A Busy Week!

Ahhh, it's always good to wake and have a tall cup of coffee the morning after a busy week, isn’t it?

 As mentioned in my last post, the Woolen Oak Mystery Stitch-A-Long Group on FB is rolling right along.  Another week finished and this coming week is my turn to release a FREE block for this stitch along!  We offered pre-sales on kits and got them all ready to ship out early so it took us a bit of time to make sure all was ready.  My block will be available tomorrow, Aug. 1st so be sure to click HERE and join the group to get all the FREE downloads. It's been so much fun to see so many blocks completed, each and every one unique and darling!  

Jeff and I did a little happy dance after learning how to print labels in quick fashion!  Haha!  It was my biggest fear I will admit!  I am so thankful for those in the Stitch Along who trusted in us enough to pre order the kits, site unseen.  ❤️  Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.   We have our middle daughter and her husband here with us this weekend and it was nice to have their help getting everything into the post office on time.  Thanks "Kids"!  

With no shows to go to, I’m thoroughly enjoying getting the quilts out of the suitcase and hanging them in our home.   It was Rustic Wedding's turn yesterday.  Honestly, I don’t remember if this quilt has ever had the pleasure of hanging in our home for us to enjoy for more than a day!  It is a special quilt because I was inspired by the happy couple above because their wedding was rustic in style.  It always makes me think of their beautiful wedding.  You can see it is a wedding ring block in the center of the quilt with floral Applique accents.  This quilt is layered cotton and wool which adds a bit of extra interest and texture.  The printed cotton applique shape which is under the wool appliqué add a hint of  curiosity from viewers at show and the comment is "What is it that looks so different about this quilt?"  We usually chat for a while and eventually it is decided they are seeing the interest added from the cotton applique layer in the wedding ring blocks.  When it comes to wool appliqué, this little tid bit of layered applique is what I’m known for.  You can see the prime example in the quilt, Pennies In My Garden on the website HERE.  Once on the website, hold your mouse over these quilts and you will see them up close for detail.  

Have a blessed day and as always, thank you for stopping by!  
Take care, Missie
PS...with the mention of no shows to attend this year, I welcome you to take a peek at all the goodies on the website and help us empty this house a bit!  😉  We are filled to the rafters with merchandise and no place to offer it to quilters!  Know someone who is missing shopping?  I invite you to share my post so they may feel the need to check out my website to help us with our problem in the house right now!  😂🤣😂
