Seattle One

No hand dyes with me, these are two projects that have been WIP for a long time. One is for a friends friendship quilt. I got it pieced before I broke my arm and she cut out the appliqué for me so I could prep it with starch and now I can do the stitching.

We went to Pike's Market and walked all over the place, getting veggies and fruits for snacks. We also found a really cool Mexican store and bought Tom and Bryce T-shirts, and I bought hand woven cotton blankets for the boys for Christmas. They were like $20 each. Also found a tea shop and most importantly the quilt store. I bought several fabrics and patterns that have not gotten to Anchorage yet.

Black on White Eiffel Towers, street map of Paris, and travel stickers of Paris prints. The Greece one has things like the Colloseum and such. I am thinking a fun lap quilt and will make two and give one to the friend who traveled to Europe with us when we went with People to People as leaders. They are shipping it all home for me.

Tomorrow we are going back to Macy's to shop for feminine garnets, and Victoria Secret for yoga pants. They do not carry the ones I like on line, they are only
