As I promised, here are some of the wonderful finds from my Friday shopping trip to the big city!
First up I found this awesome Creative Grids 2&1/2 inch Ruler:
Then I found this really cute pattern for a 46 inch square table topper:
I just knew I had the perfect fabric at home to make this from my stash:
Remember that table runner I made a week or so ago, the one that took 6 fat quarters. Well I picked out some lovely fabric to make my Aunt Shirley one to take back when I visit in October:
Then I got some Minnick and Simpson Grant Park fabric to make an "X Marks the Spot" quilt for my Aunt Jean as a quilt of valor for her. She and her late husband were retired Marines. One of the things we will be doing when I visit the Aunties in October is to take my Uncles ashes to Arlington National Cemetery. I felt a quilt of valor for her was in order to honor her and his memory. Here is the fabric and a picture of the pattern I'll use:
Then while at one of my favorite quilt shops in that area - Holly Hill, I found the cutest quilt kit and pattern that I just had to have:
And last, but not least, I have a couple more of my doggy block embroideries done:
I'm looking forward to getting my surgery date for my knee and then I can start planning and cleaning so all is in order. However at the moment my knee is hurting so much that I'm going to take it easy for a couple of days. I would like to do more, but my darn knee will not cooperate.
CR has been busy doing a couple repairs to the kitchen ceiling from when we had new lights installed and now that it's done (it involved sanding), I really need to do a good cleaning. I've also noticed that all of a sudden I have cob webs hanging around. It's like all of a sudden they showed up - what gives, they drive me crazy!!
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
