Mini Vacation - Day 2...!

On the next morning of my mini vacation, we had planned a visit to a primitive style quilt shop owned by Peg Springstead called The Quilted Crow in Sanitaria, New York.

Gosh did I feel welcome!

The front porch!  How cute is that?!

At the end of the porch!

Say no more, I'm going in! ;o)

I could just feel the creative energy rising!  Oh my gosh, I could not wait to explore every nook and cranny.  On your left!

Turn to the right! Behind the threadle is the check out area!  Yea, I checked out alright! ;o)

The wool area!

For those of you into needle punch, she had some beautiful samples.

Another corner!

Now, I normally do not even bother with this but.... I just could not resist!

Check out the Loo.... how inviting is that?

Come on, tell me you cannot find inspiration in here! lol

For those of you.....

Who have received your copy of the Primitive Quilts and Project Fall 2012 issue, you will find a sweet quilt pattern published by Peg, the owner of Quilted Crow New York.

Turn to page 70 of your issue to find Sweet Pickins, a prim Pumpkin pattern.

For those wishing to buy a copy, Fibre Junction does have a few issues left in stock.

I hope you have enjoyed touring this wonderful primitive shop as much as I have enjoyed writing about it.

This little shop is now part of my "favourite" list.

Thanks for touring with me.  More to come as I continue my mini vacation!

MIA .....!

Naw, I've just been busy enjoying my mini vacation! ;o)  It feels so good to have some down time.  The Shoppe Troll, as she lovely like to be referred, is managing Fibre Junction.  I could get used to this! ;o)

Where have I been you might ask?  Nothing exotic, that is, unless you consider Syracuse, New York, exotic! lol  We left early Friday morning and headed off to East Syracuse to meet up with Janet from Calico Gals.

Fibre Junction, along with 62 other quilt shops across the state of New York, are participating in a Row-By-Row shop hop called - I Love Stitching in New York.  Janet is the main organizer/brains of the shop hop and I just helped her a tiny bit!  ;o)

It was wonderful to connect! We went out for lunch at Joey's Italian Restaurant.  The food was yummy!  Janet is a wealth of information and kindly shared her business knowledge with me.  We did do a mini brainstorming for next years Row-by-Row shop hop!

Calico Gals were also hosting a quilt retreat, that we were invited to join.  That evening, Gina and I had a wonderful time, meeting new quilters and enjoying some down time.

During the retreat, we had the opportunity to join in on various groups projects.

This is what we chose to make!

Yes, wool! Have I mentioned that I'm hooked on wool? lol  Like I need more hand projects!

I enjoyed working on this pin cushion while getting to know the various quilters.

What fun we had!  It's amazing the topics of conversations that can come up in a room full of quilters on a retreat! lol

Thanks for stopping by.  More later about the rest of my mini vacation!

Deliciously ghastly in green!

I love them all!  You will find a all of these prints at Fibre Junction!  I love my job! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by!  Cheers!

We interrupt our regular schedule programming....

Well, I just received a newsletter from the designer of the Mill House Girls block of the month. I'm a little perturbed here!

I'd like for you to compare the photographs from her news letter with my photographs, which were posted on a blog entry I wrote back in June 20, 2012.  All I did was save picture as from her newsletter and left her file name as is.

My photograph

Nancy Rink's photograph from her newsletter to shop owners.

My photograph:

Nancy Rink's photograph from same newsletter.

Again my photograph.

Once again, her photograph.

What are the chances?  Coincidence?  

What's your take on this?  Inquiring minds want to know! ;o)

Thanks for your input! Cheers!

It's a family reunion...!

Anyone for a family reunion?

Even more ghastly in mauve!
