There is less than a week until school starts. I’ve been looking forward to this and dreading it at the same time. My baby girl is going to Kindergarten. She’s waited for this for 3 years. It’s finally (already???) here.
We’ve had our last camping trip of the season. We spent about 5 days at Lake Pearrygin in Eastern/Northern Washington. It is just beautiful up there. And of course, I checked to see if there were any yarn or quilting shops nearby. I found “The Quilting Hive”. I’m so glad I went. I found fabric I didn’t think I’d ever find… “Ruby” by Bonnie and Camille. They only had 5 bolts of different types but I bought a yard of each, and on a whim, bought a couple fat eighths that looked suspiciously like they belonged (and upon research were!!) to Ruby. I was ecstatic. The lady in the shop had no idea what I was going on about. 🙂
I also found some Valorie Wells “Nest” fabric that I couldn’t put back and some Tula Pink and a few other goodies. A fat quarter stack of “The Sweetest Thing” by Riley Blake may have landed on my hoard as well. And after hearing about Aurifil for months now, I found it in the flesh and bought a spool. I LOVE IT. It feels so durable.
On our way down to the states I picked up my package of Riley Blake’s “La Crème” collection of low volume dots. I’m in love. Really. Have I ever mentioned I love polka dots? These precious prints will be appearing in many, many quilts.
