have a chance to take a class from them be sure to do so! They are a hoot!

That's Deirdre on the left, me, Julie (of Me and My Stitches), and Leonie on the right. You can see a hint of their lovelies behind us...their quilts were sooooo beautiful. Their tiny hand stitches looked so perfect they could have been done by machine, but they were done by hand!

The pic below was my set up in the store. Who knows what I was looking at right at picture time! LOL. Julie and I did our best to pose before my camera batteries went dead! Julie sold her jewelry in the back section of the store and the girls took the class in the lower level. This was the third day of our gathering. The other two days were at a hotel conference room.


You can see what a nice store Lyn has as my stuff nestles in around all her goodies.

Several people came in the store and saw Life In The Midwest, excited to see it in person as they have signed up for the BOM happening at Homestead Hearth. It is fun to see them so excited about something I made and that they too are excited to be making!

We had such a fun time! There were many giggles and laughs all weekend! I told the Crow Girls I'd make a fun post about all the funny sayings they have! Here are a few that really made us all laugh!!

"Get it on the google!"

"It's goin straight to the pool room!"

"Tazzie talk"

"Cheease cheease"

"Crow calls!"

"Day dot!"

"Have a go!"

"Dream ya dreams"

"Koala eas"

"On the knocka"



"Far out"

And last but not least..."Smash it out Babes!"

What Sweethearts! I wish them much success in the future!! It was also so nice to meet so many lovely ladies who attended the classes. What a nice bunch of gals! I look forward to seeing them sometime in the future!!

Take care,
