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.
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!
