Queens for a day...and a little trip away...

Yesterday I went and did a little shop-hopping with my partner in crime ...aka Nanette.
We started out early at Material Girls where they crowned us Queen for a Day...(along with everyone else there!)...they were WAY BUSY!!!


Then we went to Quilts Etc and lastly Pine Needles before we did lunch.
I did a little bit of damage in the way of a few fat quarter purchases.


And I bought a couple of pair of cutie pie flip flops from my cutie pie niece Sara at Material Girls...and a cute necklace that Nanette and I are modeling above.

Nanette treated me with a really fun vintagey gift....she knows what I love!...thanks nanette:)


Whoooops....let me take it out of the cellophane wrapper so you can see all the goodies.


Fun huh?....I think the 3 ballarina's are me, Nanette and Nadine.......lol!



Now for the little trip away part....I'm packing my bags for a get away with my friends Rae Ann, Nedra and Suzanne ...plus 2 more friends that I havn't even met yet...Judi and Jackie.



Quilting supplies ...plus some embroidery.


I have 5 quilts all cut and ready to go...yes...I said 5! I plan on getting alot done while I'm in the beautiful Star Valley, Wyoming.



Here's a sneak peek at one of the projects....a cutie pinwheely vintagey kind of block.
Sooooo....I am taking a little blog-cation and I promise to catch you up on all of the happenings at the cabin when I get back....TTFN!

Oh that sounds SO fun!! Way to be all prepared (with your 5 quilts already cut!) Have a great time. I love your block and those Material Girls really go all out! That is such a great idea!

I remember those ballerinas. I had them on my birthday cake. It's kinda sad when your childhood is already "vintage". (;0)
Have a wonderful get-away. Sounds like fun.

I just found your blog and love it. I did some of the same shops in the shop hop last weekend too. Weren't they fun. I had a blast anyway. I originally came for the Hexagon flower tutorial and just keep going. (partly cause of the music too. Have a great day.

I loved reading about your adventure with Nanette at Material Girls and the other shops you hit - sounded like so much fun! I love Material Girls - I go in there with a few things in mind and come out with entirely different things! And patterns!! I usually never buy patterns but that store reels me in every time! So happy you get to be in Star Valley!!! It's one of my very favorite places - I want to be buried there - or under the front gates at Disneyland - can't decide which! Have fun and I hope you're getting time to quilt! xo, Nan

Lori, not that you're not busy enough, but we were looking through your patterns to see if you have a 4th of July one. Any plans to design one of those? You're amazing!!!
