Off to find fabric!

Good Evening, friends, As you know, my friend Regina has invited me to a "no-pressure" quilt along. After viewing my extensive stash, I determined that I didn't have anything to inspire me to get with the program. I have spent the week in Grand Rapids at a conference and on my way home I found a new quilt shop! Seven Sisters Quilt Shop, found in Carson City, MI. The shop and its owners were delightful. The shop has been open for three weeks. I enjoyed the complimentary tea and cookies while waiting for fabrics to jump out and speak to me. Since this quilt along envolves snowballs what better fabric to select than snowflakes! I'm not sure I have all of the right colors, but I came home with four pieces of fabric. I have yet to take it out of the cute little shopping bag, will I still be inspired?
Yesterday, I made a roaster full of corn chowder for a fund raising for our Southern Links Trailway. It was fun. Today, Sunday, I spent the day in bed. Every time I over extend myself I get sick, I'm hoping I'll be all better tomorrow. Happy February! Val


  1. Wow you're moving along just fine. Can't wait to see the snowball blocks. Take care of yourself.

  2. Look at you, Girlfriend! Posting and everything! Sorry you're sick, too. I heard you were, but I've just not been up to do anything myself. My sewing room is calling my name, but I think I better stay upstairs where it's warmer! Miss you! Let me know when you are ready to throw some snowballs and we'll get together. Love ya!
