AN ADVENTURE

MY HUSBAND AND I WENT ON A LITTLE ADVENTURE TODAY.  WE BOTH HAD THE DAY OFF WORK AND DECIDED TO GO SPEND THE DAY IN ST. CLOUD.  IT IS ABOUT AN HOUR AWAY AND WE HAVE ONLY DRIVEN AROUND IT NEVER THRU IT.  WE HAD A VERY GOOD TIME. I PICKED OUT ONE SHOP I WANTED TO GO TO.  HE PICKED OUT THREE  AND FOUND ANOTHER ONCE WE ARRIVED.  WE ALSO HAD LUNCH AT RED LOBSTER. MY HUSBAND LOVES BOTH FISH AND SEAFOOD.  ESPECIALLY AROUND CHRISTMAS!  SO I GUESS YOU KNOW BY NOW MY SHOP WAS A QUILT SHOP; AND IT WAS FANTASTIC!


I PURCHASED A 1/4 YD. OF STAR FABRIC SO THAT I CAN MAKE BLOCK #51,NEW YORK OF BARBARA BRACKMAN'S  BLOCK OF THE WEEK.

 THREE REDS ,ONE BLUE AND ONE BLACK CIVIL WAR PRINTS.


I PICKED OUT THESE PATTERNS WHICH SUPPOSED TO BE HAND PIECED AND/OR HAND APPLIQUED.  GRANDMA SHIRLEY WAS THERE , I MET HER ,  AND I GOT TO TALK WITH HER. I FOUND HER QUITE INTERESTING. 


I HAVE MET THE LADY WHO DID THIS PATTERN AT THE MINNEAPOLIS QUILT SHOW.  I HAVE DONE SOME OF HER EMBROIDERY AND CRAYOLA FABRIC COLORING AND ENJOYED THE PREVIOUS PATTERNS. ALL TOGETHER IT WAS A GOOD DAY AND I ENJOYED SPENDING THE DAY WITH HUBBY.  

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY , SEW A LITTLE!  MARTHA
