A Fun Day in Town

Yes, you read that correctly. I did use the word "Fun" in conjunction with a trip to town. :) I had ordered some baby chicks and that required a trip into town last Thursday. DH was helping the neighbors work and he was going to be away all day, so I went in early and met up with a dear friend who also happens to be a ranch wife and a co-worker AND a quilter. :) I adore this gal! Apparently we were having too much fun together to remember to take any pictures.

She's recently started up an Extension Service quilting club and if she's involved, it's bound to be an adventure! She's just such a joy.

We stopped at Hobby Lobby and the little local quilt shop before enjoying a good visit over dinner. ie: lunch and made plans for a road trip to our favorite quilt shop in a tiny town 75 miles from the ranch. I helped her coordinate some fabrics and choose a pattern for her next project. I only bought some Kona Snow for a background for yet another baby quilt and this pink polka dot for a backing:

                           

I also bought this half-hexi ruler. I've got a project planned that includes these fabrics from my stash and a bit of shopping for a few more pieces:

                            

We then parted ways as she had an appointment and I had a date with these darling things at the local seed store:

                          

For now, they are in my sewing room. I hope they don't mind the hum of the sewing machine because with cute company like this,  I may be spending some extra time in there.

lunch and fabric shopping with friends makes a great fun filled day…those chicks are cute…my daughter has just gotten 4 little chicks as she lives in town and they are only allowed to have 6 chickens but it makes here feel like she is home on the farm again…i guess she will inherit her grandfather's chicken feeder…lucky girl

Sounds like great incentive to stay behind the sewing machine! Can't wait to see your next project!

That does sound like a fun day--and sounds like you have a gem of a friend!
Okay, my grandpa was a chicken rancher, so I hate to appear dumb, but with all the chicks I have held and stroked, don't recall any stripes. What is with those?
I'll bet their chirpy, cute company would keep me in my sewing room, too. : )

What a great adventure! I love the pink polka dots. Looks like a girl is expected! Half hexi? Jenny has an easy pattern for these and I'm considering making it, but alas, it's way down on my bucket list.
Enjoy your "free" time and those darling babies.
