Traveling Companions

Yesterday Becky, Brenda and I went traveling to some quilt shops south of Atlanta. What fun and I learned some interesting information about Brenda! We laughed so much and did pretty good about supporting the economy, but not adding too much to the stash. We went to Scarlet Threads which none of us have been to,000 bolts of fabrics. They were so nice there. I saw a quilt they were going to hang and they didn't kit up yet....well they let me take a picture and told me how much I needed of everything...then let me measure the strips. It is a simple quilt that doesn't scream Christmas...and simple is good for me.

I have been working on my Bad Melisa embroidery quilt kit. Slow going but I am fine with that and am enjoying the process.

Well the governor has furloughed us for 2 days during pre-planning. Not sure how I feel about this yet. Understand why, but....

Well off to read my last book for one of my graduate classes of the summer. One class is all set...everything handed in....evaluation done...tell I am happy?!


  1. So what else did you get on your shopping spree????? I am sure there is more;) Welcome to the ranks of the furloughed...I was very sorry to hear that teachers are furloughed too as y'all don't get paid enough for what you do anyway!

  2. Sounds like a most excellent adventure! Congrats on finishing the Grad school stuff and yes I know you are so happy.

    PS what was the name of that pencil you were using for the embroidery?

  3. Had a great time, it was wonderful to see you.
