Last Sunday Sewing

 I just didn't like the overall look of my Nimble Thimbles challenge quilt so I took it apart and changed it u.  I like it better now. 
I also decided to whip up a quick hand sewing project for the cruise.  Made up hexies in little flowers and am hoping I can make one a day and it will come together in no time!


 I used fun modern looking fabrics and clipped them in sets to make it easier.

 Becky and I fly out on Saturday morning and return the following Sunday night!  Cannot wait!

Rally in the Valley Shop Hop Day Two!

Today Limbania joined Kathy and Tiffany and I for shop hop.  We had a lot of fun!  

 Last week we ran into Crystal and Deb at several stores and this week we saw them again (they are in pink)!  They belong to Nimble Thimbles Guild and go to Quilt Camp so that is alot of fun!

 New shop on the hop this year is Mad B's  It was a fun and friendly shop.
 The demo gal used to go to girl scout camp on the same lake as my Grandparents' cottage and not far from Camp Manitou where I used to go to camp.  SMALL WORLD!


 Today's purchases!

 Kathy bought herself a minion panel (not this one though).


 More purchases.

 Limbania is helping Tiffany find a fabric that works with what she already has.  She helped me for something I was working on that I need to rework too!

 More purchases.

  Last purchase.
Best photo of the day was at a pizza place down the way from the last quilt shop.  We had to take a picture with the minion!  It was another great shopping day!  
Now I need to get to kitting up my cruise quilt stuff and packing.  This time next week I will be on the Freedom of the Seas heading to the Caribbean!

Rally in the Valley Shop Hop 2015: Day One!
