On my way into Gatlinburg, I had about an hour to kill before we could check into the condo, so I used my Quilt Shops ap to search for nearby shops. I found Kat Lover's Quilt Shop in Knxoville....what a cute little shop!!! She had a few pieces on sale that I needed to bring home...
And of course you can't go to Gatlinburg without visiting The Cherry Pit in Sevierville!!! (And by the way, if you try to find them on the web, go to this link...http://www.quiltingatthecherrypit.com/. If you omit "quilting at", you'll get a site you really don't want - take my word for it!!!)
I found this bright plaid on the 1/2 price table - $5 a yard - so I got a couple of yards for sashings & bindings.
Then I pulled a few fat quarters for a few projects I have in progress... soft colors for a change.
Love that gray!!!
Machine Quilting by Iva had a few things I couldn't resist too - more half-yard cuts....
Here's a picture in front of Iva's I thought you might like....

Mom is not a quilter, so you can tell she is glad the visit to Iva's is over LOL!!! But you can also tell the Debbie's are pretty happy with their purchases :*D
On the last leg of my trip, on my way to visit with my family in North Carolina, I stopped in Mary Jo's in Gastonia - fabric wonderland!!!! Considering what I usually spend in here, I did good my friends!!!
I picked up a couple of half yards of these batiks I just couldn't resist...love those aquas!!!!
And I added a few coveted and hard to find Paula Nadelstern kaleidoscope prints....
Now, are you happy? Did that feed your eye candy craving? I thought so :*D
Since hubby is cleaning the carpets in my sewing studio today, I'm going to be doing some hand work downstairs and watch the finals of the Wells Fargo Championship with him. I managed to get all the greenery done on my Promises and Borders block this week....
and hopefully I'll have it almost done by the end of the day today - WHOOHOO!!!! PS - did you notice the cute little ladybugs hiding among the greenery?
And speaking of greenery, I'll leave you with two beautiful blooms from our yard this glorious spring....
|Our very first rose bloom!|
|My favorites - the Peonies are in bloom!!!!|
Hugs & Blessings!
