In, Out and About

Just a quick post:  I visited with the quilters at Piney Hills Quilt Guild in Ruston yesterday and what a treat that was. 

Shellie Blake, manager of The Fabric Shop was the guest speaker and WoW....did she have a lot to tease us with.   More than the fat quarters and jelly rolls and charm packs and quilt kits (and there was plenty of that eye-candy)

but it was also about aprons:  "My Girlfriends Breakfast Club"  by Kimberbell Designs....a free PDF pattern from You Can Make This.Com.  Thank you so much Kay for finding this pattern for us.  You are the greatest. 

 and E-Reader or I-Pod covers

and lots of other good stuff such as unique fabrics, patterns and thread! 

Piney Hills is gearing up for the upcoming Chicken Festival in Dubach
here's the proof of what's to come!

Marilyn....these are two darn cute chicken blocks.  Sorry Shirley....the camera blurred your little jewel of a chick!  Well, perhaps it wasn't the camera, but the person behind the camera that caused the blur. You'll have to make that decision yourself (but be kind). 

There was more show and tell.....much more.  But, guess what?  I've set us up a North Louisiana Quilters FLICKR photostream.  I've put the link on the sidebar to make the visit easy..... Go see and ask to join so you can add your pictures too.  If you don't already have a Flickr account, just set one's easy and it's free (up to a limit)!  What???? life does have it's limits and time is one of them, so I'm out of here.  Have a safe and happy weekend. 



  1. After searching around the internet I found that adorable little apron pattern for free. Here is the site where it can be found:

  2. Thanks Kay for the apron web link. We would love you to become a NLQG blog follower and also post your quilt pictures in the new Flickr group. Great seeing you Thursday.
