We're bacckkkkk.... well... kind of!

Hi Everyone !!!

We just got back into Florida from "really cold Wisconsin".  Man...what a great trip!  We had almost 40 gals from all over the US to join Lisa Bonjean - Primitive Gatherings and Paula Barnes & Mary Ellen Robinson - Red Crinoline Quilts along with us for a little bit of "Cotton & Wool" - sewin' and stitchin' ..... shoppin' and eatin'.... and oh yes... there was the LAUGHTER!

I met so many wonderful new quilting friends!  What Great Fun!!  We've already begun working on a repeat retreat for next year... I just believe it might be an annual event!

Now... Vicky and I are getting ready to leave for California.  We are attending a retreat in Temecula, California with our friends from Utah and Arizona... we plan on getting some sewing done!  Then it's back home to celebrate Christmas... where has the time flown this year?

We wanted to take this opportunity to wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving and pray that each of you get to spend time with your family.

Vicky, Heather and I are working on exciting new adventures for all of you next year... along with offering you fun new ideas from our website!  Keep watching after the new year!

Oh... yes... I almost forgot... we have also contacted  new locations for retreats!  Shipshewana Amish Country and Callaway Gardens.... and then... how about boarding the NEW Royal Caribbean "Harmony of the Seas" -  brand new to their fleet of ships!!  More news as the details are worked out!

Olde Green Cupboard Designs - new Destinations for FUN!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Look What We've Been Working On!!!

It's been along time since we've just chatted with all of you on what the three of us gals have been working on!  It just seems like there are not enough days in the week to get everything finished!

Let's start with SPECIAL EVENTS!!  We will be adding another section to our blog that will give a schedule of special events, classes, etc. where you know what in the heck we are doing and going!
Even we have a challenging time keeping up with it. 

Then...we've been designing like crazy for our K & K partners - we just finished up with our fall and Halloween (for 2017) and now we'll be moving to Christmas....a fun time to design for!  From time to time we'll show you some sneak previews!  Hey... here are some RIGHT NOW!



These are all ornaments that K & K will be making for their showrooms.  Then shop owners will visit market and order them to sell in their stores.  This is ssssssssooooooo rewarding and perfect for all of us.  We are NOT... "production" gals... you know where you have to make tons of one item!  We like to design one thing and then move on to the next great idea we've decided to make while working on the last one... our brains never turn off... and there are some days when it's pretty overwhelming.

However, I wouldn't trade it for anything... a great chance to get all of these ideas out of my brain and onto paper and eventually into a product we can share with others.

And.... then I've been teaching basket weaving again.... I just LOVE to weave.  It's been such a long time and I've discovered it's like riding a bike... you just hop on and it all comes back to you.  So.. keep watching the blog and FACEBOOK for new classes coming up!




Then... we have Chalking!!!  OH HOW I LOVE THIS! 

These are some fall samples we will be starting on.... 



and then.... on to Christmas Chalking!!!! 
I'm working on some designs for our front doors.... Samples coming soon!!!

Well... that's just a tiny bit of what's happening at the Olde Green Cupboard between all three of us....
me (Gloria), Vicky and Heather.
I'll save more for a later posting....

Keep those needles moving....

Chat soon!!!

Hi gang... don't forget... our Harvest Mystery Quilt Blog Hop has already begun!!!  Rhonda McCray - Farmhouse Threads started us off on June 17th... make sure you visit each of us and get your free pattern + we have kits prepared for you to purchase as well!!

For 12 weeks, beginning  June 17th, we will share with you free patterns from some of our favorite designers to complete a Harvest Mystery Quilt just in time for the season.  Each week, one designer will post the pattern to make a Harvest block using wool appliqué on cotton fabric.  The patterns are free for you to download and print, and kits will be for sale individually by the designers.  Week 12 will include the instructions to put all of these blocks together with some fun borders to complete your quilt.  Finishing kits will be available from Farmhouse Threads.  Make sure you sign up for each designer’s blog/website to receive the free patterns. 

Please share our blog hop with your friends and have them follow along!

Call your friends and create a "stitchin' group"... then once a week get together and work on your blocks at the same time!  It's great fun and a super way to encourage each other to finish this project --  TOGETHER!  Meet at one central location ... or at each other's homes... make it a "brown bag lunch"!  Everyone is responsible for bringing their own lunch - giving the hostess a break from cooking!  Now.... how much better can it get...NO COOKING...GREAT FRIENDS... AND PLAYING WITH WOOL-N-NEEDLE!

HAVE A GREAT TIME PLAYING ON OUR WEB SITES AND READING OUR BLOGS!
