I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

sample anyone?


Here are the first 2 samples DH dropped off at Jan’s shop today. He is on his way to get DS from college. He finished his last final about an hour ago. He’s all packed and ready to come home. He’s been so anxious. You would think he missed us or something. ;c)

Ohhh -- how fun. The idea of being able to go help purchase fabric for a quilt store is one that gives me tingles :-). Those samples are fantastic and I'm sure they will have people lining up to purchase!

thanks for stopping by my blog-I love these samples-how big are they? Beautifully done. We spend 10 days in Maine every year-where is your friends shop? I tend to save up my pennies to spend on fabric store side trips then.

Pretty samples. It has been an especially tough year for college students. I am sure he is anxious for the safety of his home and family! And maybe the fridge!
