You can pick up these fun quilts in the store or by giving them a call at 512-257-1269.


I’m in the middle of a computer crisis today. My laptop had critical hard drive failure this weekend and I’m waiting for repair and to see if any of my data can be restored. I am usually faithful about backing up because of all the pictures, patterns and documents I produce. Unfortunately, and insanely, I have not backed up in several months which means if my data can’t be recovered, I will lose design work, photos and documents from those last few months. If it wasn’t shared either online for via email, I won’t have it. I can’t even begin to express how distressing the prospect is!

To detract from the stress, I’m diligently working on cleaning my studio, finishing some charity projects and pushing ahead with 12 for 2012. My August quilt top just needs borders and I’m about to pull September out of the bag.

Hopefully, the quilt therapy will keep me sane until I know what the damage is!

Tabby Face Block Lotto

The Tabby Face Block Lotto is another ray of sunshine. I’ve received quite a few messages and photos from you all sharing that you’ll have Tabby Faces in the mail this week. How can a slew of happy kitty faces not make me feel better?

And for everyone checking in to see how Tackett is doing, we have not really seen any change. He hasn’t lost weight, but he’s not gained any since the first couple of weeks of his treatment. He still seems chipper, though, so we remain hopeful.

Thanks for listening…see you for Talk To Me Tuesday! Tomorrow’s will be a little different since my computer is out of action…along with all my usual files!

To celebrate the Tabby Face Block Lotto, use coupon code TABBY in my Etsy shop to receive 10% off your total order during the month of September!

Trunk Show Tomorrow!

Getting Ready for My Trunk Show

Hoo, boy, I have been uncharacteristically quiet this week!

The reason for this is simple, my beloved friends, tomorrow is my very first Trunk Show and I have been busy getting ready.

Trunk Show featuring Jennifer Ofenstein
Honey Bee Quilt Store
10am – Noon, Saturday May 12, 2012
9308 Anderson Mill Rd #300
Austin, TX 78729

What’s a Trunk Show, you say? Well, it’s a bit like a one-woman show.

This is your chance to see many of my Sewhooked projects in fabric! There will be oodles of Sewhooked patterns for sale, some of which are making their quilt store debut!

There will be Quiltmaker 100 Blocks, Vol. 5 on hand to buy (and I’ll sign my block, if you like!) as well as some fun freebies and a drawing for a wall hanging made by yours truly! 

I really hope to see you there! If you’re a blog reader, please be sure to let me know. I love being able to put faces to names. 🙂

Tomorrow is the first day of the annual Bluebonnet Patchwork Trail Shop Hop and Honey Bee Quilt Store, where I both work as a part-time employee and teach quilting classes, will be participating.

I’m excited to share this this shop hop will be a fun one! Without spilling the beans too much, I will let you know that My Magical Lens, the Harry Potter quilt I completed in 2007 is on display! If you’ll be in or around the Austin area, please stop by and have a look at one of my all-time favorite creations, the quilt that started my journey in the online quilt community.

Harry Potter Quilt

My Magical Lens, 2007

I will be at Honey Bee all four days of the shop hop. Be sure and come by the store if you can. We’re having a lot of fun with this year’s theme and I think you’ll feel that when you get to the store! There are lots of great freebies as well as drawings for fantastic prizes at each store that participates.

Just a tip for first-timers! Bring a sheet of address labels for all the door prizes and raffle tickets you’re sure to need to fill out! It’ll save you writing your address over…and over…and over! You generally need your name, address, email & phone number so you can be tracked down in case you win!

Now, if I’m a little quiet the next few days, you’ll know just where to find me!



Tree Trimming Kit

Tree Trimming - Honey Bee Quilt Store Kit

I’m happy to share with you all that I will be participating in the Austin Area Quilt Guild’s 2011 Gift of Quilting! I will be representing Honey Bee Quilt Store and offering my Tree Trimming class as part of the program.

With the help of my friend Osie, who also works at Honey Bee, I put together this new color combination especially for The Gift of Quilting. As an added bonus, the kit is available not only to those participating in GoQ, but to anyone!

You can order online directly from Honey Bee or you can stop by the store to pick up your kit.

The $22 kit includes the Tree Trimming pattern, all the fabric to make the quilt top as well as the binding. All you need is batting and backing fabric!

As always, happy quilting!
