Have you stopped by for Shop Hop yet? We've been having a great time! Even if you can't do the full shop hop, you can still stop by. There are door prize drawings every half hour, snacks, cute shop hop patterns, and neat demos! Possibly my favorite demo is the one about these leaf bowls:
They're made with moldable interfacing that is incredibly sturdy and very shapeable. Even better, you can reshape them or even iron them flat for storing at the end of the season! Or you could flatten it and mail it to a friend with the instructions for molding it!
There are also instructions available for making a poinsettia bowl or brooch. The brooch has been waterproofed, so you can wear it out in the snow without it going limp!
Each shop in the shop hop made up kits for two months of the year. They're cute wallhangings by themselves, and you can collect them all and have a small calendar quilt for each month! Each shop has also made an interchangable background for hanging the small quilts on. We have the months of September and October, and this is what our designs look like:
