There and back again ..... a hobbit's quilt

One of my favorite places to find online free paper pieced patterns is Fandom in Stitches   where you can find patterns for Harry Potter, Twilight, True Blood and more. They have started a new project though a block of the month for the Hobbit called There and Back Again . While I messed up the first block a little bit and I think I bit off more than I can chew with the second block I am proud to say the second block is done! All 120+ pieces. (in a 7 inch block!)

Craft Fair

This past weekend I went to visit a friend in Maine. It was a wonderful trip getting to see another quilty friend. The purpose of the trip was a local middle school craft fair where we shared a booth. Both of us were worried about not having enough materials to sell so we ended up with WAY more than we could possibly fit onto our table. We both sold stuff and came out ahead so it was a success.
 This is Missy setting up our booth at the craft fair. Lots of goodies to sell! 

 We also took my son to the ocean for the first time while we were there. At first he was afraid of the waves but once he realized that there were shells to collect there was NO stopping him! It was a great weekend!
