Thanksgiving should be ever day of the year...accept for the amount of food that I eat!

November 30, 2009

Good morning to all!

I do hope each of you had a great Thanksgiving and got to spend time reviewing your blessings in life! Our sermon last night at church was about giving thanks to God is everything all the time! It was a great reminder to me to make sure I have an attitude of gratefulness!
What is happening at The Lair this week?? Many fun things!!
Kay has been getting mighty creative these days and made this sample... it is from a new designer we are handling called Wednesday's Best --- she is primitive and fun! Kay is amazing in her ability to go from Primitive to the most detailed applique bom to tote bags! (maybe when I am 100 I will be able to do one of these well!!)

Then Darlene must have created a couple of more hours in her day and she made up a Simply Nine in the Jo Morton Collection of Stafford County and then a fun ABC quilt!! Both of these are kitted and ready for us to share!

Jo's Little Women Club #9 will start in February, it will be on the 2nd Tuesday of each month with Rheba and the 2nd Saturday with Chris Clardy. We are excited about the possibilities of what each person will create with all the wonderful lines Jo has had out (and with another new line coming in December! Yippee!!)

We also had the best time getting Janice Johnson of Wolly Woolen's booked for March - she is a rug hooking teacher and will be getting the final details down on what she is teaching! But we do know she is bringing Julie Kiffin with her and it is scheduled for March 18th - 20th! I brought back some of her patterns for you hookers out there! Also, Rita brought in some new patterns also this weekend!

Then we had the nicest email from Lynette Anderson and she is working on the cost and timing to come to Arkansas on her way to Spring Market! She is a wonderful fun, funky, primitive fabric designer, pattern designer and just plan fun girl! As she tells us more we will tell you more!

Thank you for reading our blog and enjoy the coupon for 20% off of your next purchase at The Rabbit's Lair! The coupon is good for the week of Dec 1 - 7th of 2009!

Only Because of His Grace,
Mary and The Rabbit's (Kay, Darlene, Debby, Susan, Diane, Nedra, Kathleen, Nellie, Rheba) that really make it happen!
