Vermont Quilt Festival!!!

Saturday started out with us going out to breakfast with the baby. He did great and we both got to eat our breakfast while it was hot, no crying at all! I think we might be able to work up to eating out for dinner sometime!!! I remembered on the way home that the quilt festival was this weekend in Essex at the fairgrounds (about 30 minutes from us) and I mentioned it to DH. He said, 'go ahead if you want and I'll stay home with Aidan'.... well, don't have to tell me that twice. As I was walking out the door that morning he said, 'see you tonight'! Gotta love a hubby who says things like that.
I had a great time walking through and seeing all the quilts and vendors. I even bumped into a few guild members at the show. Two had won ribbons, my friend Joanna's Mom and our past president of the guild. I did not get pictures of their quilts but they were stunning. Here are a few of the pictures I snapped at the Vermont Quilt Festival.

Can't go to a show without making some purchases.... so I got a FQ bundle of civil war prints, some blueberry fabric for placemats, some needles for hand quilting, quilting thread, and a thimble.

Sunday I 'had' to stop at Joanns before getting groceries to see if there was any fabric I liked for curtains in the living room. This has been an ongoing task for a few months and I can never find anything I like at the various stores in the area. Until, today! I finally found something that I like, so that will be made into some summer valances for living room and possibly my sewing room. I also found a possible fabric for curtains for the den, so will go back next week with the other coupon and pick up some material for that.
