Fibre Expressions Quilt Shop -I-

It has been an extremely hot and busy summer for us so far.  Thank goodness for our central air conditioning or we wouldn't get much claying done.

We've had a great time these past few weeks with the Shuswap Lake Festival of the Arts show, meeting new people and making new friends.

We had the privilege to meet Christine and her lovely daughter, Stephanie, who are the owners of Fibre Expressions Quilt Shop in Sechelt, BC.  They now have a wide selection of our buttons for sale in their store, in particular some of our latest design larger buttons to go with some new bags they will be teaching in their classes this fall.  They have a spacious classroom in their store along with a wide range of books, notions and fabrics.   Check out the photo on their website of their cool quilted car that they drive in the local parades.

They are in a beautiful and somewhat remote part of our province we call the Sunshine Coast.  The area is filled with shops, artists and plenty of nature.  Make sure you drop in if you are in the area.  If you cannot make it to their shop, you might want to check out their website as they also sell online.

Here are our new Medallion Crackle buttons in a concave style that are now available at Fibre Expressions.

Rectangle Kaleidoscope Dish -I-

Yesterday was the final day of the Shuswap Lake Festival of the Arts show and it will most likely take a few days for Dave and I to get everything put away and recover from the busy week we've had.  It was a great week and we are already planning the next art show we will be in coming up in September but I will share that with you a little later when I have more time.

In the meantime, since I was showing off some of my new decorative ring/jewelry/soap dishes, I thought I would show you one more in a different style, again with more of my left over kaleidoscope cane pieces. This time I used Helen Breil's "Tango" texture sheet to "frame" it.
