Magic in Grandma's Closet

My fondest childhood memories are the times I spent with my maternal grandmother, going through her closet and bureau drawers, picking out dresses and hats and shoes and purses so that I could play dress-up. I spent hours making up elaborate stories of elegant ladies, all the while dressed in my grandmother's worn dresses and cast off shoes and hats. My grandparents lived in the country on a working farm, and she had beautiful flower gardens where I was allowed to play to my heart's content, as well as the many hours I spent turning her modest bedroom into my fancy boudoir! That's me in all my finery shown in the photo!

These are warm memories dear to my heart, and this is what we'll be recreating for you at Sweet Home Quilt Co. during The Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop, March 26-29, 2009. It's not too early to begin making your plans to enjoy "The Magic of Childhood" with all nine participating Atlanta area quilt shops.

Its Freezing!

It is very cold here in Atlanta and prospects of nice spring weather for Shop Hop 2009 are in our thoughts!

We are almost at the point of finalizing all our printed material so it can get off to the printer and back to us by January to start handing out to all of you.

November 2008

Tomorrow is election day. Hopefully all of you have either voted already or plan to tomorrow.

The weather has been just beautiful the last few days and the trees are changing colors rapidly now. Get out side and look!

I am having fun thinking up fun things for Shop Hop in 2009. I trust many of you have put the date on your calendar and plan on being in the greater Atlanta area the last weekend in March for all the fun. Don't let yourselves miss out. It will be fun!
