Trip to Rodeo Drive...we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto......

On Saturday I returned from a week long business meeting with other independent retail shop owners In Los Angeles.  Part of our assignment was to make the trip down Rodeo Drive with a partner (mine was Barb from Watermark in Moline, IL, she was great!) to study and learn about merchandising and shop layout.  OH MY......   it was quite an experience......




 My partner for the morning - I am sorry I did not get a picture of her from the front!  We are entering PRADA.....

In the Quilting Queue....


I promised I would show you the progress....

A winter snowmobiling vacation for Tom and I, meant a little sewing for me and watching classic westerns like Gunsmoke and Bonanza for Tom.  We had a wonderful time even though the temperature in Brainerd, Minnesota never got above 15 degrees that last week in February.

I took this lovely along to sew with!  Bernina 350LE a dream to sew with and to look at.  Comes with a walking foot, 37 foot and 20 foot and slide on tray that I needed plus so much more.






First up was this quilting bag with Tula Pink Fabrics.
Quilting with my walking foot and an oops with a folded corner!



Sewing the chevrons, I found they laid flatter if I pressed everything out when there were so many fabrics and angles at the intersections.


Petrilo Bag using Downton Abbey fabrics, this has in inside padded pock for your I-pad or tablet!






Mini Professional Bag - I made the large one years ago - LOTS OF PIECES.  Have it all cut and facings ironed on while on vacation - wonder if I will have to wait for another to get this finished!
Happy Sewing Everyone!
