Interesting Week

I will say it has been an interesting week.  Monday through wednesday they had the main road to the shop blocked as they repaved the road.  It looks nice now but sure created a lot of noise etc. for those three days. 

If that wasn't bad enough when I pulled up at the shop tuesday morning, coming in the back way, it was to the sight of half of the roof of the building off and a construction crew at the back of the shop with half of the parking spots blocked off for their work and wires, hoses etc. hanging everywhere.  I had been informed a couple of months ago that the roof was going to be done at sometime but no date was provided.  Imagine my surprise to come up on that.

Needless to say we didn't have many customer the last few days as it was a challenge to get to the shop and parking.  Glad to say that the roof is also now completed and looks great. 

Reminder that today is first friday in Leonardtown with shops staying open until 8:00 p.m., a band on the square and many specials around town.  Olde Towne Stitchery has pre-cuts (charms, jelly rolls, layer cakes and already cute fat quarters) on sale today and tomorrow for 20% off.  Come in and enjoy the savings on your next project and join us for light refreshments and this evening a make and take scissor case.

We will also have the Quilter's by the Bay quilt guild raffle quilt on display.  It is a beautiful blue and white quilt that was quilted by the local Amish.  Be sure to buy a couple of tickets if you stop by for a chance on this wonderful quilt. 


  1. You have had a busy week around your shop. These First Fridays in Leonardtowne sound like fun. Wish I could be around for one of them. Dou you have any Kansas Troubles by Moda fabrics? Not so easy finding their neutrals! I need some more to finish my current project "Kaktus". Sandi

    1. Most of our neutrals are P&B or Northcott but I will be sure and look when I get in the shop today.

  2. I can't believe the roadwork made it that bad for you! I'm sorry that sounds like such a hassle for business, it would drive me crazy for those 3 days more then likely.

    1. I don't really think the road would have been a big deal, just the road combined with the new roof combined with some construction a couple of buildings away that I really felt like I was in a construction zone. Things were much better yesterday.
