Summertime and the Berry picking is easy however my arms seem to be a smorgasbord for flying insects and a dart board for thorns!  They are wild so no 'thornless varieties'.  One day I did have this helper.   Elderberries are next -- hopefully they will wait until the return from Raleigh.

 

 

 

It is Christmas in July, or so it seems.   We have received so many new Christmas Panels.   This advent calendar from Northcott will be great to teach number recognition and ordering--painlessly learning math concepts.  Notice the numbers are not in order so the little ones will have to find the next number.  This panel stitches up so quickly.  You can quilt the top or not.  

 

 

Riley Blake Designs has a group of Santa panels called Christmas Time is Here.   They all are full yard panels.  This panel has four of the pictures in a smaller format.  

 

 

Also from Northcott is Hay...It's Christmas which also has a plaid coordinate.  A great Christmas gift for the horse lover in your life.

 

 

And not to forget Halloween we have the new panel from StudioSpooky Night, this is also a full yard panel.  

 

I do hope you can make it to a show this year.   There are some great new fabrics and shipping seems to have stabilized.

Happy Quilting,
