This blog is now exclusively devoted to crafting in general, and the shop in particular! Pretty much all of my personal content has been moved to a new blog, one that is intended primarily to help keep our family and friends in the loop. (If you are interested in following the new blog, you will find it here.) This blog will continue to feature shop news, new listings, sales, giveaways, and all of my share-worthy crafting exploits.

I finally finished the mini-quilt that I made for my cousin! It's been a long time in the making... I started it at the end of December! But it's my first quilt ever, so I get a little leeway, right? It's just about done now, though: I just have to hand stitch one more little thing and it'll be done. Then I'll just need to get it in the mail to her. Her birthday is this weekend, so I doubt it'll makes it there in time for that, but it won't be too late.

Sometimes us girls like to get together to sew on Mondays, when the shop is closed. This week, I didn't sew, but I sat and crocheted with Jennifer and Lizzy while they did. Jennifer was working on her little diapey bags, and helping Lizzy with her project: and American flag mini quilt. It was actually really entertaining for me. watching them go back and forth. They are both pretty sassy, and I had fun watching the sparks fly as they bantered back and forth. (Don't worry, they were laughing too!) I'm not sure how much Jennifer got done, but Lizzy was able to finish the whole top portion of the quilt--it looks great!!
As s side note, it says a lot about the way that we feel about the store, and each other, that we come in on our days off to hang out together. I feel so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful place, and such a wonderful group of people. I really and truly love my job, not least because of the people I work with. :)
