Back Home

After a week on the road, I am glad to be home.  I drove the stretch of  I-15 between Cedar City and Beaver everyday this week except Wednesday, and I've seen enough of it.

However, there is one really good reason for any quilter to go to St. George.  This place!!


Nice building, it blends into the rocky cliffs and bluffs around St. George.  But inside is a veritable candy store of thread and other goodies!  This is the international headquarters for Superior Thread, and they let you come in and shop in their warehouse!!  So of course I had to hit that before I headed back north.  I came home with--

I got metallic thread, So Fine (to try it for piecing), Brytes, and Highlights.  I also got a new rotary cutter, a bobbin holder, titanium needles, Transdoodle-- it was hard to choose!
I should be downstairs putting the finishing touches on my Interpret This! piece.  I actually did a bit of work on it in St. George, but it has a tiny bit of quilting left to do.  I am not a night person, and I'm tired after driving 250 miles home.  And, I'm beginning to think I am coming down with something.  So, I am going to go to bed with my Machine Quilting Unlimited magazine, take some Nyquil, and pray I can function well enough tomorrow morning to get it done. Nothing like cutting it close!

In the meantime, head over to the Interpret This! blog and enjoy the quilts that have been posted so far.  They are all wonderful!!

Nice goodies! We are missing you so I hope you feel well enough to finish and post.

ooo....lucky you to shop at Superior's headquarters. I buy their threads online.

I look forward to seeing your reveal, as well as your reaction to those already done, on "Interpret This".

I second the comments above! You've had a hard week, and I hope you feel better.

I look forward to the Superior Threads booth at the Chicago quilt festival. We've got good fabric here, but no one carries any interesting thread.

Glad you are back home safe and sound. What a great haul you got at Superior Threads. That color tool is going to be fun for you. I take mine to the quilt shop a lot and it is very useful.
