My New Favorite Coffee House and Butterfly Trails


Happy Sunday Friends!
A few girls from work and I met at the Stuart Coffee Company on Saturday afternoon for a little "Sit n Knit" session.
This place is not new to our area but it is new to Me J  It’s a quaint little place downtown that serves coffee, tea, light meals, etc.  We met there to work on these…
 Helmet Liners

I didn’t get pictures of the girls, at their request, but I’m not sure I’ll always be able to honor that…they are going to have to smile for the camera sooner or later ;) 

I also didn’t get any pictures of the inside but I will soon.  My DH is very interested in visiting with me.  (I guess Starbucks and Barnes & Noble is wearing old)

Now…for the big news!  Butterfly Trails is a flimsy!

 
I had this much thread left..
 
 
 
I found myself sewing faster and faster towards the end...you know, like THAT was going to keep me from running out.  One word for ya....WHEW!
 
I will shop for backing fabric next weekend and hopefully, it will be bound and labeled the next time you see it.
I love the way it turned out and my DD is super excited.  So excited that we are planning a whole room makeover…more to come!
I rewarded myself for this big accomplishment by starting a ‘no brainer’ project.   A ruffle scarf…
 
I got the yarn at this cute yarn store…

My poor machine is worn out and needs to be serviced.  I’ll probably take it in on Monday and get it ready for the holiday projects I have planned.  Not sure I’ll have a lot of quilting to share next week but I do owe Mom a couple of scarfs and there is always a helmet liner to work on.
Have a blessed week my Friends J

  4. Butterfly Trails turned out wonderful! Such a beautiful quilt top. Your coffee shop knitting session sounds dreamy to me. Love the start to both of your projects. The ruffle scarves are fun to work up - really like the color combination you are working with.

  8. I love your Butterfly Trails quilt! Great colors. Don't you love finding a wonderful little coffee shop? There used to be one I would stop in every day before work. I would have my coffee and work the crossword puzzle.
