so very thankful...

today we will begin to break down the november window display...

before we do though, i wish to take a moment to express our thankfulness to all of you. our readers, our customers, our friends.  we truly appreciate your support.  i am humbled to think that just a little more than two years ago we opened this little shop not really sure where we were headed, and today it thrives as a full service quilt store. in that short amount of time we have gained so very much. the most important, your friendship. we are most grateful.

bigger than yesterday

yes i am referring to black friday. and just what could be bigger you ask? why it's small business saturday. of course we take american express. i wouldn't leave home without it.

but even bigger than's the day us buckeyes live for all year...the day ohio state beats *ichigan aka that school up north. and to help us celebrate...

...all scarlet and gray fabric will be just $5.00 per yard. today only. offer does not apply to previous purchases and is limited to stock on hand.  yes, i might just be sitting in one of those seats. it all depends on the weather and miss sarah's breathing capacity.  no matter what...we will be rooting for our team...go bucks!!! p.s. we really do need to thank those ladies over at sweetwater. they really did us ohio staters proud with mama said sew!

hugging a friend...

there is something magical about this laptop i type into late every night. i connect with like minded people. we converse back and forth, we follow each others blogs and facebook pages. we share creativity on sites like etsy. somehow we become friends without ever meeting. and then life serendipitously brings us together in a hotel hallway...

...and it's like we've known each other since birth. this is crystal and her very handsome little man. sarah loved him!

she is also the brains behind frivolous necessity and the creator of many of the quilts hanging in our store. i do not believe i have every shared ahead of time the fabric that we have ordered. yet somehow, crystal just knows. she gives the extra special touch to our walls and displays.

katrina too was so happy to get to meet her. they share the same compulsion for perfectly matched corners and spot on color coordination.

we decided to walk over to guadalajara for lunch. it's been a long time since sarah and i have dined with a toddler and how fun it was.  
meeting crystal and kayson made our trip to houston all the more perfect.  so thankful for the sweet memories.
