So let's have a catch up on what I have been up to! My daughter gave me this adorable squirrel sweater. My family has this crazy obsession with squirrels. It is what all the best dressed teddy bears will be wearing this season!
Overall it is 48 inches long.
Another $4 find! This is about 11 x 18. Couldn't find this when I was looking. Back then, all I saw were tons of January and no July (birth month)
And a $1 find. This chicken wire shoe. The bow and flowers will come out and I am not sure what I am going to do with it but it was another too good of a bargain to pass up.
Today I managed to make my monthly guild meeting.....I have missed the last three months and even though it was just stitch in it was so good to go and see everyone. I've been doing a lot with my non-profit board so little stitching has been going on. It's minimal but here's my progress on my class piece.
I am going to have to frog a teeny tiny bit. I put in two too many stitches in the center of the heart below the flag. Not a terrible amount of frogging. I think I will survive.
After my guild meeting I picked up my BFF and we went to a local guild's quilting show. Of course, I needed nothing but got this R-W-B fabric for a table runner pattern my sister gave me. The show was not as nice as the bigger shows but I think it is important to support the local guilds. Beside some of the bigger national shows can be overwhelming.
I got this fabric last weekend in Lancaster PA with my daughter. I am so drawn to 1930's retro fabrics. I think I finally have more than enough to complete the string quilt I started.
I ended my jammed packed day with the afternoon and evening at the Havre de Grace Seafood Festival. Yummo! Seafood sampler platter, corn on the cob, crabs, cold beer, live bands, craft vendors.....it was a fun afternoon and evening for Deb and I.
I got some great shots of the lighthouse, the park and the water on my phone.
We strolled the promenade along the river. I love exploring new towns and cities and finding their hidden gems. Things the locals probably take for granted.
Check this out. I bought this fab messenger bag.
Look when you flip up the front flap!! Double wow. It is made from real jeans. The pockets will hold my favorite pen and cell phone and my keys are on the belt loop. Inside it is super roomy. There is room for my pocketbook, my lunch and a place for files but it will house a zipper mesh bag with a stitching project for me. Perfect for work.
I am off to rearrange everything from my old tote bag to my new messenger bag.
