Over the week-end, I had the exciting opportunity to meet fabric designer, Tula Pink at the Stash Fabric shop in Walla Walla, WA, which is about an hour north of me. Due to family obligations, I was unable to take the class or to attend her lecture, but was so glad to get a chance to chat with her, and to hang out with other quilters! I'm afraid I only got a few pictures though :(. If you ever get the opportunity to meet her, though, jump at it! I'm so glad I did. She's a very vivacious, fun-loving, and super-creative lady!
I went with a friend of mine, and we had a great time, which, besides the ride over and back, and attending the book signing/party at the fabric shop, also included a very delicious sushi meal afterwards. YUM!!!
I started a purse, using Tula Pink's Parisville line, and Noodlehead's 241 Tote pattern. I was hoping to have it finished by Friday night, but always underestimate how long it takes to make purses. I finally got it finished today! I love it, but have yet to take it out on the streets for a test drive!
My 2 boys are now back from a week at camp, so things are slowly getting back to their old routine. As usual, it's hard to believe that summer is flying by so fast! I hope all of you had a great week-end as well!
