They don't look that great in the photo, but they really look good together. I can't wait to get started on it.

One of my favorite aprons was the one above that had a looked like a face. I never knew there were so many different kinds of aprons. If for any reason you are ever in North Mississippi, I would highly recommend a visit to the apron museum. All in all in was a good trip. I managed to see relatives that I rarely ever see. I was able to spend time with cousins, and their kids. I had not seen some of them in over a year, it is hard to believe how quickly they are growing. It makes me wish I could spend more time with them.
Now that I am home, I realize that school will be starting back all too soon. I have so many projects that I had planned on completing this summer, that still aren't complete. I guess that means that I am going to be very, very busy in the next few weeks.

They always have some great samples made up!!
Our second stop was Intown Quilters, unfortunately I forgot to take my camera in with me. I did find fabric for a skirt, actually two different pieces. I managed to be a good girl and only buy those two pieces.
On Monday, Kristie, Becky, Pat and I went on our own mini shop-hop. It was a great time. Our first stop was A Scarlet Thread, that store is awesome. It is so big and they have so much fabric. I was bad and bought a jacket pattern, plus the fabric for it, and a skirt pattern. (Yes, quilt shops sell clothing patterns). I also saw Kristie with a new glue pen, and I decided that I needed one. It is the new Sewline Glue Pen. I am so glad that I bought it. I have already used it to prep the next block for my Carrie Hall Sampler. It works great. It is much better than any other method I have used for my applique. I am definitely sold on it. Now I will just have to find the refills for it. More our our mini shop hop later.
