Back in Missouri

We decided to take advantage of the summer and so here we are in Missouri again.  Where we live, the oak trees are suseptible to drought and disease.  Needless to say, this is what we found when we drove up.
It was nice that our neighbors had forewarned us before we came so it wasn't a complete shock.

Funny how they look so much larger when they are on the ground.

I took this picture from inside the garage and it shows Ron starting the clean up.

Done for now!  Will tackle the rest later.  Everything moves at a slower pace here in the Ozarks.

Dewees, Pam, Carolyn, Karin, and Liza
I know it has been a while since I last blogged but have taken 3 weeks off.  Just fun and sun in Missouri.
Thought I'd better show you some more pictures of the show.  Here goes:

We had $5.00 and $10.00 bundles of wool.  They were a hit!

This was such a popular kit. Pattern is from Bareroots.

This is Cricket Street Wool Designs wall.  I just introduced them at this show and everyone seemed to like them.

Everyone loves this kit.  Pattern from Primitive Gatherings.

Another kit, pattern from Primitive Gatherings

Pattern from Bareroots.  Fun little kit to complete for an excellent gift.

Handmade make-do pin cushions for sale.

We all had a great time at the show and made many new friends.

Common Threads Quilt Show....Wichita, KS

Thought I would share with you some of the pictures of our booth at the quilt show, June 25 - 27th.  We did take a lot of pictures so will add new ones the next few days. 
We arrived and found our booth 'very white'.  Since Cricket Street Wool doesn't do well with white, we had a job ahead of us.

Now the work 100 degree weather and no air-conditioning.

Karin is doing such a good job sorting that wool!

Dewees, don't let Liza fall!

Somebody hand Karin a pin, it's hot in here.

After 7 hours, we are all finished.

Will have more pictures in the next few days.

Liza's Summer Hobby

Ron and I had a chance to drop by Liza's house yesterday afternoon.  We wanted to check out all her hard work............she has been rebuilding her pond.  Thought it would be fun to share some pictures with you. 

This is one awesome backyard.


She also has a small pond!  It is nestled along the side with all the beautiful landscape.

Lastly, we want you meet Seth, the keeper of the yard.
Anyway, hats off to Liza, her hard work paid off!

Now, back to work, the Common Threads Quilt Show in Wichita is coming up fast!  We have been working hard trying to get things ready.  Watch for more pictures of what we are going to have in the booth.
Just found out that we will be in booth #303.  I have been told it is on the west side of the building.

More Pictures from the Sunday Gathering and a sneak peek of Quilt Show items

As promised, I have some more close up pictures of the crazy blocks from last Sunday............

These are close ups taken of Gaila's block. 

We had a show and tell when the two Judy's brought their projects.  These two gals get so much done and everything they do is great!

You just have to see this one in real life to appreciate it.  Great job Judy (she is going to let me take it to the Wichita, Kansas quilt show  'Common Threads 2010')  Thank you Judy.  I will be vending there on
June 25-27, 2010.  Think I counted 58 vendors.

It's hard to tell, but the baskets are woven strips of wool.

Judy is ready for her borders.....can't wait to see that!

Really been working hard to get ready for the quilt show and a couple gals have been hard a work making samples for me.  Take a look at Dewees' geranium's gorgeous !!!!

How about this one?  It is really cool!

Anyway, I best get back to work............

Crazy Woolies Gathering....... Sunday, May 16th

We had a fun day with the Kansas Crazy Woolies
I offered some specials of wool bundles which they had a good time finding just the right one
 (or two or three)
I took a lot of pictures and will scatter them out over the next few days. 

Judy made her crazy quilt block into a large pillow that was really unique.

The center of Judy's pillow.

This is the starting of Gaila's blocks and the next three pictures will show her progress!!!

She has really been busy the last month, don't you agree?

A couple of post ago, I showed you Dewees' block and here it is all ready to frame.

Will have more later so watch for close-ups and other projects that were at the show and tell.
