So, this Thursday, my husband dragged me down there while Vanilla and Pumpkin had a class.
First impression...beautiful quilts! Wonderful examples hanging. Gorgeous fabric! Cool patterns!
Cold. Not outside...it was 75 and beautiful at 5pm in Seattle. But, the service was distant. Honestly, I felt like my presence annoyed the clerk.
Once I got over not feeling wanted...I was awed by the Seattle centered patterns. I was drawn to all the Owls...who knew that I would develop an Owl obsession? Also, the native work was amazing. I bought...gulp...patterns. Actual pattens. Here...these are the patterns that I bought.
|This was actually made and hanging in store. So lovely!|
|I saw this image carved in wood and loved it. I thought it would be cool done in...gulp...applique.|
|Look! A dress pattern! I loved it and I have great fabric that I can use to make these for my girls. But....I have never made a dress before. I will have to build up my courage.|
|Aren't these adorable? They are hotpads! Looks like I can do these for Christmas Presents! |
