This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Yes I left you all down last week and did not give you any blog posts.

It's the same ole stuff anyhow.  Just working.  Onyx not letting me knit.  Oh wait the Pens REPEATED!  I spent way too much money on tshirts.  Have you checked out our window?

Here is a pic of the wildlife I encountered when I was out walking this week.  I think this little family might have been what made Demon Cat came out the other night at 1:30am...........lol


That's about it!

Hi all!

I am soooooo close to being done with my friend's slippers.  i just have to do the sole and then connect them.  This could take me a night or it could take me a month............lol  So I missed her birthday by a couple of weeks.

Or the fact my other friend is going to get her gift still on the needles in three weeks.........lol

I know you all understand.

So to distract you here's a picture of Mr Onyx aka Demon Cat, aka I will not let you knit Cat!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all

I have absolutely nothing to tell you this week!

I long armed two quilts.  One for a customer and one for mom.

I did finish month two of the Charmed adventures sampler.

Was that enough for you to enjoy reading?  lol

Have a great week!  You won't hear from me for the rest of it!

I've gotta get stuff done this week so I have something to post about!

Success Story @Quilters Depot!

I only have one for you this week.

Both projects are PeggyW's!

The first is a quilt as you go quilt from PeggyG's class.  I of course love the front but look at that awesome back!



Check out Peggy's other project.  I really wish the NHL wasn't so freaking greedy and would let some real quilt stores sell their fabrics.

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Mother's Day out there to all you mothers!  This includes those who are Pet Mama's too.

I won't be seeing my eldest furry children today because instead of me going to visit Mom I've invited her and Dad to my apartment for dinner.  So you all should pray for my family and their stomachs today.........hahahahaha

Instead I have decided that Onyx will have to wear his bowtie to dress himself up for the occasion!

What did I do this week?  Hmmmmm  I quilted my Elegant Elements Quilt and Beth is almost finished doing the binding for me.  I have to decide if it's going to become the newest decoration in my apartment or if it's going to hang in the store or be given away.

Other than that Onyx has not let me knit.  I am running out of time for a few friends birthday gifts.  Maybe I will get some done.

Finally, Let's Go Pens!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

What a rainy weekend.  Nothing much new to tell you.  I think I finished one embroidery block on my Charmed Adventure BOM.

I did some knitting but i'm not far enough along on any of the projects to show.

I mentioned last weekend that I was going to do some planting of flowers.

Maybe this will brighten your Sunday!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Afternoon!

So I spent most of my week at the Three Rivers Quilt Show out at the Meadows Casino this week!
Below is a picture of our booth.  Our concentration was that we were demo'ing the Handi Quilters!  I think a lot of ladies had a lot of fun driving the machines


This week will be spent putting stuff back together in my office and working on the next newsletter.  Get some of it done in spurts and then it all doesn't have to be done on one day!

Today brings a nice walk in the summer wether and then i'm going to do some gardening.  I am now an owner of a goldfish plant, a spider plant, catnip seeds and i think one or two other things.  I'll take a pic of my patio if i get it finished.  there are a few more things i want for my patio.  We will see if it happens or not.

May to December Romance Block Swap!

May to December
Romantic Block Swap!

Hosted by Beth Rossana 

Sign up by April 30th!  TIME IS RUNNING OUT!  WE NEED AT LEAST TWO MORE PEOPLE TO HAVE THIS WORK!

What is it?  A quilt block exchange!  Each month, May through December, a different participating quilter will select a block they would like made for them.  When it is your month, or two depending on number of quilters who join in, you send the directions and color preferences to the hostess, and she will then send it out to everyone.  On or before the 25th of the month, you will receive blocks made from the other participants.
The other months, you agree to make a block for someone else.  At the end, everyone should have 9 blocks to make a project.
This is a 9 month commitment.  There is a one time cost of $30 to cover supplies if you do not make a block.  Participants acknowledge that everyone does not have the same skill level and keep that in mind when choosing a block.  

Swap blocks will need to be mailed or brought to the store by the 25th of each month.  If you have any questions,  feel free to contact Beth at the store.  Or call anytime to join the fun!!!

This week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Sunday!

I think I have to be one of the most boring people of all time!

I have absolutely nothing to tell you.  I don't even think I have any cute pet pictures.

I have been knitting.  The first is still the felted slippers.  The second I can't show you because it's a friends birthday gift...............lol

Oh well.  I think it's going to be a nice warm week!  We have the Air on so come on in and fondle the fabrics!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

I really did not do a darn thing this week.  I did do a 100x100 long arm job but other than that i'm not sure where the week went.

I have two goals this spring.  One to walk more.  I talk about this in the news newsletter that you will all see next Friday!  My goal is to walk on the evenings I make it home before it's dark even if I made it to the gym.

My other goal is to develop a Green Thumb.  I bought a click and grow from amazon.  Yes I have an amazon problem.  It's basically a flourescent light and it's suppose to grow things.  I plugged it in this morning.  My pods are basil.  We will see.  If the sprout I will take a picture..........lol

Nothing else is really new.  Have a great week and stop in and buy stuff!

Hurry and get these!  There are only 3 of each and as of Saturday when we closed there are less!  The pictures do not do these justice.  You have to finger through them!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Ok I admit it I don't think i did ANYTHING this week.

the nights i had off my cat would not let me knit.  So since I have a guilt complex with my furry children I just let him sit on my lap instead of knitting.

We will try again this week!

Stay warm!  Hopefully spring will return before we talk again!
