8 Days to Opening on March 22nd!Just a little over a week to go - and I'm leaving for NE in the morning to teach at Nana's Quilt Shop in Grand Island and sharing my quilts in a trunk show for the local guild that night. Later in the weekend, I'm headed over to Omaha to Cottonwood Quilt Guild for a couple of workshops and programs for their guild meetings. I've left lots of instructions for Robert and the crew, so I'm sure the shop will be totally finished when I return... Oh come on, let a girl dream!
It's been great fun shopping for all the extra goodies for the shop. Since we live in a little town with nothing but the deli/grocery store, soda fountain, puppy kennel, post office, bank and a bar, I've tried to include a few things for the local non-stitchers - greeting cards, soaps & candles & gift wrap for that last minute gift. It's so much more convenient that driving 15 miles to Target, don't you agree?
We found a really clever line of cards from Pigeon in my Parlour with vintage pictures and entertaining captions from the hysterical to ironic. One of my favorites: I cannot keep the birds of sorrow from passing over my head but I can keep them from building a nest in my hair.
Our battery-powered candles automatically conserve energy by turning off/on each evening. Isn't the spiral candle holder too cool/prim! And it's under $5!
How tiny can you go? This little basket is just big enough to hold a sqatty little candle and a few buttons.
Come on by throughout the next week for more sneak peeks!
