Is It Spring Yet?

Happy Spring,

How is it possible that April first is already here? It seems like we just put away our Christmas decorations and Christmas fabric is starting to make an appearance. Time surely goes much faster today than it used to. Mark and I have been traveling a little more than usual. It's nice but then I get nervous about the store. So home it will be for awhile and I am happy with that.

We recently went on a trip to Tempe Az. to see our son and his wife. Spring training was in full swing. We weren't able to see a Giants game but we did see the Oakland A's play with the Rockies. Mark caught a fly ball! We had a great time. We also managed to go to The Arizona Quilt Guild Quilt Show. It was a great show with lots of pretty quilts. We are considering the possibility of vendoring the show next spring. Of course we managed a few trips to the mall.
Lots of good food and time spent with family. All the cactus were getting ready to bloom, of course the first bloom opened the day we left. Mark was able to help our son Mark put in a sprinkling system for their garden. They like to do projects together when we visit, and a lot of great cooking. What a gift to be able to visit with your kids and enjoy that time together. We love you Mark and Kelly!!!

Two days after we got home we were off to vendor the Yuba City Quilt Show. What a great show and a nice bunch of quilters. We leave in a few days to vendor the Auburn quilt show. We are both hoping for sunshine this time instead of rain.

Lots of fun new fabrics, projects, and thread have arrived at Morning Star Quilts. The store is in full Spring mode and waiting to welcome you when you come to visit.

The annual Quilt Rush Shop Hop starts on April 13 - April 17. There are great prizes to be won as well as 14 shops to tickle your fancy. Hope you plan to atend. For more information go to

God Bless,
