I'm in Michigan - No other place has the power to refresh me like this does. Apparently, now that kids are going back to school this week, summer has arrived. Sunny, hot & humid with a few thunderstorms popping up every couple of days. I could do without the humidity but otherwise, I'm good!
I hit the AQS show yesterday and will share thoughts on that next week. My postings for the rest of this week will be rather sporadic - lots of miles to cover, friends to see & things to do. But I will tease you all a bit with a some of my shopping finds.
Thread - Yes, YLI was a the show. I went with the 1200 yd. 30 wt. spools - good all around thread for piecing and machine quilting.
It's hard to see but these are all lightly variegated threads. Show special - 8 spools for $40. They also have a great 40 wt. machine quilting thread and amazing hand quilting thread. I could have spent a lot more time & money in their booth.
Meanwhile, back at the house, I have pulled out some fabric. It's all about the reds, oranges and pinks. As usual, I have commandeered the dining room table for my work area. Good thing no one else is here.
Oh - news flash! The Michigan house has moved in to the 21st century - the wireless connection is up and running. This makes things so much easier - like posting to my blog. I even have a new traveling mouse pad - picked up two of them for $1 each.
And finally, one of my other quilt show purchases yesterday.
This girl will be appropriately decked out for birthday celebrations this weekend...tiara and all!
See you in a day or two ... or three *wink*
