We are going to do this.....

I don't make New Year Resolutions....however....I do try to make a few plans.  And one of my main plans this year is to keep this blog up and running.  Whether us "oldsters" like it or not, the internet is a big part of everyone's life.  We are all so busy it is hard to take the time to go visit friends, so we keep up with them on Twitter, Facebook, blogs and e-mail.  And whereas nothing can take the place of seeing someone in person, I really enjoy reading blogs and visiting people all of the world on the internet.

So for all of you that can't come by Mama's Quilt Shop on a daily or weekly basis to have a cup of coffee and check up on the latest fabric and notions coming in....get yourself a cup of coffee or tea and sit back and read all about it.   B2 (I call her that because Brenda One is the owner of the quilt shop) has agreed to help me keep this thing up to date and fun to read.

I also let her talk me into the "Take 2" quilt along...but that is another thing altogether.  It was a weak moment! 

We are excited about our new Saturday programs we are putting together.  The first Saturday of every month we will have an embroidery group.  We will have a small project that will be finished in 3 to 4 hours so that "newbies" can feel like they are accomplishing something and us "oldsters" can just have fun helping them.

We are going to have a special program on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Saturday of every month (we are working on those and will post as soon as we get all the details worked out), but we guarantee they will be fun and hopefully finished in 3 to 4 hours each time.  We are looking at a Thimbleberrie's Club (to try all the new projects in the new book, "Pattern Party"), a Cupcake Caper Club that works on a block featuring cupcakes and the recipe to bake them and a gift club that makes small and unique gifts in a few hours.

Brenda One is getting in new fabrics, making up new samples and she just finished up an inventory reduction sale to end the year (sorry if you missed out on that).  So watch for our updates here and come on by!
Henry says he was a very good boy!  Thanks Santa!
