Tasting Table Tuesday

The schedule here is still a little out of whack, but I'm lovin' it.  My daughter and grand-daughter are here for the week, so there's been no sewing in the Cotton Cellar lately.  Although the little one has been playing with my fabric scraps and any other odds and ends she can get her little hands on.  And she LOVES corn-on-the-cob!
My daughter loves to sew too, so today the three of us took a trip to Ithaca NY to go fabric shopping at Quilter's Corners and Homespun Boutique.  I came home with a nice little stash of new treats.  At Homespun I bought a nice soft woven grey cotton for the back of my Haberdashery quilt (and it's 56" wide, so no seaming needed - gotta love that!) and a gorgeous skein of hand-painted yarn, and at Quilter's Corners I bought a stack of 11 fat quarters (buy 10 get one free!), a quilt pattern called Ballerina by Jaybird Quilts, and a book of geometric machine-quilting designs by Charlotte Warr Anderson called One Line at a Time.  I didn't actually NEED anything except the backing fabric for my quilt, but everything else just jumped off the shelf and said "take me home!".
We had a tasty lunch at the Ithaca Bakery.  It was pretty crowded, but the food was great and the service was friendly.  Thumbs up from me!
Now back to the Yard Sale preparations - Saturday will be here before we know it!  Cheers!
