Mykonos Marble Quilt

During the hurricane, Quill T. Basket was alone at the shop.  He needed to find places to hide from the scary storm.

The Mykonos Marble Quilt is made from Northcott Stonehenge Aphrodite fabric. We've made one for the shop. We have the fabric here, and it will be available on our website soon.  The pattern and kit are also available!

The Dorrian Joke of the Week:

What's the difference between the swine flu and the bird flu?

One needs an oink-ment and the other needs a tweet-ment!
