Tricks and Treats

All it took was a "tempting" e-mail from Melisa, aka The Evil Temprest, to lure me to Sweet Home yesterday. I e-mailed Brenda, aka The Quilting Cowgirl and we made plans to meet at SH. Melisa had Halloween decorations, homemade baked goods, coffee, "treats" with coupons, and new fabric lines. This is my idea of a perfect Halloween celebration. See Melisa's blog entry entitled "The Witch is In" for great phots of the shop.

I wasn't the only "Thimble" to be lured into Melisa's den of temptation. Sarah, Brenda, me and Ann display some of our "treats" or treasures from the day.

All the blogland talk about the new line of fabric from Moda's French General, Rouenneries, had me lusting for my own stash. I found a layer cake and purchased yardage for borders and backing for a project in the second book from Pam and Nicky Lintott (new book due out November 14th according to Earlier in the day there were other bolts of Rouenneries, but we learned that Kristie had already purchased the rest of one bolt!

This is the quilt I hope to begin soon with the Rouennerries fabric. Yippee!

Thanks, Melisa. Kris and Mike for a wonderful time!

I am so glad you "treated" yourself to a visit, Becky! It has been far too long! And I can't remember when I've enjoyed a better day at Sweet Home - so much fun!

I just missed you I guess-I caught a glimpse of Brenda in the parking lot as I drove in. I picked up some "renuzit" as well. No idea what I will do with it! Maybe I will wait for the new book
