So the last couple weeks of my life, I have been a little mole voraciously gobbling up books. I love reading! I get into a book and I simply cannot put it down. For those of you who don’t read as much, it’s like getting into the middle of a movie and not being able to stop watching until the end. I so appreciate people that can take me to different places through their writing!
I had a fabulously long Easter weekend at home with all the family. It was so good to get out of town and have a change of pace. I also was able to squeeze in a couple of my favorite quilt shops. I did a little damage in the fabric department which was way too much fun! Here’s some of my findings.
This is an older line from Joel Dewberry called “Aviary.” There is just something about the bird and the splashes of orange that I like. I got it at a shop in downtown Hudson WI called “St. Croix County Dry Goods.” Wonderful antiques and a great mix of fabrics at this shop. You can make a day trip of it and visit all the fun shops downtown and the gorgeous St. Croix River.
I also found this fabric that I am going to make a skirt out of.
The rest of the fabric I picked up at another one of my favorite shops called “Quilted Treasures” in Rogers MN.
Again, the orange…something about it. Someday I might regret it, but for now I love it!
Fabric from Anna Maria Horner’s new line called “Good Folks.”
More Anna Maria Horner.
Boy! You really went nuts! Can’t wait to see what comes of it all!!!!
YEAH St. Croix Dry Goods! I was just there and got some great fabric to make stuffed easter eggs for Isabelle. I could spend DAYS in that wonderful shop!
Good to see you this weekend! I LOVE the Hudson shop too!! I have only been there one time (with Mary and Alaina), but it’s so cute! AND I found an awesome sideboard at an Antique store down the street, good times! love all your fabrics:)
I have been way into Anna Maria Horner’s fabrics! Also, I have never been in the ” Dry Goods” store. I think I need to very soon! I can’t wait to see what you make out of all that beautiful fabric as well!
