Design Wall and Etc...........

Saturday, past, 6 of my quilting buddies and I hopped into my van and drove to Baton Rouge.  A road trip..... That means shopping and eating.  We stopped at Fabric Crazy.  We had a great time.  They have a lovely shop and I could not resist the batiks.  I bought way more than I thought I was buying.  I did buy several pieces that were three yards or more.  I hate it when I go to make a quilt and find this lovely fabric in my stash but there is not enough of it.  It is a problem since names and manufacturers are not on the edge of the fabric.

Look at this terrific little sign I found in the shop.  I could not resist.  And it is so true.

When we left Fabric Crazy we drove to Lafayette.  We went to The Borne Quilter.  Again more batiks but since I had over done it at Fabric Crazy and kept myself under control and did not buy much.  When we left there we went to Zea's.  Zea's is an outstanding restaurant.  If you like shrimp, they have a dish that is Asian something or other.  It is wonderful.  I am really not much of a shrimp person, but I could eat this everyday. 

From Zea's we drove to Raine.  Raine has a Dairy Queen.  Lake Charles does not.  So although we were all stuffed we had to have a Dairy Queen fix.  I don't know where I put that thing, but it was goooood.

In my previous post is a picture of my last quilt.  This is a picture of the block for the next quilt.  I designed it a couple of weeks ago.  Some of the fabric I am putting in the quilt is fabric that I bought on Saturday.  It is time consuming to make this block but thankfully I only have 35 more to go.  The flower at the top is purple.  The others are going to be yellow, pink, teal and the purple. 

The weather here is gorgeous, 71 degrees.  We have had several days of 70 + degree weather.  I do know that it will not last, but spring comes early.  It would be nice to have a few more weeks of winter.  Once spring arrives summer is not far behind.  And summers are not fun in the deep south. 

Hope all is well on your end.............
