Joann's is carry some great quilting fabrics. I will always support my local quilt shops (and some not-so-local quilt shops) but sometimes it is nice to do a quick run through Joann's - especially for backing fabrics.
After making socks ... lots and lots of socks ... I've decided to make myself a sweater. I was a crocheter long before I was a knitter and I'm loving how this sweater is turning out. The left front is done and I'm working on the back. The whole body is done as one piece! The pattern is from The Crochet Closet by Lisa Gentry
And this ...
This is for dessert tonight - a family favorite - Chocolate Trifle. My 14 year old niece and nephew are arriving today for a week-long visit. This is John's all-time favorite and because I am the best aunt, I made it special for him.
OK ... really I made it because I'm panicked. I have 2 teenagers, who live 3 minutes from the beach in Florida and have a great community pool, coming to MD where we are 3 HOURS from the beach and we've got a hose. 2 years ago, Krista came to visit and we sewed and shopped for a week. This time, she's coming with her brother and somehow I don't think sewing will be on the agenda. Baseball game - yes, quilt shop - probably not ... pray for me.
