Last Friday Fun

Last friday I had to make a trip to Medina for an oil change in my Honda. Lucky for me the local quilt shop Fabric Obsession was just up the road. It is new about 3 months old. Let me just say one word....AWESOME. I loved their fabric choices and kits, and projects. They were oh so friendly but not overly friendly if you know what I mean. I was browsing and noticed several pincushions laying in displays. I asked if the gal who made them used sand for the filler. I normally use polyfil. She said 'Lizard Litter'. I had no idea what lizard liter was. She explained that it is crushed walnut shells and it is a bit bigger than sand but weighs about right. So the minute I left the shop I stopped at the local pet shop and bought their version of 'lizard litter'. I took a picture for sake of showing what it might look like at your local pet store. Here are a very other goodies I bought. Vintage Holiday jelly roll by Moda.
Peas and Carrots charm pack ......
They have a cool BOM with Thangles that is kinda like the buck a block but they don't have's anytime $3 a block. Very cool. I love the santuary fabrics.
And lastly I bought this purse book by Cindy Taylor Oates and some beautiful Moda Urban Chicks fabric to make the tie bag. I can't wait to start that.

It was a fun fun to start on that bag.

Lots and Lots to catch up on...

Where do I begin? Just last weekend we went to Pawleys Island again...and indulged in some much needed rest. DH and DD both spent time in the pool at my friend Marilyn's house while she and I chatted about quilting (what else is there?). On saturday Marilyn and I went to 2 quilt shops and we took little Ellie with us. There they are in Pawleys Island quilt shop Island Threads. And look at the cutesy fabrics!!

I purchased some cat fabrics and one yellow with mice that I just LOVE. I have no idea what I will do with it but I love it.
