We're back home after a wonderful vacation in sunny Florida. We came home Sunday night, and I already miss the heat and the sunshine. We actually had to get a fire going in the fireplace on Sunday night! Talk about a BIG difference in temperatures!!! Anyhow- it's back to work for hubby and me, and the kids go back to school on Monday, so they still have a few days to relax and play with their friends.I promised I'd show you the quilty stuff I bought while on vacation, so here we go: first I want to show you the wonderful gift Marie gave me when we met: A very cute kit for a butterfly quilt, some wonderful fabrics, and a great magazine! Marie is such a sweet friend, and I was very happy to meet her. She took me to the most amazing quilt shop in Rockledge called "The Quilt Place" It was just wonderful- they even had three long arm machines set up in the shop. The second time I went there they had them all running- too cool!
And I had to get a few patterns. The boys picked out the dragon patterns- they both want to have "Japanese" rooms with dragons and swords now....
And here's the fabrics- again, the bottom row is fabrics the boys picked out for their rooms (Oh, except the Halloween panel- that's mine.)
Last but not least I got two kits for pillowcases for Kristine (bought those at Queen Anne's Lace). Her room is all "Surfer girl" stuff, so I thought palmtrees and seashells would be appropriate. Now I started one this morning, but the instructions were not very good (or else I am just stupid) so I think I need to rip it apart and start over again without reading the instructions. How hard could it be??
I truly appreciate all your sweet comments- now that I'm back home I'm able to respond to you as well.
