These are some of the shops that participated, unfortunately most of the stores won't let you take pictures inside. Sooooo many beautiful quilts and fabric. I got a new thimble at the first shop. (I tried to get a picture, but none of them came out very good) And bought some new fabrics to use in my first attempt at making my first modern quilt.
What did I do with him, you ask? I'll show you in a little bit :cD
Then to add to the happy of the weekend we had a great Sunday with the kids! We just hung around home for a little bit, watched a movie, and did some of our respective "me" time hobbies. I wanted to make a pin cushion, amongst other things, so I got ready for that. As I was doing so my daughter asked if she could make one too. So here she is working away on hers...too cute!
...and my pin cushion?
Both are now proudly displayed on my sewing cabnet :cD
Finally, we made a trip to Chuck E. Cheese for a little fun. I'm starting to wonder if my mousling may work in the broadcasting field. Here's my son the director...
And my daughter the camera operator...
I also got to work on my knitting, and I must say as a knitter teaching herself the hobby, I love YouTube. I found a video on how to do the slip slip knit stitch....and also that I was doing my knit stitch not quite right. Now that I am, I am getting those pretty little "v"s and I am incredibly excited. I also worked on my postage stamp quilt and am now up to 7 of 20 sections done. All in all it was a wonderful weekend.
Well, after a whole weekend of fun the house shows it, so I am off to get the things done that need to be done, but it is well worth the extra work today around home for such a great weekend. Also to catch up on some blog reading, and maybe squeeze in a bit more fun. Hope you all had a great weekend too, and a happy Monday. Warmest country wishes all!!
