While in Maryland

While I was in Maryland, I did finish the binding on the two quilts I took to do; the pinwheel and Home Pride. Mia loves a soft quilt to lay on.

I went to Material Girls Quilt Shop. You need to bring the big wallet with you here. They have every new fabric there is and it is a big shop. I bought a couple of fat quarters to do a purse with - when I find the pattern and handles and a 1/2 yd of flannel that goes with the flannel I bought at Betty's sale.

On Sunday I went out with my cousin, Christina, to the Savage Mill where there is an assortment of shops.  We went to the antique shops, art furniture, Christmas shop, stamp shop, and the quilt store.
I found this pattern I absolutely fell in love with. It is a yoyo gingerbread house. There was also a haunted house which I really liked but at $10 a pattern I said only one. The snowmen, reindeer, candies, snowflakes and trees are yoyos.

This is my Aunt Sharon, mom's sister. I was asked by Grandma to give her this painting she did since she could not come up for a visit. It is of Aunt Sharon on a Zip Line on her cruise "Having fun"! She was so surprised and loved it. 
She also dropped off these quilting and crocheting books for me to have since she does not do much crafty stuff anymore.

Saturday we took Eric back to UB and he has started his classes. Madi is set with schedules and dance. She had her senior pictures taken yesterday.  And, I started my 369 quilt with 15/24 blocks complete.

I can't wait to see it all together.

Maybe things will slow down a bit..... ya right.



  1. Sounds like a good trip and really like those FQs, can't wait to see the purse you're going to make with them.

  2. Love the gingerbread pattern -will have to look at that more closely! Missed ya!

  3. I'm glad you had a great time. I missed you.

    What great purchases.

  4. Love that pattern! It's very cute! What size does it make? Hmmm.... I think I am going to have to look for the Haunted House one!

    And woo hoo on the stack of books! Awesome!!!
