KT Winner

Congratulations to knitnoid - you're the winner of the Sweet Pea fabric scraps. Robert is pretty sure he can stuff it all into a priority envelope, so send us your address and be on the lookout! Thanks to everyone who commented about their grankids. Glad I'm not the only one out there who feels like a "bad" gramma revelling in the quiet after they leave. We'll have a couple of them for Labor Day weekend, then miss'em like crazy until the holidays.

Trip to Texas

I spent last weekend in the lovely town of Fredericksburg, TX, a couple hours west of Austin. Their downtown is delightful with shops, restaurants, beer gardens and more fun for tourists. There are loads of winerys -32, if that's your drink -and peaches galore. What a yummy stop! The ladies of the Veriens Quilt Guild were so welcoming - we had a great time at the Icicle Stars class.

My historic accommodations - an 1800's log cabin. So cool! The local quilt shop, One Quilt Place, has moved right down the road from Bev's stone house (across the driveway) and their lovely guest log home. Thanks so much for the most comfortable night's sleep ever on the road!

The original structure housed the bedroom/sitting room with stairs to a loft bedroom.
A small kitchen and spa-like bathroom were added for 21st century comfort. 
On Monday, I travelled down the road to Kerrville, Tx for the Hill Country Quilt Guild program and a Mini Table Treats workshop. (The only picture I took didn't come out well, so unfortunately, no proof that I was working.) The ladies there are represented grandly in Houston this year by several outstanding quilting groups and individuals that have been juried into the show. Congratulations to all of you! I loved seeing the quilts. 

KT Bernina Quilt Shop

Seems Robert is rearranging and expanding the store every time I go in. I think he's got it the way he wants it for now - otherwise, all of my good junk will be shoved right out the back door! I'll have him post a picture soon. 

Check back on Wednesday for our first super special deal!


  1. I also visited this town this summer and just loved it. I would actually leave California and live there if I could. I loved the main street and the shops. It is very busy though and Texas is certainly different from CA. I have been here all my life but I love Fredericksburg. Thanks for bring back some great memories.

  2. What a fun trip - I just love your little cabin!
