OK, where do I begin? I haven't blogged in days, and you know I am bubbling over inside! Let's see..
First, off to Seattle For Thanksgiving... it snowed.... It was 55 in NY, and 30 in Seattle,
but that didn't stop the Rebels from inviting me in for a visit..
They had so much Fantastic Show and tell, my head is spinning....
This Quilt above was made by Sally, and I just love the quirky sashing fabric...
To me, if your going to sash, THIS is the way to go. Fabulous! love the scrappy houses!
LeeAnn, AKA: Nifty, also made a house quilt. And I flipped over the plaid sashing, as I have this same fabric from 10 years ago! she found hers in thrift shop curtains, and mine came from around the corner in one of my funky fabric places! (with ten year old stash!) I love the play on red in the plaid and chimneys...
Speaking of HOUSES! There's my HOUSE BLOCKS in Alexis of Quilts of Mimi Park! I.LOVE.THIS.QUILT. period. the contrast the girlie prints. what a charm! I also got to meet Megan, who pops up on our comment forms.. no blog. It's was a joy to meet these ladies... Gosh I was itching to sew!! Alexis brought me a cookbook! Maybe I will get my cookbook together this year after all!
Curry broccoli soup... yum!
Because she knows I love cookbooks ALMOST as much as I love my quilts...
And Megan brought me some VERY YUMMY JAM,
which we busted open and ate the next morning! oh so good!
I was a bit spoiled... LeeAnn gave me a whole bunch of goodies, foodies, snacks,
and Shirtings and some PINK fabric I was salivating over!
yes, I said pink. PINK!!!
It's as bright as Bazooka Bubble gum.
It makes your teeth hurt just looking at it. and I love it!
With my family we hit one thrift store, so I really cleaned up there... men's shirts, 50% off... HUGE score... Our granddaughter, picked out a load too, so I could make HER another quilt for Christmas...with her choices! Gotta get on that ASAP! I can't pass up a request like that!
And she would like you to meet Poppy.
Yes, Poppy is a RAT. and pretty darn Cute too!
And we helped bring these two boys home with her... a white/tan hooded rat, named Starbucks, and the gray one is a dumbo rat... See his BIG pink ears? They named him MAUS!
I know they seem gross, but they were sooo friendly,
and frankly cleaner then our guinea pig...
And this FABULOUS bag was waiting for me when I got home!
THANK YOU MARY! We did a swap that we planned last summer at my retreat...
I had a pattern I knew I'd never make, so we swapped!
I sent her this wall hanging below....
I love my bag!! Thanks Mary!
So glad we're friends! ( and near each other in MN!)
OK, well, that's it for now... I could load you up with more photos,
but I need to do my 15 minutes before I hit the hay.
I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
oh! and I nearly forgot, the winner of the HALF YARD of Anna griffin Sierra fabric is:
