Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

Besides dying pot after pot of wool for the last three days, I have been working on a new sample.  Here is a little sneak peak.  Yes, it's a new Cheri pattern.

I hope I can show you the whole thing by the end of the day tomorrow.

Remember on Saturday is the Carolina One Stop Shop Hop in Lancaster, South Carolina!

It will be open from 9 to 4.  It is being held in the Bradley Building on the Univ. of South Carolina - Lancaster campus.  I would just put USC-L (as it is referred to here on the East Coast but it may confuse some people that live in a slightly larger state on the West Coast!)

There will be 19 vendors including at least 7 full-size quilt shops and plenty of smaller specialty vendors including me, a yarn shop with yarn from their own alpacas, a featherweight machine dude, the White House (owned by Jim Shore and family), a vintage textile booth, a lady that hand turns (woodworking) neat quilting gadgets like seam rippers, etc.  Something for everyone!  

With the price of gas, it's a real deal ..... visiting 19 shops at one time with just one trip.  Come with a carload of your quilting buds and save even more!

Blessings, Cathi

Can't wait to see the end result of your new design.
There are so many shows happening that are so far out of my reach. Sounds like fun!

I just picked up that pattern last night . . . . didn't have ANY business doing so, what will all the UFO's around here. But then again that has never stopped me before. Working hard to finish up a couple of nearly completes so I can move on.
Hope you have a FAB show this weekend. I do hope that style of show gains popularity in this area.

The shop hop in one place is a brilliant idea. Time never lets me get to all the shops in my area but I will make a special trip if I learn of a new good one. Having them in one venue would give me a chance to learn about those I don't visit on a regular basis.
