OKAY.... SORRY ABOUT THAT..... September 10 2014
I'M BACK IN THE.....
This has been a very busy September so far, and it's not going to end anytime soon!!!
BUSY IS GOOD!!!
NOT THAT KIND OF BUSY!
This kind of busy....
That was quite the storm that hit last Friday! I sure hope all of our quilters are safe and sound with no ill effects. Boy oh boy! Hail in the afternoon with monsoon winds and rain in the evening. Well, I've actually never experienced a monsoon, but I can only imagine!
Before we go any further, I've got to touch on this other bit of exciting Orillia news. I heard it from a very good source (the news) that the Zehr's in town sold the winning ticket for last Friday's Lotto Max draw for 50 MILLION DOLLARS!!!! That is just about enough to buy Oprah's house in California....
My understanding is the winner would still need another 10 or so million to purchase this place.
Awwww, who needs to live in California anyway? Especially if you're a quilter for crying out loud!!!!
50 MILLION DOLLARS WOULD SURE GO A LONG WAY AT THIMBLES & THINGS....
...particularly this month
THIS MONTH'S COUPON IS FOR 25% OFF ROTARY BLADES!!!!

Don't use a dull blade! You're just asking for quilting woes. Get over to the shop and stock up! The coupon is good until the end of September. Please keep this in mind. We are already 10 days into the month! Can you believe it?
There are only 105 days until....
Oh CHILL-AX! You've got plenty of time!!!! And there is still a very nice selection of Xmas fabric at the shop!!
Some of the other interesting things Sue has recently brought into the shop is this very COOL line of fabric called "WHISPER" for Blue Underground Studios. Oh my! They are the most gorgeously subtle tones of green, purple, blues and taupes. I do mean subtle. AND ELEGANT!
Yes, there certainly is! The tones are muted and subtle and SEW dreadfully au courant!!!!
OH MY GOOD GRIEF!!! WE ARE GETTING SO COSMOPOLITAN!!!
Not only does Sue have this amazing line, but she's got the Blue Underground patterns to go with it.
YES, SHE DOES!!!!
Well, there has been so much to chat about, and this is just a wee bit of the "SEPTEMBER HAPPENINGS" at thimbles & things. Before I sign off, it's important to remember that next week is THEE 2014 International Plowing Match which is being held in Ivy, Ontario, just outside of Barrie.
Everyone should visit this very important expo. We are lucky to have it in Simcoe County this year. A huge display of quilts will be available for you to see... rain or shine! These are prize-winning, top-of-the-class quilts!!!
