She claims this is easier than it looks........
We broke for lunch and hit a couple of shops downtown. There is so much to do and see where she lives so we did a bit of exploring and stopped in some shops neither of us had visited before.
Next we hit the new Amish Market for lunch. YUM! I had to buy the chocolate covered bacon. Now before you think eeeeeuuuuuuuuwwwww! You need to keep an open mind and try it sometime. Just like the salt and sweet in chocolate covered pretzels but better because it has bacon.....and in our house, bacon rules anyway.
After lunch we headed back to her house to tackle a pattern we bought at a quilt show last year. The salesgirl made it look so simple. It is just a table runner with trees that alternate directions. We let me say, it sure put us in a couple of directions! My sister's colors below - she really has an eye for color combinations. (sorry - it's a phone pic)
This is what we are supposed to be making - sorry for the glare! Another phone pic
And last but not least - my stray from the path of the straight and narrow. This is "Jingle all the way" by Scarlett House. I am stitching it on 30 CT WDW Kudzu which is an awesome color in person. I just love the fabric. I really like when I get the chance to stitch on something other than navy bean or pearled barley or antique white. It is like coloring outside the lines.
"Jingle" is supposed to be on a straight line but I mixed it up a bit. All I need to do is add the snowflakes and stitch it up as a pillow!
