A little somethin' somethin' for you

I dutifully hauled the camera, its charger, the computer, etc to Road to California so I could blog while I was there and show you pics from the show floor. I was ready to post when my husband said that I should have brought the card reader with me too!! Man oh man (grumble, mumble and grumble!)Anyway, here are the pics of QuiltSoup. The lighting at these places always leaves a little to be desired but I think you will be able to get the idea.

Simply Sweet debutes at Road!!!



Charming Cherries (on the left) and Petal Path (a free download for you at QuiltSoup or Henry Glass):



Some of our customers...recognize anyone's backside?



I taught Learn to Needleturn to a terrific group of women. I taught Repeat Offenders too and the ladies were just as fun but I didn't get a picture!!



And now a little somethin' for you! I think we out to celebrate the new line by giving away a fat quarter stack of all 24 fabrics in the line. I am also giving away one bundle of yellows, blues, green, reds and pinks. That make 6 prizes in all. Any takers?
