This is a small carry-on bag. I didn't want to have to buy another bag to get stuff home, so I got creative. There is something in every nook in cranny in this.
Yes, the sewing machine was in there too. And, no, Oscar was not but wishes he had been;)
I did my usual scouting for fun black and whites.
Mom found this one and wants a tote made out of it;)
Of course you know me and Halloween;) Too cute and way fun! I have plans for these and will show you as soon as I find the magazine again.
I love these! I found them at Quiltworks in Bend, Oregon. All I have to do is find a cream to go with it and I plan on making something like this....
The picture doesn't do it much justice, but it is a gorgeous quilt;)
I couldn't pass up this...had to pick up something beachy/ocean related along the coast;)
Just because it was fun....love the look on that fish;)
Have no idea what I will use it for, but I love those owls and the colorway here;)
Another "you know me" piece;)
Odds and ends that caught my eye along the way;)
Yes!!!! Finally found a shop that still had the whole line up of this series!!! I had originally planned on making one and giving it to the grandbaby, but I think this will be grandma's "storytime with the grandbaby quilt that goes home with grandma" quilt.
I LOVE these!!! I found that first print with the tent on it at Homestead Quilts, LaPine, Oregon. (You have to stop at that one!!) I gathered all the other prints from other shops I stopped in. I plan on making this one for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Not that I will get it done on time (it's May 26) for this year, but at least I have the fabrics to make it;)
A close up of some of the prints to go in the Camping quilt;) I love those mosquitos!!
I didn't want to spread this one all the way out, but it is a whole quilt top kit. I picked this one up at the Stitchen' Post in Sisters, Oregon.
I spotted these little goodies bags at Quiltz in Ashland, Oregon. That is a fun store with tons of goodies. Worth the stop. And the ladies working there were great. These bags exploded into this....
Too Fun!!! I was thinking pincushions or something else kitchen related. There is enough here to make a good sized wall hanging. Not sure, but something fun;)
And, last but not least.....I stuffed this into my carryon.....
My mom gave this one to me as a gift. She just bought herself a real cool one and has never used this one, so she asked if I wanted it. Of course;) It has a huge table to work on, and came with a walking foot. I am going to try it out asap;)
I have tons of new goodies to work with and bunches of ideas in the head.
And before I go, I just realized that this will be my 101st post here with blogger, so I am going to host a small giveaway in celebration of the occasion (any reason to celebrate is good!!). If you would like to be in the drawing here are the rules....
You have to be a followere already AND have left a comment in at least one of the last 20 posts I have made. I really want this giveaway to go to those of you that have been active followers of my blog, so I apologize in advance if anyone feels left out, but it's my giveaway to set the rules for;)
If you want to be in the drawing, just leave a comment in this post and I will draw a name next Sunday, May 22. Please make sure that you can be contacted so that I can send you the goodies if you get picked.
I am not sure what the goodies will be, but they will be fun;)
