    What pattern is the one the ladies are working on with the watering can and flowers? I think that is really nice. Thank you, Julie Goedeke

    My summer is off to a wonderful start with a trip to Kansas City, KS for the quilt show. A big highlight was meeting Jessica in person. She is always so helpful when I call with an order or question. Took a second to register with me that Jessica (always check out name tags) was there to help me. I was so excited to meet her that I may have yelled, “Jessica”. Big hugs and a quick visit before I finished finding many goodies and telling friends that Jessica will help you. Then, I got to refer others throughout the show to do their shopping with her.
    Think your next store should be in Kanas.

    Should plan a San Antonio trip. We have Sea World. Can’t wait to see you on the cruise. Enjoy the baby. Best part of life.

    Love the sunset!
    Oh, cute, cute baby face!
    A wedding? Happy day! Congrats! You have a very busy summer, lady.
    Wonderful stitching on that center flower of the wool block.
    Gorgeous moth–the toad, not so much. : )

    Good to hear that with all your work you are still able to find some time to enjoy the lake house. Beautiful pic. Hope to visit your Menasha store next month when I get up to Wisconsin to visit family.

    I loved your “Working With Wool” class! I have everything blanket stitched and am working on the vines…it’s such a cute runner. Thanks for sharing your art.
    Enjoy your summer,

    Lisa, I just left the Vermont Quilt Festival and this quilt in the antique section looked like one you would love. It was absolutely wonderful. The squares were less than an inch! It just twinkled.

    So glad you are able to enjoy the lake and some free time during the summer. You have such a busy schedule and deadlines that I’m sure you cherish every free time moment with family. Also glad that you are still making the beautiful designs for us. The summer block of the week is absolutely awesome. Looking forward to seeing you in August at Cousins in Bellaire.
