I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season this year, no matter what you celebrate! We got back on the road on the 28th, and spent our new years in Casper, WY. Didn’t do anything special really, but I did try deep-fried Oreos a couple hours before the new year…pretty great last meal of 2014, if I do say so maself :)
Before we stopped for the night on the 31st, I was lucky enough to find a quilt store in Montana, just a couple blocks from our delivery. That was pretty cool, it usually doesn’t work out that well. That shop was Thimbelina’s, in Livingston, MT:
So I got my MT fabric, which I thought was pretty fitting; we dealt with -27 degree weather in Montana, so I figured the snowy trees were perfect:
I also got this adorable dog fabric that I couldn’t say no to. What can I say, I love dogs!
On another note, I gave away all of my big quilts for Christmas, finally, which was awesome. One was for my parents-in-law, one was for my grandparents-in-law, and one was for my dad. There was also a double wedding ring quilt that I made with my mom, which was presented to my engaged cousin at her rehearsal dinner thing on the 26th, a day before she got married! That was a wonderful little wedding, and I absolutely loved her dress too.
So now I’m at that point where I sort of don’t know what to do with my life…I’m still finishing a cross stitch that was started 15 years ago by my mom that never got finished, but that’s all I’m doing right now. I’m still planning on the princess paper pieced quilt, but I haven’t started any of that yet. More news on that to come, hopefully I’ll get better at this whole blogging thing =P
Have a wonderful 2015 all, talk to you soon!
Also, I decided to do this new thing so I can keep better track of where I’ve been:
