Sugar Flower

Last week, or maybe now even the week before, Elizabeth and I went up to the Quilter's Inn to meet up with Nireko to see the latest and greatest from Lecien.

Nireko is always soo cheerful. She came bearing some gifts, look at these lovely purse handles. I am anxious to get to work on something using them. And she showed us the amazing new pieces in the Flower Sugar line that is going to make me weep I love it soooo much. So much. Remember the pretty pastel antique flowers? It's like that. Only better.



Jane's store was crammed with people, so that was fun. I miss seeing people and what they're up to. You always run into some old friends there.

Sorry by I was so overcome with anticipation for Flower Sugar my pictures were cruddy. But you can still tell it's a fun shop.



I like seeing the diversity of quilts there. Something for everyone. Traditional, modern, art. Lovely. Friendly.



Ok, busy couple of days coming so I'll be back at the end of the week. Stay dry peoples!

Holey-moley those purse handles are adorable! And the zipper pull? Seriously? Such cuteness should not be allowed as it causes fluttering hearts and envious eyes. ;)

I think Nireko is waving at ME! It definitely looks like she's doing the "hi Monica wave". Waving back... Hi Nireko! I'm so jealous I couldn't have been there. :( I need to show off my handles since they're different from yours and E. Oh so cute! We can be triplets!

OH MY....Where can I get some cherry purse handles??? I have been saving some ME fabric to make a purse and those handles would be the icing on the cake. After seeing those handles there is NO way I could make this purse with any other kind of handles. Please send info of where I might be able to purchase a set.
