Summer: More Hazy than Lazy

Let's face it. Unless you're still in grade school, summer is just not that lazy anymore. Not only do you have to do all the things you do the rest of the year, there are more outings and events to fit in AND you don't always have that structured schedule that is September through June. It's kind of like jamming all that yardage into a Flat Rate Envelope. You can do it but it's not always pretty. That's my excuse for lapsed blogging and I'm sticking to it.

One thing I've jammed into the summer is the First Big Road Trip for Sew Fresh – the World Quilt Show – New England X in Manchester, New Hampshire. We'll be at Booth 913 in the Expo Center. Stop by and say hi if you're in the area. There will be lots of bundles, kits and Daily Specials including the most heaping, overflowing Scrap Bin you have ever seen.

While the cat's away, you mice get to play... with a spectacular shipping deal! Since I won't be able to ship for the bulk of next week, you get Flat Rate Shipping – US ships for $2.50, Canada ships for $5 and International ships for $8! (Refunds will be made back to your account upon shipment.) Orders placed after midnight EST Monday, Aug. 13 will begin shipping on Monday, Aug. 20. (Shipping special is over now, sorry.) Please allow extra time for your orders to process as I will ship in the order they were received.

Also, if you're looking to get your groove on this summer, check out The Totally Groovy Quilt Along with Pile o' Fabric. The prizes are out of this world man. (SFF Gift Certificate in there).

  4. Silk georgette is often a material in which made out of cotton. It's lightweight, soft as well as translucent. The one thing helps make man made fiber georgette distinctive is the crinkly crepe-light consistency, which can feel a bit rough as well as uninteresting, but increases the man made fibre material a bouncy and also flowing search. The actual threads utilized in silk georgette material are extremely sprained, which causes the crooks to crinkle since they take it easy. The weave regarding silk georgette is often rather restricted, though the overall look will be somewhat absolute, since the posts have become thin. Unlike some okay man made fiber materials, cotton georgette is also typically solid, and yes it strengthens nicely to many use. Given that man made fiber is very water proof, man made fibre georgette could be dyed in a myriad of shades, as well as imprinted with silk fabric.
