Not one darn thing! I didn't touch my machine and didn't even make it into the studio. I stopped over at quilty Pam's house, had a glass of wine (or two) and didn't make it home until just after nine.
This morning I was up very early and started running as soon as my feet hit the ground. I had an oil change at 7:30, stopped over at my parent's to help my mom with a couple of things (she had knee surgery on Thursday), went to pick up mulch, zipped over to the dreaded Walmart and then headed home. When I arrived I sat down at the laptop just to see what I had missed this morning blog-wise. I read Nancy's post and she wrote that she was on her way to Burkholder's Fabric with some of her quilty friends. When I read that I knew where I had to go next. I mean - a chance to meet Nancy up close and personal? I had to do it!
When I got to Burkholder's I saw a car in the parking lot that I just had a feeling was Nancy's. In the store I wandered around thinking that I would recognize her as soon as I saw her. I didn't so I approached a group of women and asked if any of them was named "Nancy". The ladies told me they were with Nancy and took me to meet her. I felt like a groupie! I was so excited and Nancy was as gracious as I knew she would be. I met Honna, Judy No Blog and Helen No Blog (though she really does have one but it has nothing to do with quilting!) Everyone was just so sweet and I was delighted to meet all of them. Judy took a photo which may or may not appear on Nancy's blog in a few days. You could not have slapped the grin off my face!
So...while I was at Burkholder's I had to shop. 25% discount on everything that wasn't already on special or sale. Seriously, what would you have done?! I bought this to make dresses for my great-nieces. They have birthdays this month.
I am participating Karen's fabric swap so I picked up this beautiful red and white fabric
I saw this collection from PB Textiles and had to buy it. I know it will make a couple of really beautiful bags.
When I got back from fabric shopping I started moving the mulch from the back of the car to the garden using my new yard cart. I dumped out each of the bags and decided to wait until the sun goes around to the front of the house before I spread the mulch. The sun is so nice to see but it sure got warm in a big hurry!
Later this afternoon I will actually sit down at a sewing machine...or at least cut something out. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
