Last week, I mentioned that I had an opportunity to visit a couple of shops while at home. I finally unpacked some of my goodies and just had to share. I thoroughly fell in love with Janet at Janet's Quilting Bee. She truly demonstrates Southern Hospitality!!! I wanted to take her and her shop back to Georgia with me. We spoke briefly about hand quilting, which I have been wanting to learn. Well, that brief conversation led to my mother
scheming with consulting with Janet on tools needed for one to try out hand quilting. I left the store with everything needed to make a throw pillow. Included in the goodies was a hoop, lots of needles (some for my machine as well), thread, a really cool coin thimble, some templates for future projects, and, well, you get the point ;-) My mother is such a supporter of my quilting. I'm thinking she is very fortunate that my hobby is not restoring antique cars or some other ridiculously expensive hobby!! I am looking forward to having a project to work on during my upcoming travels.

While there, I saw this cute little fat quarter which may be the beginnings of a quilt for my frustration.
I picked up a couple of "happies" while visiting Block Therapy, another shop that I fell in love with and wanted to take back to Georgia. They had a wonderful collection of fabric. They had a section of fabric precut into one and two yards at a super price. I have no idea what I'll be doing with the fabric, but I just couldn't walk away empty handed!!
This weekend I celebrated my birthday and 23rd wedding anniversary (YAY me)! I entered several giveaways, thinking the RNG would, for once, be kind. No luck so far...still waiting to say, "Look at what I won!" But, needless to say, my cup runneth over with all the blessings in my life!!
Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog!
