New fabrics!

This is has some wonderful pops of color that can be added to or toned down with some solids! I have 10" square packs that can give you a great assortment of prints!

This is beautiful. Has a definite Asian feel to it with a touch or gold metallic. Really stunning in person.

This is a totally fun series. Do you need a quilt for the camper? Maybe a picnic blanket for a wedding gift? This would be perfect! And so fun!!! I also have this in 5" and 10" square packs so lots of option to use a quick pattern to whip up what you need!

This line is called Pearl Essence and I have a sample quilt in the store made of this. It has a pearl effect in the design and each piece catches the light just a bit. It is very effective and could make any table runner or quilt very elegant. Come on in and check it out.

APPLES!!

Okay this may seem not so unusual, there are apples growing all over town! But this is at the store in a pot!! This little tree that is one stalk and a few little branches has about 7 apples that are so big they will not fit through the holes in that chain link fence! He arrived this spring full of blossoms and was so pretty! Then he started growing his fruit! I'm so proud of this little guy that I don't even want to pick these apples! Customers often ask when these fruit trees will start to produce fruit and the rule of thumb is that they will be into full production at 7 years. Of course, when you buy them at this size they are already a few years old, but this guy is far from being 7 years old and he still put in a valiant effort. Worthy of an Olympic gold!!

Fairy Gardens!!!!

The garden centre is being invaded by fairies! They are making gardens everywhere!
