monday post

vacation days are whizzing by at speed of light but squeezing out as much fun as possible...sunday trekked to marden's aka fabric mecca to meet up with pal vic from NH...she and her hubster are such kind, thoughtful and generous people.  first up was retail therapy...naturally!  and there was a very rare sale at marden's as well...remember those snapdragons?  picked up these as absolutely HAVE to capture that garden in fabric....

my stash is sorely lacking (if you can believe that) in yellows and greens...still have to find some good pinks, and i've tons of luscious kaffe reds/magentas on here's 1.75 yards of name-brand bargain goodies for the unbelievable sum of $6.60...that's right...incredible!  after this we headed for pizza and before she left, gifted me with some lovely lavender sachets and a pretty little quilt...her machine quilting skills have improved immensely....she is one awesome gal! 

gonna be hanging this little cutie on my antique sled at for today, perfect summer weather and beach was on tap...and it didn't disappoint....early arrival and out by noon (no umbrella) but it was super....water lovely and warm and not at all frigid, typical for this time of year. 

on our way north, stopped here for a bag of goodies for a family get is picture perfect and every day another gem.  

pretty sure i passed my fun meter max already but what a way to go!


  1. I hope you and Vic kept yourselves from getting into TOO much trouble at Marden's! Enjoy your week Down East. Wish I were there.

  2. nice to see the isle of shoals missing it this year

  3. So glad to see you and give you the little quilt for your upcoming birthday! Old friends are the best!

  4. So nice to see you at Cyndi's however brief! Happy to hear you are having a ball. The weather surely has been cooperative. Let the weather man know when you are heading home as we surely do need rain!

  5. We aren't going to the East Coast this year so missing my Mardens visit. But given how much fabric I've bought already this summer maybe that's a good thing. So glad the weather was nice for your trip, it can really be a bummer to have it turn nasty on a beach day

  6. Don't know how I missed this post! What a lovely day you had--filled with friends, fabric, family, sea and sand!
    Everybody's fun meter needs maxing out now and then. :)
