It is with pleasure that I am able to say that Slices of Life BOM is done and hanging in the shop.
This BOM has 12 blocks and each one represents a month and special things that describe that month. It is hand embroidered on a hand appliqued Dresden Plate.
So when it came to quilting, I knew I had to hand quilt it, it is gridded with a 1 inch Prairie Stitch.
I do want to thank everyone who ventured on this journey with me and to apologize for my delay on the last couple of kits. When I begin this BOM, my husband was still working out of town, since then he has retired and decided to come home and remodel a big part of our home.
So needless to say, I fell behind.
But it is done!!!
This BOM has a lot of room to add personalization, to make it you own. You can add birthdays, anniversaries, names etc..
And I am so HAPPY to say that it is now in the shop, and there are a few kits left.
We have a cute new kit in the shop. From the book “Urban Quilts”
It has a black flannel background, and all 100% wool applique pieces. Kits include black DMC floss.
It is a quick and easy project that looks adorable as a wall hanging or in a picture frame.
Could make a cute Mom’s Day gift.

Great things happen when a lot of hands get involved. What a blessing to have help in our projects…no matter what they are.
Sierra Cottons and Wools had such a blessing when they moved.
Barri would love to extend her heartfelt thank you to the following very unselfish women who pulled up their sleeves, wore jeans, drove and filled up their trucks, and helped pack:
You guys are the cream of the crop and the cherry on top!!

Beautiful New Floss Wall
Lots of room for kits and displays
Candle Mat Table loves its new home..View to the yarn room
Thank you Paula for being our first new customer
Vickie was the first customer to have yarn wound for her and there is Barri exhausted but happy and pretty
It was a wonderful day, with lots of people stopping by and congratulating Barri. Such encouragement and fun. There was conversation and laughter the whole day long.
I had the privilege of having the first class in the new shop. Quilting 101. I was so careful to remember to take pics that I forgot to take pics of my students. But I did manage to tale a photo of Rachel’s first 3 blocks that are done, we are making The Underground Railroad Quilt by Eleanor Burns.
Beautiful job Rachel!!!!!!
As the samples go up on the wall I will post lots more pics. Come by and see the new shop, you will fall in love all over again!!!
