Tuesday Report

After my production last week I have been taking the time to work on tidy-ing the sewing room. There are a number of folks who have been inspirational (or dare I say - shaming me) to improving the room. Check out this gal's room. Pretty amazing, no? It is just so georgous! I'm not there yet, so no photos.

Yesterday was a fun visit to Half-Price Books. I always love to go and visit their quilt books section. Found this one:
A few years ago I went to Houston and took a class from Becky Goldsmith (Piece O' Cake). Some delightfully whimsical appliques.

Today I received my quarterly Fabric Club from Minewood Quilting. Four times a year I get a selection of 6 fat quarters of "Basics" fabrics, from Denmark. They are always such very nice blenders. Here's what came today,

Agnes Mijnhout lives in the Netherlands but ships worldwide.

I made myself a couple of wine bags. These are so simple - you should have some. They only require 2 fat quarters. We had taken a bottle of wine to friends for dinner on Sunday night and she sent an email Monday saying that we had forgotten to get our wine bottle holder. Silly girl! It was for her.
Last bit of news - tomorrow the Western Washiington Shop Hop begins. Two friends and I are going to visit just 2 quilt shops - ones that are a bit of drive, which we don't visit with any regularity. More to report later in the week.
