Loopy Lately

We’ve been busy around here, packing up fabric orders and helping in-store fabric customers. (Did you hear that we’re closing out fabric and growing our yarn shop?) We are condensing down the shelves of fabrics, moving empty shelves out, and opening more space up on the floor. I keep trying to think of a way to just take that whole Kona wall home with me. I had to settle for getting half yards of a lot of the colors. I love Kona.

We have such gorgeous quilts for sale, that were part of our Strip Clubs! (I already brought several quilts home to my house. I love having quilts made by the Loopy Elves.) Do you see one that you need? You can call us and inquire about them. We can ship to you!

It’s sad to see the fabric going, but it’s also exciting to see the new yarn making its way in! The stockroom is filling up with boxes of yarn. Of course we still need to make room for it on the floor, but everyone is working hard through this transition. The Loopy Elves are amazing.

Speaking of the Loopy Elves, Elf Cheryl made this delicious Spaghetti Salad this fall, and shared the recipe with me. It’s so good – a taste of smoky bacon in there. Might be just what you need this weekend.

Cheryl’s Spaghetti Salad

1 pound spaghetti noodles, cooked al dente
1 pound bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
3 green onions, chopped
3 very ripe, large beefsteak tomatoes
3 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
Mayonnaise (not salad dressing)

Put tomatoes in a large pot of water. Bring to a boil and then turn the heat down to simmer, so the skins come off and the tomatoes are heated through.

Cook spaghetti and drain. Place in a large bowl with bacon, green onions, salt, pepper, and garlic. Mix well.

When tomatoes are ready, remove one at a time from the water. Remove the skins and center core. Chop up and add to the bowl. Add mayo as needed. (If your tomatoes are really juicy, you might only need a couple of tablespoons of mayo.)

Serve hot or cold.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
