Hello! Took time yesterday to do a little retail therapy- I hit the local quilt store in Springfield, MO and the bead shop. I did find some cool books, plus a delightful purse pattern seen here:
The purse pattern is unusual in that it has an interesting braided handle and way of attaching. When I eventually make this, I’ll share more.
Today, I’m headed back in town to visit the local fiber store, plus the fabric store. My dad has some furniture cushions that are sliding around so I will fix that for him before I fly home this weekend.
I also have been busy beading- so far I’ve made 4 new pieces to share when I get back home to my laptop. I also can’t wait to get back to my quilting machine- I have withdrawals if I don’t use it. LOL!
Note to all the kind blog readers/friends who have emailed me about my father. He is doing much better now and his last surgery earlier this week went very well! Unfortunately, there is a glitch on my iphone, so my email replies are not sending. When I arrive home, I will also post a list of inchies received in my inchie swap while I was gone.
Last, but not least, a quick shout out to Michele Foster, over at the Quilting Bloggers (see link on my side bar). She has posted 3 Feathered Fibers cartoons I drew last year in her Quilting Gallery. Go check out her site, Michele has done a great job of compiling quilting blogs and other quilting resources in one terrific location. If you have a blog, you might also want to add your site, too.
Miss you all!! Hugs, Carla
