This is just one small corner of my friend, Jamie's The Quilted Heart Quilt is just the cutest best decorated quilt shop in all of Arkansas! Yea Jamie!!!! Every Wednesday we gather after she closes the shop and we bring our supper and our projects which can be anything and we stitch and talk and laugh and have the best time. I feel very blessed to have this group and I really look forward to it each Wednesday and NOW I am starting a Beginner's Quilting class at Jamie's shop on Tuesday nights so I will show you my progress (hopefully I will have some) while taking the class. Can they REALLY teach and old dog new tricks???
This is Sally, quilter extrordinaire....she and her friend Dian (not in the pictures) are going on a quilt spa retreat and have been working on their "challenge" quilts which are turning out SO CUTE!
This is Jamie....the owner and sole proprietor of The Quilted Heart.....a nicer and more talented gal you will never meet and decorate???? She could teach the experts....everything she touches turns into cute and marvelous immediately! She's holding up a bag of wool squares she's been cutting for months should see the cute stuff she makes with them.
This is Linda and she is hooking a wool rug that she designed herself! First time she has ever done it too.....this gal does everything and anything and she is good at it right out of the box!
No, I did not make this.......Jamie's daughter , Kelly did! Cute cat quilt just waiting for Jamie to quilt it on her long arm quilting machine. The little pony tail belongs to Abigail....Jamie's grandaughter.

It's Spring in the Ozarks!'s Spring here for sure! I hung 2 loads of clothes out and the wind is really whipping today and they dried in record time. The daffodils are blooming everywhere....they come up in the woods all around here too. The white blooming tree is in my side/front yard and is a Bradford Pear. It's about the only tree that didn't get damaged from the ice storm. So, for those farther North.....get ready! Spring is on it's way to you too!

I found it!!!! Whew!

But now the batteries went dead so this was all I was able to get pictures of before it bit the dust. The dish I got at the moving sale and it is from Portugal and has a little chip but I love the dish! It has all kinds of frogs and leaves and it has some Portugese potter's name on the bottom.
The chair I got from a friend yesterday who is"downsizing" and it was FREE!!!! It came with the arm covers and the matching ottoman and matches my bedroom carpet which I don't like but for now it is just fine and it was FREE! That is 3 FREE chairs in a week! WOW! I think I am going to clean my garage and have a little thrift store of my own 4 or 5 times a year....hmmm....not a bad idea. The town will only let you have 4 or 5 sales, be they garage or otherwise, per year. Yes, I think this is what I am going to do! I'll post more after I get batteries for the camera. It was in my craft bag because I took it with me to my Craft Group who I was going to photograph and then forgot! LOL!
