What a Nice Day!
I went out to Jane's house at 9:00 this morning, and we took off on a road trip. She drove and had it all mapped out. We didn't get lost one single time. A lot different than when I'm driving!
First stop was Temecula Quilt Co. Such a neat store. I picked up four books, two patterns, and Jane and I split a cut of poison green. Oh, and a charm pack. I always forgot those!
Second stop was The Country Loft. That store is packed full of all the things we like. I purchased a couple of patterns, the red wooden star, the Moda dish towels, the hot pad, and the wooden thing with the letter "V" on it. I never can find anything with my initial! Jane's husband said that was in case I forget who I am! LOL. Oh, I also got two yards of a blue/tan stripe that's not shown here; I want to make a window topper for the slider in my breakfast room.
And we were too close not to go by Rosie's. Oh, my, I was overwhelmed all over again when I walked into that store. So overwhelmed, in fact, that I only got patterns and maybe four FQs of Civil War browns/blues for a future project.
I think I'm sick. I mean, three quilt shops and hardly any fabric! I MUST be cured!!
It was such a beautiful day. There's snow again on our mountain peaks after the 100+ weather last weekend. It's insane!
Then Jane's sweet DH took us to our favorite local place for dinner. It was such a fun fun fun day! Thank you, Jane!
NOTE: The two patterns Beatrice from France asked about are both by Linda Brannock & Rita Briner. Gourds and More, and Bluebird Quilt.
