Hello Everyone and Greetings from the Farm

It is amazing to me how quickly we have become so dependent on the internet.  It seems like it was yesterday when we first heard about it.  Now it is so everything. Ours went out about a month ago and it was horrible. Anyway, enough of that, I apologize for not blogging sooner-but...

My Thanksgiving was wonderful and I hope that everyone else had an equally nice day.  I am so thankful that we have plenty. I wish that the whole world had enough.  Don’t get me started.  I wish that hunger was eliminated and while I am at it...Peace on Earth....There I said it.  Also, I hope that you had a Merry Christmas and are enjoying a Happy New Year.

First, I would like to invite you to join Hannah and I for a weekend of fun and classes in Temple, Texas.  Valentines Day Weekend-$300 (housing, classes & meals included) Feb.  13, 14, & 15th. 2015.  Join us if you can.

We just got back from South Florida. I just feel like that I am home when I cross the state line and it was so nice and warm.  Highs in the 80s mostly.  It was a wonderful show-again thanks all.  And then Hannah and I and a few friends had a wonderful fews days on the Emerald Coast.
Got to relax and just take it easy.

Actually, right now, I am headed for Jefferson Texas for the 12th Annual Jefferson Quilt Show “Quilts on the Bayou. Show dates are January 23-25, 2015.  Also, we are hoping to “show off our stuff”(be vendors) at the The Sewing & Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington. Show dates are
February 26 - March 1, 2015.  After that we go to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee where we have a booth and teach a class or two at the A Mountain Quiltfest. Show dates are March 18-21, 2015.  More show dates to be announced soon. Contact us for details.

Again, I would like to thank Carol and the crew at Quiltmania.  They put my design “Snowman” on the back cover of their Special Winter 2014 issue of Quiltmania.  They do such a good job.  It felt so different to see it on the magazine instead of in my booth. I did it several years ago and it is such a big hit at every show we do. Here is a picture

They also put my design “Vintage Christmas” in the Winter 2014 issue of Simply Vintage. Here is a picture of it.

Carol also picked out four new ones for upcoming editions.  I am so happy that they like my work enough to feature it in their magazines.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank them and you for all of the support.

As always Enjoy Life

Thanks again    Dolores Storm
