Sweet Home Quilt Company ("bad" Melisa) is celebrating the 5th birthday of the shop last night and today. Last night the party started on the porch at 7 p.m. with food, games, prizes, and lots of fun! At about 8 p.m. the doors of the shop opened for lots of fantastic buys!! The good buys continue today with 10% off for buying 1-5 yards and up to 50% off if you buy 25+ yards!!
There was a little discussion in the parking lot as to whether Carol and I or Sarah got there first, but it really didn't matter.
Melisa was so funny. She'd open the door, put out something like cookies, then close and lock the door. Then, she'd come back, put out the bucket of water, and close and lock the door again.
Do you see that bundle of fabric on the right side of the food table? That is a prize!! Someone who arrived late came into this room and saw me sitting on the floor filling out all these tickets. She said, "What are you doing?" I said, "If you got here early enough, and if you had enough junk in your purse, then you got all these tickets to fill out towards winning a prize." Now, let's see if I win!! The drawing is tonight!
