Birthday Friends

I don't need to go into much detail for the latest birthday quilt the Amazing Quilt Babes completed this last Saturday. (For those of you who are new to my blog, search "birthday quilt" on this blog page, and you can read about how this is done.) I was the lucky girl who drew January for my stitch birthday, and I just couldn't decide what I want them to do. I finally hit on the fact that I have a tub of finished blocks that they could put together for me. So, it is yet ANOTHER Everything But the Kitchen Sink. I had most of the stars completed by the time they arrived at 9:00 AM, and the top (less the borders) was complete by about 2:00 PM.

Because we were such good girls, we decided a little adventure was in order. A new shop has opened in Louisburg, KS called the Needle Nest. As luck would have it, it is only 13 miles from my house. So off we went! It is a lovely little shop, in an 1850's house. They don't have a ton of fabric, but what they have is luscious. About half of the shop is yarn, and they have a great little detached building all decorated up for classes. I liked the people there so much, I went back again yesterday, and signed up for a knitting class in March. As if I need another project!

I still love those Kitchen Sink quilts! It is wonderful! And what fun the new shop sounds like! I can't wait for Friday - I'm taking the day off work and my friend and I are quilt shop hopping!
