Grandest of Openings

Last week was the grand opening of the new Pine Needles Quilt and Sew. It even has a new name.

It was quite the event and we were all there-lined up in front of the food.



Our leaders Marcia and Suzie


Connie T needs to be added in there too (in the purple shirt and black cardi in the group pictures)-she is fearless leader #3 and an all around go to girl (and the person who ALWAYS puts my name first on the retreat and SB mystery quilt lists-you know what I’m talkin’ about).

It was a wonderful opening-seemed like a long time in coming. There was a line to the door at 5 PM when the store opened, and I had a little PTSD flashback of the 70% sale. Oh God. Fortunately it was nothing like the 70% sale, and a good thing because I was not nearly medicated enough for that kind of thing.

Fans and husbands sent flowers (not my husband but some husbands….)

Food was ready


And the new store was unveiled.

On Friday my friend Mary K and I went to see Kaye England do her thing. It was entertaining and I learned sooo much.


Of course I couldn’t get a good picture of her, and I took a few. But I like this one with one of her quilts up behind her.


This is one of her embroidery designs. A little cow. I just can’t imagine why I was drawn to it. (RIP my little Twinkles…..)

The linky to her website is here-you should take a look.

I finished my Oh Delilah by SheKnits the day the shop opened. It’s for Marcia. I am working on matching footies. It’s very cozy.


My friend Jill came down on Saturday to the shop and we had dinner, which was highly pleasant after the busy week.

Sunday was a sunny funny day. I ran 10 miles. That was the funny part.

The cats partook of the sun.

……and dig the hillbilly’s trampoline. Doesn’t it just add to the ambiance?


Next weekend is more fiber-otherwise known as Yarnover. Sweeet!

Stay tuned-film at 11.
