Hey, do y’all like my new Christmas dress?I’m just joking:) Shelley and I decided to do a little shopping yesterday. We visited the Red Barn Nursery. They turn the whole farmer’s market barn into a cozy Christmas place. They have a fire in the fireplace and even a kitty that was especially fond of Shelley.

Then we headed to the Woodstock town square where we went to Seasons by Peg/Cobblestones. Oh my that was Christmas heaven in there! So many awesome displays and gifts and ornaments. The whole store was Christmas.

That’s where we saw this cool “dress” displayed. And look at these cute elf shoes that I couldn’t resist buying.

They match my quilt perfect, right?

Of course we couldn’t go shopping without visiting at least one quilt store. So off to Material Girls. One of my projects for 2011 is to finish the rest of the New York Beauty quilt. My 1st block is the one that I use for my avatar.My focus is going to beย  Kona cottons as the solids, Kaffe polka dots along with Kaffe prints. So, I picked some more of those up today. Here’s what I have so far. I”m thinking that me and Shelley may need to make a trip to Quiltology in Chicago this weekend to do some fabric shopping. They have a great selection of Kaffe.
