It’s Super Bowl Sunday but we won’t be watching the game today. My husband is a Green Bay Packers fan, but doesn’t watch the games because he’s superstitious – he thinks they’ll lose if he watches them! We don’t ‘do’ Super Bowl Parties – we tend to stay close to home and do our own thing for the game.
We had an opportunity to use Mother-In-Law’s timeshare this week in the Wisconsin Dells, and had a nice little 3-day getaway that we really needed. We took the kids out of school for a couple of days and spent some quality time together and had a really good time. I passed up heading to a quilt shop 20 or so miles from the resort we were staying at – I napped instead!
On the way home, we stopped at a favorite shop – Olive Juice Quilts – and I picked up a couple of things. ‘Nautical Map’ from Sarah Jane’s ‘Out to Sea’ line. I don’t know exactly what I’ll do with it. I bought a kit for The Pink One with ‘Out to Sea’ fabrics the last time I stopped at Olive Juice, but this print wasn’t in it. I may incorporate it into the quilt, I may make a pillow, I may not do anything with it at all….who knows?
I also purchased ‘Glow Friends’ from Sarah Jane’s ‘Wee Wander’ collection today. It will be the binding on another quilt for The Pink One.
Silly me, I let The Pink One come into the shop with me, and she decided that we needed to shop for fabric for Parker’s quilt. (Parker is a neighbor friend.) I kept telling her that I didn’t know that we were making a quilt for Parker, but she didn’t care…she kept wanting to pick out fabrics, so I relented and let her pick out two fat quarters. I hate to admit it, but I think she has as much of an ‘eye’ for what goes together as I do!
Olive Juice was having a big sale today, but I managed to only buy a few things. They were offering 10 free FQs with the purchase of 20 but I just couldn’t bring myself to spend the time to pick out 30 FQs! Sometimes you just gotta pass on a sale!
Linking up with Molli today!
