What I did on my summer vacation.

Honestly people, my photos from the vacation are pretty sparse but I do have these from my visit to Rosebud's Cottage. As you know, I rode back from Quilt Market to Minnesota with Roseann. Our trip started with a really great tour of the Fabri-Quilt offices and warehouse, you should go check out Roseann's post about it here
Anyway we had a total blast driving from Kansas City to Minnesota, stopping along the way at Historic Valley Junction for lunch and some antique shopping. We also drove past the headquarters for Meridith Publishing, which is where our American Patchwork and Quilting comes from!

Where our APQ comes from!

Tuesday, thinking Roseann hadn't had enough of my company, Linda and I went over to see her and the new shop location. As usual, the store is darling. Here's Roseann showing off a PKM project.

Roseann has a nice selection of PKM. Which leads me to today's bonus feature, a give away! I have three lovely gifts from Roseann's shop. The first is A Skinny Minnie Table Runner kit. Totally cute featuring PKM of course!

Second up is a Wool Strawberry Pincushion Kit and third is the darling Vintage Tomato Pincushion kit, as featured above! Leave me a comment and I'll pick a winner. Be sure and check out Roseann's blog,  and where to really catch her is on Facebook, she's always got something going on there.
Ok everybody, have a nice weekend! xo

I've been catching up reading your posts since market- wow, you packed a lot into a little time! L.O.V.E. all of the PKM Love projects, especially Elizabeth's Terrier Town! Oh, my goodness, how adorable! How sweet that you have a new hummingbird family to enjoy. Ours live in the trees and we only get to see them when they venture out for a little sip every now and then. Have a lovely weekend, Pam!

Nearly every day your blog is one of the first things I check. I enjoy seeing your creativity and checking out what mug you are having your coffee in for the day. I miss it when you haven't posted. I was encouraged to do the Blogger's Block of the Month through your blog and I enjoyed seeing your pictures of a part of the country I haven't gotten to visit. Thanks!

I am a new quilter and just finished my first quilt. I am about to start my second project which is the Candy Hearts pattern using your fabric.
I now live in Northern MN, but grew up 2 blocks from Rice Creek and played there as a young girl.
I so enjoy your blog and pretty fabric. Thank you!
