A Rare Wilson's Exclusive For All You Faithful Bloggers :)

Jimmy Lene, a wonderful customer of ours, happens to square dance on occasion. Today she brought her costume in and Joy was the LUCKY one who got to try it on :) The skirt took about 80 yards of fabric, but Joy said it didn't feel heavy.

Hello Again...

ATTENTION ALL CURIOUS QUILTERS: Wilson's Your Favorite Quilt Shop has been completely rearranged. Come and feel free to explore the newly arranged store.
It is normal that every three or four months, Wilson's closes down for a day..... or at least it looks closed. However, on the inside the Wilson's staff is busy rearranging the quilts, machines, and furniture. On the following day, and for the next couple of months, customers "oohh" and "aahh" over stuff they have "never seen before" (or at least they think they haven't). -Walter

Anyway, check out our latest Christmas panel. We have quite a few of them sitting around here. And they are soooooo cute!! You have got to come out and see them before their all gone. - LaVonne

Kids Kamp

Wow the first day of Kids Kamp. Everything is going smoothly. No major catastrophes yet. (fingers crossed) We have a older group of kids this time around so that helps. :) Tomorrow their project will be finished, and We'll have pictures of them with their bright throws.

Walter's Watermelons

I planted 15 'Sugerbaby' watermelon seeds behind the house (in early May) on large mounds of fertilized topsoil, and finally a couple of them bloomed. Unfourtanatly 6 of the seeds that I planted died. The one shown in the picture is the largest 'Sugerbaby' so far, and by the looks of the the plants there will be many, many more to come. I think they'll be ready to eat by late August. Maybe you could come over to have a bite of one! -Walter

So did anyone drown last night? We certainly hope not. Althought rain was very much needed. The poor corn was dying on us. Now it looks all nice and green, at the moment anyway. This morning Kathy and I taught the Pop-Up-Pals class. We had 5 ladies with Designer 1's and one lady with a Pfaff! Thats right, its a Viking design, but you can use it on a Pfaff!! Isn't that cool! I thought so. :) We had the class do a elephant design. But after they were done they had some free time to play around. Hazel (above) desided to do the monkey (below). The one banana peel is 3-D. Its a little flappy of banana skin.

Jackies Latest Creation

Jackie stopped in with a Spring Beauty in totally awesome colors. Check it out!

It freaks me out that we rode in the front seat on the top deck of the double-decker buses in London, April 2005, now we see in the news that its not safe! Rode the tube through King's Crossing also! It's a small world.
