Very, very bright and early on Saturday morning, fellow quilter Sheila and I headed for Moosomin, Saskatchewan for a day of browsing, shopping, visiting and eating. Shirley’s Sewing Room has been in Moosomin for quite a number of years and my husband always like to skirt around and avoid stopping here. So this was a wonderful, focused trip with no other reason except to shop!
Oh look! There’s a little elevator pattern that looks kinda familiar. I think I walked past it a couple of times without even noticing. Here is a different kind of quilt – possibilities for a group project here I think. This book was so interesting that it even came home in the bag with me.
Here are a couple of other things that also came home with me – a 2010 calendar with patterns for every quilt in there; a Nancy Halverson book called “I Believe” which has some really nice Christmas items; some batiks for a table runner (next photo); and some yardage that has little tiny stars and dots that might work for a snowman quilt.
This is a table runner that we are hoping to do as a group project, although some gals have already made one (or two!) of these. Very striking design and I can’t wait to see how those colors that I’ve chosen will look in those circles. I still need to find a light centre color before I can get started, but all in all I’m closer to starting than I was before.
and this one too!
We had such a good day and the weather was beautiful – great day for a road trip.
Oh, and my VISA is now stuck in my wallet and cannot come out for a couple of weeks.
‘til next time,
