Where Are You?

"Your blogs are getting scarce..."  that's the text I received yesterday from a friend of mine; my response was, "I know".  So where have I been?  What have I/we been doing?  Well, we have been working really hard on a little secret which I am really hoping to reveal the beginning of February- but I just don't know if it/we will be ready!  Besides that, we have been working on 2012's BOM and trying to prepare, or should I say trying to wrap our heads around the International Quilt Festival (retail show) in Cincinnati we are attending this year.  The stock of- everything- we need to prepare for the show makes me want to pass out.  It's an ongoing joke that Peg loves to order, and order, and order- especially threads and ribbons. Last week she was on the phone placing one of our massive thread orders for the upcoming show.  The order went on and on- I was seriously breaking out in a cold sweat.  I looked over at Cathy and asked her if she would bring her flashlight and iPhone to work the following day so we would be able to see and pull the orders- I was sure we would not be able to pay the electric bill after that order went through.  Cathy looked at me and mouthed "I know- my heart is palpitating"-  I have no idea where we will store this kind of stock!  My grandma suggested we order one of those large crates or containers that we could put in the driveway.  It is actually not a bad idea.  Usually when there is something 'extra'- like if we have stuff to take to Goodwill or we have a ton of boxes for recycling- my mom tells me to store them in the trunk of my car- or her's- really- I'm not kidding.  The trunks will just not do for this...

Anyway- I spent the morning unloading and inventorying wool for the BOM- again- I have no idea where we are going to store this...

Hundreds and hundreds of yards... the pictures just don't give it justice.


  1. can you contact me regarding booking Sue in Fall 2013? I sent and received message from someone in your camp a few months ago. Never heard back!

  2. Ooh I am loving those wool colours! You are making me crazy with anticipation...almost want to jump in the car and drive 11 hours to Cincinnati! (I live outside Philadelphia)....wish I lived closer, I would come over and help you make room! :)

  3. I'd be more than willing to "store" it at my house. Lol

  4. I can't wait to hear about this amazing SECRET!!!

  5. Hi Kathi,
    My mom emailed you back in November with no response. I see that she has tried to email you again today. Would you check your spam/junk box- maybe the emails have ended up in there.
