Stop. Go. Quilt. Sew!

This past weekend was our daughters BOOK SIGNING in Gunter, Texas.  Marty and husband as well as several other ladies served up a great treat for everyone at "Stomping Grounds Coffee and Boutique".  It was awesome.  Cookies that matched Angela's new book were created by Marty and staff... outstanding sandwiches, desserts and coffees as well as lemonades, teas and more.  
They even serve great snow cones!!!  I have never been a true snow cone customer, 
but I have to say, with the heat... I tried one and these are the best I have ever had.  
They are shaved ice and sweet.... Perfect for that hot day!

 Now on with the Book Signing!  Angela Yosten has always been a hard worker.  When she sets her mind to a task, she makes sure that she is an over achiever.  Nothing so so with her.  She is quite a beauty.  She has written many patterns, seven so far are in print and available at our store as well as many others.  This is just the tip of the iceberg of what she does.  She works full time designing Moda's website and oversees the Moda Bake Shop.  Let's see, she has 3 beautiful children, which I am not exaggerating when I say they are the best... because I am their proud Granny.  Angela was born into a workaholic family, so there is no time for hum drum in our life.  
Angela has carried on the torch, as has our other daughter.  Gotta love them! 
Here is the link to see all her patterns...
Angela also participated in 2 other books before writing her own.  Fresh Fabric Treats by the Moda Bake Shop Chefs and  Modern Blocks by Stash Books.  And now her very own...
Angela's book signing was Saturday Aug. 4th... In case you missed it... here are a few highlights of that wonderful afternoon.
 This was just a quick corner of the guests.  We kept these guys creative while our guest of honor was in the book signing area.  Several people stopped by to purchase Angela's new book STOP. GO. QUILT. SEW! and all the guests signed quilt squares to commemorate the occasion.  I'm sure Angela will come up with a very unique way to stitch those into a great memory project.  We all want to wish Angela the best... on her road to fame and her creativity will be scattered everywhere, I am sure.  We are so blessed to have such wonderful children.  To be able to see a bit of the world thru their eyes and lives.  God is so good to us.  We only have to ask!
By the way, the beautiful jewelry that Angela is wearing was designed and created by her 7 year old daughter, Paige.  I think we are going to see more of Paige's creations in the work before we know it.  Oh, and the next picture I want to share with you is Angela and her very proud mother.  ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Congrats, Angela...  You GROW girl!
Party is over... Time to get to work... Thank you to all the followers and guests that came to Angela's book signing.  This is only the beginning of more to come!  Please check out Angela's website at to follow her Online Book Tour this week.  Tell her... her mom sent you!  :)
The end of the day!  Well done!
