Simply Sophisticated BOM monthly drawing is this evening. Post your finishes HERE!
Stash report -- what a joke! Same song, third verse. Nothing in, nothing out. I do still have some things to be mailed out, but I haven't calculated yardage yet. Will do that later today or next week.
I'll for sure need to do that by next Sunday - to hopefully nullify the bolt I ordered from Kimberly of aged muslin. This stuff is wonderful. If you haven't checked it out yet, do it now - before I buy it all! LOL
Long Beach quilt show was yesterday. Oh, my, the Convention Center is humongous and chocked full of quilt vendors. I was SO good! Everyone would be proud of me!
I picked up a few patterns that Kimberly didn't have, a book, a couple of Marti Michell templates and rulers, YLI silk thread, found a source for wool floss, and also bought a few antique spindles and bobbins to add to my (dust catching) collection. Oh, and some dishtowels for embroidery. What? No fabric? Nope, none! Not an inch of fabric! Call the paramedics. I must be really sick! :)
The best part of the day was meeting Julie! What an absolutely delightful young lady! She is SO full of energy! Julie has been quilting seven or eight years already! She was wearing the cutest Moda Bake Shop skirt that she made. Jane and I only spent about 30 minutes with her, but we both came away thinking what a remarkable person she is. I see bright years ahead for Julie in quilting!
I have a major project looming on the homefront. I need to lasso all this fabric up and put it away. So I plan on doing some rearranging, some tubbing and boxing up, some purging of quilty stuff ... if you're a quilter, you probably know what I'm talking about. Some of it has to do with the fact that my tastes have changed a little - I'm a bit more focused now (don't laugh)- and a lot of it has to do with the fact that I don't want to live in a quilt shop any more. I want my house back! So we'll see how much I get accomplished over the next couple of months, but I'm going to at least give it the old college try.
Penny is guarding her toys carefully in case I decide HER tastes have changed, too!
