Whew! I am having so much fun spending time with my family here in Utah that I haven't taken the time to sit down and post.
Although I haven't posted, I have had the chance to visit a few more fun places. On Wednesday afternoon my mom and I found ourselves at a shop that is near and dear to my heart. Nuttals Bernina, in Riverton, Utah. I didn't take pictures, because it isn't as aesthetically pleasing as a lot of the quilt shops, it's not as much of a quilt shop as a fabric shop and machine dealer. Every time I have been there though, they are running some kind of sale or another, and they do carry some of the more contemporary quilt lines (although not a lot.) Why is it near and dear to my heart? It is where I got my OH SO LOVED Bernina Aurora 430 last year. (My husband and I joke that it is one of the most expensive appliances in our house...except that it isn't a joke!) I haven't regretted the purchase once. We visited the store because I wanted to ask a few questions, and I decided that I am/was ready to purchase a walking foot too. I can't wait to try it out. Oh yea, they also had what was left of their Christmas fabric on sale, so I got some yardage to make this tree skirt.
The Quilted Bear. Talk about craft mecca! Seriously, it is just one ginormous craft show that is open all through the year. I love to go there to get fun ideas and usually pick up a thing or two for myself. We had a great time and I definitely got my 'crafty fix' for a while. (at least a day or two!) One of these days I would love to get a booth there and see how we do. What do you think Lynette?
