As the Bobbin Winds Email Newsletter : Spring Time Is Here! : Volume 4:01:2017


Dearest Country Traditions Friends,

♪♫Spring is in the Air!♪♫
If you have been outside these last few days, then you would start to notice the budding of the trees and the sprouting of leaves. The rainy season is upon us, allowing us time to use those dreary days to enjoy some quality time with our machines. Why not start a few new projects for the Easter Holiday?
Hello April
What better way to start off the season than to join us for the start of not one, but two NEW Saturday Samplers. "The Good Life" is a wonderful quilt that was inspired by the 150th Birthday of Nebraska. Learn different techniques as you dive deeper into Nebraska history. "Starry Sky" is a a quilt from beyond the stars. It's amazing contrast will keep your eye dancing for ages.

If you love embroidery, then you will love the Kimberbell Embroidery Retreat. Enjoy 2 whole fun days of crafting in the hoop learning new techniques all done in the hoop, such as paper-piecing, applique and cutwork. Enjoy playing with different mediums. Why work with just cotton materials, when you can work with towels, Puffy foam, and even cardstock. The possibilities are endless.

It's time for you to break out those PHD's and UFO's from Classes, March Mysteries & Saturday Samplers you have participated in and get them finished and ready for the 2nd Annual Customer Quilt Show. You could win the Viewer's Choice Awards, and a $50.00 Country Traditions Gift Certificate. Registrations and Entry forms must be turned into Country Traditions by April 29th, 2017.

If you already know all the basics, Join us for "Shooting Star," this quilt uses the NEW Serendipity Accuquilt GO! Qube.

Pu
t Wind & Willow on the table this Easter! Enjoy crafting fun cheeseballs in
light of the Holiday. Create the fun bunny rabbit using one of the Sweet Cheeseball mixes. Use whipping cream, chocolate shavings, or even coconut savings to add a little texture.

Wind&Willow
Duck Cheeseball
Carrot Cheeseball
Savory Chick

Make the super cute chick by simply forming your cheeseball into the shape
of ball. Sprinkle the top with shredded cheese or even crushed cheese-its. Cut
and remove seeds from one large red or yellow pepper into the pieces for the beak, wings and feet. Take one black olive, cut in  half. Place the olive pieces for the eyes.

Savory Carrot

Make the fun carrot by forming
your cheeseball into the shape of a rounded triangle. Sprinkle the top with shredded cheese or even crushed cheese-its. Add a small bunch of kale
or parsley on the end to create the top
of the carrot. Then dip in and enjoy.
For best results use any of the Savory Cheeseball mixes. Serve with crackers
or chips to your liking.
Savory Cheeseball
Sweet Bunny

Make this Sweet Bunny by simply forming your cheeseball into a mound. Cover your cheeseball with whipped cream, coconut shavings or even chocolate curls for a little texture. Use frosting to add
a face. You can create the
ears with construction paper
or you could cut a strawberry
or a banana slice in half or use
a cookie and coat just the outside with the same coating as your cheeseball. Serve with graham crackers, vanilla wafers
or any cookies of your choosing.
