One of my favorite restaurants (Jason's Deli) is located across the street from my LQS. Each time we eat there, it's a running joke that I ask who out of my four boys "wants to go to the Quilt shop?" Usually it's closed.
Last week, when we went to eat, it was actually open. Lo and behold, somehow I managed to convince my entire family of boys to stop in with me. I was excited at the chance to feel some of the pretty fabric on a spur of the moment stop.
I didn't find anything to buy. Two of my boys did. I tried to protest....saying that we hadn't come there to buy fabric for them. My 4th "boy", Mr. GXQ, stepped in. He claimed that if I took my boys to the fabric shop, I couldn't deny them a purchase.
I guess I now have 2 pillows to make. The ladies working at the shop enjoyed this banter as I objected.

I also stopped into an antique shop this week and found an old Twister game for $2. Remember my original Twister-inspired quilt? I actually have another one that has been sitting as a UFO because I gave the finished one to my niece and nephews. My SIL mentioned the game board I made was having tough time holding up to friendly abuse from being played, so I made a mental note to pick up an old game for the second version. I guess this UFO is coming out of hiding?
I am trying to make my WIP short. What is happening?
