MINI SHOP HOP 2011
Hosted by the current Johnson County Quilter's Guild President and my friend JoAnn P., the annual Mini Shop Hop on Wednesday was a big success. JoAnn made each of us shop hoppers a darling bead-tipped wooden stiletto. Thanks JoAnn for the darling gift and the great time we had.
It should be no surprise to anyone that fabric was purchased. I was looking for stripes, interesting blues and reds, and squiggly designs. I also bought a cute tote pattern that had lots and lots of pockets, inside and out. That meets my major criteria for handbag design – loads of pockets to help keep me organized.
Then when I got home from the shop hop, I had a couple of packages in the mail box containing more squiggly designs fabric, including some more blues,
and the coolest moon and stars fabrics.
The moon and stars are my absolute favorite design, basically my personal theme fabric I guess. Just call me the “Celestial Quilting Bear Gal.”
I’ll be using some of my new fabric to make a needle case for an exchange on the Small Quilt Talk Yahoo Group. My Washington state swap partner and I have similar tastes in colors so the swap host paired us up. I plan to work on this project the first week in May if all else falls in line. I have the pattern all picked out and ready to go.
Sew much fabric, sew little time! I’ve got to find places to put all this new stuff where I can find it later.
