I escaped Fairbanks this past weekend, to visit a friend in Anchorage. Fabric shopping, Title Wave (used/new bookstore), the Anchorage museum, dinner and some tasting at a wine bar, snowshoeing/walking, entertaining baby, walking Gizmo. It was a wonderful break from real life.
I was totally surprised to enjoy the drive back and forth. About an eight hour trip, interrupted by potty breaks and dog walking, and constant scenes of Alaska’s winter beauty, the Parks Highway was in considerably better condition than the last time I drove it. The Subaru Legacy was a pleasure to drive; I was hardly tired when I arrived in Anchorage.
Test fabrics for the tee shirt quilt I’ll be making for the friend I visited:
and fabrics for future projects. A few other odds ‘n ends for gifts too, that of course I won’t be showing 🙂
Possible child-oriented wallhangings, or maybe a pair of baby overalls?
Laurel Burch is one of my favorite artists.
And some wool for applique; so easy to embroider!
Couldn’t get out of Title Wave without a few books!
