Hi all!!! We are finally getting back to what seems like normal after our AMAZING Spirit of Christmas retreat in North Carolina. What a fun loving group of ladies we had!!! Plus 20 different products being taught along with some really delicious meals and beautiful views !!! Our hearts are full now and we are so grateful for all the new friends have met.
Yes, plans are underway for more amazing retreats in 2018, so keep watching for details 😊

Also, we wanted to announce I, Heather, have started an online shop with some of my designs and they have been very popular! Several cute things for us quilt / stitching lovers!!! Great unique shirts, project bags, mugs, etc... and I add more designs each week. There are also inspirational and holiday designs that make WONDERFUL gifts! They only take approx 7-10 days to fill the order and receive, so if order soon, you can have them before Christmas 🎄🎅🏻⛄️

Many Blessings!

Hi Everyone!!!

Heather, Vicky & I want to wish each of you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!  This is one holiday that I LOVE TO COOK!  The smell of that Tom Turkey in the oven along with fresh baked pies should be bottled up and sold!

Thanks to each and everyone of you for being a huge part of our family throughout the past years.  It is a blessing each day when I get emails from you or special texts on my phone.  You have truly made out lives fuller, richer, and loved.

Eat well, bless your family and friends, and then.... watch football and take a nap!  Ahhhhh... what better way to relax than when you have a full belly, are around those you love, and hear the football game  in the background! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...............

Blessings and love to each of you!

Gloria, Heather & Vicky

2 DAYS!!!!

oH yESSSSSS!!!!   In just two more days we will be heading to the Jacksonville Airport (with the chickens I might adddddd....) and fly to Nashville then on to Kansas City, Mo!  We are bound for Missouri Star Quilt Company.... 23 of us... for a glorious time of sewing, shopping, laughing.... and making lots of NEW FRIENDS!!

Monday and Tuesday are our two free days to shop for our project fabrics and tour the town.  We may even take in a little antique shopping.... then we can "free" sew for a couple of days.....!  Then Wednesday our retreat begins with our MO Star instructors taking over.  I can't wait to learn the new techniques they have scheduled for us.

I'm having a hard time deciding what colors I want to do all of them in!!!

What a super collection!!!!

I've seen the Pinwheel Arrow quilt on her show and it is so striking!!!  As soon as I finish chatting here... I' going to see if I have some fabric that will coordinate with my new bedroom quilts I'm working on.....  This first one if for my guest bedroom.....  I will be searching for this awesome plaid of the pillows and also used as a ruffle on either the sheet or the quilt... (can't tell for sure) !
Love it!  Of course I also love the "Chicken Dinners" sign above the bed... however, I have other adorable decorations for the room!!

And this sweet room will become my master bedroom

As you can tell.... they are both Ocean Waves and full of half square triangles!!!

so.... I'm off to the fabric closet to see what we have to choose from....

Hugs to all...

Keep those machines "humming" !!!

Headed out for a FUN WEEKEND!!!

Good Morning !!!!

Today is September 28 (Thursday) and we're all ready to head out to Camp Blanding for the weekend!  We have almost 100 gals that will be with us quilting, rug hooking, etc. for a relaxing, FUN time!!

I so enjoy these weekends...they are a bunch of work.... but it's so great to be with a room full of chatty, laughing, happy women.  All of a sudden you'll hear a group of gals all sitting together burst out with laughter... it just makes my heart feel so good!

Then... once this retreat is over... we will be home for a few days and then 25 of us will be heading to Hamilton, Missouri!!!!  Oh Yes... we are spending a week at Missouri Star Quilt Company at their retreat house!  I simply can't wait.....  you know I have a passion for family run businesses and this is one of the great ones!  Jenny (Doan) and her family came from almost loosing everything to being a great success for her business and the small town of Hamilton.  If you've never seen the story of how she began or watched the videos on her website... please do so.  It will simply do your heart good!!  We'll try to post pictures on the Olde Green Cupboard Facebook page!!

As you can see.... not a minute goes by where we are not crazy busy....but that's what makes it so much fun!

Oh... yes... then the weekend after Thanksgiving we will be in Kitty Hawk, NC on the Outer Banks... for out "Spirit of Christmas" Retreat!  We have a FULL HOUSE with this group of gals too and the projects the instructors are making are WONDERFUL!   We have ornaments, wall hangings, lots of wool projects, snowmen, bears, wool hooked ornaments, pins.... 20 projects in all!    I'll post them in another blog.. have to tease you a bit with a "sneak peak".  Our instructors are from all over the United States!
