Friday was day 2 of my vacation. It was also the first day of the Great Plains Sew-down a mini shop hop. It’s been a long time since I’ve been on a shop hop as I’m not buying fabric unless I need it to finish something specific. But this one the grand prize is a Featherweight sewing machine and 3 of the 6 shops I had not been to before. To top it off my husband offered to drive. Well who can turn that down?
The plan was 1 FQ per shop, picking up fabrics for Allietare, the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt starting after Thanksgiving. I may have bought a tiny bit more, but they are all for the mystery quilt. In addition to hitting the quilt shops, we stopped at several thrift shops where my husband found plenty of CDs to add to his collection. The good news was we stayed in our budget.
So, to make up for the fabric purchases, I worked on Sew Scrappy, hoping to complete the quilt top. But I hit a wall. I finished the first set of 10 alternate blocks, threw them up on the wall with the plan to start sewing the first section together, and realized I need to finish all the blocks so I can spread out the really light lights. It took the wind out of my sails. But I don’t think it’s as bad as I thought, so hopefully I’ll finish the top in the next day or two.
