The "detours" did not prevent me from getting to the junction and buying exactly what I "needed", including two quilt backs from the discount table. Isn't that great key fabric?!?
This happened again today at the quilt store. I met Pat who is an employee at the Quilt Junction and she reads my blog. She started talking to me about the use of scraps in a vortex quilt. It took me a few minutes to adjust and realize that Pat reads my blog, and she knows what I'm sewing, even though I don't know her.
And then Pat told me about her sister Heather who lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick who just bought a 120 year old treadle, which she named "Beatrice". She said that Heather reads my blog too, so I am giving a shout out to Heather... are you reading today Heather? I'm so excited for you to find a real treasure in that treadle and hope you enjoy it! And thanks for reading my blog! What a small world!
This weekend I will be at the Fergus Scottish Festival. It's so much fun and I try to attend every year. You can read my blog posts from 2012 and 2014 to see what goes on. This year I'll be in the heritage tent showing how to make rag rugs. Drop by and say hello... even if I don't know you, you'll know me :)
