I'm Home

Home again...it's always great to get home, but I sure do miss my little man. I've always had a great time visiting with the kids and spending time with Hampton, but this time was beyond belief. Since the kids were busy packing I got him to myself a lot. I loved every second of it. We went for great long walks in the city and saw wonderful, wonderful things. He is such a joy. Happy 99% of the time and just laughs so loud that you can't help but laugh.

Here are some pictures of the Quilt Merchant in Winfield, IL...what a fantastic shop...if you are in the area, or even if you have to drive a while to get there it is SO worth the trip. I can't even begin to tell you what a great shop this is. If you love reproduction fabrics, this is the shop for you. I ended up not being there as long as I would have liked, but the kids graciously took me there and waited for me. I think Josh was afraid that I'd take the wrong train. But you know even with limited time, I had a great time. Docia (the owner) and her daughter-in-law, Beth were just delightful...I felt like I had known them for years. Aren't quilters just the BEST?!
 

 

 



I'll post the others later this evening...hmmmmmmm, 2 posts from me in one day :-)

Oh Ethel,
I see at least three that I would love to have kits for. Did they have kits for alot of their quilts? I may have to be calling them up when I get home. Loved that Christmas irish chain with the border fabric. LOVE IT. Also love the one you bought. Can't wait to see more.

What an incredibly beautiful shop! I love everything in there! I especially want the bear on the table holding a box. He's just too cute!
Can't wait to see your quilt kit put together!
I totally understand the missing of the grandbaby, too!

Sounds like a grandma's dream visit. You'll have to persuade them to take a trip soon and leave you in charge of Hampton. I love it best when I have my angels all to myself. (DGD tells me she prefers to come to my house, than have me come to hers. This translates: she loves to have my undivided attention, which she certainly gets when it's just the two of us.)

BTW, who's the War Eagle in your family? I have one too--DD#1. Love that school!
