We had a fabulous trip to Richmond this weekend. I had never been and it was really a nice city to explore. I wish we could have spent more time there, so I'm sure we'll be making a trip back. The craft fair was a lot of fun and very busy. It was such a nice space and I was surrounded by so many talented artisans & crafters. I even got to meet a very nice blog reader, whose name I did not catch, but thanks for stopping by & saying hi! I'm in the process of updating my shop now with leftovers from the show, so if you're interested, check it out.

Show on Sunday

Part of my absence this week is due to my preparations for my first craft fair of the year. I have been sewing like crazy the last few weeks and am finally coming up for air. The show is in Richmond, VA so if you're in the area, come stop by and say hi! I've never been to Richmond, so we're heading down early tomorrow to visit before the show on Sunday. If anyone has suggestions of "must see or do" let me know! Have a good weekend.

quilting bee blocks

Since I may be taking a big trip later in the month, I'm trying to stay ahead of all my bees & swaps. I finished up these two blocks for my two quilting bees. The first is for Colleen. She requested this pattern using men's shirt fabrics and kona cotton (I think in ash). I cannot wait to see this finished! The second block is for Jessica. She sent out two fabrics, very close in color and asked for a modern block, ala Drunk Love by Denyse Schmidt. I always think these blocks are fun to make.

***NOW CLOSED****Tomorrow is also the last day to sign of for the Vintage Sheet Swap if you're interested. We already have over 70 swappers, but there's still a little room if you were thinking about joining.
