Our Anniversary and a Fabric Giveaway!

This post may contain affiliate links which wonโ€™t change your price but will share a commission.

Today is our anniversary and we plan to spend the day driving the back roads, doing a little shopping and of course eating. The weather is fairly cool so we’ll take little Sadie along. She loves to go in the car and I think she can spot a park a mile away.

Sadie our cute dog

I worked like crazy and finished up four quilt projects that I can’t show so I plan on just relaxing today and enjoying our day. Tomorrow we’ll head to Menards and take advantage of their 11% sale as we haven’t bought mulch yet. We are also going to replace our downstairs door and have been waiting for this sale. I’ll be keeping Builder Bob busy!

So I have been searching for blue fabrics for her quilt.
