I am so excited. I went out to eat near hubby's job and saw the German word for "sewing stuff" store (stoffe) and decided to go in and I was pleasantly surprised. It is a fabric discount store! I brought some muslin because I honestly don't need anything else but I struck up a conversation with an American lady and she is new to quilting. As a matter of fact she went to her first meeting two days ago. She was buying stuff for a costume for her oh so cute three year old and I was just looking for a reason to spend some euro. Anywho...we exchanged numbers and she even had a contact to help us find a house in the area. There are several women that quilt together in their houses and I am going to a meeting as soon as she calls me back. I am so happy! It has been a good day.
