This week has flown by so fast I don't even remember what I did all week. Sometimes it seems like one day is the same the next. Well... I certainly must have done something interesting. Oh ya... how could I forget, I made a pink baby quilt using Yellow Brick road pattern, I'm going to back it with chenille and no batting. A friend had a baby girl on Mar 18 so this quilt is for her. I'd show you a picture but...I just got a new camera and haven't figured out "how to" download the pictures yet...arrrgg. I always rely on my "techie" husband and he was too busy this weekend working setting up is wood working shop.
On Friday three of us quilters went on a shopping trip to Burlington and Lynden Wash. We stopped at our favourite store that carries lots of wonderful reproduction prints "A Lady's Art". They also have a wonderful selection of hand dyed wool, Weeks Dye Works threads and Cross Stitch (all of my favourite things). I picked up a border print for my scrappy 4 patch quilt and a needlepunch pattern with a rabbit, cabbage and turnip for the design...so cute. On the way home we stopped at "Folktales" in Lynden. I found a really neat pattern from Swatches Pattern Co. it comes with fabric swatches (2" square) of the whole fabric line. Mine is Renewal by Brannock and Patek. I had seen this type of packaging before and thought it looked fun. We also found a really cute "stitchery" pattern with a series of 12 designs. We each bought 4 and will share them. It's too expense for each person to purchase all 12 designs each. I don't know how the pattern designers would expect that we wouldn't "share" with our friends. So that shopping trip took all day with a stop for lunch and another stop at Joanne's. Hopefully pictures coming soon.
