WANTED: 6 More Hours A Day!

Please excuse my very long absence, Dear Reader!  I hesitate to give you the reason for not posting regularly of late because I'll sound like a broken record.....but it's the truth none the less......TIME!  "Life" kept getting in the way of a lot of things.  Oh how I wish for more time in a day, a week, a lifetime.  Hoping you'll forgive me as I'm almost certain you can empathize!

As I look back to my last post, we enjoyed some of the new fabrics coming soon from Marcus Brothers.  Today, I want to finish up with two new collections coming from Windham. 

Indigo by Windham

First, take a look at Indigo.  These lovely prints in blues and neutrals will be a wonderful addition to your collection.  I so love making two-color quilts and there's some real winners here, don't ya think?

General's Wives by Nancy Gere for Windham
These are the fabrics from the General's Wives collection designed by Nancy Gere.  I have been a fan of Nancy's collections for a long time and she has done it again!  They sure do have that classic vintage look, don't they?

Truth be told, there are a couple of prints missing from the photos as I've already used them in a two of new Prairie Women's Sewing Circle club ~ Journey Three quilts.  They were so perfect for what I needed!  I want to buy yardage of quite a few of them, and anxiously await their arrival at my local quilt shop.  Perhaps you'll see a few you can't live without, too!  To see the entire line of the General's Wives click here

Last week, I met my dear pal, Lynne Hagmeier (Kansas Troubles Quilters), in Iowa to sew a bit and spend some good girlfriend time together eating, antiquing, and catching up.  I took some fun pictures and I'll share them with you in my next post.  I promise it won't take me as long to post again!

Thank you for visiting with me (and for not giving up on me!) ......Pam
