Favorites of the Week

It goes without saying that my favorite part of the week was our little trip to Duluth.
One of the local quilt shops is closing, which is not a favorite part. The owner wants to retire and since she’s just had her 70th birthday its understandable. Its sad as this is the shop I have been visiting most of my quilting career and I have many memories of shopping with my little ones there (well they aren’t so little anymore) When I walked into the shop this week there sat a sewing machine that I’ve always loved and thought it would look sweet at my house…..well there it sat with a price tag of $30. so I have officially started celebrating my birthday month with my first gift to myself.

I managed to quilt a customer quilt this week, I still have to bind it.

I’m still planning to stay pet free, but I do enjoy his visits.

  1. A sweet sewing machine, absolutely a “two year old” kitten and sad to see a long time quilt shop owner close her doors. Any chance of a reopening?
