For those of you who live nearby or are coming to NY to visit- don’t miss out on our STORE-WIDE sale! We are putting every item in stock at a 35% discount!!! (when paying with cash, 30% when with a credit card… not including already discounted items)
Come in and stock up on notions and browse through our fabrics for great finds! This sale is really not to be missed and I’m not just saying that because it is my store 🙂
I’m taking off a day from work today with 2 of my daughters to go to Manhattan to find material for Blima’s wedding. She wants the color purple for all the family and I’m happy to report if you don’t already know that purple is a hot color this season. I think I’m too old to actually wear all purple (I’ll feel like a huge grape) but a shade of it will work for me. I usually provide dresses for all the grandgirls and I’m happy to report that was already taken care of! We are now trying to decide if all the guys should wear purple ties (or socks— just joking) or just buttoneers. They seem to be balking at the buttoneers, but I’ll just threaten them a little more. 😉
We recently had our annual Hanukah party and it certainly was easier for me this year. No one let me do anything, no cooking, no preparing, no clean up! That’s the way to do it. All my kids that live in NY and NJ came with their kids and we had a very full house. I am now broke again because I give each one of my grandchildren $8 and there are more and more of them every year, thank G-d.
Mazal Tov!! For all of you that know my daughter, Blima [and for those of you who don’t, too bad on you], she got engaged Wed. night. He went the whole hog and hired a violinist and asked her on one knee. She is very happy and plans to get married in early March. That just means that the mother, moi, has to start getting busy making her gown because I’ve made them for all my other daughters and she wants one, too. Dumb me.
I’ve been trying to keep up with a ‘block of the month’ group, but so far I haven’t been too successful. Instead of making one of each block, I thought I would be real bright and make 2, so I would have 2 more quilts to give to the grandkids [since I don’t think I will ever really catch up]. Only problem: I misplaced everything in the mess of a sewing room I have. I started cleaning last week hoping that I’d find everything soon since the meeting is next Sunday. I read somewhere that one should beware of a quilter that is cleaning her room; it means she is planning to move out! I found the bag in the second to the last corner. When I excitedly showed my husband, he commented: “does this mean you aren’t going to clean your room anymore?” RIGHT! Guess what I’ll be doing all night tonight? Show you both finished projects the end of December.
