Catching Up

KT Winner

Congrats to Karen in Breezy Point - you're the winner of the Just For You gift bag pattern. Hope you're staying cool up there in Minnesota!

A Long Week

Right after the last blog post, Robert's Dad was transfered to Hospice for his final days. After a very long struggle with heart disease and kidney failure, he passed last weekend. The days following were full of family decisions for Robert. I took over the store so he could focus on what he needed to do. Today, everyone has gone back to work and their normal lives and we're trying to catch up with the business at hand. It's always sad to lose a loved one, but also a relief that he's no longer suffering. Keep Robert in your prayers. Thanks.

The Old Country Store & Museum

Because of all the uncertainty of the past couple weeks, I felt I needed to cancel my trip to The Old Country Store Quilt Museum on Tuesday, July 30th. I hope all of you still attend this fabulous event and enjoy it for me. Jan Mast and her staff have put together a day of fun and surprises that are worth the drive to Intercourse, PA. There's still time to enter their Kansas Troubles quilt contest. Send pictures!

Material Rewards

The other half of my trip east was to Material Rewards Quilt Shop in Danville, NY. Marty & Teri agreed to move my program and workshops to September 26-28th. I'll be teaching Icicle Stars, Pheasant Feathers and a couple of projects out of Loose Change. I understand there's a waiting list for the workshops, but I'd love for you to join us Friday night for a trunk show of all the latest KT quilts and yummy desserts!

See you all on Monday for another KT giveaway!
