I pulled out my pink stash and worked on a commissioned project yesterday.
Can you see where I’m going with this? I’ll share more on it later.
Saturday I received a package in the mail and it contained 2 books and some fabric that I won from Quilt Shop Gal. Actually I won it last year when she was SewCalGal, she changed her name and website and you should definitely start following her. Anyway…..I knew I won the fabrics but……I didn’t realize they were batiks until they arrived!!! Beautiful! Thanks Darlene!
I also picked up some great buys from our LQS. They had a fantastic sale with all fabrics in the store 25% off and…..a whole wall of fabrics that were $1.99 a yard. I never realized how many quilters were in our town……it was wall to wall women! These are the fabrics I grabbed and then I got into the long line to get them cut….to make it easy on them……I bought all that was left on the bolts. I had gone to town with Builder Bob……can you imagine what I would have bought if I could have stood in line for 2 hours! He had dropped me off and sat in his truck…..when I didn’t come out he came in the store and it still took him some time to find me…….lots of quilters! I thought the pink would be great for backing on a quilt but…..I have other plans for it now.
The big project yesterday was…..taxes! I have no idea why we put them
off…..procrastinate…..that is me. They are done and now I feel so
much better, I even made a little money from my blog! After taxes I spent some time working on my Etsy store…….I actually added 2 more patterns and I’ll be adding more.
