A trip to the Park (Part 1)

Thank God it’s Friday! This week seems to have gone by really quickly or maybe I just lost track of the days but I was genuinely surprised when Hubby said thank God it’s Friday. Speaking of Fridays, a couple of Fridays ago, I was discussing with my colleague who is a part time photographer about needing a nice location to photograph my quilts (I figured I needed to put in a little effort than my usual practice of laying the quilt across my chair and photographing it late at night…horrendous!). He not only recommended a nice park close to work but he offered to go with me if I had a camera as he didn’t have his professional camera at hand…well my not so shabby camera would have to do as I wasn’t going to pass off this generous offer. I literally dashed home on my break (I live about 10 minutes away) to get my stuffs and we went to a park called “Millennium Park”, It’s a nice quiet park and I’m surprised I hadn’t visited it before.

On getting to the park we settled for the children section of the park and all I had to do was bring out the Quilts and watch him do his thing, I only assisted when required…how fun right! We took lots of pictures and the reason why it has taken me forever to post this is because editing and watermarking photos aren’t my favorite things to do and so I have been procrastinating until now. Too many pictures to show you and I couldn’t choose hence I have to break this in two parts in order not to bombard you with photos 🙂 Enjoy!

It’s “Game on” at the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

I hate to admit it but everyone might actually be right…It’s very possible I am addicted to fabric shopping but isn’t every Quilter or maybe not?  Anyway, on this faithful day, Fabric.com sent an email about having sales on certain fabric lines including their Disney Character panels. I remembered in that mail they had this Princess Sofia panel that was really pretty…You probably know where I am heading with this right? Nevertheless, I followed the link with the intention of feeding my eyes (One day I’d actually do just that) and check out what the sales were all about. One thing led to another and before you know it, there were about 30 panels in my basket! I closed the page in my guilt and kept going back and forth removing and adding over the next few days before the sales stopped…long  story short, I ended up getting 17 panels only (ssshhh let it be our little secret 😉 )Read more: It’s “Game on” at the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
