On a beautiful drippy Monday………

It’s a good time to share what my trek to the Black Hills, and friend Annie’s Belle Fourche quilt shopIMG_6116 (The Bakery Fabrics), yielded. My primary goal was to find a fabric that would bring out the gorgeous cut-work of this vintage piece (see here for post story)………Success!!! A Michael Miller Fabric solid in a shade of deep coral…IMG_6118   The two pieces are neatly folded together awaiting future fun!

Next, was fabric needed for a Texas workshop next winter……again-success!!!! IMG_6119  The colors are a bit difficult, but that’s a dark coffee brown that will really set off all the Primitive Muslin solids. The print will be the border and the solid green, the backing and binding. Yay!!!

Finally……two gorgeous “I just had to have” Tula Pink fabrics (idea is percolating!!)……….IMG_6121


The weather in the Hills turned a beastly temp with humidity to match, so we headed to Hill City and I found this pair of slipper sox…….IMG_6122

For all those who find that their machine’s power pedal creeps away, these cuties are the answer. The cute grippers on the soles work well to hold on to that pesky pedal and keep it where it belongs………..



To see my first post on this subject, hop over here.

Returning home, I was greeted with this sweet package (the Missouri Star Quilt Co. daily deal struck again!! LOL!)…………IMG_6124IMG_6125

No plans for this…..yet!




Now…….on to the day. Laundry begun, bread rising, some vintage pressing done. Let’s see…………what is up first…….

    The slipper socks are a great idea when sewing. I have been using them for a number of years. Discovered quite by accident that my foot didn’t slip either and I could hold the speed better when I wear them. Good to keep feet warm in the winter too. 😉

    Glad to hear you are home safely. Carol and I did a short shop hop to Winona on Friday. 1/2 price on clearance fabric. Picked up some backing fabric and of course some extra for the stash.

  3. Oooh! I especially like the color of that Michael Miller fabric!

    Looks like a fun – and successful shopping time 🙂 Love the coral fabric you got to put behind the vintage cutwork! Great idea with the socks too!

    You sure found some fun stuff on your trip! I was at the MN quilt show and managed to help out the economy too, LOL Also stopped at SR Harris on the way home Sat. We camped up there for a few days too so a couple of nice bike rides and walks.

    I can not wait to see what you do “to” the beautiful grey stitched vintage! I’m thinking that you will be needing a few more “drippy” days! You’ll have to check the KB FB page to see what I ‘scored’ today in Mount Vernon, Iowa! http://www.heliosstitchesnstuff.com They have some very unique fabrics! Just might be running thru your neck of the woods after we visit in Cresco this week! 🙂 We have seen some beautiful countryside here in Iowa. Love all of the green fields and manicured lawns! Oh…and beautiful canopy’s of the trees!

    Beautiful fabrics and cute socks! I love the Tula Pinks – waiting to see what you do with them.

  9. Do I ever love that Missouri Star Quilt Co fabric. Anything vintage looking appeals to me.
