Changes

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. 

   
It wasn’t that long ago that she was this tiny…

 

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.

This weeks goal is to finish sewing the last few stars for the Star Flower Quilt Along, to cut out my hexagons, and begin assembling the top. Can’t wait to see how things shape up with the quilt.
 
Till next time,
