A Day Out
I know you all want to hear about the day's trip out. This year's gift bag was a fabulous metalic turquoise and I filled it as you can see. My goal was those extra wide backings so I can get some finishes.
Westering Women, the Black Bear, a string quilt made a couple of years ago with Let's Book It, and my Leap Year (circles) quilt. I'm a washer when it come to these backings, so that is today's agenda.
My Mom went with us and got a little wobbly - fabulous staff took grand care of her by getting a chair, getting bolts, cutting and cashing her out. While that went on, we managed a short browse (because it was elbow to elbow by then). I picked up two jelly rolls 'Sylvie' and 'Rhapsody in Blue' ($18 no less) and a few $1 FQs. Since we were early getting out of the shop and Mom was not up to anything else, we headed home - probably a good thing as it started to snow.
Home petting fabric while warming up with a hot herbal tea and then I crashed on the couch with my furkids who had a short miff because I dared to leave them alone for a bit - cats!
Washing fabrics and borders on that green quilt are my goal for the day. Oh, and some housework mixed in - yeah, someone has to do it.
Wind some bobbins and get sewing,
