Spring Break Week

Hubs is home this week. We originally talked about doing a short, maybe 3 day trip, but he opted for a stay-cation. That is fine with me, because I’ll put my time into sewing!

Chopsticks is moving along. I like it so much better with the added orange fabrics.

I still have a way to go to complete this top.

Here’s another idea, how about shopping during my stay-cation!? A new quilt shop opened just 30 minutes from me. The Red Barn Quiltery, and they are holding a Grand Opening this week.

20% off everything! How’s that for celebrating!? What a great way to hold a Grand Opening! I bought thread, needles, and pins. Photo from shop’s site.

Plus I might have bought a few things at a shop hop last week …

25% off rulers and 50% off the rotary cutter!

Now back to regularly planned sewing!

I hope your are all having a grand week of stitching!

How did I do on last week’s To-Do List:

  1. Catch up on Angela Walters’ FMQ Challenge Quilt Along – Yes? No? At least I’m working on it!
  2. Piecing Chopsticks top – still working on that too!

To-Do List for this week:

  1. Finish up Chopsticks top.
  2. Practice FMQ!
  3. I love a spray basting wall for larger quilts

    Everything looks rosy for sure. Those rulers are wonderful, and a new shop close by, the best treasure of all.

    I am ALL for staycations! Brad and I were planning on heading to OR next weekend for the kids’ spring break, but the weather is not looking good. I told him I was fine with staying home, so it looks like a staycation is in my future too! Now, if only a quilt shop opened near me so I could go shop…LOL!!! Sounds like an awesome grand opening, and yay for 20% off!

    I so love a good sale – and so does my husband as he knows it will pay off in the end! Your quilt is making great progress – love the added orange!
