mug rugs and more......


Mug rugs for a couple friends that don't read this blog...one March birthday and one April birthday. Really like the backing fabric of both also!
DH and I took an anniversary weekend in Marine City, MI at a beautiful Bed and Breakfast named The Heather House...
If you ever get the chance, look them up! Beautifully decorated and our hostess, Barbara, was wonderful. Another couple staying had the same anniversary!
There's a very nice quilt shop in the main shopping district that features a quilters' retreat in a lovely appointed upper floor. Up to 6 quilters can stay and sew to their hearts content! Quilting Dreams is the name.
Joan DeRue is the owner who was nice enough to give us a tour of her shop--upstairs and down!

Her website is http://quilting-dreams.com/ and she specializes in reproduction fabrics.
One of the best parts of Marine City is the St. Clair River and the freighter traffic you can watch float by!!
Have a great week and enjoy some scenery and some sewing!! :-)

A little finish and a little start......

Finished a little Disappearing 9 patch for the baby boy bundle DD and DSIL have started! They're due the 3rd week of August.
The sun was out for a while, so over the picnic table it went.
FMQ'd a few words in one of the borders, ala BQFF, Judy. That was fun!
No tulips here outside--but some lovely ones from BQFF, Barbara. Pop over to her site and enjoy a quilt show Smilebox!! (thanks again, Barb)    Have a great week everyone!!
