Today's Treasure

The CEO and I have been out running a few errands and just mostly enjoying the Sunshine......

Our first stop was for Pepsi and Peanuts....yes I know I gave up Pepsi.
But sometimes you just Need to indulge....
Then we proceeded on to our favorite Antique Store where I found my Little treasure.

It's not perfect and It needs a good cleaning...but I couldn't pass it up...
I think this will be the one I will actually sew on....

After a nice dinner at Deans Restaurant and Bakery which was very good. 
O, and the Fried Coconut Cream Pies were so good I just had to bring a couple home with me...yummy! 
If you ever get to Deans in Oak Ridge you have to try these.....


We have now arrived safely home...and are enjoying the NBA Playoffs...

Hope you all have a Wonderful Happy Easter with family and friends..
                God is Good!

Mountain Quiltfest


The CEO and I were up and at it early. I was so excited to get to the quilt show inPigeon   Forge
I was going to get my Lime Green Featherweight I have been dreaming of.  
I had emailed weeks ago to make sure the man would be there and have it.
Imagine my broken heart when I found him and discovered he brought the wrong one. That's right instead of Lime Green. He had John Deere Green.  Yuck! 
He did assure me he had one and would bring it to Paducah next month.  Oh well that just means another road trip. 
I did run into a few friends today. Enjoying the show. Becky. & Pat sporting beautiful new tiaras.  
Then I found Sandy who was surprised to discover her challenge quilt had a ribbon. Sandy and Pat came to the Barn where we worked on this project together.  What fun memories we made. 
On our way out we ran into these  two dear friends.  Peggy and Marlene.  Love these gals. 
We topped our evening off with dinner at the Apple Barn with some of our Barn Buddies. 
Now the CEO and I are stuffed and on our way home.

 If you have a chance be sure and check out the quilt show this weekend...

Talkin Turkey


My journey today began bright and early....I traveled two lane back roads and watched the sun come up on my way to quilt class in Oliver Springs, Tennessee...
I was off to a class with world famous quilter and author Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville fame..
Here is Bonnie with her Talkin Turkey quilt....
We got right to work sewing on our strings...which range in size from 3/4" to 2"
Here is my basket of strings...this is right up my alley....and yes there is a basket in there. Somewhere!
And this is my block...as you can see I decided to make mine "scrappy"....this isn't a good picture. It looks better and I'm liking the way it turned out.

Here are a few photos of "show & tell" by some of my class mates....
A big Thank You to the Ritzy Thimble Guild for hosting this awesome class...and to Bonnie Hunter who is a GREAT instructor....what a great way to spend "National Quilting Day"....

February Class

Hello everyone, hope you all are enjoying Sunshine and warm temperatures...I can tell the days are getting longer and that means spring is just around the corner...

I have this "cute" little block for our class. it is so much fun to make and easy...really it is...you can use a layer cake or if you don't have a layer cake just cut 10" squares from your stash. I have chosen a neutral fabric for my background. I like the way it ties it all together...
I have several blocks made, but haven't decided just how I want to set it together...I have several ideas. But I think I will wait until class and let you all help me decide. That's right in this class we will play with design...

So mark your calendar for February 28th
Class begins at 10:00 am (central)
Class fee is $25.00

Call 931-863-8362 or email at bbstowers@gmail.com to reserve your spot...

Thanks again to all those who continue to support us at the Barn. 
Love you all & see you at the "barn"
Becky
