Well I am home and so tired! My back was screaming at the end and my wallet was empty. Well, no, I left with about $27, so dinner can be on me tonight. Ha! We both agreed that it was a much larger show, but not a better show for the most part. A lot of booths were just...to put in bluntly...junk. Looked like they went around the shop and grabbed everything they had laying around and just flopped it all in a booth.
I don't ever feel the need to stop and check all of them, I can usually tell right away if there is anything I might like in the booth from far away and zoom right on past if there's nothing that interest me. We went in and I went searching for the CW lady. Luckily she was found a few rows from where we started and I immediately found a great shop that had all sorts of colored wool. Yes w-o-o-l!! At MY quilt show! It's unheard of before now. Got 8 FAT 1/16th's of a few colors I need for Sue Spargo's quilt and some I just thought were yummy.
It's sad to admit that you can't fit all your crap in one picture! I always say I can't imagine spending all that much and then I do. I had cash, which I thought the people were going to faint over, and when that ran out I knew I was done! LOL! Here's picture number one!
The coolest booth was Liberty Homestead. Beautiful hand dyed cottons and wonderful patterns. I got her 25th anniversary book with 54 patterns, 2 patterns, and quilt hanger (with the stars) 2 color FQ bundles and 5 total yds of different color backgrounds. Yum! Over on the left are 33 FQ's of CW reproductions that most of you have but I missed ages ago and I was able to find them at one of the booths...buy 10 get one free! I also found my Bohin needle pullers!! *s*
Picture number 2 shows my new quilting hoops that stand on their own! a size 10" and 14" they fit together but come back apart and now I can lay it on my lap and have nothing resting on my arm trying to balance. They are made from the same resin I like but really cool. The yummy wool pieces I got on the left, and then my biggest purchase!! These are the CW bundles that I specifically went to find. I bought 8 of them. Blues, browns, rusts, loads and loads of patterns I have never seen before and probably will never again! I loaded up with shirtings too. There's a bundle in the first picture!!
The lovely wools...
Close-ups of the FQ Civil war bundles...where is all this stuff going to go???
I don't have loads of pictures of the quilts...sorry. I actually looked at most of the quilts, I just forgot to take out the camera all that much. I'll share those in a second post. But I did want to add the 3 blocks I made yesterday afternoon to this post. I can't wait to open up some of those new bundles and get sewing!
LL - Enthusiasm
LL - Jersey Boys
D - Love Letter. An extra block I just loved..
More blocks to follow, and more projects finished in the upcoming days. I'm waiting for new packages from BOM's and such too.
