In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.  And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven and rolled back the stone from the door and sat upon it.


And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.  He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.  Come, see the place where the Lord lay. {Matthew 28}


Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and to your God.


Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.  And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands and his side.  Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord……


Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. {John 20}


Happy Resurrection weekend!


A dash of reality (+ a sale!)



We came home to lots of sewing, Easter choir practices, three happy dogs, and warmer weather.  We've been trying to catch up with all of them.  When we are in the midst of filling custom orders, reorganizing the fabric shelves, inventory-ing fabrics, and getting new fabrics in our studio looks something like the picture above (uh-huh.  Some days it's worse.)

Easter will be here before you know it, and we have spent the last two nights practicing for our program.  We have one program already planned for Sunday night to perform at a local retirement home, and we'll do it again at our home Church on Easter Sunday.  We've had such a great time practicing! 


Working on our fabrics means that there's loads of new fabrics in the $6-a-yard section on our website so go check it out!  We are also having a 25% off sale on ALL Tanya Whelan fabrics — Valentine Rose, Sunshine Rose, Rosey, and the brand spanking new Slipper Roses!  Sale ends April 19th, so grab anything you want while you can.

Back again soon,
