Thanks, Chris Currie, for providing the inspiration!
And Super Heroes, don't forget your local food bank. Sadly, the need is always great.
AS YOU ARE AWARE, THIMBLES & THINGS DOES HAVE THE INSIDE SCOOP AT...
AND THE WORLD HAS BEEN ANTICIPATING SOME VERY BIG NEWS IN PRINCE HARRY'S LIFE...
TODAY WE ARE GOING TO DO A LITTLE EAVESDROPPING...
THERE YOU HAVE IT! PRINCE HARRY POPPED THE QUESTION AND MEGHAN MARKLE DID INDEED SAY "YES"!!!
REMEMBER, YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST QUILTERS!!!
LOOK WHO POPPED INTO THE SHOP YESTERDAY WITH THIS GORGEOUS RUG HOOKING PROJECT IN HAND...
TURNS OUT, GAIL IS NOT JUST A STRIPPER.
SHE'S A HOOKER AS WELL...
A BEAUTIFUL RUG HOOKER!!!
I don't know if you can see the detail a little better in this one...
I tell you, quilters, this was absolutely gorgeous, and GUESS WHAT!!!??!!!
Some of this work was done using pantyhose...
...that had been dyed with Kool-Aid.
Oh, make no mistake about it. There are wool strips in that beauty!!!
I've always been fascinated by hookers, and often secretly thought it would be fun to give hooking a try...
Chris Currie very kindly sent this saying along and I just love it!
"I meant to be good at the fabric store. I really did.
But then I got out of the car and went in!"
In an effort to see if there are any rules about "being good at fabric stores" we decided to check in with Ryan Gosling who is, of course, fresh off the red carpet. Here's what he had to say...
Well, that solves that!
LOOKS LIKE ALL IS GOOD... FOR SOME OF US.
It's confession time.
How many WIP's do you have?
AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO CALL YOU "BAD GIRL" IF YOU FESS UP!!!
Many thanks to Brenda Tupling for providing us with the scientific evidence that QUILTING IS INDEED A SPORT!!!!!
IT INVOLVES BATTING....
IT INVOLVES RUNNING (okay running stitches... but nonetheless...)
I do believe the quilters pictured above are on their way to the FAT QUARTER SALE!!!!
It certainly involves pumping iron....
Okay... this kind of iron...
(That may be pushing it!)
(Okay, hunting for fabric.... BUT IT IS STILL HUNTING!!!)
Yes, indeed! I do believe that qualifies us quilters as athletes!!!
AND WE DO NEED SAFETY GEAR!!!!
HECK!!! BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, SPORT CHEK (Yes, that is the correct spelling) IS GOING TO GET IN ON OUR FUN!!!!
AS YOU ALREADY KNOW, SUE IS PRETTY MUCH "GIVING AWAY" A TON OF FAT QUARTERS ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28TH.
10 COTTON FAT 1/4's FOR $25
I know... wait for it...
10 BATIK FAT 1/4'S FOR $30
AND SO YOU THINK...
Here's just one idea from Shabby Fabrics.
And this quilt was made with 9 FAT 1/4's.... SEW EASY!!!
Just some ideas on how make good use of this steal of deal!!
Sue has books that feature FAT QUARTERS!!! And remember your coupon card for the month of February!!! $5 OFF BOOKS!!!
LOOK AT WHAT WE HAD AT HEXI HAPPINESS!!!!
YES INDEED!!! THOSE ARE WHAT YOU WOULD CALL "OLD FASHIONED VALENTINE'S CANDIES"!!!
There were pink and red Smarties; chocolate hearts wrapped in red tin foil; red heart jelly bean 'thing-a-ma-jings'; the quintessential cinnamon red hearts, and, of course, those lovely colourful candies with sayings like "Be Mine" and "True Love". You know the kind!!!
The lovely and talented Christine brought these in for our hexi group and PRESENTED them in sweet glass containers atop a silver tray which was then all placed beautifully on top of the sweetest wee heart quilt you would ever lay eyes on. Now that's thoughtful and that is pure talent!! Yum! Yum! Yum!!!
And if you thought that was it, YOU are WRONG!!!!
Carol, brought in... wait for it.... ohhhhhhh yeah....
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES FROM PATILERO'S!!!! I know. CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES AS BIG AS YOUR HEAD!!! AND TOTALLY DELICIOUS!!!
And then, LOOK WHAT HAPPENED!!!!!
YES!!! THAT IS A COOKIE THIEF IF EVER I SAW ONE!!!
LOOK AT THE GUILTY FACE!!!
THE THIEF SAID IT WAS ONE COOKIE, AND HER BITE MADE A HEART SHAPE!!!!
WE DIDN'T BUY IT!!!
Our local forensics team found THAT THE PIECES DIDN'T MATCH!!!
SHEESH!!! SOME EXCUSE!!!
THANKS, Carol and Christine, for always being SEW thoughtful!!!
Sue, make sure you have a good lawyer!!!
I am late! It's been a busy week and all of a sudden, due to poor prep on my part, I've not got a blog post!!!!
So we're going to make lemonade out of this lemon!!!
NOW, that's what I'm talking about!!!!
How about putting a little 'SPRING' into your decor? Maybe a Valentine's mood? There is still plenty of time.
"HOW?" YOU ASK...
Here is a variation on the WORLD FAMOUS "10-minute Table Runner".
Do be sure to check out the video.
VIDEO SEW EASY TO MAKE WITH BIG RESULTS!
Sue has the pattern on hand and some absolutely stunning fabrics that should put a little 'SPRING' in your step for very little cost.
Maybe you like to celebrate Valentine's Day!
10 minutes to make? YOU'VE STILL GOT PLENTY OF TIME!!!
(Okay, maybe 15 minutes if you got the fabric all ready to go!!)
THIS will not be the case!!
WHAT A FLUKE!!!
I'M NOT SURE HOW I CAME ACROSS THIS, BUT I DID!!! IT WAS ON YOU TUBE!!!
See if you recognize anyone!!!
SO THEN WHEN YOU DIG A LITTLE BIT FURTHER, YOU COME UP WITH THIS, WHICH WAS ALSO FOUND ON YOU TUBE!!
YOU WILL RECOGNIZE SO MANY MEMBERS OF OUR QUILTING FAMILY!!!
EVERYONE LOOKS PRETTY DARN HAPPY!!!!
AND THOSE GREEN BAGS!!!! YOU JUST KNOW THEY ARE CHOCK FULL OF GOODIES FROM SUE!!!
BUS TOURS ROCK!!!!!
JUST LOOK AT WHAT YOU CAN FINE ONLINE!!!
The weather has been dreadful lately... even for skiers!! Truly! If the weather is so nasty that roads are closed, you cannot get to the ski hills! BUT, the good news is that the days are getting longer, and we really only have a couple more weeks before we may start to see signs of Spring. One can hope.
With that in mind, I thought it might be nice to get thinking about the outdoors and quilts! We all know about the Barn Quilts and how popular they have become. You may think, "They're so charming. I wish I had a barn."
Well, you do not need to live on a farm or own a barn in order to participate. Think about a patio.... even if it is an apartment balcony! You might want something on your wall OR maybe it could be the top of a side table. The possibilities are endless.
Here are some ideas....
The above photo looks like it might the side of a house.
Okay, so this lovely farm gate may not be something you can do, but the size of the blocks are certainly possible. Apparently this is a farm just outside of Ilderton, Ontario. That's near London!
Sorry, Cammy! London, O N T A R I O, C A N A D A
Awwww, gee whiz, Cammy!!! Don't sweat it!!!
(Sometimes you feel sorry for her, don't you?)
Okay, still more rural.... but think "GARDEN SHED"!
How about thinking "TABLE TOP"?
I wish I could give credit to the owners of these photos, but I stole them off Pinterest and we all know that is such a rabbit hole. Sorry to whoever has the rights to these photos. They are not the property of thimbles & things. Come and get me.
Actually, take Sue. I'm busy managing thimbles & things!!!
The drawer!!! It's full of thimbles AND things. It's at my house!!!! Sheesh!!! You had better read the previous post!!!
Well, that was quite a sale!!!! I think everyone had a great time and an awful lot of MEGA deals were found.
2017 PROMISES TO BE AN EVEN GREATER YEAR AS WE HAVE A VERY BIG ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE!!!!
YOU KNOW, SUE... WE TALKED ABOUT IT...
YES, IT'S TRUE!!! I AM NOW A MANAGER AT THIMBLES & THINGS!!!!!
AS A NEW MANAGER AT THIMBLES & THINGS, ALL QUILTERS CAN NOW LOOK FORWARD TO EVEN BIGGER SALES AND MORE FREQUENT SALES!!!!
DAILY SALES! DAILY BIG SAVINGS!!!
I KNOW, EH...
IT'S ALL SEW EXCITING... MY HEAD IS JUST SPINNING WITH PLANS FOR THE YEAR AHEAD!!!!
WHAT IS IT, SUE?
WELL, WE DISCUSSED IT... YOU AND I... I AM THE MANAGER OF THIMBLES & THINGS!!!
Okay, not the actual shop "thimbles & things"...
Yes, that's right... it's a drawer....
Yes, that's right. It's a drawer that is full of thimbles and things....
Yes, it is a drawer full of thimbles and things, and it is at my house....BUT I AM THE MANAGER OF IT!!
...okay, but we still have a GREAT YEAR AHEAD!!!!!!
BYE BYE, SUE!!!!
Okay, it's time to get quilting!!!
AND I'VE GOT A DRAWER TO MANAGE!!!
Looking forward to a GREAT 2017!!!
GUESS WHO ALREADY HAS HER TOWN AND COUNTRY QUILT COMPLETED!!!!
ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL!!!!
AMAZING NOT ONLY BECAUSE THIS GAL HAS COMPLETED TOWN AND COUNTRY, BUT HER 365 IS JUST ABOUT FINISHED AS WELL. YES, THAT IS CORRECT!!!! THIS QUILTER COMPLETED TWO BLOCK A DAY PROJECTS FOR 2016!!!!! WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL DECEMBER 31ST FOR HER TO GET ALL OF THOSE BLOCK PATTERNS VIA EMAIL IN ORDER FOR HER TO FINISH THAT ONE.
WHO IS THIS AMAZING QUILTER?
No prize for correct answer.... just PRIDE in getting it right!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
Later gators... see you in 2017!!

Sarah asks, "Do you you love it?"
OH WE SURE DO, SARAH!!!!
Quilters, there is no need to panic. As you may have noticed, we have oodles of "GREENERY" fabric at the shop. There is now reason to believe we can expect more!
As the saying goes, this is a
QUILTERS! TAKE NOTE!!!

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
Major John McCrae, May, 1915, Canadian Military Doctor from Guelph, ON
We hope you take time today to remember those who have sacrificed so much...
Could it be? Do we have a new quilter among us?
