The week before National Quilting Day = Road Trip!!!

A road trip north to the Amish area of Ohio...

a great day of friendship and, yes, acquisition.
This was one of my constant companions for the day:
as I am still living with the end of the "crud"
aka sinus infection among other things.
Now, on to the acquisition part:
I found some great patriotics to add to my stash...
(OK, some are not patriotics - but great stash to have on hand!)
 Also found some great fall colors
for my upcoming block of the month...
 And, found some great border fabric -
maybe a "pic-i-nic" quilt in my future,
as Yogi would say?

Sometimes on these trips,
you even get to acquire fabric for others!!!
This is a line that a friend, Caroline, was looking for -
so called her and added to her stash!!!:
Isn't it cute? She is planning a bag for a knitting friend.
(And, truth be told, I bought just a little myself to make a bag for a s-i-l gift!)
And, lastly, just a little sustenance
for the long drive home!

  1. Oh please, can you tell me who made the line of fabric with the knitting sheep on it? I HAVE to find a piece for my dear friend who knits. :) Any help you can offer will be so deeply appreciated.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
