DANGER! WIll Robinson! DANGER!


Well, let me tell you, new RADA knives are sharp SHARP! I was visiting my son at the tech school he is attending, and being the wonderful momma that I am I was making his favorite sweet potato dish, and low and behold, lookie lou to what I did! Did i mention, that I hate cutting sweet potatoes because I am always afraid of cutting myself?

After finding out that the little po dunk town that his tech school is in does not have medical services available on weekends, we traveled to the next largest town and after 3 hours in the emergency room, I became the proud owner of 4 brand new stitches. This pic was actually taken today, and this happened last weekend.
I get my stitches out next Thursday! Yippee! (Oh bother, like pooh would say!)

News on the Quilt Shop opening front! The building had hail damage, and that resulted in a VERY leaky roof. We do not have possession yet. So the current owners had to take care of that. We now have a new roof on the building, and a garantee for 2 years on it. So we are happy about that. Looks like we won't get possession until sometime in the later part of October. We are still getting lots of bolts of fabric in! I am looking into getting the shop up on the web soon also.

So much to do and so little time. I am currently trying to work on shop samples when I am not working at my current job (RN at local hospital). Trying to decide on the layout of the shop, what walls need to come down, etc. I hope to get a pic up of the shop front at some point, then I will put pics up as we do the remodel.

Got my order from Primitives By Kathy. Ordered some note pads and a display piece. It is soooooooooooo cute! I am just busting with excitement! I am also marketing my own patterns at the quilt shop when it opens too! I sold two at a Summer Fest in July, and the gals are working on them now. It excites me to see what fabrics others use with my patterns. I have a friend that is helping me with the writing of the patterns once they are designed. This person wants to stay anonymous for now, but I want to give her a big THANKS here! Here they are:





The Firecracker Quilt pattern is a minature, and the Fall Frenzy is a larger quilt, and charm pack friendly.
Leave a comment on this post and I will draw a a couple of winners, one for each pattern next weekend!

See You Soon!

OUCH!!! I had stitches in the tip of my finger once. OMG!!! You talk about hurt. The shot they gave me to numb it hurt worse than any cut I think.
So where in Missouri will your quit shop be??

Ouch! Poor Deb. Well, it looks like it's healing well. And hey, if somebody has to have a cut without a medical facility close by, at least a nurse knows how to keep from bleeding to death! Can't wait to see pics of the new shop!!!

Yowzers! When you injure yourself, you don't mess around. It looks like it really hurts...especially the spot it is in! Can't wait to see bigger pics of your patterns. The Fall Frenzy is particularly appealing to me. Good luck on your new endeavor!

Congratulations on the patterns. I have to say, when I saw the photo of your hand in stitches, my first thought was that I hoped it wasn't from a rotary cutter blade!
