Sharing a Few of our Favorite Things!

The little packages keep coming in the mail, and Rick keeps slitting open the envelopes and leaving them for me to find.  I bring them out to the shop, then, and price them and leave them for customers to come and find. I am having such a good time with this new adventure in my life.

Some of you might remember that I am in a "mind-mapping" group of artists with Rick; led by a wonderful facilitator, Marci August. We sit together and share our goals and dreams and come up with valid, purposeful plans and strategies for achieving what we have dreamed. A few months ago, before we opened the quilt shop, the group focused on helping me realize what the center of my business plan was. What was in the center of the map we had formulated from my activities and efforts? A single phrase: BE HAPPY. That is the desired result that all of my goals are pointing toward. That is the focus of my wishes, my newest goal. It is achievable. It is a truth in my life.Is it a valid business plan's desired result? You bet it is!

Here are some more items that have arrived or are on their way to Quilters' Quarters, gradually filling the beautiful cabinets Rick has added to our shop::

Eight yards of Timeless Treasures: "Lighthouses"

One yard of Fabric Visions: "Curious"

We also have a new supply of fat quarters from our friend Ann Lainhart. In addition to those individual, beautiful 9" x 44" pieces of fabric, Ann has put together bundles of "eight fat eighths" ... fabric cuts in a color family, each of which  measure 9" x 22", and so total to a full yard of coordinating fabrics.
