Rollin’ in the Jo!

Studio_April2014 059

I arrived home from lunch out with a friend and a long wonderful massage to find a box stuffed into my mailbox!

Would you get a look at that return address?

Ooooh baby!

I hoofed it all the way down my driveway eager to get into this lovely little carton – just what did Jo send??

We had a great time in Pigeon Forge a couple of weeks ago, it was so great seeing her again.

Holy Toasty Shirtings, Batman!

And blues and reds to boot!

I’m going to have a great time cutting hexies from these fabulous scraps.  I will pet them and fondle them and dream about how lovely they will be in my on-going ((ever-on-going)) traveling hexi project!

Thanks, Jo!!


Three happy quilters in Pigeon Forge!

Jo Morton, Me, and Cindy Blackberg – love these ladies!

Today’s redbud tree in bloom at Sam’s club.  LOVE!

It’s a lovely afternoon, low 60s, a bit breezy, but these feet are itching to go walk my neighborhood.

The UPS man has still not shown up in my drive way with the rest of the books.  He usually shows up about 5pm so I am hoping that by the end of my walk he will have been here and left them on my front porch and the order filling can resume through the evening so I can mail all out before I leave for TN in the morning.

If not – they will definitely be here waiting when I return in a week, and we’ll get them ALL out then!

  1. Love Cindy Blackberg! Have taken several classes from her in Houston at Festival and she is a wonderful teacher. So sad she is not coming back. Her handwork is amazing. She taught me a lot. Love the wool needlekeep her sister made.

  2. Oh, I love Jo Morton's fabrics! You are so lucky! When are the fabric manufacturers going to have YOU design some fabric? It definitely would include some cheddar!!! Have a safe trip tomorrow!

  3. Lucky lucky girl!!! Jo fabrics are my absolute favorite and I also ordered Cindy's needle keep and wool sewing keep off her site. Love them!!!
