I'm spoiled!

The Honey certainly loves me! 32 roses for our anniversary yesterday plus bath goods and a gift certificate to my LQS! Also had dinner out at a local restaurant that caters to my dieting ways. It was yummy! Yea!


Here are the goodies I purchased from the Utah Shop Hop. Just getting around to putting them away. The weeks have been busy around here! I wasn't too impressed with the "sales" most of the shops had...meaning there wasn't much of a sale...but when I saw 20% on the books at a few of the stores, I took advantage of it and bought a couple that I had been wanting to buy. The owl pattern was so cute made up into a quilt so I bought it. Found the owl fabric at 40% off and will use it for the backing of the future quilt! Don't you love how Broadbent's folds their fabric they cut for you?! You can see everything you purchased while it is neatly folded for you! Got the fat quarters and sparkly fabric at shops that had them on sale. I never like to buy full price if I don't have to!

Paducah, Kentucky

I never showed my pics of Paducah so thought I would share them today. What a cute town! Loved the wall of murals by the river. Went to the Farmer's Market and bought some foot lotion that was made locally to take home with me. There was also the National Quilt Museum to visit. The really fun part of the day was finding Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day shop and hearing that everything in the store was 30% off! Poor Honey had to walk around town by himself while I shopped there.

Utah Shop Hop 2010

The theme of this year's shop hop was Celebrations. Here are a few of the quilts that were made by a few of the quilt shops. Can you guess the celebration from each quilt?
This is Family Reunion from Corn Wagon Quilt Co.

I really loved this Birthday quilt that Broadbents made! Notice the banner? So cute to see it in person.
4th of July from Thimbles and Threads in Draper.
Material Girls chose Mother's Day as their theme. We all received crowns so we were Queens for a Day.
Are we ready for some football?! Cute idea from Quilt's Etc. They even had a tailgate party out back!
May Day from Sew Sweet. Very cute quilt and one I might have to make.
This quilt was from Village Dry Goods in Brigham City. You will really have to guess their celebration because I can't remember. I do remember there were pictures of old records on their floor with songs on them.
Cinco de Mayo was the festive theme from Quilter's Haven. I always enjoy visiting this shop.
Again, I can't remember Piper's celebration.
Elaine's chose New Year's Eve. This was also a great quilt. Loved the sparkly fabric in it!

One store, Quilt's Etc, was generous to give away a free pattern to make this cute bag.
Had a great time hopping from store to store! Of course I made some purchases. Will try to get those posted asap. Life is still so busy around here with my son home and family visiting. Have also been to our cabin at the lake for several days. Tomorrow I head to Girl's Camp with the girls from our Church. Busy, busy, sewing....but am having fun!

By the time you read this....

.....we will have picked up our son from his mission for our Church! This is a picture of my son 2 years ago right after he left.
While he's been gone, he has worn out not 1 but 3 pairs of shoes from walking door to door to share our Church's message about Jesus Christ.
The Honey and I are picking him up in Tennessee. But we are going to do some traveling and see the different areas where our son has lived. I am so excited that I get to visit Paducah, Kentucky! As you can see, our son served in that area and has already told me how much I am going to love it.
So now you know why I haven't been doing too much sewing or blogging! Getting ready for this boy to get home has taken lots of my time. Of course, I wouldn't have it any other way!
