The loot

Why don't we have half priced books (store) in new York? Shelly, her
mother and I, rumaged the quilting section for some fun finds! I took
home two books... Lots of old beauties with some quilts I have not
seen published before...

Picked up some sale yardage, some fabric for new pillowcases for my
bed, and some RED with pink for sashing my sunset blocks!!! Yipppee!!

We had such a nice time, the kids played their brains out, while we
just relaxed and chatted... No sewing at all! Can you believe it??

We head home tomorrow and since the snow is now gone.... It will be in
the sixties... So we get just a teeny taste of warm Texas!

The only thing left to do is, see the spot JFK was shot... B studied
him, and can tell you anything you want to know about him, so we can't
miss seeing THE very spot...

I picked up the antique quilts issue by Better Homes and gardens....
I'm all geared up to run home and make the cover brown and pink star
quilt.... Yeah, that one and about 20 others.... :-) vacations are
good for rebooting....
Happy sewing!!!

And thank you , Shelly and your family, for a great weekend!!!
See y'all soon!!

  2. V, It was a fabulous time! We got to eat mexican food, shop for fabric, laugh til we cried, and let the kids run wild. You just can't have more fun than that with your clothes on! You and B have a safe trip home and enjoy the rest of your spring break! (And say hello to M too!)Happy quilting my fabulous friend!!
