Beach Babes wrapped in Crabs

When I arrived at work today, there were crabs on the counter...

I do remember seeing these crabs before at Quilt Market in Salt Lake City.

That was the day I met Emily Herrick.  She designed this fabric collection.

A few minutes later the mailman delivered a big box. It is from Utah. Hey, I've been there.

My mom said I could open it. It is like my birthday all the time in the store.

I think it is a quilt.

A big quilt.

Wow!!! look at this.  It is made with the same fabric.

Well what do you think?  My mom told me a very nice lady named Lu made it.  And she knows Emily.  Can you believe it:)

I decided if this is a beach quilt I better take my shoes off.

And now I'm busted. Guess who just walked in?  Bonnie, my music therapist.

My mom said, "Oh perfect, you're just in time to model a new apron we received." And look, a cute little dress too. I would have worn that when I was little.  We look like two beach babes wrapped in crabs:) 

The fabric is called Going Coastal and is now available at our store.  The quilt is by Lu For The Love Designs.  The Apron is by the Apron Addict.  The dress is by Jam N'Jelli.

No shoes is the best way to model a beach quilt. Y'all are lookin' good!

Yes, it is like a birthday every time you're in the store.

The Crabs were fantastic.
