Free motion Fun and Sunshine

Just a little peek at what I have on my machine. I’ve been trying some ideas that I’ve had since reading a great book during my holidays.

I’ve really been loving brighter more cheerful colours lately and this little beauty fit right into that.

We really have had a sunny and hot summer a lot more humid than we are used to but I hate to complain, it won’t last much longer.

oh one more thing..oh how I love these boys! We had a very quick but wonderful visit with Sarah, Jerry and Jerry’s other Grandma. The cousins were pretty happy to have more time together.

Hastings Minnesota

A couple of years ago we decided that when we visited Minneapolis, we would stay the the smaller towns in the outlying areas. I am so not a big city girl. When we discovered Hastings I fell in love! This visit we stayed in Cottage Grove (I just love the name!) and visited Hastings.

I found some treasures at a shop there but only indulged in one small piece of Pyrex. The one I bought is no in this picture but I will share later. I bought the small friendship casserole with the printed lid!

How cute is this table and chair set, thankfully I already have one very similar.

I had a dream

Yesterday I received an email from WestJet a Canadian Airline with an offer that I could fly from here to Hawaii for 300. if I bought the ticket within the next 48 hours. Well I’m not going.

Though I guess my subconscious thought I should and I dreamt last night that I was there, oh there were so many people there. What was I doing though? Collecting Fat Quarters that’s what! Towards the end of the dream I decided to go swimming and ended up floating down a river and dreaming in my dream about more fabric, suddenly it occurred to me that I’d have to find a way to bring my enormous pile of fat quarters home and I woke up.

Now that I’m awake and ready to start the day, it’s time to load a quilt on the longarm and get  quilting and continue on with the fun I’m having with Lucy’s Crab Shack…
