Happy Mother's Day -- A Day of Rest

 Ah, it's Sunday and Mother's Day; a day of rest--just what I needed after this last hectic month.  

We opened Sewcial Studio sewing and quilt shop in mid-April and have been receiving fabric regularly; I'm also slowly learning QuickBooks for the business.  Two weeks ago I was at the Sew Free Retreat for 5 days as a vendor, then we were off to Mobile, AL and the Azalea City Quilt Guild to give a program and workshop this week.  Whew!

On Tuesday morning our house-sitter arrives and we are off to ALASKA for 8 glorious days!  Our younger son (the former soldier) has lived in Anchorage for a year and has just finished his first year at the University of Alaska.  The laptop is going with us, so I plan to  post some photos. 

For now, here are a few photos of fabrics we received this week and a sample made by Catherine Hart for the store...

 This next one is called Giraffe Love.  Adorable
 This may be the only bolt of really girlie fabric in the store, but it's lovely.
Catherine did a beautiful job on these tulips; the pattern is one of Big Fork Bay's collection.

I'll be leaving for Alaska as you're coming home...maybe we'll meet in one of the airports....Your shop/studio is lovely...

Judy, are you taking a cruise or staying land? If you take a cruise, you will probably come to the train station in Anchorage. Our hotel, the Anchorage Grand, is just above the train station (peach or tan colored building). It's a wonderful hotel with little apartments rather than rooms, like in Europe. Sure hope you enjoy Alaska as much as we have! Anita
