Fun Week!

TUESDAY I went to the quilt shop to sew with some friends. Left to right; Kathy, Deanie (my mom-in-law) Lori (my sis-in-law) and Carol NOTICE: Can you see my Christmas Cottages up on the design wall? I LOVE THEM!! Marta, Becky and Carla I worked on some Dear Jane blocks for a Christmas swap. * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * THURSDAY I went to SLC with my friend Cheryl. We went to Linda Taylor's Gammill Long-arm Quilting shop for some batting and supplies for Cheryl. Then we went to Unraveled Sheep, a yarn shop in Sandy. They had beautiful yarn and fibers and fun ladies that were just hanging out and knitting in the shop. Cheryl talked me into learning how to knit, so my first project will be a scarf. Our next stop was to Whimsy quilt shop. Nancy, the owner is so nice and is great to chat with. I found some awesome fabrics. You've gotta click the pictures to fully appreciate them! You love them right!?! * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * - * FRIDAY I went to my friend Kathy's house to watch The Cowboys staring John Wayne. I've been teasing her for a long time that John Wayne can not act. She would get defensive and insist that his movies are great. I said prove it! Well, she just had a new home built and it has a wonderful home theatre. Large dark room with black leather recliner sectionals on two tiers, a projector and large screen. She even served us lunch before hand! The movie WAS pretty good and John Wayne was alright. The next movie we want to view at her home is Mamma Mia! And TODAY I've been grounded (poor me!) to the sewing machine so I can get all my Dear Jane swap blocks done! I'd say that was almost as perfect as a week can get!

What a fantastic week! That fabric certainly suits the shop name - very whimsical indeed. And I don't think John Wayne could act, but he certainly had presence.

That does sound like a great week! I'm so glad you got to do so many creative and fun things. I am so impressed that you picked up knitting so fast - it took me forever to get the hang of it! It's a fun hobby; I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do. :)
