The day before we came home from our trip to Minnesota, we stayed in Clear Lake, Iowa.This picture was taken along the lake. We would have loved to go out on the ferry but it was closed.

Remember when I mentioned the other day that I didn’t do much shopping while on our trip? That was because I knew I would have several packages waiting for me when I got home. I couldn’t wait to open my packages!

I’ll be sharing a tutorial soon on Inspired by Fabric featuring this cute bundle of fabrics called Nite Owls

I have a few AccuQuilt projects coming up with these dies. I can’t wait to work with the AccuQuilt GO! 4″ finished size Drunkard’s Path block and the GO! 9″ finished size Churn Dash block.

I also bought a kit with free video lessons from Craftsy and that box was here when I got home. The class is still on sale for $18 a 50% savings. It is called Artful Layering Kit.

Here are some of the things from the kit and also some extras I bought while on sale.

Save this for later!

I'll email you this post so you can come back to it later.

Don't worry, I promise not to spam you.

I also did a little Amazon shopping and picked up several neat books by Suzanne McNeill and also some watercolor paints.

  2. That picture on the lake looks like it is COLD! Looks like you had a lot of loot to come home to. I love that owl fabric … nothing like a cute owl.

    I love the owl fabric that you bought. I think I might have to consider seriously getting a Accuquilt cutting device!

    The lake looks a bit chilly. We ate at the best local cafe when we stopped there years ago.

    Good morning Connie…So happy you had a great time in Minnesota. Wow, I would have been putting pedal to the metal knowing all that was waiting for me back home. It must have been like Christmas morning opening all those packages, ooing and aahhing over their contents. Have fun, now that you are home!
