It's the end of the school year & I'm swamped!
I apologize for slacking off in the blog posting department, but I still have another week of school where I'm staying busy with grades, last minute field trips, & mentoring a new teacher.
Then I've been ordering new fabric for the shop the past couple of weeks.
It looks like new bolts will begin arriving next week!
The new June Class Calendar is posted on our website & our Mermaid teachers have a bunch of new classes ready for June. Check it out & let me know if you'd like to be on our mailing list.
I promise I'll be back & catch up soon!

Bags are the big deal at Calico Mermaid this spring.
The Pockets a Plenty pattern, taught by Jenny has been our biggest seller, but Margaret's Mesh Bag Class is a close second.

My mom taught me so much.
She told me I could do anything if I tried
She taught me to enjoy creating in all kinds of ways - sewing, crafting, cooking, music.She was an early-day Martha Stewart, recreating recipes & ideas from magazines with her own twist.
If it wasn't fun, she made it fun.
She made everything beautiful & found the best in everything & everybody.
She wasn't afraid to work hard & make things happen.
Often when I'm selecting fabric in the shop, I notice a piece she would love & think what she'd do with it. Or how she'd laugh at some. When new tools arrive, I think of how she'd improvise & achieve the same effect without buying the tool at all. Many times I wish I could show her a book or pattern.
I think of her everyday & remember her love.
I'm very lucky to have had such a wonderful mom.
