Material Girls quilt Shop, La Plata, Md.

What a nice shop*** WOW*** This shop is owned by Wanda Henly and her two daudhters, Wendy and Amy.Amy was not there today, but I did get to meet Robin and Wendy.Both were especially nice.

The store was great as well, I took lots of pics, but will share only a few with you. If you ever find yourself in La Plata.Md, stop in, you'll be so glad you .

There was so much to see and a lot to do, if you are looking for a good place to take classes.

If you will, go to their webb site http://www.materialgirlsquilt.com/.. and take a look.The shelves were well stocked with the newest fabrics, patterns and notions. I have really enjoyed my afternoon here. Of course, I purchased a little something. this is a panel and I got the borders I plan to use,

should be quick and easy.

I also got a jelly roll and a package of charm squares. so my work is cut out for me. Do check out material Girls, I think you will like them,cause I just know they are always quilting memories.


GD, DH, Sister and Neice

This post has a bit of this and a bit of that ***VBS***
The pic. of the computer cover and also the one of the young lady ( my neice) holding the edge of a quilt is one that she made.She is quiet talented, and she got hers quilted as soon as she finished with it, no, she didn't do the quilting herself and I don't know who did, but the quilt is so pretty. I told her as soon as we get home from our travels, we will paint our bedroom so that when she gives me the quilt it will match***I don't understand why she didn't think that was a great idea***Oh well ***
the other quilt that is being held is my sisters, she has been going to " Scrap Therapy classes and has made the quilt top she is holding, I like it a lot also, she has done a fantastic job on that one also. The quilt blocks you see, my sister is also making. The pattern is called "Prickly Pears", lots of beautiful decorative stitches, she has a long way to go, but when she gets it finished it, too, is going to be georgeous. I am so proud of both of them.
The picture of DH throwing a baseball was taken at the Greensboro Grasshoppers opening game. He was honored to be asked to do that,FYI, the Greensboro Grasshoppers are the minor league team for the Red Sox.
The picture of the young lady in the race car is our GD, she looks like she was enjoying herself,
I think she did*VBS* This picture was taken when we worked the Wal Mart in Winston Salem. There was a lot of family and friends that came to see us there, some even looked us up after we had closed down. I am so glad we decided to eat at the McDonalds that is in Wal Mart.
Mrs. Goodneedle and her Hubby and Son and DIL, had come to see us and that's where they found us. The District Mgr. was with us that day and at 6pm he said we had been there long enough and he wanted to go, so we did,that happens sometime. Also on Saturday we were at Lowe's in Kernersville and had a visit from Quiltkemosabie and her Hubby and their Son. I was so glad to get to see all my buddies. There were several friends that I hadn't seen in quiet a while there also,It was good to see everybody.That was a great 2 days.
I also got to visit the LQS 2 days while we were in WS, of course being there with all my great friends was wonderful, now maybe I can make it through these next 2 months.Although I should be able to see some family then also.
When I get through with my laundry, we are going to a quilt shop I saw yesterday, I could almost walk there from the motel. As we were coming into town yesterday, I saw it, so now I am excited about my visit with them. I will post about it soon.We are in La Plata, Md. I am not going to post our schedule, as it's already changed several timea in the last few days, but we are in the DC area, will be all over this place, here for 2 weeks, are scheduled to go to 6-7 of the pro ballgames around here, so hope someone can find us and say hello.
It's time to check on my wash, so hope you are somewhere sunny and warm today. Once again it's chilly and rainy here. I am thankful we don't have to work today. Maybe tomorrow it will be nice here. Take care and keep Quilting Memories.

Sorry, but I made a mistake on our schedule for Friday, we will be at Lowes in Kernersville, not Wal Mart.... Sorry The address is 145 Harmond Creek Rd. We will be there from 9 am-2 pm.
Yes, I know I fuss all the time about our schedule changing, but this was my mistake, I'm just addle-brained...Hope to see ya'll anyway. The Lowes store is very close to WM, so if you were coming to see us, you still should be able to find us. Hope to see ya soon. Me and He

Wake Forest, NC

Here we are in Wake Forest, NC, and when we looked out our motel window this old barn was looking at us ***VBS*** I love old barns, I have no idea why, but they fascinate me. I couldn't beleve what I saw. We are a little far out in the country, but not that far, or so I thought. But anyway, I haven't been to any quilt stores while in the Raleigh area, so have nothing much to talk about.

After our event tomorrow, we will be headed to the Greensboro area. I am so excited, cause I can spend a little time with our kids and grandkids, and maybe even get to see our little Great GS, that will be great. then I think we are going to go see my sister and BIL and friends in Va, the next weekend, maybe spend Easter there, thats not a sure thing yet though. They may be going to Michigan, to see her son and family.

Here is our schedule for next week, if you can come by and check us out:

4/8 Wed. Wal Mart Hwy 150 W.S. 3pm-8pm

4/9 Thurs. Grasshoppers game in Greensboro 3-7 pm

4/10 Fri. Wal Mart Kernersville 9am-2pm

4/11 Sat. Grasshoppers game in Greensboro 3pm-7pm

Hope to see some of my family and friends.
