So I spent last weekend in Salt Lake City at the Sewing Summit. It's a super cool sewing/blogging conference that's going to happen once a year - this was the first one. It was awesome. No really - Awesome. It was so super cool to meet up with all these ladies that are super into sewing and creating and design. Loved it - very inspiring, I'll totally go again next year. I didn't take a camera, so here are some of my horrible phone pics of the Fabric Shop Hop I went on last Friday. Was it just a week ago? It kind of all seems like a dream already.
50 fab ladies on a bus shopping for fabric. Noone threw up (bus driver was sketchy).
There were ducks hanging out in front of Pine Needles Shop
This creepy thing was also hanging out there. Who did this, and why?
Monica got a pretty end cap at Material Girls shop - I touched it a bit
Worst picture ever - my loot from the shop hop. Not too much damage done...
Seriously cute faces I cam back to after 3 nights. One is flipping me off and the other is putting on her 'smile' face. They were way more into the salt water taffy that I brought them, than me.
So overall, it was a blast, I learned, I met awesome peeps, I laughed (a lot), I drank (a little), I crocheted (more on that later), and I just had a big smile on the whole time.
I'm not the best writer - many others have summed things up alot better than I can. Check it out.
OK, I have actually been back for awhile and I have sewn 1 thing...
My fave local quilt shop is Cool Cottons... I live literally 3 blocks from it. If you ever see me there in a car, shame on me. A couple of weeks ago I was in there and found this super weird/cool fabric with dress patterns all over it. I had to have it.
Not long after, the Quilt Club started up, and I found the perfect use for that fabric. Here's my 1st 'homework' block from quilt club. I screwed it up, then compensated for it. I like it, it's a little funky. I think I'll use this same combo of fabrics for the whole club quilt.
OK, WOW, long post - sorry. So if you made it this far, how about a treat? Maybe a giveaway? One lucky reader will receive their choice of 1 item from my shop - just leave a comment telling me which one sounds best...I just added some new ones too! 1 comment per reader - and I'm gonna make this a quickie, because my hubs is having hernia surgery next tuesday, so I'll pick a winner at 5pm on monday the 17th, hurry up, and make sure I can find you. Cheers all, have a happy and safe weekend
