I Was a Good Girl!
Went to the closing of The Fabric Patch today. I was so good. Everyone should be really proud of me! I just picked up a few more spools of Aurifil thread at the good sale price, and a couple of packs of Hot Ribbon. A friend, Lady B, has designed a teacup BOM for her local quilt shop, and I'm wanting to start this applique project soon. She used this to embellish some of the cup and saucer rims and they were gorgeous.
The new owner of the FP was in there today. I picked up a flyer about what she's going to be doing to the shop. They currently own an embroidery business down in Orange County, and are going to be selling embroidery machines, etc. I don't think she's a dedicated quilter, so I'm thinking there won't be as much quilty stuff as we're used to seeing in there. Probably a good thing. My stash will definitely be my number one shopping place from now on.
I've been piecing the second block on my niece's quilt. It's a paper pieced block. I do real good on one or two, and then get all backwards on the next one. The frustration factor is high now. I'm going to plow through, though, on these as I really want to finish this quilt up within a couple of weeks.
