Good Afternoon Internet Friends!
Woke up to snow here in Edmonton this morning. YAY (not).
After breakfast though I went to the post office to pick up a package that I got the delivery notice for yesterday. I was pretty sure I knew what it was so was super eager to get it!
This summer when we were in the Maritimes I had hoped to find, and get to some awesome quilt shops. I had this idea that since we have so many quilt shops in Alberta that surely there must be a bzillion awesome quilt shops out east.
Sadly, I did not find very many, and the one I really wanted to go to we didn't have time to get to. My husband always tells stories about going to visit his grandmother "in the valley" (which I think is a local perception for something, as can't say I have visualized it) and playing under the quilt frames at her house. After this trip I think I was "set up" to believe in the quilting down east ; )
Anyways,.... I "liked" the Facebook page of the quilt shop I wanted to go when we got home and have been watching all of the wonderful things that are in stock.
Last week, I decided that since I could not actually take a road trip to the small independent merchant of A Needle Pulling Thread (such a cute name), in the metropolis of Digby (another fun word), I would place an online order! Darlene there was most helpful, and as such here are my purchases:
I just realized that the Nova Scotia Tartan Fabric is not included in the picture because I have already taken it to nether regions of the house to audition for quilts it could be backing!
I love supporting small shops because it makes me feel good about my purchases, and on top of that I got a hand written note (which I love), candy (another thing I love), and an extra little kit (that I love). I think I just might try to get it done for next weekend.
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
