I've been away for a week, staying at my sister's and doing spring cleaning and yard work at my mother's house before she comes back from her "winter quarters." We accomplished quite a bit, and had a good time doing it. Now if someone would do the same here-- Anyway, I've been catching up on people's blogs, and after I do some cleaning, I will hit the sewing machine. It's definitely calling me, and I have a list of things that need to be done. Why is that? I seem to have a tendency to stress out, even about something that is supposed to be fun.

One bit of quilty news: I discovered a shop called Corner Quilt Fabrics. It's in an outlet mall in Warrenton, Missouri, where no one would find it unless they knew it was there. I just happened to stop for the Liz Claiborne outlet and enjoyed a short browse in this lovely little shop. Anyone who has the misfortune to drive Interstate 70 between St. Louis and Columbia, Missouri, might want to stop. It's a good place for a break, just before or after the St. Louis traffic.

Welcome Home!

When you figure out how what this self-creating stress habit is all about you let me know. I do that. Quilting is supposed to be fun. Karen makes is a pressure/stress thing. Sheesh.

What a neat little trip you had finding this shop. Didn't you feel like that was a little "date" with yourself? A little treat?

Your Grass is so well done. Simple and yet the quilting adds the extra bit of pattern interest.
Their is a lovely orchid quilt in the new Quilter's Newsletter Mag that made me think of you.
