So...I took a few days off after publishing the Gemini FlightBag pattern in March to remodel our guest bathroom  & now it gives me great pleasure to announce that we are officially in the throes of getting ready for our 1st retail show in SEVENTEEN months, the Mountain QuiltFest in Pigeon Forge, TN during the first week of May! I'm SO excited & I'd love to see as many of you there as possible!

April 2021 "Eye Candy"
It’s time for your monthly treat for the eyes & this month's selection of bags is REALLY lovely, in fact... they're all GORGEOUS!  ALL of the bags pictured below have been shared recently on either our FaceBook business page, our Instagram feed or on our FaceBook Group page
(For LARGER images: Click on each individual pic)
Ray McCoy said that “the magical time has come” & that’s why he created the Harry Potter version of our Guardian design.
And since his DIL LOVES Harry Potter, what better way to tell her that he loves her than to give her this amazing bag?

Christine Suruda said that this Sling Along beauty is her 1st SKD bag. She plans on making up her next Sling Along in a black & white version of this fabric as a unisex option! Can’t wait to see it!
Cora Bray said she had so much fun making this ErgoMatic, that she definitely plans on making MORE!

Kathy Morse created this Sling Along as a special birthday present for her granddaughter!
Ray McCoy used the “Feline Frolic” fabric by Laurel Burch for his latest bag, a Flaptastic!

Jo Fowler chose this rose emblazoned fabric in honor of the Tyler Texas rosebuds!
Her OutBreaker is really AMAZING!
Cindy Trombley used Riley Blake fabrics to fashion herself an AMAZING travel. This Sling Along is destined to be a star on the road as soon as we’re able to travel to fun destinations again!

And last but certainly not least, Rose Vitale sent me this picture of her Sling Along which I found to be mesmerizing! It’s SO rich and classic!

Rally squirrels. Rally geese. Rally seagulls. The lore of animals causing groundskeepers headaches and the fans joy is strong in baseball. Our newest addition to the canon: an adorable cat who ran across the field after the Colorado Rockies broke up Trevor Bauer’s no-hitter at Coors Field.
