A few things . . . .

Where have I been you ask?
Well, honestly, I have been cheating on you with Instagram.
But more on that later.

Today I had the most fun!  I got to visit Christie in her new store,
We haven't had a good quilt shop in lower Fairfield County in a while.
I usually have to drive to Ridgefield or Danbury.
Or go into the city, which I love!
But now . . . I can get into lots of trouble locally!

Located on Main Street in Norwalk,
it's very east to find.

She has lots of fun fabrics and pre-cuts to chose from.

Batiks and solids.

Her work area is nice and spacious!
Christie is very welcoming and full of energy!
She took my coat so I could shop and not be hot.
Very smart cookie, because I shopped alot then!

There is plenty of space for classes and working in groups.
Christie is ready to set up any classes you may want,
and groups may set up a time to sew together.

Her husband made fabulous tables that can be arranged into sewing
areas, and he treated the tables so you can iron right on them!

Here is Christie and me!

Here is my loot for the day!
Ten yards of fabric, some pre-cuts and a new spray adhesive to try.
Can't wait to dive in!

Now as to my infidelity.
I apologize.
I have been having too much fun on instagram.

I'm more of a picture girl than a wordy girl,
so it really appeals to me.

And well, it's instant!  Hehe.
What's not to love?

I'll try to be more present here.
But . . . if I'm missing.
You know where to find me.
This week.
