5th shop on tour, "Christmas Goose"!

This is my only purchase at the Christmas Goose Quilt Shop! It was about 3:30pm, I was tired, my feet were sore, and I was done for the day... You know that feeling!?! 8-)
I thought this pattern would make cute aprons to add to future shower gifts, AND be worn in the future, when in the family way... lol! 8-)

The shop had loads of patterns to look through, lovely fabrics, I was tempted by the charm packs, but held back, and they had lots of wools and wool patterns. If they would have had a kit for this haunted house pattern I would have bought it to give that a try.
I am allergic to wool, but friends seemed to think the wool product that is used for quilting/small projects may not give me the "rash" I would get from wool blankets and clothing... Normally if I have wool against me I feel very itchy within a minute...

Bathed both the fur-girls and washed all their bedding yesterday, cause I woke to find Ruby had brought up in her kennel in the morning... It was time for a bathing for them anyway!!!
OH JOY!!! 8-/
Now they smell wonderful, and feel so much softer... 8-)

I am aiming to get some stitching/cutting done today, but then my best layed plans don't always come to be...
Thus why I call myself "a sluggish quilter". 8-)

Happy stitchings everyone!

Oh, yes...I have gotten to the point of not even wanting to LOOK at more fabrics after a long day (at a quilt show or when going to several shops in one day). I do know the feeling. Cute pattern you got, though. Your dogs are so cute...I always like to see them...even though I can never recall which one is which.

The shopping tour sounds like it was wonderful. I can imagine how sore my feet would have been - that burning feeling, but satisfied as well.

Happy cutting AND sewing.
