I have a few shows coming up so I have been in the studio sewing up a storm!  Today I got a chance to go have lunch with a friend before her little bundle of joy shows up in a few weeks.  Afterwards I dropped into two thrift shops on the way home.

Vera Bradley Metropolitan Laptop bag $24.99

This Bag is awesome.  Normally I would put my laptop in my purse and put all cords in a pouch like these.  Now I can put it all one together.  This gave me a great idea for designing a laptop bag.  It has a gajillion pockets and such.  It even has the opening to slide it on the handle of your luggate…score!

Winter Getaway and Haul Part 2-Dubuque Iowa

Sewing/ Thrift Store

On our Getaway we spent the second half in Dubuque, IA

We stayed at the RedStone Inn Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights.  What a charming B&B, victorian charming and quaint.  This was the office season so we had it all to ourself.  The owner was wonderful, accommodating, great conversationalist and a pleasure all around.

Although Dubuque may not be everyone’s cup of tea we found much to do!  The Mississippi River Boat Museum and Aquarium, 3 thrift stores, a quilt shop and a local yarn store!  The yarn store, Yarn Soup was refreshing.

It was the peferct size for Dubuque and carried a few yarns I had not heard of…so I had to bring it home:).  Introducing Vice on the Paradigm Base..I am seeing a crochet shawl in my future.

I also picked us some two Skeins of Cascade Paints @45% off as I wanted to make something in fall like colors.

I then grabbed to chocolate Alpaca blends

Small bottle of Euclan-I have only used soak and I am not very impressed.  The Jasmine smells sooooo good!

Locking stitch marks

Gauage O knit.

I am a sucker for tools!

By the time we left the yarn shop the quilt store was closed…we said to each other…Next time for sure!

Merry Craftmas!

Toodles!
