I’ve had a slow start to January with my sewing, but I’m getting there! I bought myself this amazing new t-shirt, and I can’t get enough of it. Read more on January Quiltiness…

geeky sprinkles

Yes, I know it’s April. But it occurred to me that there were lots of fun things about last month that I didn’t want to write about as standalone posts. So, why not combine them? Especially since the grim weather is finally starting to disappear, and I can remember all the good times winter and I had without feeling stabby about the snow.

stof dot dress

Stof is a Danish fabric company completely unfamiliar to me until last week. Hannah and I went out to Pennington Quilt Works to spend my birthday coupon, and there were these magnificent dots. Stof’s Twist Style. The shop had more than one colorway, but this is the one Hannah and I both loved (she tried to run off with the bolt). So I bought a yard.

destashing

I’ve been on a monthlong weeding and organizing binge all over the house. My studio especially has gotten a bit of an overhaul, and I’ve pulled a ton of fabric to sell.

cotton + steel

I bought a lot of great fabric this summer after a bit of a dry spell buying new fabrics. I’ve only cut into the Cotton + Steel bundles above, and even then I’ve only used two of the fat quarters. But I can’t wait to play with the rest.

We went back to Lancaster July 1-3, but this time it was three generations of women heading to Kitchen Kettle Village. I do love it there, although after our second stay in the Inn at Kitchen Kettle Village I’m a little grossed out by the infrequently-washed carpets. It was much worse this time, I may have to rethink things for our next visit.

This is what we got ourselves up to.

mommydaughtertrip1

After spending last weekend in DC, Hannah and I dropped Adam off at the train station so he could come back to NYC for work. But I’d decided a couple of months before that it would be really fun for Hannah and me to go away together for a few days during her spring break. A mommy/daughter trip.

So, we (I) decided to drive from Washington to Lancaster county in PA. After a morning running around DC together, we hopped in the car and set off.

steampunkdoodles

I’ve been on a fabric shopping spree lately. With spring’s arrival, inspiration has been everywhere. I’ve been doodling, sketching quilts, pinning color palettes, and craving new fabrics for my stash.

I’ve been busy.

I spent a few cold days hunkered down inside and dealing with all of my scraps. ALL. OF. MY. SCRAPS!

Other posts on this trip: Connecticut, Maine.

After our 3 days in Maine, we spent an afternoon in Portsmouth, NH before heading to Cape Cod for 2 nights.


The main reason we stopped in Portsmouth was because they had a quilt shop. And Portsmouth Fabric Company is a great quilt shop. I scored some Denyse Schmidt, Birch Fabrics, and Cloud9, as well as a great home dec weight hedgehog print from Cosmo.
