Who turned the calendar two pages at a time, there is just no way we can be half-way through 2021. 

For only the second time in the last 40 years I won't be dressed in a long calico skirt and bonnet marching around the festival grounds in a very loosely formed parade on the Fourth.  I am going to have to find something fun to do before hopefully back to work next year.   

I am sure it is just to add to my confusion this year, the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo that is usually held in April in Cleveland will be in just a few week in Akron.  I have been to this facility before and it is clean and well maintained.  Parking is very close and you don't have to give up your first born child to park there.  It should be a very fun show, hope to see you there.

This favorite panel from J Wecker Frisch has been reprinted.  Each letter has an animal eating something of that letter.  P has a Pig sitting at a Picnic Table with a Pumpkin and a Parrot.  It is not a soft book panel but 7 1/2" square blocks.

 

Quilting Treasures Winter Greetings has two 18 1/2" pictures  with red trucks in front of a winter cottage on each panel.

 

 

It seems Santa doesn't always arrive on a sled.  Last note he was on a tractor and this time he has chosen a train.  Santa's Night Out from Quilting Treasures

 

Sew Lovely from Dan Morris for Quilting Treasures also has coordinates of thimbles, pins, and some tossed sewing tools.

 

 

David Textiles has more Disney Dreams panels available.  This one is 'Sweetheart Cafe'  with Mickey and Minnie.

 

  

Northcott Shimmer has three prints in Blue and Silver Snowflakes.  This is the small snowflakes and we also have Large and Windblown snowflakes.   Something to cool us off after the heat this past week.   Maybe I am not as upset the festival was cancelled again this year, it sure was hot here.

 

 

Happy Quilting,

Marilyn
