I Interupt this Holiday Season

for a new hobby.

Like I need something else to do.

When everything is so busy.

Grandbaby due very soon.

Christmas decorations still in their tubs.

Youngest son graduates college in 1 week and moves in 1 month.

And, in the middle of all this,  I have rediscovered sewing.

A couple of months ago, I bought a new Babylock sewing/embroidery machine.  My old Singer sewing machine is 30 years old, still runs great, but I was like a kid in a candy store when I saw everything this machine could do.

I started frequenting fabric stores again and found this cute little shop about 30 miles from me.

Lonesome Pine Quilt Shop

This little shop is so unique.   First, it is out in the middle of nowhere but well worth the drive.  Second, they offer free quilt classes and I sat in on one today.  Hmmm.  I’ve never tried quilting….and she gave us snacks.

Once you go in, you are greeted with a really cool, old truck.

Not your typical quilt store

With the bed filled with all sorts of goodies.

That's what I'm talkin' about

And what does one do before quilt class?

Here are some of the unique material and panels she carries.

Here is some fabric I bought for a quilt for my nephew

What will it be?

Now the ultimate question.

When will I get this done???

So, if you find yourself on Hwy. 16 between Elkins and St. Paul on a Friday or Saturday, look for the big red barn and stop in and check out her shop.  Or check out her online store at www.lonesomepinequilts.com

You may now return to your regularly scheduled Holiday Season.

About the blonde gardener

I'm an Arkansas girl born and raised. I garden in the beautiful Northwest part of the state (zone 6b or 7) surrounded by the Ozark Mountains. My favorite part about the area is we have 4 distinct seasons and are able to enjoy a variety of activities. My main passion is gardening but I also enjoy hiking, birding, 4-wheeling and motorcycle trips. Basically anything outside. Thanks for stopping by! Brenda

    I think you must be very creative! My mother sews and even makes quilts, but I have never gotten into that. But what a cute little shop! Hope you have a blast and meet a lot of new friends with your new hobby – and that you get everything else done, too!

    • Thanks! I’ve already got one “quilt” done. Its more of a small blanket for a gift but I’ll have to wait and post pics until after Christmas since they read my blog, too. I think it will be a good winter hobby.

    Quilting? Oh my goodness, let the fabric hoarding begin. One little quilt for a gift eh? It starts out that way, like an entryway drug and before you know it your husband will be building special shelves in the room that your son will be vacating to accommodate all of the fabric you’ll fall in love with. May you enjoy your new hobby and may God bless your family.
