Now back to vacation news. One of my favorite things to do when we are in Twisp, besides fly fishing that is, is to visit the Quilting Hive. It's a fantastic little quilt shop in the Methow valley and I always find things I must have when I visit. So here is what I came home with:
|Loved this fabric and thought it would make fun pillow cases.|
|A couple of new patterns|
|A quilt kit - I loved this pattern and I LOVED the fabric choices and |
since she only had the fabric in kits left, I had to have the kit.
|The fabrics in the kit|
|The panel that is the center of the quilt pattern/kit|
When we got home and unpacked and I got things settled out and most of the laundry done I went out shopping to find some 3mm peach colored foam for our fishing guide. He makes a lot of his own flies and he makes this peach colored hopper pattern dry fly that the trout love. While looking for it I found this book that I had to have and since I had a 50% off coupon at Joann's, well I came home with it.
I love patriotic quilts. I guess I'm pretty patriotic, so it stands to reason I would love these types of quilts. Oh and I did find the foam for Rod, so we'll be sending that up to him soon.
Today is warm, but grey and the wind is blowing. I still faintly smell fall in the air. Speaking of fall I found a cute yard decoration for fall at Joann's and I'm thinking I better get back there and pick it up before they don't have anymore. Fall makes me think of fresh apples - oh I can't wait to bite into a fresh picked apple.
So tell me do you do a bit of fall decorating??
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
