Shop Hopping!

I spent 4th of July weekend with my mom driving down the Oregon coast just the two of us! All the way down to Florence (and a bit past Coos Bay from there). It was the most relaxing, spoiled time I've spent I think ever. I did miss my men a bit when the sun started to go down on Independence Day and no one was lighting anything on fire but, it was so nice to take a break from all the day-to-day stuff and just chill (and sew). Thank you, Mom, for a great time!!
The fun of the Shop Hop is getting a kit to make a quilt block a each shop. Mom doesn't quilt so, she gave me hers. I sewed them all up right away an will have a "free" quilt to show soon! I also bought a lot of fabric. So fun to see the different styles in each shop (The one in Wheeler is my fave).

I now have several more projects to do! I've planned a quilt & a pirate map & a Christmas stocking for myself & a pin cushion with all this great fabric. I love new fabric!

That shop hop idea is so awesome! What a great trip, too. We go down to Coos Bay every year to hit the sand dunes. Gorgeous area!! Sounds like you had a blast, too.

Can't wait to see your quilt!
