Busy Bee....Buzzzzzzz

Today I am a busy bee...getting ready for the Fabric Stalkers Spring retreat.  What projects to bring??? UFO's...something new...handwork...machine projects????  what, what, what shall I bring???  I love the Spring retreat because it is usually away from here but not so far away that you are tired getting there and not so close that you feel compelled to let your day to day life get in the way.

Once I get packed I'll show you what I am taking and then we can see what I actually get done, lol.  

Last week in Portland I took 2 trips to Powell's with my youngest grandson.  That trip only allowed me to skim the quilt book isle which is huge.  On my second trip HH headed to the Pearl room and I took a stool to the Quilting isle and immersed myself in all that it had to offer.  Powell's is the largest independent bookstore in the Pacific Northwest and it carries new and used books.  I found this used book on Sashiko Quilting for $2.95!!!  it definitely is dated but the patterns are timeless.

...and it included 4 mylar design templates!  I love a good find!

Well, I noticed that the Woolie Blog is not far from 500,000 page views!!! and that the registered followers are only 3 shy from 650!!!  I decided which ever comes first...we will have a GIVEAWAY!!!  So stay tuned....
