My First Mini

On the HGTV board, I am participating in a Mini Quilt swap and have never made one before. In talking to my friend Nicki, we decided we would do a mini mini swap between the two of us...she loves Asian fabrics and LOVES the color what could be more prefect than an Asian blue mini quilt ??? The quilts not perfect, but the idea was there !!

Little things mean a lot

I think Im like most people and love surprises. Friday I had a slip in my mail box to go pick up a package at the picked it up and it was a box that had traveled all the way from North Carolina. I shook it, it didnt make any wasnt very heavy...needless to say I was perplexed. I am the type though that can wait to open things and drove home with it sitting next to me in the front seat. It was trying to get the better of me and at every stop light I kept trying to tear the tape off and get inside....wasnt working too good !! So, finally I got home and tore open the package...inside was this cute little guy !

Quiltaholic had found him on her journey back from the Retreat in Manchester and had thought of me !!!! What a wonderful surprise and memory of the Retreat !!! Thanks Q!!!!!!!

Birthdays can be fun again.....

Yesterday I turned step closer to the big 50!! This year I was in the CQ Embellishment swap on the HGTV board and received close to 30 packages of all fun things for CQing... for those not familiar with stands for Crazy Quilting. Originally when I heard about it, I said NO WAY !! No way was I going to get into another hobby...but...thanks to my good friend Nicki, that did NOT happen. I cant wait to open all these packages and see the wonderful things that all these Crazy Ladies have sent.

But, I did want to share a picture of a gift I received from a friend who is not a quilter, crazy she might be, but not a quilter. This is absolutely is a tea pot in the shape of a sewing machine and has a blue and white quilt on it...How cute is that !!! It is perfect and I love it....

Welcome to my first blog...called " Lost in a Quilt Store". This is my first attempt at blogging, so please excuse any little errors I may make.

The reason I named my blog, Lost in a Quilt Store, is that is exactly what happens to me when I enter one....I always say it will only take a minute to find what I am looking for, but of course, hours have gone by and I feel that I am lost. This is the place for me to share my love of quilting, crazy quilting and cross stitch with everyone !!!
