I have the best customers!…Jess called and told me we have over 100 people signed up for the block of the week in one day! That is a lot people for one day…I appreciate your constant patronage to our wonderful shop…It just makes me want to work harder! I need to tell you all what is also going on…I can’t sleep at night…just thinking about what we are going to do to make this a wonderful place for Quilter’s to hang out…On May 28th after we get home from Quilt Market we are supposed to close on this house below. It is on 1375 Racine St. Right down the street from the shop…about a half mile away…we think we will be able to house 12 guests at first…with room to expand if needed. It sits on almost an acre lot, with a big circle driveway….set back from the road. My mother has given her notice at her job, cooking for 25 retired brothers and priests, to help us out and cook for our quilters. She is going to be 63 and needs to quit anyway and take care of her daughter… There is lots to do…new roof, tear out a wall between the living room and family room, some broken windows, garage door apron needs to be repoured, lots of paint, flooring, bathroom counters, sinks, toilets and showers…who puts pink counters in a 15 year old house? I guess the same person who puts blue siding on their house…sorry if you have a baby blue house….I am getting used to it…I will have to decorate the outside with lots of red, white and blue. The backyard is huge with room for lots of gardens…and fruit trees…Mostly cosmetic things have to be done…so I am hoping it all get put together by September! Anyone need to get away? The Appleton Airport is less than 10 minutes away!
I live on a lake in beautiful Butte Des Morts, WI. I have three sons: Lance (forever 29), Luke 33, Jake 32, and two grand-babies, Little Man and O-Bug. I've been married to the love of my life Nick, since 1998 when we started our crazy adventure together! I am a quilter, rugger, and gardener. I also love to cook when I get the chance. Thanks for visiting and supporting Primitive Gathering Quilt Shop where I try to bring you the best Moda fabrics and wool projects anywhere! View all posts by lisabongean
