What a fun week!

The beautiful weather has brought a humming. The redbud and dogwood trees in the Relics by the Railroad neighborhood are all out and blooming. The shop was buzzing with customers who were ready for new projects, classes with new techniques and busy little bees (quilting bees that is!) starting and finishing projects.
The Made to be Cancelled Bee met on Sunday- this is Tri-County Quilt Guild's postcard bee. 
Barbara welcomed new bee members Michelle and Rachael.  
They took full advantage of the beautiful weather to do some postcard painting on the porch, here Susi is teaching Laura and Rachael her technique.
On Wednesday the Tri-County's Spring Bee for beginner quilters had a paper piecing demo to add a new technique to their quilting "tool box".  They used a scrappy little heart for their first pattern. Nancy is hooked on the paper piecing now and has made 3 hearts already!

Deb was out sick a couple days this week with a cold so to welcome her back today we surprised her by making new valances for the classroom during free sew on Friday night.  We used the Mrs. Sew and Sew fabrics and they look really cute.  Thanks to my fellow Friday free sew ladies for helping me get them done Deb said it made her day when she saw them this morning!
