My Time Away...

I went to Thunderbay to visit friend H and her family for an extended weekend (Thursday till Tuesday). This furry girl was part of the welcoming committee.
Her name is Beauty. They think she is part Giant Schnauzer and Shepard...
What a big sweetie she is... 8-)

In this photo, 2 deer that were right across the street from H's house, in town...
Second deer in the background...

First visit to a quilt shop for H and her daughter J, and my first visit to this shop...
It was a lovely little shop...

This is the pattern of calendar quilts that H bought...
Click on the link to see the package. You can view the 12 quilts there...
H also bought fabrics to make December's wall-quilt, and J bought fabrics (Fabricland) to make April's wall-quilt... This is their very first experience in quilting...
These beauties will each measure 20"x 28" finished... H and J were quite excited with their progress... 8-)

Here is my Batik purchase. I thought it a good choice to make DS a quilt in the near future... 8-)
I just have to find a brown to match for an outside border... Thinking Disappearing 9-Patch pattern...

I couldn't pass up these 2 wall-quilt hangers. There were others that I could have bought also, but one can only buy so much at a time...
Patterns here I couldn't pass up... for future projects... you know... lol! 8-)
I had seen the dress/bloomer made up on Julie's blog a while back and thought it adorable, so I was some pleased finding it... 8-)

J and I went to Fabricland where she bought her fabrics for her April wall-quilt, and at $1.99 a FQ, I had to get my share too... A nice variety of colors...
A Wally-mart purchase of new magazines...
I had a wonderful stay with H! Excellent meals H!! Thanks a bunch, and good luck to you and J with the rest of those awesome projects!!!

We are experiencing some rotten weather up here right now. Rainy, cold, and very, very windy. They say the snow may be coming later tonight... NOOOOOoooooo...... Not ready for that!!!

I've managed to take a quick peek at some of my friendly bloggers posts, and am awestruck of what I've seen picture-wise!!! I will pop back for a read and comment tomorrow as I am mostly doing catchup with DH today... 8-)

Hope you are all having a great week!

Myra

Looks and sounds like you had a great time. It's nice to get away like that with friends.

Please no snow yet!!!

Brenda said...

We have already had snow.... yuck!!
It is supposed to all be gone by Halloween and not a snowball in sight until after! Now, that I like!!

Sounds like you had a great time at H & J's!! And look at you - turning them onto quilting!!!! Was it for your benifit that you got them interested? You know, now you have more reasons to go for a visit!! They might need help you know!! *wink/wink*
It's good you went to visit them - now they have something to do through the winter months!!!! lol!!

Some great finds there. I never did find that quilt store in T-Bay when my daughter lived there.

Just nipping by Myra. Lovely finds you have there. Looks like a really enjoyable visit. I notice there are no roses around where the deer are :-0
I wonder why?
Little devils love everything eatable in a garden.
As for Beauty, isn't she just that :-)xxx

It's nice to hear that you ha such a good trip!
What eyecandy! The fabrics are great and I like H's calender too. Her finished blocks look nicer than the "original".
Lots of great finds!!
