Reno Update: Sewer

Can you see the branch that is stuck in the ground? That silly little branch took out our sewer line. 
The big a$$ root ball did its share of damage to the sewer as well. 
After 23 days of limited flushing and other outgoing plumbing we got a entirely new sewer line.
Yah! No more showering at the neighbors house!!
This is the most disgusting place ever!!
Irving is closing her up! Such hard work.
Look at how big those chunks of tree are.
I thought they looked like building blocks for a baby giant.

Book Tour Stop #2

Meet & Greet with Author Kelly McCants
This Thursday, Sept 15, 5-7PM

From the Sew To Speak blog:
While in town for Columbus' annual Country Living Fair, author Kelly McCants has set aside some time to visit with us at the shoppe. She'll be bringing samples from her beautiful new book, Sewing with Oilcloth, as well as sharing projects, tips and tricks on working with oilcloth, laminates and chalk cloth! In the meantime take a look at this super cute video she made introducing her book and stop by Kelly's blog, ModernJune to learn a little more about her.

***PLUS: We will be GIVING AWAY some very sweet oilcloth bundles in her honor!***

County Living Fair, Ohio 2011

Only one week until we arrive at the Ohio County Living in the pretty Ohio Village in Columbus, Ohio! I am so excited, I can't wait! This show is a m a z i n g! Save up all your mad money and get ready for some darn fine shopping!

Modern June Booth #102
This year Modern June will be a little boutique, we'll have two tents filled with my regular  oilcloth goodies, Sewing with Oilcloth books, over 40 bolts of oilcloth along with other great crafters from Richmond and Columbus. I'll be joining forces with my boyfriends from Feathernesters. Marc and Tony will be bringing a ton of small furniture, vintage goodies, cool retro signage and other hand crafted goodies.
I'll also have lots of little gnome couples and bird bowls from Tasha McKelvey. The Country Living Editors just love them so we are honored to bring them while Tasha's running around Europe next week.

My Columbus friend, Trish Preston from Two Pea's in a Pod, will be there cutting oilcloth. She's also going to bring a bunch of her Sprout patterns as well. I am so thankful for her and her friends, it'll be so nice to have extra helping hands on Friday and Saturday.
"An Oilcloth Fiesta for Every Season"
At noon on Saturday, September 17th I'll be doing a demo on the Main Stage. I'll use the projects from my book Sewing with Oilcloth to decorate the stage for a party and then I'll show you which prints I like best for each season.
Book Signing!
Immediately following the presentation, I'll be signing books that The Hall at 1:00. Please feel free to bring your copy of Sewing with Oilcloth or pick one up at the show. I can't wait to meet you all.
The great news is that we get to do all of this again in Atlanta at the County Living Fair - South! So all you southern girls save the date and I'll see you at Stone Mountain.
