I'm back! Oh my goodness am I exhausted! I spent Wednesday - Sunday traveling and attending Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah.  It was awesome!  I'm excited to share my experience and more about my class hopefully this week.  At this point I'm trying to stay awake and get caught up.  Quilt Market is in NINE days, so there are preparations for that too!

The Sewing Summit teachers were asked to donate an item to a silent auction set up for the Sewing Summit scholarship fund. I couldn't help myself, I had to bid on this mini quilt made by my friend Christina of The Sometimes Crafter.  Lucky for me, I won! Can't wait to hang it up!

I finally finished my Pink Vintage Pyrex Mixing Bowl set! I've been searching for the 401 for a while now, and I finally snatched one up for a great deal on Etsy! It arrived while I was in Utah.  I am so happy to have this set finished!
