WHAT'S HAPPENING?

I HAVE BEEN AWFULLY QUIET IN THIS CORNER OF THE WORLD……..BECAUSE

 

I have been busy with  this fabric.

The Bejeweled sweat shop is closed today!

 

but I have to tell you!!!!!!  Another one bites the dust!


As of today, I sucked another innocent party into the sewing and fabric world.

 

All I have to say to her husband is to hang on to his wallet...HA!!!!

Cute Cute (young) gal at church wants to learn to quilt.  While visiting her last month I suggest that she learn to quilt.  Her husband is away during the week and she needs something to fill in the gap.  Here was my chance....

I jumped on this like a piece of thread to my nice outfit!

We plan to go fabric shopping this week.  Did I tell you she is cute?  She has an adorable little son.

All I have to say to that is "CHARGE IT!"

Good for you! Cleaning up and converting someone to be a quilter. You will have so much fun helping her shop for fabrics. Can't wait to see your secret project. You need to talk more, I miss you when you are so quiet.

Aha! And I know what jewels of advice you will be giving her.....how to get the fabric from the mailbox or UPS man's hands, without hubby seeing it.....how to keep the growing stash hidden....heehee!
Isn't it fun to "mentor" someone into the community? Can't wait to see what you've been working on!
