I am so excited about being able to blog again. I know that I've lost my blogging and podcasting rhythm, but give me a minute, I plan on hitting the ground full speed!
Today, I will keep it short and sweet - because I still have to find my footing.
This past weekend our family traveled to Cary, NC. We made a couple of stops, but my favorite two stops were to Cary Quilting Company and The Pet Pad!
I am on the fence about my trip to this quilt shop. I will reserve my judgement on them for now, but I will return one day and then be able to give a full and fair review. I can say that the customer service was really good. At first, I wasn't sure. I walked all the way thru the store before being greeted. Then I heard this voice, not sure why, but it made me smile. She had happiness flowing all thru her and I can tell that whatever I wanted she was going to make sure I got! She was so genuine and it showed! Her name was Christine. So, kudos to her! I really did watch my purse while shopping at the Cary Quilting Company, I didn't have anything in mind to purchase so I only got a couple of things. I couldn't stay in the shop long because I had my family and 2 month old baby in the car. So for my short quilt shop haul, I got:
Wonder Clips. I have not used these clips before, but I have seen them out on YouTube, Instagram and Blogland and I think that I would love using these little babies!
I saw this sign and instantly thought of my friend, Tissany. She has given me the nick name Diva. So, I just had to get it!!!
I also had to get this one!
That is for my haul, I am so proud of myself!!!
Well, I told you that we went to The Pet Pad and that we had our 2 month old baby in the car. He is the real reason why I couldn't stay long in the quilt shop. Everyone please welcome Benson to our family!
He is a Zuchon (Shih Tzu and Bishon). He is such a cutie and sooo spunky! I look forward to telling you all of the test and trials that he will most definitely put us thru!
I am still working on this baby right here:
I hope to finish it this week. It was half way finished before I realized that I hated just about every stitch. It took approximately 1 - 1 1/2 weeks to remove all of the stitches. This is what happens when you choose the perfect pantograph and then decide to go with another one! I decided to go back to my first choice. I pray that it will go a whole lot smoother!
