Returning to Blogland

Well I'm back to blogging and my usual routine. My parents were visiting last week so I got behind in blogging and emailing and responding to comments and all that. They left on Saturday and went from pretty, flowering Spring here in the ATL to preparing for snow in Michigan. We had a great time this past week and I am so glad they could come and visit.

It will take me a couple of posts to catch up on all the fun we had last week so let's jump back to last weekend and the Atlanta Shop Hop. I hope everyone visited Becky's blog to see her great photos.

Becky was so kind to invite me and my mom to shop hop with her and drive in the rainy weather. Thank you again Becky!!!! The first shop we went to was of course Sweet Home Quilt Co. (aka Bad Melisa's). I found this super cute bundle of Bunny Hill's Chelsea Manor

How can anyone resist this cuteness? Do I know what I'm going to use it for? No not really. The next shop was clear across the other side of town to Little Quilts. Now I just went to Little Quilts earlier in the month but somehow I found some goodies I had overlooked earlier.
A little bundle of Moda's Beach House and a little bundle of new Jo Morton shirtings and a charm pack of some really weird-colored Civil War fabrics.
The next stop was Tiny Stitches in Marietta.
I found some great sale fabrics They are more purple than blue (I couldn't get the color corrected right) and I'm going to use them to make pillow cases.
I also found some great new Fig Tree fabrics for not one but TWO Fig Tree jelly rolls I have hanging out and waiting for a project.
Well those are all my goodies from Shop Hop. Tomorrow's post is pie and applique!
