I love it here!

My first Utah crafty purchase (first of many, I'm sure!) of this trip. I only had a few minutes this morning, but made a quick stop at one of my favorite quilt shops here, The Material Girls in South Jordan, Utah.They were having a little sale there, so I stopped in for a few minutes. The store was chaos, and I'll definitely go back again before I leave Utah, but I did make it out of there with a few fun things...The aqua fabric is for a apron that I want to make for myself when I get back home, the owl fat quarter was just too cute to pass up, and I can't wait to try out the two patterns. Aren't those jackets simply adorable on that middle pattern? There was an example in the store using some adorable Amy Butler material. I think I am finally ready to try to tackle another article of clothing for myself. (The first try was a bust, hence no photos.) I'm sure it will be a challenge, but if it works out, I'll have an adorable jacket to wear!

On a totally separate note. The picture below is of my super cute nephew, Jake. He's 16 and absolutely adorable. When I finally took a closer look at his shirt toay, it TOTALLY cracked me up. I asked him if I could take a picture of him for my blog because it is definitely blog-worthy!! All I can say is...

Yo VIP let's kick it
Ice ice baby, Ice ice bay
All right stop collaborate and listen
Ice is back with my brand new invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
Will it ever stop yo I don't know
Turn off the lights and I'll glow
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle
Dance go rush to the speaker that booms
I'm killing your brain like a poisonous mushroom
Deadly when I play a dope melody
Anything less than the best is a felony
Love it or leave it you better gain weight
You better hit bull's eye the kid don't play
If there was a problem yo I'll solve it
Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it ...


  1. that's hilarious! I need one of those shirts for my husband! LOL (I'm Lynette's sis-in-law in case you were wondering who the heck I am! lol I met you guys when you came to NY for the Hill Cumorah pageant)

  2. Hey my sis-n-law fun! I love that shirt too...awesome! and anybody that quotes the lyrics to Vanilla Ice is automatically my best friend! I'm totally jealous that you have already been to Material Girls...i love that place! i can't wait to see all your goodies and patterns...i already love that jacket and bag pattern!

  3. I love Material Girls! Such lovely fabric. We made a cute bag for church out of that same owl material. Love it!
