|New books and more!|
At left: the books and other loot I shipped back from ALA Midwinter. (57 lbs.) I try not to take so much but I can't resist.
My friends Pat and Ann and I spent the final afternoon at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Had I known earlier that no-flash photography was allowed I would have taken a picture of their Vermeer (so small -- about 8x10). The early Philadelphia and Shaker furniture was a slice of heaven for me. There was just one quilt on display.

I thought I'd make it through the month without buying any fabric, but I didn't.
|Thrift shop + novelty|
So, yes, I did buy more than I used in January. (Added: 20-1/4. Used: 17-3/8.)
OTOH, while the Pfaff was in the shop I basted three quilts (Steelers Stars, I Spy, and a flimsy I made last year). I quilted and bound both the Spy and the Stars -- the former on January 31 and the latter on February 2.
See what other quiltmakers are working on at Judy's Patchwork Times .
P.S. Google had a booth to try Google glass, so I did. IMO it's very distracting.
