Something while we were out...

Hubby and I went out for day; I was able to stop by Archiver's while we were out running around.  Here's what I got:

I'm going to sent some of the paper selection to my Oregon peep; oh and some of the keys, too.  And don't worry Hubby got to stop by Cabela's... :-)

“To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.” (Brandi Snyder)

6 years ago....I said, "I do" to my world.

Happy Anniversary! I love you, babe.

I'm here...

I'm here...just busy with life.  No time for fun, lately...although today I was able to get together with the girls, but I don't have anything to show.  However, we did cut several squares for the BowTie quilt. Since we are doing the quilt as a group, each of us will need one set...and there's four of us. 

1.25" squares = 32 x 4 kits = 128

2.0" squares = 66 x 4 kits = 264

3.5" squares = 34 x 4 kits = 136

Any we aren't done cutting, yet.  I'm not sure what we were thinking when it was decided to cut 1.25" squares. Y-I-K-E-S!!

Anyho, I hope to have something more to show in the next couple of days.  So until then...

Here's a Cute Yellow Card...

Progress Report...

Here's my progress on the Small Steps quilt pattern which can be found in American Patchwork & Quilting (December 2010).
The strips are 1 inch...yes, that's what I said...1 inch.  The verdict is still out on whether I'm crazy for wanting to sew this quilt.  Within the next few days, I'm going to sew one block to see how painful this quilt might be.  I'll get back to you when I do...

Yesterday was soooo much fun...

Yesterday was sooo much fun;  I had a blast!  We visited 4 quilt shops: Blue Bamboo (Plymouth), Four Seasons (Maple Grove), SR Harris Fabric Outlet (Brooklyn Park) and Millie P's (Anoka)
Each store had a lot of beautiful quilt displayed; there was so much inspiration! I know that I've created more work for myself with these purchases, but I love my hobbies!
Anyho, here's what I got:  

Max & Whiskers Charm Pack (Basic Grey)

Cool Lizard Fabric (Timeless Treasures)
