Ummm...I had a little fun this weekend! We took our daughter up to our Diocesan Spring Youth Event in Lebanon, NJ. On the way home on Sunday, after picking her up, we stopped at my favorite quilt shop. I only did a little damage...not nearly as much as last time! The two large pieces were on the clearance shelf...how can you pass up neutrals when they're on clearance? Apparently I can't!
The others are repros for a pattern I picked up awhile ago...or for two, actually! One is Amadeus
and the other is Rose Pistola, both by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company.
My daughter picked up the pattern for the sheep from Rumpled Quiltskins. She picked the cow fabric to make the body, the hot pink Moda below for the ruffles and a teal green for the inside of the ears and the foot pads. This will be one interesting sheep!
Other than that it's been quiet here. My DH is off to New England for the week. He called me from the ferry that runs from Orient Point, Long Island, NY to somewhere in CT. It's a gorgeous day and he was sitting on the top deck of the ferry while he crossed. I wish I was there with him!
Tonight I'll be watching American Idol while I sew...I've gotten so much done during that show this season! My kids have been wandering into my sewing room to watch with me...it's been nice! I still can't believe Chris got voted off the show...I was heartbroken. This has been about the only show I watch on a regular basis, aside from House. I'll have to tape tonight's finale of that...will be out picking up my daughter from work when it ends.
