Nothing quilty - yet.

Nothing very quilty has been going on here this week. I did go to the B.O.M. meeting at Among Friends on Monday. I was afraid I would miss it this month and have to pay my $5 to get my block, but thanks to a cancelled (postponed) doctor appointment I was able to take advantage of the drive to Louisville and make the Monday meeting. At the monthly meetings, Wendy always highlights the new fabrics and products in the shop. And they always have the newest, prettiest, cutest stuff!


This is the new Prairie Paisley line by Moda. I've been admiring this online ever since I first saw it. They have a quilt kit for sale that is similar to the one that Cheryl at PolkDotsandRickRack is working on. I was tempted to buy the kit, but have enough projects right now. I did bring home a few fat quarters to drool over and add to the "stash" :) I spent several minutes admiring the HQ16 that they have on display there. I wish my quilting skills were good enough to warrant the investment. Maybe someday in the distant future! Practice, practice, practice! I'm jealous of everyone that was talking about going to Paducah this weekend. D had said he would take me, but our plans are to work on the house instead this weekend (I'm sure a motorcycle ride will evolve sometime). I'm sure going to the AQS Quilt Show would only cause un-necessary purchases and tempt me with projects I don't have time to complete! Beamer has a visit to the vet this afternoon. He hates, hates, hates to ride in the car. I'll have to find his cat carrier and turn the radio up really loud to tune out his yowls. Hopefully, we'll both arrive safe and sound! Last night, he decided to take a horizontal bath on my bed. Blissfully unaware of the trauma that awaits later today! Wish us luck!
