Back in the Saddle Again.....

Okay, if your are young...or not a fan of American Western movies...you might not get the title...which is a part to a cowboy song. But, I'm back home again. The trip to Huntsville was so very much fun for me! Kim was a wonderful hostess and has the coolest family! The ladies at the Madison guild were very gracious and I really enjoyed sharing my crazy journey with them on Thursday night. The gals that signed up for the crazy quilt class on Saturday just were a hoot! I enjoyed the class even more than them I think! We had a wonderful time stitching and laughing....at and with each other!
I also did my part to help the local economy...and found some treasures!
 
My Jingle applique quilt was in need of some additional red, yellow, and green...so I'm thinking these will be just great!
 
There is a plan for a Sunbonnet Sue mini-quilt...so I needed some 30's fabrics to create that.
 



My ideas for the applique medallion pattern include using batiks for the flowers...and I really scored with these colors!
 
Lastly, I found some beads for hatpins and even a couple that will make great cabochons! Plus, some needles, glue pen, and other treasures! It's nice to have a chance to shop and actually touch the fabric...instead of buying on-line. 
 
Oh wait, I almost forgot...these lucious fibers and threads! I'm just going to love working with these on my crazy quilt projects!
 
Thanks again Kim and all the ladies of Madison/Huntsville for such a wonderful visit!
