What? Did you say snow day? I think you meant sew day! There was a time when the perfect powdery snowfall like the one we received yesterday, was a signal to load up the skis and head for the slopes. Now that winter wind whispers something different... "Girl, you best stay inside in your jammies and SEW ALL DAY LONG!" I have never been one to argue with a storm, however, some days it's just not possible to heed the call. Yesterday's to-do list was filled with errands and post-holiday housework. I texted my hard-working husband to tell him, "I just don't want to do it all today" and he lovingly reminded me that sometimes adulting is no fun and the grocery store could wait if it meant I was finding joy. Sewing seemed but a dream and the day was over before I knew it. I didn't take a stitch. But there's still snow on the ground this morning and my happy place still calls so I guess you know where you can find me. There is no clock on the wall in my sewing room and there never will be.
"So come with me where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land." -Peter Pan. A dreamy palette brings two whimsical Peter Pan themed fabric collections together into one fantastic quilt. You'll find Peter and Wendy, John and Michael, Captain Hook and Mr. Smee... even the crocodile has been fussy cut to fit into the windows of this 70" x 90" fairy tale quilt made by Stacey Giles and appropriately named Second Star to the Right. The pattern, Marquee, comes from one of our best selling books, Fat Quarter Style. It's available here at the shop along with kits! Magical machine quilting by Ramona Sorensen.
