Happy New Year

Snow is softly falling outside...2009 is receding into the background of yesteryear. Every December in my personal journals I reflect back on the year and write out the lessons learned, obstacles subdued, obstacles not subdued and try to make some sense of the passing of time. It is amazing to me when I get down on myself and feel like I haven't accomplished enough physically, spiritually and mentally that upon reflection there has been some major growth. I thank the Lord for his keeping power in all of the twists and turns of life this last year. I hope everyone has an amazing 2010. Happy New Year!

Some of the grandkids!

This was an amazing Meet Me In Paris quilt from one of our customers that was hanging at the Home Machine Quilting Show in Sandy (2007) that won Teacher's Choice. The quilting on it was amazing!

Tory showing off her truck before she wrapped it around a tree and the Jaws of Life had to get her out of it. Ken was only a few minutes behind her coming home from a show. He freaked out, backed up and convinced the cop that he was her Dad and to let him through. He said never before had he experienced the feeling he did here when he saw her truck and didn't know if she was dead or alive. This is the darling child that always keeps up guessing!

Wow...I've finally started a blog! This blog is dedicated to all of our wonderful customers out there who have made The Scrappy Appleyard what it is today. Without you and your support we couldn't have become what we are today.

As 2010 starts we are hoping to share with you, what it is like being on the road, with all its ups and downs, sharing with you the wonderful people we meet as well as what it is like to run a Quilt Shoppe and also what I do as a designer to get my inspiration. Sprinkled with this and that of what is going on in the family seeing you have met most of them on the road. We hope to tickle your fancy, keep you inspired in your own projects and become closer as a Quilting Family as we take this journey together!
