Yesterday was warm -- 80s. Today it is not -- 40s. How weird is that?
Last week was busy. Last Thursday we had a blast in Post Oak with the Busy Bee Quilters. They had asked me to demo some specialty rulers. I asked my quilting buddy, Priscilla, if she would come and demo some rulers as well. She has made so many amazing quilts and I knew she had great experience with rulers. I also invited two other Kraz-z Quilters to ride with us and join in on the fun. So Kathleen and Mickey joined Priscilla and I. I had such a good time. The Post Oak ladies had invited two other groups so there was a few extra ladies. I also demonstrated Worry Free Bias Binding. It was a beautiful spring day and we had a great time.
Then Friday, you know there is the necessary stuff--laundry, vacuuming, etc. Straightening etc. etc. I put a small quilt on the machine and finished it up Saturday. Sunday was a quiet day. Monday I machined the binding on the little quilt and started the hand part. Then Tuesday I was invited to go with some quilty friends to Dallas to the fabric warehouse district. Two of the ladies were looking for specialty fabrics for church vestments and banners. I was basically along for the fun. I had been warned it would be an all day trip. And it was. We left town at 8am and got home at 9pm. I heard several different languages spoken from shoppers. We oohed and aahed over sparkly fabrics--dance, bridal, etc. There was drapery and upholstery fabrics. And there was a nice surprise--buttons! One warehouse had rooms of buttons. What fun we had looking and going through them.
I had been warned to dress comfortably. So glad I chose my athletic shoes and not my sandals. My feet didn't hurt after all that walking.
We had to stop by Quilt Country quilt shop in Lewisville coming back. I love their bright store. It is well arranged and they have nice samples.
We were famished so we stopped at Golden Corral then a must stop by Sam's Club and after many laughs and non-stop talking we were back home. So fun. We all need days like that.
Yesterday, of course, was Kraz-z Quilters. We are working on Kathleen's Triple Irish Chain in pinks and brown. I got home and had an invite to come do a demo in a nearby town. I am grinning. I love it. Today? Errands, cooking, cleaning, and more quilting. ; )
Blessings and happy quilting,
