On Mothers Day Stu roused the boys at about 0500 and they went fishing. Both little guys caught a fish and tossed it back in the lake. They were so excited about their little dawn fishing trip.
When I get some free sewing time I am going to make this quilt. It is from Anna Maria Horner's new book "Handmade Beginnings" I tried so very hard to figure out this pattern before getting the book, but now I see how totally awesome it is and I can't wait to make one. Nope, I don't have a baby in mind to make it for, I just want to make one!
Yesterday Jennifer, Deb and I made a trip to Lawrence, KS so we could visit the most awesome fabric shop ever Sarah's fabric. This is truly a shop you NEED to see in real life. Her web site needs some love, but her shop is out of this world. I think I spent an hour of my morning down on my hands and knees re-discovering Ginger Bliss (One of Any Butler's very first fabric lines) and I found a bolt of Yoshiko Jinzenji, well 3 bolts actually but this was the one print I really wanted about 2 years ago. I only got a tad so I could leave some behind for some other lucky soul. I also got the perfect fabric to finish my teacher bags before the end of the school year. I wish I had the time to make the hand print quilt for the teachers here, but there are too many awesome teachers and I just am strapped for time. Bags will have to do the trick!
So here we are on Thursday night when it was still warm. I am yapping away about something...I hope you all had a great mother's day and I wish you a wonderful week of lovely sewing and crafting!
****I am going to speak at the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild on Thursday night! I am so excited to be their guest speaker! Wish me luck....I hope I don't forget what to talk about. I am going to bring a couple treats too.
