It's been a week or two................

since I said I would post the winner of the Front Porch Dessert Roll tomorrow.
The winner is Janice Fowler and her Dessert Roll shipped with her March Hare blocks.
Hope you enjoy it Janice.  I really like this fabric line.

So why did it take so long to post?
First, I had to finish the patterns that will show at Spring Market.

My new fabric line is called Castlewood.
Here's a sneak peek of "Santa's Tree Farm" a pattern designed by myself and grandson Cullen.

As soon as the deadline was over........
I got the flu.
Only time in a couple of years and the worst was over in about 36 hours but that was long enough.
Then for 3-4 days I just wanted to sit around - no get-up-and-go.
So everything took about 3 times longer than normal.

I've mostly recovered now - enough to have Cullen and Quinn up for the weekend.

We made some great cupcakes - or I supervised (and helped with the eating part)

And they made them.

Then we all took a nap - - - -  you notice that Dobby has a sock nearby :)

It's finally feeling and looking a little like spring.

To celebrate, we put Farmer's Market on sale - both the kit and the pattern.

As well as the Tulips and Leaves Kit.  But hurry if you want the kit, we only have 2 left.

Here's a closeup of Lori's awesome quilting.  
From now on I'll have to go visit my Uncle Fred & Aunt Grace if I want to see it.
My sister Nancy and I spent a wonderful week with them last summer at their home in California.
Tulips and Leaves reminds me so much of the colors and feel of their home that I'm giving it to them.
I hope they enjoy it.

And it gives me a chance to go visit again - both my Aunt and Uncle and my quilt!  :)

March Hares - Calendar Quilt, Block 1 or Table Stand Quilt - or both

Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest.  Hmmm - not when you're really sick of winter!
My Sunday afternoon was spent taking all of the snowmen, holly berries, winter quilts & rugs and lovingly storing them until next year.

Out came Spring!  - Bunnies & birds & Iris!

Audra's Iris Garden got to hang in the foyer this year - last year it was traveling.
(We still have a few kits left and of course we have the patterns.)

And Farmer's Market is home this year too and went to the back of my chair.  (For the pattern, click here and click on the name for the kit.)

I tell you ladies - it is SPRING here - at least inside anyway :).
Outside's doing pretty well too - for today - this is Missouri.

And today is the first tutorial on the Calendar Quilt/ Table Stand BOM.  
I'm really excited about this.  It's lots of fun.

Block One is March Hare.

It will include the Applique block each month and a log cabin block each month.
And every month on the 10th (or as close to the 10th as we can get) a tutorial on the block will be posted and then we'll ship the kits close to the 15th.

You can buy the patterns month by month for the table stand quilts and the kits too.  However if you want to make sure you have the kits for all of them or want to make the big quilt, you need to email Tori at and sign up.  We'll ship kits to the sign up people first and then put the rest in the store.
We all know by now that when we run out of fabric, we run out of fabric.

And speaking of fabric, all our existing club members and anyone new that signs up will be in a drawing for this great Front Porch Dessert Roll.

We were going to have the drawing for it today but since it's a Monday, we'll wait until tomorrow so everyone has a chance to sign up that wants to.

Good luck ladies.
