A Fresh Start


After a nice long break of twenty-two days my daughter is back at her university. She did very well with her classes last semester, I'm so proud of her! We had a great time just hanging out together. I was missing her something fierce yesterday so...

what would a quilter do? I headed on over to a quilt store. I am lucky enough to have five in about a twenty mile radius. The one yesterday just recently moved to much larger location and doubled their stock. I have been really good about my purchases and didn't buy a whole lot yesterday.

A few patterns mostly from one of my favorite designers Miss Rosie's Quilt Company.

And a few lights I am running low on, two charm packs and some extra yardage from the Recipe for Friendship Collection by Mary Engelbreit. This collection is so bright and cheery, just what I needed!

Sorry to hear your daughter is back at school. It is fun when they are around. I have to say that Quilt Shop looks like a gem. I can't believe you have 5 in that small of an area, fantastic. I love the fabrics and patterns you chose.

That certainly sounds like a great way to cheer yourself up. You should have lots of fun with what you bought.

Привет!

Translation, please, oh Russian speaking daughter of mine!

"Привет" in Latin characters would be "Privet," which is the informal form for hello.
