Don't Ya Just Love A Quilt Shop

While on the trip to PRIMITVES OF THE MIDWEST my BFF tooks us to a sweet quilt shop in Kansas..Shawnee Mission.. called PRAIRIE POINT..The ladies there are all authors and love what they do.The shop is packed full of samples and wonderful quilts.. If you are ever close you must go..     You might even have some of their patterns,, Kathy Delaney, Jeannie Poore, Donna Thomas?    

Then on to lunch at DEAN & DELUCA'S, yummmmmmmm..We had a great lunch but unfortunately everything in that place was out of my price range, I am not kidding, I know their products are great but, I'm just sayin'.

This gentleman was giving samples of a thin biscotti that was delicious but $14 a box?? Let's get real here.. We are retired,, ya know , fixed income.. Glad it wasn't fabric I was lookin' at,,ya know what I mean..Gulp!!!!
All said and done the time went way to fast,, Home now to new ideas

Workshop At Quilters Station

The shop in Lees Summit is one of the best I have seen,,The way they have the shop decorated is wonderful and sooooooooooo much fabric, all most overwhelming. Good thing I don't live close. Rita  is a lovely host and all the ladies there are waiting to help you with your latest project. When I arrived I gave Rita one of my Raggedy pinheads as a gift, sorry Rita, I didn't know you closed your eyes.. Pattern from The OldeCountry Cupboard..The shop is full of ideas and many samples.. More to come on the trip soon

I was very fortunate to get to attend PRIMITIVES OF THE MIDWEST this past week. Mr.Couple went with me and we really enjoyed ourselves..If you have never been it is quite the event and you will not be disappointed, I can guarantee. The photo is Jennifer Erbe Keltner , executive editor of AMERICAN PATCHWORK & QUILTING.  She is most entertaining, funny and full of great ideas.. We were privileged to view some awesome quilts from previous issues and future ones too. All of the classed had expert teachers that we all admire and I loved meeting them. My class was with Renee Plains, we did a small wall hanging but only got one block finished.. I didn't even get one finished but I am ok with that, I learned lots, and a new technique. This is photo of my class with Renee in the center, she is so much fun.
I have much more to tell in later post................Glad to be back..
