I am VERY excited to introduce Art Gallery Fabrics into our shop!

Patterns and Fabric!

This is what we received today in our first shipment from Art Gallery, and we will be adding lots more in the months to come.

Mesmerizing, aren't they?

Hi all!

Hope you had a great weekend. I know we are sure enjoying this fabulous weather!

I had oodles of time this weekend to work on my first quilt, Hurray!

And now it is almost finished, Double Hurray!

But I am in need of some help. I am ready to have it quilted and don't know who to take it to. Do any of you know anyone who quilts in the Rexburg, Rigby or Idaho Falls area? I don't know of anyone. If you have a minute and know someone, please let me know. I will be eternally grateful!

Leave a message or email me at asweetbyram@yahoo.com

Thanks so much!

I'll be back tomorrow with some new prints for the shop!

Berry Sweet Tweets!

We got in some "Berry Sweet Tweets" this week.

So sweet in fact, that I just might have to drop everything I am doing and get started on this bag right away.

It's pretty much adorable.

And this sweet quilt pattern is next on my list.

Now that summer is finally here, I do believe I better get started on this pattern too!

Good grief, I just don't have time for all these sweet projects!

And now for the "Tweets" that arrived this week....

Tufted Tweets by Laurie Wisbrun.
The Orchid Colorway
The Sorbet Colorway
The Grass Colorway

12 Prints in all.

So many cute projects, sew little time!

All these patterns and prints are listed in the shop, ready for enjoying.

My Monkey is Four!

REMINDER: No shop hours this week!
The shop in my home will be closed Tuesday June15th and Thursday June 17th!

Today is my son's 4th Birthday. And he is napping (we've had a busy morning) so I thought I would share a few projects.
When my son saw me open a box of fabric a few months ago, he squealed in delight.
He loves monkeys.
And he asked me to make him something with the monkeys.
It took me a few months, but I am FINALLY finished! And just in time for his birthday!

I started with a quilt. Just some basic squares and strips. It was really easy, except for the quilting. Grrrrrr.
I have offically quit trying to quilt on my regular sewing machine.
Too many tears.
He will be able to looks past all the tucks. All he cares about are the monkeys!

And of course he needs a monkey pillow!

I would say pillowcases are my favorite projects. Easy, fast, and adorable!
I just laid out a pillowcase on my fabric and cut it the same size.
Like I said, SEW easy!

Blanket and pillow. The perfect combination for a good rest.

Yup, he looks pretty comfy!

Closed Next Week

Hi all!

The Fabric Store will NOT have open shop hours next week, Tuesday June15th and Thursday June17th.

My home will NOT be open for shopping on those days as I am heading out to do a little fabric shopping of my own and restock our shelves.

The online shop will still be available for browsing and shopping. My husband will be manning it from home. So if you have a FABRIC EMERGENCY (as I know we all do occasionally) you will still be able to place an order online.

Shop hours will resume as normal on June 22nd and 24th!

Feel free to email with any questions you may have!

And now I will leave you with a little sneak peak of some fabric that we are expecting by the end of the week.

Tufted Tweets!
There are 12 prints in all. I just had to order the entire collection. I couldn't help myself :)
