Me Time ~ May 3

A Work Day

We were all at the big show
in Paducah last week and now
it's time to come back to reality.
And reality generally means work.
So Me Time this week was spent
putting the shop back together.

I think Dawn took about
half the shop with her and now that
 has to be put back in place.

I thought you might like to see
some of the things people brought
home from Paducah.  These
beautiful wool pincushions are now
available at The Quilt Shoppe.

So are these cute pins.

And now for the shopping...
Fabric rolls of shirtings and
pinks & browns Civil War fabrics.

More Civil War era reproductions.

Charm packs, cording & pearl cotton.

And some gorgeous wools.

Hopefully we will get to work
with some of our purchases now
that we are home.


  1. Beautiful fabrics, I like them all!!! Happy sewing!!!

  2. Love those wonderful pincushions!!!

  3. The pincushions are so fun! I wonder how they're made. And I love the Civil War fabrics and shirtings.
