It’s been an awesome week!

First, the celebration of our nation’s independence in local Deer Lodge, TN was one of the best, most family friendly, wholesome events I have gone to in a very long time.

Kudos to all involved!  Here’s a pic from the parade:

Last Saturday, I got to visit with blogger-bud HarleyWife57.  We of course played with fabric.  This purse is for her:

I know, you are all thinking I am working for the Bow Tucks designer on commission or something, but I assure you I am not.  I just love this purse & apparently Winking smile I am not alone!  I have yet to list the red fabric (very new to the shop), but the black tonal is Marcus Nightscapes & you can find it here).

I also decided that this fall panel was just in need of some quilting to make it pop.  I tried my hand at some new designs & techniques and am happy with how it looks.  I used Aurifil variegated thread for most of the quilting (a new love)

Our other big Whoop Whoop was more store improvements, via new lights.  If you have ever tried to take a pic of a light bulb you know this is not a pic I can share, so you will just have to come in & SEE!

So, it’s time to give & share some Whoop Whoop! for a week well finished!

Share the Love!
