My wallet wasn't emptied on fabric this year at Road to California Quilt Show. Space was made available in Kerry's trunk to bring a new sewing machine home. This is the high end Janome "workshop" sewing machine. I think a pretty good deal was had from the show purchase.
The laundry can wait! I set it up for a test drive on Friday. It just hums along producing great stitches. The purchase came with the portable table too! Am I happy? YES!
These were the other items that came home with me. The Bloc-Loc rulers are part of my Christmas goodies from Kerry. The pouch is the perfect size for my collection of Bloc-Loc rulers. I like to keep them all together. It replaces a Ziploc bag with many holes from the strong tips of the rulers. The scissors were BOGO; a steal! Up at the top of the photo is DH's birthday gift. This is a fabric add that will quickly be a fabric used. He's going to love the beer themed lap quilt.

Enjoyed friends company, even one from Maryland! Kourageous
wasn't displayed in the best of locations. It was too far away to see detail and for it to elicit the ooh and aahs that being up close would have done. No ribbon, but positive comments from the judges. Makes me want to work harder the next time. I hope you had an opportunity to enjoy the show too. Already planning on the trip next year and this year's event isn't even over.
Kerry and I took two workshops this year. Two new projects to finish adding to my increasingly list of UFOs. Having multiple projects going at the same time is just not my style, but it is happening. Visit tomorrow to see the starts of these projects!
