Little Lion Judah has discovered the joy of celebrating National Quilting Day! What better way to kick off the weekend than to attend the grand re-opening of our local quilt shop, Pinwheels and Posies, in Dickinson Texas, fondly known as “Peggy’s”.
Exactly 202 days since the devastation of Hurricane Harvey there was a huge party with the theme “We’re Back!”

The doors opened at 10 AM Friday 3/16/18 and according to the photos on Facebook, there was a line at the door awaiting the official opening of the doors! By the time Little Lion Judah arrived around 10:30 AM there was a fabulous crowd!
Pinwheels and Posies Quilt Shop Is Open For Business!
And what a celebration it was! It was the same yet different. Most reassuring was that the flavor of the shop was familiar – beautiful quilts on the wall, fabulous kits, nice notions. What’s different is the layout and enlargement of the facilities. Due to the hurricane, the “neighbor” next door did not return, and Peggy was able to take in that space.
Fabric Shopping Is Best Done With Friends!
Most reassuring were the familiar faces and the welcoming smiles of both staff and customers. No one minded standing in line as we were all just excited to be there.
I enjoyed shopping with my daughter in law Katie to pick out some black & white fabrics for her special quilt. While in line with my friend Jane I decided that I really liked a couple of her choices, so I just had to shop from her pile!
Yep, I went home with focus fabrics for a new bedroom quilt and possibly curtains once my home and studio can have its own grand re-opening after my Harvey reconstruction.
The grand reopening celebrations are continuing today and Sunday then it’s back to business as usual. What a wonderful thought – that of a new normality!
