Things are slowly getting back to normal after our move to Texas. We found a place to live – that was the main obstacle in our path when we first got here.
Since January we had decided that we were going to rent a friend’s house for at least a year and stopped looking for anything. The timeframe was perfect; the current renter’s lease was up when we needed to be in it seemed to be kismet. Unfortunately, the current renters didn’t like the idea of leaving and decided to stay in the house. My friend is in a legal battle to get them kicked out. With not knowing how long that would take and the hotel bill eating any savings we had we had to look for somewhere new to live fast. We found a place and have been living in the house for almost a week. Another unfortunate event, all of our household goods are still not here – though in the area, the company couldn’t deliver them until this coming Monday. I really can’t wait to get all of my things.
In many of our errands around town to get items for the house that we don’t have or couldn’t wait for, we noticed that almost down the street (less than 5 miles away) is a new little quilt shop called “The Scrappy Quilter”.
This little shop has been open for just over a year and has the most wonderful ladies (at least the ones I have met so far) working there. They were so friendly and inviting! Once they realized that I was new to the area, and my husband was just about to retire from the military, the tips and suggestions to local restaurants, shops, etc. started to flow!
They have a little class area and I can’t wait to take a class there (there is one on the 30th that I want to take, but I really need to see how my machine and stuff fair before I sign up for it. Also, I have classes that start on the 31st. I am in an 18month associates degree program for Medical Practice Management.
But I am sure you want to see what I bought from my new LQS, right?
I bought a kit that is the above fabric to go with this pattern included:
I also bought the below fabric to work on a quilt for my husband soon
I will see what I have for a black and a black in my stash to go with them.
Boy, my sewing machine can’t get here fast enough!!
