I have returned from a fantastic little four day vacation in the Rocky Mountains yesterday and would like to show you some of my treasures that I found on my trip. If you are going that way maybe you will find some treasures too!
this post that she wrote about it.
Anyway, back to the shop in Jasper... everything in the "Stychen Tyme" shop is currently 30% off as the shop owner is closing her business at the end of June. We asked why she was closing and were told that although the business is very successful the owner would like to close after 13 years and have time for herself. She is retiring in a sense.
When I got home there were more goodies in the mail! Remember I was part of "Giveaway Day" earlier this month? Well, I entered many of the giveaways too and I was very fortunate to win a few. My first prize has arrived in the mail and was gorgeous patterns by Carrie Payne of www.believemagic.com She has her patterns for sale if you are interested. I am absolutely thrilled to have won and can't wait to get started sewing these.
The winner of my jelly roll giveaway lives in Norway and she sent me an email to thank me for the giveaway prize. It got to her from here in Canada in 12 days including weekends! I am happy it was so fast.

I am a big fan of her work and pre-ordered this book from Indigo. So, I guess I have a lot of sewing, knitting and cross stitching ahead of me. First I will sit down and look through my new book and patterns though. I hope you get a chance to check out some of the shops and sales I mentioned (I am not sponsored by anyone) and I hope I get to check out the quilt shop in Hinton on my next trip. That's another one I keep missing.
