This past week gets the Olympic Gold Medal for the fastest passing week on record!
I feel like I blinked and the week was over. First it was quilt retreat and we all know how fast that goes by.
Today is Design Wall Monday over at Judy's blog and I have been working on the UFO bag that I wrote about 2 weeks ago - click here. It is coming together really quickly because almost half of the blocks were already made and all the pieces were cut out. I sorted and pressed all the pieces and determined that there are 2 different blocks. These are the centres of the star blocks, and there will be 17 of these. I'm loving working on this project...other people's UFO's are way more interesting than your own!
After retreat my DH decided to take a quick trip to ski in Vermont. Okay, that's 1 day to drive there, 1 day to ski and 1 day to drive home. Doesn't make much sense to me, but I'm always up for an adventure. Can you guess what I did for 1 day in Vermont?!? I looked for a quilting store of course. I had checked briefly on the internet and only found 1 store near where we stayed, and it was closed on Saturday :(
But in driving around the area I was delighted to find a fabulous new store called the Waterwheel House Quilt Shop. This was my great luck to find this wonderful brand new store! You can tour the store on their blog - click here. They have tons of new fabrics that I haven't seen before...you know, the new fabrics that are in the current magazines! There is a lovely classroom and so many colourful samples to see. And they have a lovely dog named Gracie that I would've adopted on the spot - you can see a picture of her on this blogpost.
