Sewing? What is that?

I had a non-sewing week.  I did baste a few hexies to add to a flower, but it hardly counts…

So what did I do?  DH is working at my sister’s cabin, so I went and visited him a couple of days.  Our abode…

And I checked out the state of the ice on the lake …

And the weight of this fellow’s gold…  He said this is worth $4000…

But amongst all that excitement I did acquire some wonderful quilting items.  A short while ago I was conversing with Maria from Life on the Block.  She had shown a mini quilt she was making for her frame.  I commented that I recently bought a frame and need to make some quilts for it, and she offered to make one for me.  LUCKY ME!!  Look at this fabulous mini she sent!  She put a koala on it as a reminder of my Australia trip.  Maria, thank you so much!

DD # 2 flew to Vancouver for the weekend and found a quilt store in the big city.  I’ve never found one in Vancouver before.  She brought me home this scrumptious fat quarter bundle.  You know I LOVE colour!  I have to help her make curtains as payback.

And I bought a new spool of thread this week.  I have been sewing lots of purple hexies lately and used up all my ends of purple threads.  This one is a pretty colour.

And I’m linking this post up to Alsha's Space where the word for this week in the 52 week word photo challenge is “thread”.  Smile

  3. Your camp-out looks a bit more fun than with a handful of little boys. The mini is so charming and I'm sure that fine fabric will be put to good use..
