Whew! and

putting it all away…. may take days.

Ready-to-go  

The Quilters Day Out was only 6 hours from open to close and I was busy pretty much the whole time. Not even time to take a picture!!!

They INVENTORY did not decrease as I would have liked.

Everything from setup to take down took a bit longer to get done, because well this part of Kentucky has been nothing but gray skies and COLD or RAIN for the past 6 weeks or so. Lots and lots of rain… so much so that the landscape has taken on a dramatically watery vista.


Today we have the beautiful glow from actual sunshine and a cloudless sky. Temperatures have warmed up so much that the hyacinth is up, both the hybrid and the wild variety that is growing in the lawn, the maple (silver) has bloomed and my lilac is leafing, as is the hydrangea. I also see the day lilies showing some green sprouts too. Of course it is pretty early for this, so hopefully they won’t be stunted by a surprise snow in March.

Ready-to-putup

I will be spending the next few days unpacking the boxes of stock and marking it down so I can modernize the store. Are there items that you are interested in or think would be a good fit for I HAVE A NOTION? Please help me out with how I can better meet your needs, since it will benefit both of us!!!

Look for the Markdowns in the Inventory Reduction Category coming soon.

Seriously it must go.

If you see something you really really want email me with an offer… of course the more you want…

So Seriously, Lets TALK!!!


More Later, Beth

Under the Gathering of the Guilds part, local Quilt Guilds come to recruit/entice new membership and share some of the interests and projects that their membership does, including demonstrations.

The Quilters Day Out part of course is the venders mall, which is where I Have a Notion will be.

So if you are attending… Please stop and say hi!


More Later…(after I have put things away and taken a long nap!!!)  Beth

Setting The Record Straight

First, I did survive vending at the Kaleidoscope of Quilts in Sylvania this past Friday and Saturday. There were times I wasn't sure I'd be able to walk on my own accord....but I made it! Setting up a booth entails hauling tons of stuff and I was short a few tanks and military personnel. 

There were two huge highlights for me.  The first was being able to see lots of friends and receiving so many loving hugs. 

The second....this is the part where I'm setting the record straight....and a wee bit of the background story.

When my Mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and was told she had 4-6 months to live in February,  I was beside myself....naturally.  My girlfriend, Diane, asked if there was anything she could do to help.  The very first thing that came to mind was "Momma's Quilt."  She had selected the fabric (from my stash) and the pattern and I was going to make her a quilt for her birthday, May 25.  I asked Diane if she could ask some of our mutual friends if they would be willing to help with the quilt for my mother.  Within an hour of sending the e-mail....she had lots of help.  In 3....yes THREE days...."Momma's Quilt" was made.  I asked Diane to leave off the binding so I could do the stitching thus having a part in making the quilt. 

Diane wanted to enter the quilt in the Kaleidoscope of Quilts as a group quilt but somehow the label does not indicate who the real winners of the First Place ribbon belongs to.
 The TRUE WINNERS of the First Place Ribbon belong to the following amazing ladies:
Diane Giveins (she made the beautiful label too)
Sandy Dallas
Marty Deer
Carol Eiben
 Linda Hill 
Joan Jaffray 
Nancy Lee White
Peggy Mlynek
Ellen Snyder 
Lynda Torres
and Dale Burnett who did a beautiful job long arm quilting "Momma's Quilt."

"Momma's Quilt" hung in the back left corner at the show, a perfect place because I felt as though it was somehow sacred space....like Momma was there with me.  She was able to enjoy her quilt for almost 8 weeks before she passed.  I don't think I could express my gratitude enough for the gift these ladies gave to me....the ability to give my Mother her birthday present. 

In my mind, these ladies are truely the:


With huge smiles of gratitutde,
Kelly
