Winter IS here and we are having a great SALE!

I was hoping that winter would skip right by us but it is here. Between the wind storm that took out power for a lot of NE Washington, and the inversion with temps dropping well into the teens, and the fog/frost on everything, it leaves no doubt that winter is here and Christmas is around the corner.

Well I had to whine a little but that being said. I would like to let everyone know that I am having a 20% off  sale at till the end of December.

You should go and check out the precuts, they would make great Christmas gifts.

Time Flies!!!

Time sure seems to be getting away from us... Seems like summer was just starting... and now we are coming up on Halloween and the kids have been in school for almost two full months. Mom (Jeanette) asked me to post some of my finished projects....I think time has gotten away from her too!! And her computer has been a bit of a pill lately, so the blog has been sadly neglected... So in the meantime you will get to listen to me share a few projects and things happening at Inchworm Fabrics until mom can get her computer to behave!!

Summer show and are a few quilt tops I finally got finished.

This is the family quilt that everyone made a block for this year...
My disappearing hourglass quilt... It was fun to make... I will probably make another one.
And a disappearing shoo fly. The blocks that I had extra I put on the side to make pillows out of.

And this little guy was a project I started quite awhile ago. But he got finally got finished too.

I hope everyone is getting a chance to finish up a few projects as well. And if you get a chance, hop on over to the has been getting in some new precuts. And there is still plenty of time to start a project or two to get done by Christmas.

Incredible Luck!!!!

The most unbelievable thing happened to me last week.

A friend of mine has been looking for a sewing machine for her daughter. Well there is  a surplus store at the University where I work and they had some Elna Club 500's. Every time I asked about buying one they had a reason they weren't selling them yet. Well they had a auction on Thursday. I had to be at a demo all day and couldn't go to the auction so I went in early and asked if I could place a bid on 1 sewing machine. They let me and I went to my demo. When I got back to the office late that afternoon there was a message on my answering machine that I had won the bid and to come by 3:00 to pay and pick up. This was at 4:30 and I thought rats, they won't sell it to me because I didn't get back to them. So I called and they said I could come in the next day after 10:00 and pay and pick up.... Oh and by the way you won all four, (four mind you) machines. All I could think was "are you kidding me". But no got all for the price I was willing to pay for one. My friend took 2 and  2 of my girls are going to take the other 2. Wow what a deal. I am still in shock.

On another note. I have been so distracted with moving (what other excuse do I have besides being lazzzzzzzzzy) that I have fabric that I haven't even added to the store but I did get some put on there the other day.  Talk about late and beyond, Wrens Friends I have had since December.

Bags and Blocks

I finished a few projects, so mom asked me to post them. She is still moving, but I have heard "rumors" that she has almost got her new sewing room set up!! Maybe she will post a few pictures....

Here are the messenger bags I recently finished for my sister to take on the trek this year. I mostly followed the tutorial from Noodlehead for making a bag from cargo pants...but I did make a few changes..
I also finished sewing my block and my brother's block for our family quilt this year. 

 Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend with family and friends.

Mothers Day

This is a disclaimer......We are still moving stuff.....Life will get back to normal.......

I dont remember it being such an ordeal the last time we moved but my memory isn't what it used to be. I spent the day mowing grass and pulling weeds. My youngest daughter and her two little girls came last night and helped me work on my sewing room and my yard. It was a nice mothers day present. I bought myself 2 rose bushes. An old fashioned pink smelly one and a white one with dark pink edges also a smelly one.

For all the mothers out there.

I often go walking in meadows of clover,
 and gather armfuls of blossoms of blue.
I gather the blossoms the whole meadow over,
Dear Mother, all flowers remind me of you.

O mother, I give you my love with each flower.
To give forth sweet fragrance a whole lifetime through.
For if I love blossoms and meadows and walking,
I learn how to love them dear mother from you.

Still Moving

This is the new house in the middle of wheat country in eastern Washington. Built in 1899.  I just love the charm of a country home. We have been fixing and painting. I have been camping out for the last couple of months. Just got the internet but the phone still doesn't work. I was starting to feel like I had dropped off the grid. Still cant use the kitchen sink but at least the bathroom works (thank heaven for small blessings). We have been pulling up old linoleum and tearing off layers of wallpaper. Fixing stair and deck railings. Did I mention painting and more painting? Nothing perks up a place like a fresh coat of paint.

All the furniture is still at the old house and all the little stuff in boxes is here at the new one. All my fabric and my machines are boxed up waiting for their new home to be finished. Do you hear that noise.....I can hear them murmuring because it has been so long since they have had any attention.

The new job is great and the house will be awesome when we get done.
