ok... and some Make Do help needed...

I know I wasn't going to post today...see this PS.. BUT.... and you know everyone has a BUT...

I was a featured blogger over at In Stitches, you know the The Quilt Shoppe blog... They are running their Bingo game right now and will feature all the blogs during the game. Which is a good thing, cause I'm sure not good at Bingo.. I am one of eight being featured today... Thanks In Stitches...

So I took off with some friends yesterday to Hannibal.. We did a little shopping, a little eating, and a little budget planning for the guilds coming year... It all went really well.

This quilt shop puts little 20 fq bundles together and sells them cheap..so I found this one that said "take me home!!".. so I did...


And then I had to add some Civil War repro's to the stash for my Love Letters quilt. These are the ones I could tolerate bringing home with me. I am NOT a cw fan, but hubby is and it's his quilt and really it's his money, so whatever...

And then the heavens opened up and I found another charm pack of Kona Brights... Now I have two... cause you know 1 charm pack really doesn't do anyone any good. you know? I ruffled them and took a quick pick. Aren't they pretty? i LOVE them...



So then after spending the ENTIRE day out, I turned around and drove down to my Civil War Love Letters quilt club.... One lady has already completed her quilt top and we got to oh and ah over it... She says she would like to do a similar one and someone talked about a quilt called Make Do...apparently it is like the civil war quilts but follows the woman of the wagon trains traveling from the East to the West. I would love to know what the book is called, if anyone here has ever heard of it. I googled and checked Amazon and can't find anything....

edit-I called the shop that lady talked about and apparently the Make Do is a "made-up". There is no book...the quilt shop put it together and pulled projects from other books and is doing it as a club. Since they are more than 100 miles from me, guess i can't join...

Then home... and very tired...but not as tired as hubby who spent ALL afternoon at the airport waiting for his flight to take off to Detroit and by 7pm he was changing his flight to early this morning at which time his flight was an hour late... ah Delta...get it together..please?
