Saturday starts with a few hours of sewing. When stomaches start grumbling, we head to town for the Saturday lunch ritual - JoJo's soft pretzel (dipped in butter).
We have two great spots for fabrics - Lolly's in the Old Davis Hotel and Yoder's (a variety store with a sizable fabric department). The first order of shopping business was border fabric.
We've all spent alot of time sifting thru the fat quarter boat. The boat is downstairs in A Little Bit of Lolly's where all bolt yardage is $6 per yard.
Walking back we stop at Yoder's for more stash enhancement. This year I added to my French General stash - a Christmas present from a dear friend - and a putty grey solid for the center of an Amish Ocean Waves I'm working on.
The last stop is the Antique Mall. Everybody found a treasure to take home. I picked up four matching red transferware lunch plates.
Back to the Farmstead for sewing. When we walked into the sewing room, Pat had already added her antique mall purchase to the design wall just to see if we'd notice. Well, yeah!
Pat had this string quilt out to do some quilting - I love this one! She pulled this together from the leftover squaring-up sections from string blocks.
Susan finished this 4 block applique just as the buzzer sounded for Sunday packing. She was so jazzed to get this done - started about 2000!
