Home again

It has been a busy few weeks and I am home and ready to get back to stitching. I was at a family reunion hosted by my brother in law and sister in law. Since my SIL is also a quilter we were able to get a bit of quilt store shopping done before the cooking began. I was so excited to go to Happiness is Quilting to get some Dutch Chintz for my LE quilt.

They are one of the few stores in the US that carries this fabric and theyhad a great selection.

As a little hostess gift I made my SIL this little pin cushion/ thread catcher.

And finally we celebrated the 60th anniversay of our parents in law with this quilt that we worked on together across the miles.

But now I am looking forward to pulling all my fabrics together for LE and starting a new project.

Happy stitching!

I am sure your parents-in-law loved their special quilt - it is gorgeous. It sounds like you had a nice time away - great that your sil is a quilter too - the little gift you made her is lovely.

I really like that you and your SIL worked on that quilt together, it looks beautiful!! I hope you found lots of beautiful Dutch chintzes.
