A wonderful weekend....

That's what we've had. It's short and sweet. The weather in Iowa is nothing short of perfect. Here are my 2 girls and my niece playing at Flora Park in Dubuque. After they played and played for literally hours they came home and rested and I was able to do a little shopping. I found the new McCall's Quilting magazine and love it...it has the new Modabakeshop ad! :) I was also tempted to visit the local quilt shop where I was lucky enough to score some new Moda. I about fell on the floor when I realized they had one of each of these available. Mill House Inn?? Woohoo....I feel like I won the lottery. Plus the newest the Collection for a Cause - Alliance. I'm in fabric heaven.

It is taking ALL of my will power to not rip them open...but I am not home with all my quilting supplies...I still don't have a clear plan of what they will become...a new Moda Bake Shop project?? maybe...
I ♥ Moda
gosh I have been smiling so much my face hurts.
I also picked up Double Takes 3 which I have been eyeing for awhile. Plus a new Bareroots Halloween stitchery. Halloween is my favorite holiday.

All in all it was an awesome weekend. We're heading home.

I hope it continues!

OK...yes...so TOTALLY jealous that you have some Mill House! I love me some Figgy... I would have had to buy them first and then shop around some more...just to make sure that I knew that they would be mine and no fight would break out! You know how crazy quilters can be :)

Your girls are so cute. They do look like they're having fun!

You really hit the jackpot! I think I bought that Double Takes 3 pattern when I went to Paducah. I'll have to check my pattern bin!
