It’s been a long time since we’ve written here! You know how you sometimes really have good intentions, but you just don’t make it happen? I have the same situation with exercising. I was never lucky enough to find any exercise I enjoyed. Several years ago, I discovered I could watch Sue Hausmann in my netbook while I walked on the treadmill, and I even went longer than my target time, to see the end of her show, America Sews!
Unfortunately, my best laid plans to continue with exercising went by the wayside.
As did posts on this blog!
So now I’m walking on the treadmill again, (still watching sewing and quilting shows on my iPad as I go,) and getting back to our blog posts! I’ve been promised help, which is good anyway, because that way we have more of a variety of topics. Look for us about every two weeks.
This one is a short one, brought about by forgetting my own tip! I wanted to pre-wash something I was working on for Quilts of Valor. (We have QoV Sew Days at the shop on second Thursdays of the month starting at 10am- everyone welcome!) Anyway, I just threw the fabric in the washer and dryer, and this is what I got!
Please read my tip in a previous post on how to prevent this from happening!
And for my fellow cat lovers, here’s a phone photo of my beautiful Cagney, sister to Lacy. The phone’s propped up on my Gadget Cushion, 909270. More about that next time I write.

Did you know that you can see what’s new at Erica’s almost every day?? Karen does a great job of updating that page every time she adds something. Sometimes it’s brand new fabric, books, tools, accessories or yarn, and sometimes it’s what just went up on our Rummage Page or Bargain Ends of Bolts. Sometimes it’s something that we expect in soon that you can pre-order. Any page of our website has a column on the left that tells you where to find things, and all you have to do is look for “New Items” in purple, and click to find out! Many people have told us they bookmark that page, so they’re always up to date!
