Weekend Whirlwind

A whirlwind of a weekend indeed!
I drove up to Beverly, MA to visit my family 
and we always have soooo much fun.
Lot's of laughing and joking and teasing, 
not to mention great food and wonderful drinks! 
Thank you!!

They totally indulged me on Saturday and took me to
Portsmouth, NH, where one of my favorite fabric stores reside.
 It is not a huge, huge store, but it has a wonderful selection of all the fabrics I love.
 Especially Kaffe Fassett.  
 I think they have the best collection of Kaffe's fabrics anywhere.
(I'm not much of an internet shopper, I like to feel it!)
 The girls behind the counter were a riot,
I think they have way too much fun to call this "a job!"
 We walked around after I came down from the euphoria . . . 
And had lunch at the brewery which was fabulous!
Lot's of different beers and great sandwiches.
 I couldn't wait to get back to the house to look at all I had collected . . .
 I even bought a few "non-kaffe" goodies too.
Now to start cutting!!
And look at this little delight!  It is a tiny pin cushion, only about 1 inch
all the way around.  It's filled with sand, so it's hefty for it's size.
I just couldn't pass it up!

Sunday was spent wishing my cousin a happy birthday before I had to head home.
Hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. oh that souds like you had way too much fun - lucky girl!

  2. Can't wait to see some of your new fabric in a project. Nice add-on to a family visit.

  3. Looks like a fun shopping trip! Love your choices - just wondering, what is the tied bundle, with squares in earth tones? Gorgeous!
