Still Stitching!

I'm still here!  

You know that feeling when you get off the Tilt-A-Whirl at the amusement park?  The feeling that you know you've stopped, but your head is still spinning?

Yeah, that's me.

June has been a true whirlwind of a month!  We had an awesome time in Ohio Amish country.  We posted a few photos of some stunning quilts on our Facebook page.  I am always inspired by such wonderful talent!  I was pleased as punch to be a guest blogger earlier this month for Kristen at Ladybug Blessings.  

We're gearing up for the Original Creative Festival in Sharonville on June 28-30.  I've been stitching up samples, ordering new fabric and patterns, and my now-second grader is home this summer to "help."  It really is cute, the way he is getting so involved in Mommy's shop! 

This is the latest sample from Simply Twisted Designs called Patriotic Twister.  The Twister patterns are extremely popular, and they are easy and fun to put together!

Life is so much better when you're busy!

If you haven't visited the website in a while, I invite you to take a look.  You'll find all of our newest fabrics and dates of upcoming shows.  We've added a fun video tutorial from Riley Blake fabrics to make their Verona apron.  Too cute!

The Little Shop of Stitches is hopping for sure! What are you up to?  Are you traveling to quilt shows?  Are you finding time to stitch?

Oh, what a fun quilt! I recently tried a "twister" technique that's similar. Looks great, and what a great "twist" on the traditional flag look!
