New fabrics, threads and stitching........

The above photo is the fabrics I purchased recently at the Bittersweet Quilts shop. This shop is wonderful. She has over 2000 bolts of fabric and the owner is so very helpful. I have signed up to take a quilting class this fall. She also sells Presencia threads, which are made in Spain. I purchased 6 skeins of this thread, all in Fall colors, so am anxious to stitch up a Fall design and try these threads out.

I have been doing some cleaning and sorting, trying to get my small bedroom made into a craft room, and I came across the above chart I was stitching on back in 2006. I believe I was working on this chart while I was down with my hip replacement and broken femur bone. It was a free Quaker design by Carinne and was given out in six parts. I have all of the motif designs, but there is a border on the top, which I don't have. If anyone is familiar with this design, perhaps you have stitched it or just have the chart, would you mind to share the top part with me. I would very much like to finish this design.
Wayne and I are off to Kansas City tomorrow for a day trip with the Freeman Advantage group that we travel with. We are going to have lunch at Union Station and see a 1 p.m. matinee Always...Patsy Cline. This will be at the Crown Center American Heartland Theatre.
It is still ~ HOT ~ here, hope everyone is staying cool.

Hi Barbara,

Your fabric is gorgeous, and I can just imagine how fun 2000 bolts must be! I love your threads. You can even see from your picture that they are luxurious.

I sent you an email with a PDF attachment for the complete Quaker Six Mains sampler (including the border). Yours is looking pretty!

Great quilt stash Barbara! I am trying to comment from our cottage. Jos has me connected on his phone. Hope it works. Ask Diane if she still has the chart if you cannot find it. We did it as a SAL on the stitching list. I don'thave it any longer.

Hugs ~

As soon as the chilly winds Abercrombie Polos initially start to blow every year as autumn sets in; people go to their closets Abercrombie Polos and pull out their sweaters dog coats and ed hardy Hats jackets to ensure that they are comfortable as the temperature drops. Your Ed Hardy Sale dog deserves this equal treatment so when you pull out yours, do Ed Hardy Sale remember to pull out your dog's warm dog clothes as well.If the night is chilly, but Ed Hardy Swimwear not quite freezing, even something as Ed Hardy Swimwear simple as a warm dog sweater will help you to keep your dog warm.
