APRIL NEWLETTER




Gee, I hope it starts looking like our logo outside, soon.  Mom gets annoyed with me and my sisters when we play in the mud. She just gives a heavy sigh and says "Bath time!" I don't like getting a bath. So, I'm ready for green grass to roll in and for my pool to get filled up so I can go swimming again.
On April 26, it will be my birthday! I'm going to be 1 years old. Mom & Grandma said it's hard to believe I'm almost 1 already.  I'm hoping to get toys and biscuits for my birthday.


We would like to remind everyone that tomorrow (April 2) is Light up Blue Day. It is to bring awareness to Autism. April is National Autism Month. We would also like you to remember to be patient to parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings and, of course, children with Autism.  They don't mean to act out but they can't help it. Their brains just are not wired like yours and mine & sometimes it's just too much for them.
 We carry puzzle fabric, the symbol for Autism, in our Shop.

Grandma has some interesting classes coming up in April:

Mom and Liz have been working on our website to make it better.  It will take a little while but it's starting to look better and they are trying to get all the stuff on the online store up to date.
I wanted to start my own blog but Mom said it wasn't necessary. She has enough things to keep track of, she doesn't need to supervise a blog, too. I told I thought I was old enough to do it myself. After all, I am going to be 1 years old at the end of the month. She just gave me the Mom look and I guess I'm not going to be able to do that. Darn.                                                   

Guess I'll just have to go take a nap instead of blogging.

We have an absolutely beautiful new quilt on display in our Gallery. It is hand pieced and hand quilted by Maureen Paweloko of Chemung, NY. The photos don't do it justice.
              

Isn't it beautiful? Come in and see this beautiful work of fiber art in person. You will not be disappointed.

Here's hoping for leaves on trees and green grass before the next newsletter.
Have a wonderful Easter! It's this Sunday.

Yours in Quilting,
Obi Wan, Mary Lou and Maryanne
