Black Friday Deals!

Hey there, friends!  I hope you've all gotten your fill of turkey, dressing, and plenty of dessert, and are enjoying your holiday weekend with lots of family time.  Now that turkey day is over, it's time to get busy finding perfect gifts for everyone on your list, and for those special people who love sewing (that includes you!), Black Friday is the time to get gorgeous fabrics at amazing prices.

Lots of shops keep their specific Black Friday sales close to the vest before the actual day, and since this post was written a few days ahead of time (so I could have a work-free Thanksgiving myself), I'm just going to give you a little tease.  Be sure to head over to these shops to see all of the goodies they have this weekend!

At Shabby Fabrics, they are having a HUGE blowout sale, with 75% off of tons of products.  Lots of kits, fabrics, patterns, and books, and even extra markdowns on their sale and clearance sections!

At LouLou's Fabric Shop, they are having a massive clearance sale on almost everything in the shop, including bolt ends, precuts, and lots of yardage.  LouLou's also has a cute little gift section, with perfect inexpensive items for your quilty BFF.

Lady Belle Fabrics is always one of my favorite places to shop, but one of the things that sets them apart is their longarm quilting service.  Brooke at Lady Belle does beautiful work, and sometimes the best gift you can give is the gift of time.  What quilter wouldn't want to be able to have a quilt top sent away and come back magically quilted?

Lady Belle also has a gorgeous section of Christmas fabrics, just in case you need the perfect print to finish up a last minute holiday project.  Be sure to check it out!

And finally, Fort Worth Fabric Studio has lots of special deals, like this awesome Dream Big tree skirt, as well as lots of precuts, bundles, kits, and patterns.

Okay friends, be sure to visit these shops for ALL of the specific Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals happening right now.  I know you don't want to miss out!   Happy (belated) Thanksgiving and happy shopping!

Almost Back in Business!

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends.  Whew!  These last couple of weeks have been so very hectic, but we are finally all moved into our new home.  Of course, that means that we are currently swimming in packing paper, bubble wrap, and boxes, but progress is progress.  And, I have my sewing studio all put together...well, almost anyway.

You might remember that my dining room table was being used as my sewing extension and cutting table, and since my dining room is once again a dining room in my new home, I need a new table for my studio.  I'll be heading to Ikea this weekend and then I'll be all set!

My new studio is a little smaller than my old one, but it has great light, a nice sized closet, and a dreamy aqua color (that I didn't have to paint myself), so I call it an even trade.  Since the windows in this room are huge, there wasn't one wall that really worked for my giant color wheel, so instead, my minis are hung in a whimsical line around the room.

My Oh Happy Day! banner that used to hang in the middle of the wheel is still on display, but now hangs above the windows, just across from my machine.  The other main wall houses my project drawers, design wall, ironing board, and some quilts on display.

I can't wait to get everything else all together in my house so I can get in here and really start creating!

Our last NTT was a couple of weeks ago, but it had so many great projects linked up.  This scrappy bird house quilt from Frederique at Quilting Patchwork Applique is so amazing!

This scrappy string quilt was shared by Gretchen's Little Corner, along with LOTS of other scrappy goodness, so be sure to check out all of the others shared in her post.

And I just love all of the great texture in this quilt by Liz at Savor Every Stitch.

Okay friends!  I can't wait to see what you've been working on all this time.  Let's party!  By the way, since next week is Thanksgiving, NTT will be taking a break (just odd timing with the move being so close to the holiday).  BUT be on the lookout for my big Black Friday post with some amazing sales from my favorite shops.

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)
