Where the hubby and I have been for the past few days:
The place calls itself Pine Lake Resort, but I think they're stretching a little. But it was inexpensive, on Pine Lake and close enough that I could run home to feed the furry beasties instead of paying someone to stay here.
It's not a very big lake and the hubby didn't catch much of anything, but the weather didn't exactly cooperate. (Windy the first few days, then cold.)
We were about 12 miles from my favoritest local-ish quilt shop, so we went down and got lunchat a super cool 50's-ish diner called Kate's Diner that had cheeseburgers for $4! The philly steak sandwich with fries (house special) was $4.19!
On to Quilts at the Marshall House:
I didn't buy much (it was hard, but I restrained myself), but these three screamed at me. I bought a yard of that black with grey flowers because it's so unique and I love it. The other two are fat quarters.
I also bought some "Thimble-It" stickies because you all know I've got about 6 quilts needing binding sewn down! They're awesome!
So while the hubby played video games (you all knew THAT wasn't going to get left behind, right?) or tried his hand at fishing, I worked on bindings. I'll get photos soon.
And though it's a few days late, here's the book stack for September.
I can't seem to get the photos to be shorter (I think that's Blogger's doing), but it's getting shorter!
And one tutorial/link I just found today that I think is awesome and I'm going to try: Blogger Andrea at "Millions of Thoughts" posted about a year ago how she free motion quilts...she turns her machine sideways! So simple, yet I never would have thought of it. Now I think I'm more ambitious to do those circles. (I did buy a compass, but I was planning to free motion them and I think this technique is just the confidence boost I needed!)
Alright, I think that's enough randomness for now. Back to binding quilts!
