Wednesday at Bolts

Some days owning your own business is everything it is cracked up to be. Today was one of those days. Fay was at an Assistance League meeting and Tiffany was giving a lecture to the LA County Quilt Guild.

So it was just Peggy and I. We cut out some more Creepers Peepers kits. The panel is very cute.

As are the silly bats for the border.

Michelle made our sample that is hanging behind the counter. Ours is a little different than the pattern as we used some alternative fabrics. Ours has a great black/grey/white chevron in place of the green.

Three different people came and picked out fabric for the Madison’s Star quilt class that I am teaching. This is the first one that I made.

These are the fabrics for my second one:

It should be very exciting to see how they all come out. There are eight students, so I’ll have to get pictures of the other fabric selections.

One of the best parts of the day was teaching three teenage boys how to sew pockets onto t-shirts. Alex, Paul and Daniel came into the store a few weeks ago to look around. That is one of the greatest perks about our move to The Blvd. New people interested in sewing. After a while they picked out a couple of fat quarters.

Then last week they came in and asked about a class to teach them how to sew pockets onto a shirt. So we spent a couple of hours together. And they were amazing!

They cut out, pressed and sewed. It was so much fun to see how much they enjoyed the process.

Those are the highlights of my day. How was yours?

Stitch at you Soon,
