Something new in the Bakeshop!

I've been busy baking again, not in the kitchen but in the sewing room! Look at the display at the store. I switched it out on Thursday. We are now featuring Simple Abundance by Bonnie & Camille. This was such a fun line to work with. The quilt is called Abundance and is from Camille's pattern line called Thimbleblossom's. I will be teaching this class in our Bakeshop club on November 21st. Come join us for lots of fun and of course you won't want to miss the yummy treats.The tabletopper is a Disappearing 9-Patch that was featured on the Moda Bakeshop website. This is also going to be a class on November 5th. It's not to late to sign up for this one either.

Camille was featured on the Bakeshop with this fun peppermint swirl pincushion. We will have these in kits if you want to stop in and pick one up for yourself or maybe two or three for gifts. Let's start thinking about Christmas shall we?

Here are the pretty fabrics all in a row. We have already sold out of some of them, that's just how fun they are.
This is the apron on your lovely mannaquin. I think it's about time she has a name don't you? If she's going to be a permanent fixture here in the bakeshop she needs a name. What should it be? Can anyone help me with this? This could be a contest couldn't it. Well let's make it one and "SIMPLE" at that! Just leave a simple little comment and a suggestion on a name for our apron manny!
Look how easy these hot pads are. I used leftover layer cakes from the quilt to make them and I used the twill tape that it is tied up with for the hanger. Simple huh! I think this might have to be a Simply Sewing 101 project in the next couple months.

Oh,and this is how I kitted the quilt kits for the Abundance quilt, in a bakery cake box of course! This quilt uses a layer cake so I thought it would be fun to put it in a cake box, pretty clever huh?
I don't know what will be featured in the bakeshop for November, but I'm sure it will be something just as delightful as Simple Abundance. Don't forget to leave a comment. The prize will be one of the kits for the peppermint pincushions. That doesn't sound fair does it? Some of you might not sew, enter anyway. I will come up with another prize if you are the winner. I will close this little contest on Friday evening.

Love the display need to come in and take a look at it. I think the name should be Patty queen of whatever new pattern you put on her.

I just found your site and love to sew and attempt to bake. I think the name should be Molly on the apron. Cute stuff.
