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 ...
my new old quilt
