Mark your calendars & come for a visit!!!

Good Friday morning Blogland Neighbors! Where have I been all week? Besides two away soccer games, "Meet the Teacher Night", and FINALLY getting a chance to get my hair - doo done, I spent this morning hunting .... first I had to hunt for my coffee cup that I had just set down..... when I found that I promptly had to hunt for my camera that I had also just set down .... after finding that I spent the next 10 minutes hunting for my glasses that I had ALSO just set down..... after that I started hunting for MY MIND because I think I'm LOSING IT!! SHEESH !!!

ANYHOW, another thing I did this week was visit with my pals Kelly and Judy at Kelly's quilt shop The Quiltery in Weissport, Pa. Let me show you what we were talking about .... and it must be pretty exciting because .... look!...


.....it made the paper!.....











OK, so here's what we were talking about ....
(sigh...)Daisy, get OFF of that piece of paper!!!

....Kitty! ... MOVE!!(sorry.... I'm TRYING to show you that flier that everybody keeps parking on .... actually, now that I see it, I think it's hard to see that orange paper against the orange background not to mention the fact that it's a bit BLURRY .... let me tell ya, this MBIAJ Photography Dept is always thinking ....) OK, let's try this again ....


.....(I know, Kitty and Daisy are still in the picture .... it's in their contract that they get to be in a certain number of pictures on the MBIAJ blog....) anyhow, can you read that flier? (if you click on it and enlarge it that should help). Let me read it to you .... " Fall Foliage Open House .... Join us at The Quiltery .... Saturday Sept 27th 10-5 PM and Sunday Sept 28th 11-4 PM ... Free beginner class... Free demos....FOOD & DRINK ... Door Prizes....Project Ideas .... Christmas Countdown Projects .... Fall & Harvest Projects " (check website for times of beginner class http://thequiltery.org or call 610-377-5590 )........AND , if that isn't exciting enough, guess what else ?!?!?!!! Kelly has asked me to do a little workshop demonstration of some of my fall projects that I've designed !!!!! I was very flattered (and flabergasted by the way ....) so, now you all have to sit through a little preview of the workshop projects I plan to do .....


.....HEY! come back here and SIT DOWN !!!! ......OK, shall we continue?


first, "Honeybee Pumpkin & Sunflower" blocks using fusible interfacing applique....



...second, "Autumn Leaves" garland (just click on that picture to make it bigger)

next, "Witch's Brew" stitchery colored in with colored pencils and .....

....last, a "Pumpkin Garland"...

......(here's a close up of one of the pumpkins in the garland)








So, anyhow, if you're in the area on Sept 27th (that's the day I'll be there, in the afternoon after Evan's soccer game in the morning) or Sept. 28th, drop in for a visit ! Weissport, Pa is only about a half hour from the Allentown area; about an hour from the Scranton/Wilkes Barre area; and about 2 hours from the Philadelphia area (check The Quiltery website for maps and directions) ..... and , once again ....

.....here's Kitty with the details (she STILL insists she hasn't met her photo quota for the month ....sorry....) anyhow, as usual, if you click on the picture to make it bigger you'll be able to read the flier better!! (again, MBIAJ Photography Dept at their best !)









Be back soon!

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

Hi Mare,

If I hadn't lost those purse magnets, I would have never cleaned it up yesterday! I think I'm on a roll now though because I straightened up even more today - still no luck with the search though - ended up going to the store for another set - really want to finish that purse! Anyway, thanks for putting CuteStuffInside.blogspot on your link list - I'm doing the same for you. Come back again!

S.W.A.K.

Look at all of those cute projects. You inspired me...I was here earlier, and I got right off the computer and made husband drag out the fall decor boxes. I did the ole' switchero and now we are fully into fall. I love the garland. It is so cute.

Mare, those were the nices comments you left about our grab bags. I really appreciate you voting. Thanks!
