What's New @Quilters Depot!

Happy Monday.

As you read this I am on my way to my acupuncture session!  If you suffer from almost anything; acupuncture is great.  I have fibromylgia and some days I just HURT!  Well, I have started going to an Acupuncturist over on Willow Ave and she is great!

After just one session I was able to lay on the hip I had not been able to in over a year!  It totally loosened my back up also.  And before you ask.  No it doesn't hurt......lol

So what is new @ the Depot this week.  We have the first shipment of flannels!  These are priced wayyyyy under $10 so you cannot beat the price if you are wanting to do a cuddly backing or make yourself or your grandchild a great pair of pajama pants!  We have some prints still to come in and I think a few more solids that should be due in this month!


We also got these new moda marble colors in for your viewing/quilting pleasure.  One is Chartruese and one is called Green Apple!  


Talk to all of you tomorrow!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

It's Monday and we have some GREAT new fabrics.

First up is the Sesame Street!  Look at those primary colors!  I so want one of these panels but since I have no little ones in my life it would be stash and as much as I tell you stash is good I can't buy one because then there would be less for YOU!  lol


Next up is the New Boyd's Bear Panel and fabrics!  Check out our new window display where my bears are sewing!

Finally, we got the newest new notion in.  These are a very sharp seam ripper and the other side is used to pull out the loose threads!  It is flying out of the display already!  That middle row is almost gone already!  Price is below $10!


Come in and check out all our new stuff!

This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Happy Sunday all!

I wrestled a quilt that I was long arming this morning.  (sigh) there are some days you probably should just not quilt.......lol

Here is the link for This Week @Quilters Depot

Now I will admit I did not do a lot of knitting this week, but I did promise you I'd finish my shrug!  Well I did!  I still have to do the weaving of the ends but will get those tonight.  I think I will wear it to work on Tuesday!

I did work on a friend's birthday gift.  A wallhanging I'm making her but it's not done yet either.

There's a theme........UFO's...........lol  Yes, I have too many of them!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Well, not much came in last week.

I will give you a heads up in about a month or sooner we will be flooded with flannels!!!!!!!

Solids and kid prints!  Make great backings for quilts or maybe some pajama pants or other cuddly things.  That's your tease for now.

We did some notion restocking last week, but that's about it.

Now an item from What's New from a couple weeks ago was finally opened by me.

If you are a Clover notions fan like we all are @Quilters Depot.  You will love this new notion!  I am giving you a preview of my August Happy Hour!  So if you like what you see come in because you know my classes and happy hours are few and far between!

First here is a picture of the new (January 2012) Clover Basket Frames!  There are more shapes and sizes.  I promise to have them all in by August!


Next we have Abbie trying to help me make my basket!  These baskets are GREAT stash busters in yarn or fabric.  My next job is to do one in fabric so you can see the difference!


Ignore my legs!  Abbie was a big help weaving in the yarn and making sure everything was coming together correctly.......lol

And lastly, here is a picture of my completed basket.  I will admit the yarn is about 30 years old I am using.  You know how it is with stash whether fabric or yarn.  We cannot get rid of it!

Aren't they cute little boxes.  I made the smallest one thinking I can store pencils in at or gift cards at the store.  It's not the greatest picture.  You will have to come to my Happy Hour to see it close up!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Happy Sunday!

Well It's still hot but 84 is much nicer than 90+!

Last week I failed you all with not pictures.  Today you get pictures!

First thought here is the link for the newest This Week @  Hurry and Register!  Alot of classes start this week including Quilting 101!.  Want to make an E-Reader?  Sign up now!  Classes are next week!

Ok.  in the world of knitting.  I made another cup cozy.  I am on hiatus from these until I buy my new clover knitting needles that are a 9" cable.  I hope to be able to knit these tiny things in a round so I dont' have a seam.  Hopefully by next weekend I have these knitting needles in and my set bought!

My friends if they read this blog should start a contest to see if they can tell when I post Christmas gifts who they belong to......lol

This one is made from the new Team Spirit yarn we have in the store.  If you cannot tell this is Green and Yellow.  We also have orange and black, red and black, blue and yellow, and this yellow and green.  I hope to also make a monkey for this cozy's new owner from the same yarn.

The other thing I have been knitting is my pink shrug!  I think I might just get this done to wear this summer!
And that is a design element on the front of the shrug.  I'm sticking to that story no matter what you tell me.  So I only have it on one side of the shrug........lol  Actually maybe you can't even see it's there .  Only have a few more rows of the bottom to do.  Then i need to do the inner ribbing and the sleeves!  I just hope it fits or someone might get an early birthday gift who is just alot more skinny in the arms than I am.......lol


I did do one more project this week, but you will have to wait until tomorrow.  There is also a surprise guest in tomorrow's blogs.  Abbie makes her return!  That might get you through your Monday!
