My New Place

Well I have yet to get pictures for the blog of my new place. I found my camera but have not found the compact flash card that goes in the camera. I know I downloaded some pictures before I moved and am not sure where things got put. I have unpacked and put away alot of things but have not come across that card yet.

The kitties have become used to the new place and have returned to their routine sleeping places along with a few new ones because of the different configuration of the house. Thelma right now is hiding some where and the other two are sleeping on the couch next to me.

So yesterday and today I went into town to check out the Local Quilt shops. I love 2 of them for sure and the 3rd one I'm not sure about. The Shops are all 25+ miles away from me. I'm still not
sure if that is a good thing (fewer trips to them) or a bad thing (bigger purchases when I do go).

Thimbletowne has a lot of flowery fabric.. and some great classes. I was invited to guild this thursday and I am excited about it. (Can't wait). I figure I'll go to guild a few times and see if I like it and make some new friends.

The second shop StashBuilders is different than I have ever seen. I loved the displays in the windows. Then you go inside and there isn't fabric on the bolt... everything is already cut for you (even better to convince you to buy that extra half yard.. LOL). The fabric is organised by color and by cuts. FQ in one area, then 1/2 yd, 1 yd, and 3 yd cuts are organized along the wall. I saw alot of great fabric and yes bought some too.

I joined 4 block of the months yesterday:

I know with the little pictures they all llok the same but they aren't 3 are snowmen, Hot Chocolate Club, Blizzard Buddies and Family Reuinion and the 4th is called Chilly Charmers and is little penguins.
I also ordered the Miranda Bag pattern, Lazy Girl pouches and I couldn't stand it anymore I had to know what everyone was talking about so I ordered the Pajama quilter and it was confirmed that it shipped today. Think I'll get it Friday? I hope so!
I got some other goodies today too but I will save them for later. Well When I have the camera and things ready to take pictures.

Glad to hear you are getting settled and finding the quilt shops. Are any of the BOM's Pearl Louise Designs? They look very familiar.

Those panels are so cool I can't wait to see what you do with them. The new quilt stores sound fun. I'm finishing up my first Miranda bag and you're just going to love making one.

Glad you and the cats are settling in. You are very ambitious to join 4 BOM's! Have fun doing them, they are all cute.
