While I was there, I took a half-day class from Jenny Lyon, whose blog I've been enjoying. The class was very good, and Jenny herself is really upbeat and encouraging. The class was well worth attending. :)
My quilting buddy Phyl and I roomed together, ogled the quilts, and drooled in the vendors' booths. What did I buy, you ask? The first thing was Philippa Naylor's new book, Appliqué Mastery. Philippa is a phenomenal teacher, but she wasn't offering anything I hadn't already taken during the time I was there. The book, though, will serve to remind me of things I'd had in her appliqué class, as well as things I hadn't known.
l'Atelier d'Isabelle, where I bought a wool felt kit to make an adorable flower pin cushion. Isn't it cute? I also found some buttons that I may be able to use on a sweater I'm making. In other places I found some threads I needed, refill chalks for my Bohin pencils, and a couple of rulers designed for use in free-motion work on domestic machines. Fun!
Now to catch up on the laundry! ;)
