An addendum to my mom’s visit:
She’d been working on a quilt top for herself for some time and when she learned her son is into quilting what does she do? She brings the unfinished top 2,500 miles to show me:) It is pretty damn amazing! IIRC it is a pattern called “bears in the woods”.
We also visited another quilt shop close to my house – Rosie’s Calico Cupboard. It was literally overwhelming. SO. MANY. FABRICS. We wandered around in a color induced stupor for at least an hour.
I picked up some fun fabrics for myself (no idea what I’ll do with them yet) and some fabric for a quilt I’m going to do for my nephew.
Also while my mom was here i damn near cut my pinky off doing dishes. The doctor says I’m not allowed to do dishes anymore (the wife’s not buying it).
Tune in next week for another exciting quilting adventure!
