Here are most of the goodies that I brought home. Some of them were things handed out at Schoolhouse classes, and most of the fabric I bought at Sample Spree. I really wanted a bundle of Miniature Gatherings - the new line by Lisa Bongean, and I was lucky enough to get that and also purchased her 2 new rulers. I added a nice bundle of Kansas Troubles fabric to my purchases - and I have a plan for those that I will tell you about at a later date! See that bundle on the right...the fabric by Lynette Anderson? I won that at her Schoolhouse class! Lynette has been a customer of mine for a few years now, but we had never met in person. I didn't want to bother her before class, and had intended to introduce myself afterwards. But...she drew MY name for the giveaway! It was really funny, because she had no idea that I was in the room. When she drew my card, she started laughing, then introduced me to the room. I had the opportunity to speak to Lynette and her husband, Vince, several times while I was at Market - they are the nicest people. So glad to finally be able to meet them in person! I bought the bee pattern - it is so cute. It's by Wooden Spool Designs, and I can't wait to work on it.
I couldn't wait to cut into those Miniature Gatherings fabrics, and evidently Ozzie couldn't wait to share his fur with them! I wasn't even done cutting, and he was already laying on them!
And now I have to get back to work - we are getting ready for the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival - can't believe it's only a few weeks away - EEK!!!!!
Have a great holiday weekend!!
