I WON! I WON! You just don't understand how exciting that is. I rarely win anything. I'm not un-lucky...I have lame prize luck. On the rare occasion that I do win, it's usually the ugly centerpiece door-prize that no one wants. But this time, I hit the jackpot! Kellie has very generously given some incentive prizes for the Joseph's Coat Quilt-along. Mine arrived Monday. Yipeeee!
This past weekend, the weather was gorgeous here, and the hubby was itchin' to ride the motorcyle. I was able to talk him into riding on Saturday, rather than Sunday...because the quilt shop that's an hour-or-so North of here, up that winding road he likes to drive, is closed on Sunday. He dropped me off at Stitch n Snip in Crouch and headed to the Longhorn Saloon for a cold drink. I was well behaved and bought 1/8th yard pieces of these fantastic batiks. Of course, I ran into someone there that I know, so I had to stay and quilt gossip with Gretchen. And it turns out that the shop is part of a 10 day, Idaho/Oregon Shop Hop. Seriously? A quilt shop hop is like inviting an alcoholic on a pub crawl. I will NOT be trying to hit the other 15 by Saturday. I will, however, keep the maps and addresses in the saddle bag, and I got this cute card holder kit (which I sewed up the moment I got home).
