A Day of Fun and Cuteness

Carol, Quink and I had a wonderful "girls' day out" yesterday. Our first stop was The Little Wool Shoppe in Loveland, Colorado. I bought a pattern for a small table mat and a piece of woven wool to use as the base. I think it will look nice on the marble top table in our great room.

Our next stop was The Wool Basket in Windsor where we were treated to a world of cuteness. I bought a small bag of wool scraps to use in making the table mat. I also bought several cuts of a new Moda fabric I've fallen in love with called "La Petite Ecole." It's the same fabric used in the "Night Before Christmas" block of the month quilt I'm making.

Our third stop was Quilter's Stash, also in Windsor. They carry a large selection of batiks and, although I need batiks for a wall quilt I'm planning, I didn't buy any because they have a sale coming up in a couple of weeks. I have several projects in the works so I won't start on the batik quilt for awhile anyway.

We had lunch at the Okole Maluna Hawaiian Grill in Windsor, a new restaurant for the three of us. Our meals were delicious but the piece de resistance was the slice of chocolate haupia pie. I'm on the hunt for a recipe to try at home.

Today I'm busy washing and pressing the fabirc and working on some of my projects in progress. We had several inches of snow overnight and it's melting quickly today. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the gorgeous views.
