Happy National Quilting Day

New Bad Melisa bag with the overflow...just in time for Shop Hop

I think it should be national quilting week but that is just my opinion!

Today was Thimbles and it was grand. Most Exalted High Thimble was in attendance and she looking quite well considering she is only 5 weeks post new knee. It was good to see her again. It was, as usual, great to see all of the gals in the group. Gretchen was missed but she is away on a relaxing weekend. Becky worked on binding and started on a flannel rag quilt. Cindi was just cutting away at her latest project-a quilt from the favorite Jelly roll book.

As for me, I could not decide what I wanted to work on today. I foraged in the sewing room and came up with any number of projects that I could do. Since it is officially Spring as of yesterday, I needed to do something bright. I decided to take my jelly roll of Fresh and I found a quicky pattern. Of course, then I had to make an emergency call to Melisa to make sure she still had fabric for the border. I can never do anything easy!! She does and I will run down on Mon after work and pick it up.

We talked about plans for next weekend and the Shop Hop but nothing is definite yet. I will be doing the hop with Louise. I have to map out the plans but we will do most of the shops on Saturday and finish up on Sunday afternoon. Hopefully we will get all the shops but the Marietta ones on Saturday because they are spread out. Not that I need anything but I am looking forward to seeing what the other stores have.

Tomorrow is the opening celebration for the shop -Patchwork Cottage on Sugarloaf. I might try to go over there since it is so close. Pat Sloan is going to be there doing whatever.....

And now I must go continue celebrating this most important holiday!
