I dunno if this little quilt has been shown before, but I can't post without some picture up for you to look at. I love the yellow and teal together, don't you?

My homegirl has gone back to Cali ***sigh*** it was all too short this little visit.

We had a great time at the Storytelling festival. I love that people can just stand up in front of hundreds of pairs of watchful eyes and tell a story that will have you in stitches. Too funny........and wild!

Jonesborough is a beautiful little town in Western Tennessee.........and the first settled town in that state. In addition to this festival which draws "tellers" from all around the globe, it also draws thousands of attendees.

One of the draws for me was that Jonesborough is the home of Tennessee Quilts, one of the coolest shops I've ever been in. I've ordered from them online before so I was anxious to see this shop. It was just across the street from the Visitor's Center where you register for the festival, so it wasn't hard to find. I waited til the last day of the festival to pay it a visit. I picked up some fat quarters, a pattern for an apron, and some Kaffe Fasset turquoise shot cotton yardage that was on back order at my local quilt shop here in Boone.

I need to get back into my normal routine...I feel disconnected in some ways. House needs cleaning, laundry needs doing, and I haven't sewn in over a week. Yikes! Better get busy.

So glad your trip was nice! That's great that you were able to go to Tenneesee Quilts - I'd love to shop there in person. I really appreciate your gratitude list... they help me reflect on all of the things that I have to be grateful for, as well as a reminded not to take things for granted.

Have a great weekend!
