Spring means Spring Quilt Market

Judy and I are off to Minneapolis for Spring Quilt Market this week. We are hoping to bring back fresh ideas and new techniques to share.

The Bop Around The Bay shop hop was a success. One of the charity quilts has been put together it just needs some quilting and a nice porch seat to cuddle up on. Shop hops are a fun way to join your quilting buddies and see all the areas great quilt shops. Join us in August for the Amazing Quilt Race.

Our knitting neighbor, Inish Knits, is doing some remolding. So we thought hey! let's do some remolding ourselves. Judy has decided to put the sewing center in the back room. We are having new sewing tables made and a new ironing station. This will open up space in the front for the large cutting table. As most of you know I live to move things around So Yippee Skippee!

Well I am off to finish packing for Quilt Market. I love to travel and traveling for the quilt shop is even more fun!

May Day has come and gone

We started this month out with pleasant weather but goodness, it is quite cold out there (especially if you are like me and don't wear a coat). That is the bonus of living down the alley from the quilt shop. I never have to warm up the car, scrape windows and I only have a 2 minute commute.

Enough about the weather let's discuss what I got in the mail on Monday.

My husband said and I quote " Another sewing machine?". I reply that it is a Hello Kitty Machine. He will never understand. My friend Diane found this Janome on the internet and decided to buy it. I admired (envied) it and ordered my own. Now we are ready for any quilting road trip. Our next project is to make a travel bag for our Hello Kitty's.

Now if I could just focus and do some sewing....ahhhh that would be great!
