fabric, firearms, flambee and cake

The Dixie stars crossed 3 states to visit maryjo’s in Gastonia nc, this place is massive, but we used a divide and conquer approach with great success. No photos on the quilting front or at lunch, but we had a great time. Kathy has this really cool app on her phone that uses a gps to give you a list of quilt shops in the area. We went to the quilted thimble cottage which is a lovely place that until recently had only provided quilting service, but has begun to carry fabrics. The people there were super nice, so if you are in Belmont, NC, look them up. Here’s what I got at maryjo’s and the quilt shop-I have plans for project bags for a lot of what I got, and was thrilled to get a piece of backing for a queen size quilt top I made, and I won’t have to piece it together (yea!).


The quilt shop in Belmont was located on a 2nd floor of an old building in the downtown area, and this sign was posted on the door next to the entrance. totally random i know, but I couldn’t resist, and since we had no idea what this “place”
The awesome thing about having someone else who likes to cook in the house is that Andrew had dinner well in hand and I didn’t have to do anything but sit down and eat when we got back at 6:45 pm (we departed Acworth at 6 am!) he did a great job grilling chicken-AND since I like to get a jump on Sunday lunch, we seared pork loin chops and decided to throw in some fresh peaches and garlic-Andrew has this “thing” with fire and he wanted to flambee the dish, so we added bourbon and fire-I should have captured the photo earlier cause it burned a little longer than I thought. The chops were very good BTW.

Since we had some raspberries that needed to be used, I had Andrew make a cake from the recent bon appétit blackberry buttermilk cake-very tasty-and I’d say a pretty good Saturday-how was yours?
