Lipstick Cowgirls & Cowboys in Newton Now!

Friday Oct 15, 2021

Hi all!

Happy International Day of RURAL WOMEN! Thank you for your critical role in producing food, contributing to food security in this country, and the world!

Growing up (in cities), I was always enamored of pioneer women who "settled the west". I read lots of books on the subject and was intriqued by the grand picnics, festivals, house parties & dances, despite their lives of everyday hardship. Girls have always known how to party!

Welcome LIPSTICK COWGIRL from Moda! COLLAGE is hot! I just love this fabric reproduction of Shari Jenkins' original artwork! BRIGHT, colorful, clever & funny.

Friday September 24, 2021

Hi all!

Hope you are enjoying these first few days of Fall. Lovely here in Kansas, so far.

For me this week was particularly fast. I almost forgot to write this newsletter!

Our annual CENTRAL KANSAS QUILT SHOP HOP starts in 6 days! Next week Thursday through Saturday, we'll be open 9 am to 8 pm, and on SUNDAY Oct 3 we'll be here 11 am to 4 pm.

Halloween, New Sampler Class Plus Binding Basics

August 27, 2021

Hi all!

Have  you made a big quilt lately?  Was it a "quickie", large, basic shapes, and not very challenging?  Ok, those can be great quilts, fine to give as a quick gift, but . . .

let's push you a bit with a sampler quilt.  Now don't be scared!  This isn't nearly as complicated as it looks!  No curved piecing.  All straight lines.  And it is rotary cut using acrylic templates.  The pieces fit together so well!  You can do this!

Hi all!

This time of year, the fruit coming to Kansas is finally decent!  For those of you in big cities, I think you take it for granted, but we don't!  I'm eating a peach a day, and fear the day the good supply ends!  I get so excited seeing the big containers of blueberries, that are just "cobbler in waiting".  hehehe

Far less delicious or fattening, but just as fun and inspiring, check out our FRUIT & VEGGIE

40 Years is A LOT of Vacations!


August 13, 2021

Hi all!

Happy Friday the 13th anniversary to my dh of 40 years! Randy & I were married in San Francisco City Hall, on a Thursday. I see that the New York Times recently did a story on couples who were married in that august venue, but they neglected chatting us up! Oh well, that story is for another time. It was an adventure! ;)

Today we are vacationing in Florida, where we have spent many happy anniversaries with family.
