Beyond spending three days with my wonderful son, highlights from this weekend included upscale BBQ at Chicago Q, visiting Historical Pullman, attending the Chicago International Children's Film Festival Awards Ceremony (adult and kid jurors...love it) and watching the Patriots game sitting at the bar of Pizzeria da Nella, an amazing Neopolitan restaurant we just happened across (but of course, this is Chicago!).

Note my sons elbow as he is assisting me with my selections.
I love those shorts and the apron!
Exercising enormous restraint, I brought home these beauties. From left to right...Timeless Treasures Menswear Eyeglasses, Ann Kelle Super Kids, Rashida Coleman-Hale Koi Scalloped Edges, Pat Bravo Carnaby Street Go-Go, Amy Butler Belle French Wallpaper and Anna Maria Horner Hand Drawn Garden Sketchbook. Wow.
I wish I lived closer to take classes. Don't tell my husband, but I can shop on-line at The Needle Shop without having to visit Chicago. (yeah!)
Back home, my sewing/office/guest bedroom has something new on the walls.
I actually WON this print during the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway party. Heather at quilt.cook.keep is the artist. Doesn't it look perfect in my room?
Now, I really should be doing some sewing! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
PS If you haven't already done so (and I know all you busy bloggers have already!), it is not too late to vote in the Bloggers Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side!
