I am the proud new owner of a Next Generation Quilt Frame!!! I went to Sioux Falls on Friday with my parents to pick it up. We were on our way to a family reunion and made a side trip to pick it up. We stopped in Chamberlain at the Quilt Shop there and found some fun new projects. Then it was on to SF where we got the frame at Heirloom Creations and several fabrics on clearance and some new masterpiece thread colors. We went to Mills End and found some fabric for baby items. Then we headed to Brandon and stopped at the shop there. She has all the Lazy Girl patterns so mom and I each got a new one we didn't have. Then we took the county roads to Dell Rapids. We visited the quilt shop there too. It was awesome and they had the best selection of fabrics and new ideas we had seen. I had been there about 5 years ago and remember the owner was a student of my moms back in the day. Well she recognized my mom and called her by her maiden name! She thought it was so cool that her old home economics teacher was there. We found lots of fun projects there. One involved a 60 degree triangle ruler and it was so cool. Then we headed back to SF and went to Joann's ( We don't have one close). Then it was back to Mitchell to meet my hubby and little bro for the family reunion. Sat. we did some errands, including mom and I stopping at quilt shop in Mitchell. They were having crazy days and I got a bunch more fabric and some stencils to use. We went to the family reunion and then spent the evening at the motel. I helped my great aunt with her magic box and downloaded some embroidery designs for her.
Sunday we headed home, but stopped at the boat races on the Missouri River and got some fishing in. I got a nice burn on my legs and arms. We made it home about 5, but were completely exhausted. Paul helped me for an hour and we got the leg pieces together on the frame. Then we were done for the night. Tonight we worked on Thank yous and we put an hour in on putting the frame together. We have the base put together and standing now.
I spent some time Thurs. night putting a label on Molly's quilt, clothesline on Fri, Sat, and Sunday and did some more frog stitching on Sat. & Sun. I'm behind again, but I haven't been home since Wed., so now I'll have to get busy to catch up. Today I only got an hour in while supper was being fixed.
