Halloween Haunts...My DAY!

Good morning!!!
I hope you have all enjoyed the hop so far!
This is one of my favorite ones of the year...

For those of you that don't know...
I have bunnies...they live in my  house
just like any other household member.

There are three of them and so in honor of them...
I introduce to you...

Miss Boo Bunny!

She found her way onto a new bag I made
just for the Houston Quilt Market this week.

My friends know I do not travel without 
my bunnies why should this time be any
different....Little Miss Boo Bunny is going to 
love seeing everything this week and will
keep me company!

The inside of my little bag includes pockets...with the 
prettiest orange dotted fabric...
I wish the photos showed off how really 
bright and cheery this bag is...
It's been raining here all week and so 
the photos had to be taken inside...

I added my new shop name on the front...
just for fun and am excited to take it with 
me today to Market.

And there she all of her Halloween glory....

This is was a fun project...

Thank you to Marian for braving the world of 
Blog Hopping for all of us...
You have done a tremendous job!!!

Please visit our other ladies today 
as they have also done a terrific job!

Happy Halloween!

It Seams To Be Sew Grand Opening WINNER for week 4!!!

Over the past few weeks, I have been
asked why I opened an online shop...
and then that is always followed up by...
and you LEFT your FULL-TIME job
to do it?

For years, my sweet husband and I have
been building a home in the Hill Country in Texas.
We wanted a place in the country to move
to and get out of the city...(Houston)...not that we
have anything against Houston or Sugar Land
where we live in the burbs...but all our 
children are grown and gone and the Hill Country 
was calling our  name.

and yes...that's me...but the hubby built all the rest
all by himself! I just handed him tools...
When I started blogging, I knew that someday we would move
and I would want to open my own 
little fabric shop where ladies or anyone could
come and learn how to quilt, laugh, and 
enjoy one another's company.

It Seams To Be Sew Fabric Shop is
the beginning of that dream...
and Yes.
I did leave a full-time job to do it.
Believe me, it requires it so you have the time
to get it all up and running and moving forward.
It also allows me the time to create in the studio.
That's the best part!

As we near the end of the Grand Opening next week,
I hope you will bookmark our little store
and check with us often. We promise to offer the
best fabrics, notions and service...because I know,
(from experience) that you could have shopped 
anywhere else online and because of that,
I will do my very best to add a little personal
touch to your you will come back again.

Thank you to all of you that have already 
stopped by and signed on as customers...
I value each and everyone of you!!!

for Our Grand Opening Winner for
Week # 4!!!

I let my sweet hubby 
pull the name from a hat of 
all that entered here on the blog 
and Facebook...
But the WINNER IS:

PATTY D. from N.C.
I am emailing you now for your
mailing address!!!!
