We’re HOME!! Such sweet words! It’s always fun to go ‘Snowbirding’, leaving the wet and cold behind…but man, is it ever sweet to get back HOME!!
First thing yesterday morning, before we did anything, we went to visit our little Mason (and Carrie too!:)) Three and a half months in a baby’s life is a long time and we noticed a lot of changes…he can sit up now, he is almost crawling and can pull himself up in his crib! He is more alert and he can hold up his arms indicating that he wants to come to YOU!! Very sweet! And he continues to be his happy, smiling self! The PERFECT baby! Come to Grammy!
And he LOVED all the toys that we bought him! Babies…correction…big boys are such fun!
And SEW are Quilt Shops! If you remember correctly we were right in the middle of a tour of Pioneer Quilts in Portland when I ran out of computer room and told you to HOLD ON…more would follow! Well today is the day!!
Joanne is going to make this quilt so this picture is for YOU!!
This quilt was hanging in the classroom…silhouettes of rabbits in action! Loved it!
Lots of wee stitcheries…wouldn’t this look cute done around those left over blocks that we all have hanging around our sewing room?!
And lots of small framed wool work!
Pincushions are definitely ‘IN’!
Dang cute and elaborate pincushions!
And don’t these pincushions look yummy…(you can buy the little tins to put them in!)
The sweetest baby quilt EVER…but so much work!
Yes, they still have a Christmas room…full of Christmas goodness!
LOVED this sweet wool runner…complete with grommets and a real shoe lace!
Valdani in all shades and colours!
Tons of hand dyed wools…and the cutest mats!
Looks like I’m back in the Christmas room….
Beautiful displays throughout the shop….
I want…I want…I want…!!
I found this Yoko Saito book ‘Houses, Houses, Houses’…their last copy and it was waiting for ME!! It was meant to be!
So much goodness in one shop!! Ohhhh… the lucky quilters who live here and have this shop to browse at their leisure whenever they want! And this is only ONE of many shop…they have several QS to choose from! Next time you are driving through Portland, slow down and take a few of these shops in…you won’t be sorry!! Besides hubby has to stretch his legs…right?
Have a FUN, FANASTIC Friday…and happy stitching!! Now that I am out of the shops maybe I will have time to do a little stitching too! :)~P
