Day 1: Henry Glass Summer Party!


Welcome to the first day of the Henry Glass Summer Party! We thought that we'd invite some friends over to visit [that would be you!], sit back and have a little fun. We'll have a fabric giveaway each day and some designers are planning their own fun on their own blogs! Thanks for visiting!

Today we have Amy Hamberlin from the Katie Cupcake Pattern Co., and Jacquelynne Steves from Noble Wife. Enjoy!


Best vacation spot:

Well, this is a toss up. We love McCall Idaho and have gone every year for quite a while, but last summer we rented a lakehouse nestled along the bank of Lake Couer d'Alene. It is located in Idaho, pretty close to the Buggy Barn ladies. It is such a beautiful place with lots of green trees, gorgeous lakes, and fabulous hiking and bike trails. I went on my first bike ride (we rode about 10 miles). It was fantastic! Our kids are still talking about it. We boated on the lake where I finally got up on the wake board. The kids fished, and the adults ate at a couple of wonderful restaurants in Spokane. The memories we made on Lake Couer d'Alene were sweet and wonderful. As for this summer, I am flying out to Florida to find a temporary residence. Crazy, I know but it will be fun. I will share all the great spots in Florida once I get settled in.




My favorite summer drink:
well ... mmmmmmm ... do I have to tell the truth about this one ... ?

My favorite ice cream flavor:
licorice

Let's see what Jacquelynne is doing this summer!


Best vacation spot:
England. I love the castles, thatched roof houses, manor homes, rolling countryside, and stunning coastline. I got to visit a home where they did filming for the movie Sense and Sensibility starring Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet and Hugh Grant.

Favorite summer drink:
Anything fruity and blended!

Favorite ice cream flavor:
Chocolate in any way, shape, or form is quite acceptable!


Jacquelynne knows it's summer but she is in a Christmas in July mood! She is doing a big giveaway with holiday themed fabric and patterns.
