Hi friends! We had such a great time on Saturday for our Spring Hoe Down Open House. Lots of old and new customers came in and it was so much fun to see everyone. The music was just wonderful! Everyone stuck around, had some lunch (which was fantastic) and listened to Dan sing for a long time. If you ever need a singer for an event, this is the guy! He has a beautiful voice and did all kinds of music - a little country, James Taylor, Elvis and some very inspiration Christian music. You can contact Dan at for more information.
Zanie Janie's was decorated for our Hoe Down with cowboy hats, boots, bandanas and all. It was adorable! Our cake was baked by Surre Cakes and we ran out of her business cards - so I'd say it went over quite well (it was delicious)!

I couldn't have pulled this off without our Carol and Sharon! They helped so much and we had lots of fun while we worked. The quilt show was at the Hadley House Museum and they sent us lots of new customers too.

I've added more new goodies since the open house, so be sure to come in and find your prim Easter goodies before they are gone. We are going to start opening on Sundays from noon until 4 p.m. now that the weather is leaning towards spring.

As much fun as it was, last week was so crazy! I was exhausted by yesterday. After Dick and I went up to visit my Dad, I slept on the couch from 8 last night to 8 this morning. I think I just totally passed out!

Well, time to keep sewing and finish up some things that were really meant for the open house.

Hope to see you all soon!!!

Until next time...
