Quilt Shop Hop------ Want to Join????

Hey ya'll,

I forgot to mention in my last post that if anyone is living in NC and would like to do some visiting with other quilters please feel free to leave me a comment here!  We will be quilt shop hopping and having some lunch all in the Raleigh area.  My friend, Pam from Mama Sparks World will be joining me.  This will be on June 4th.

Isn't this awesome?!  I saw it at the symposium:)  Everything is exposed and ready to be examined!  Love it.

As for sewing, I have started adding borders onto my blocks for the other side of the double sided commission quilt.  Pinning while watching favorites on Hulu or just enjoying silence is a pleasure.

Chain, chain,chain....piecing on the machine is a quick and instantly satisfying task.  Currently I am sewing border strip, row of blocks, border strip and so on. 

Before my guild meeting a couple weeks ago I went and got my first pedicure for the summer.  I enjoyed every minute of it and now I have pretty toes again! 

My toes match this gerbera daisy I have in my front yard:)

cheerful petals.....

in all colors.

Have a beautiful, sunny day!!

Love the look at the interior of the sewing machine. Too cool.

I cant make the shop hop this year, but I do like going to all the shops anyway! When I get a chance I head out for sure. My favorite at the moment is Loving Stitches even though it is a haul from Morrisville. :)

Aw man! I wish I didnt have to work! Are you coming to Winston area? We have a bunch of shops in our area! Sewingly Yours just down the road has a $5.99 wall with $5 a yard if you finish the bolt!

That is one awesome sewing machine! What a kick. I love getting my toe nails painted in the summer too!

Cool see-through sewing machine.

Love gerbera daisies too! I wish we could grow them as perennials here, but they only last a season because of our harsh winters. Lovely!

I loved that "naked" 780 machine! Glad you got a picture of it. And I totally relate to your pedicure happiness. One of my favorite things about living in the South is that I can get away with bare legs in the summer, even for church, as long as I have pretty sandals and painted toes! :-)

Thanks for visiting me at Cheeky Cognoscenti. Too bad we didn't bump into one another at the Symposium.

Oooo, a pedicure sounds like heaven! It's been at least 3 or 4 years since I've had one (or had my hair highlighted).

Wish I lived closer, I'd love to join you! Do you know that Depeche Mode song "Enjoy the Silence"? My husband usually sings a little of it after the kids go to bed;)
