What's new @Quilters Depot!

We only had one new fabric come in this week!

So you get to see the panel and then you will get to see what we made from it.

These are going to FLY out of the store.  Come get them quickly!  Check out how when you piece the blocks the tree is created!  Add your favorite color and you have a great item!  You will want more than one to make for gifts!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Sunday All!

I have not picked up a knitting needle all week!  By the time I get done at work, get to my apartment, and get ready for bed I sit and read or watch tv.  Just don't have the motivation to work on my ornaments

However, during the week I finished month 7 of my Elegant Elements BOM.  Here are just a couple of the blocks I have been working on.


I have put on a quilt on the Avante at the store.  My mom made a new quilt for my brother's house and I need to get it quilted.  Want to do a cool design on it so that's the project for next week and probably the only one!  lol

Hope you are all staying cool!

This week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

I have been working on month 7 of my BOM!

I finished one of my ornaments but did not take a pic.  I know I'm horrible!

That's about all.  I know what a boring week!

Hopefully you had a better one than me!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all

I finished Month 5 of the Elegant Elements and am really close to finishing Month 6!

I never picked up my knitting all week!  I should be ashamed!

So that is the sum total of my week!  I know boring!

Maybe next week will be more exciting!

Make sure you keep reading your emails so you know what is happening this week!  I'm going to take the week off from blogging!  Nothing new came in and I don't think anyone came in with any finished items. (is that better than saying I didn't check the camera?).  I think we call this the dog days of summer!

Have a great week and talk to you next Sunday!

This week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

So what did I do this week?

Hmmmmm.  I started a new Laura Nelkin Ornament, but I didn't get far enough to take a picture.

I worked on Month 5 of the Elegant Elements.  I have one more block to do but I of course left the harder ones for last and my brain hasn't been doing the thing concentration well this week!

I went to the Regatta for about a half hour on Friday.  Here are a couple pictures from the sand sculpture!





See I do other stuff than just store related!
