Sewing with Sydney

Today I had a chance to sew! Quilt Shop Owners don't get to sew as often as they wish, but today I indulged my passion and worked on several projects. Liz and I both had plenty of customers to help, but Sydney and I retreated often to the classroom and kept the sewing machine humming. Liz was head ironer and trimmer.

First thing this morning the UPS man came with several boxes. Sydney signed for the packages and Liz cut open the boxes. Christmas has arrived! Or rather---Christmas fabrics are BEGINNING to arrive at Scottie Dog Quilts. We have a cute line in---all Scottie Dogs, gift boxes and Christmas trees. Liz and brainstormed and a cute quilt ensued. Here it is half-finished and Sydney is doing show and tell.

Jelly Rolls, Charm Packs (5" squares) and Layer Cakes (10" squares) of Moda's new Christmas lines from Mary Englebreit, Sandy Gervais & 3 Sisters have arrived. The yardage will follow soon.

Hi Brenda, what a fun blog you have! Love the idea of Scottie Quilts *VBS*
Thanks so much for stopping by over at the Orphan Train, and for leaving such a nice comment. I really appreciate it.
The new Christmas lines sure do look like fun!! Hugs, Finn
