What's been going on...Anniversary SALE

Oilcloth picnic tote
Some or our customers have been creating fun projects - a picnic / roll-up tote for summer concerts in the park?  This one has oilcloth on one side just in case the grass is damp - not that could happen in our neck of the woods!  And a fun inside storage pocket to stash your favorite beverage...What a fun gift to give and receive!
Inside Picnic tote

My dear friend Octavia passed away several years ago, she is pictured below with one of her early quilts.  She produced some beautiful projects, and her amazing stash was distributed far and wide....well between life and jobs and kids and dogs etc., happening for the rest of us, the memorial quilt we had intended to do for her family never got done.  Until now.  So although the occasion was not a happy one - the resulting quilt feels like a huge accomplishment and is truly appreciated at the receiving end.   It is a big relief to have it done - thanks to O's quilting friends from the past, now Two Thimbles customers.  I delivered the quilt last month to Octavia's mom and she was so happy and appreciative to receive it.  Thank-you so much to everyone who helped move this project along for me!   We miss you Octavia!!

And here is a bright and cheerful something fun I completed recently...not a store sample for a change...actually a gift for my mom who loves red and orange.  This table runner features a gorgeous poppy ribbon down the middle, hand-dyed sateen and jacquard fabrics from my collection of hand-dyed Judy Robertson fabrics....and a piece of printed lawn I received from Octavia's stash...This was a fun, quick project and not in a traditional color palette!
