Life's Little Routines Keep Us Going!

It's really hard getting back into the routine of your life.  I seem to be having a difficult time getting motivated to do much of anything.  There is so much on my list  I don't  know where to start.

I did take a nice break last Thursday to go to the Georgia Quilt Show
with my friend Judy.
We had such a nice time and managed to find a couple of places
to spend some money.


I found a book "Country Quilts" by Jan Patak in Auntie Ju's booth.  
It's a great book and there are a couple of things I actually plan to make in it.

One of the main reasons I wanted to go was to visit the Primitive Gatherings booth.  I have become very attracted to all the wool in quilts now and Lisa Bongean has some great ways to use wool.  
Her book "Nine Patch Gatherings" has a clever way to make little nine patches in it and I had to try to control my urge to buy her little squares of fabric.
After all I do have a GO cutter.
I also found a new thread called Omni by Superior to try in my longarm.
It was a fun day!


The binding on the Black and White BOM quilt from 2010 is finally finished.
Several members of the little quilting group I belong to did this together. 
I can't believe it's almost been two years...

Happy Stitching,
Nancy

Love your finds at the show. Is Omni thread just a heavier version of SoFine? Both are poly. Give us a report when you use it.
