They say "Shop til you drop" well that used to be when you went out of your "Home" to shop--Soooooo I guess if you are shopping on-line it would have to be til your wrist or arm gave out--RIGHT????? OR YOUR EYE SIGHT or your poor brain just could not take it any longer!!!!! It's all the girls fault at the Schnibbles of year --they announced Octobers pattern and my local shop did not have it:
OK--so if not in the local shop--you go to the internet--I found the pattern
fairly easily-----BUT that was the easy part--the next big and very important question WAS---what fabric did I want to use to make it--now you know I have been collecting charm packs to do these patterns in--in fact to date I have "11" sets of them--BUT would any of these work--no-no-no- none seemed right--so back to the Internet and all those fabric sites--it took me HOURS and hours to decide what would work that "I" liked--but finally bleary eyed I made my decision and ordered--I now have 7 1/2 yards of fabric coming in for one little Schnibbles pattern--and NO charm packs--am I crazy or what????? It took two fabric company;s to get all the prints and colors I wanted --- good news is at least one of those had the pattern!!!!
I was in my rocker and it was late and I was sooo glad to be off this thing--when I remembered there was a "CERTAIN" piece of fabric that I had found on one of the other sites and I HAD--AND I MEAN I HAD to have it--so back on I came and did a third order--this one just for the fun of it---what did I have to have you ask---well--I am going to be a meany and not tell you--but it does have to do with a project I am working on?????
This morning I had to do this:
I used to come home and fill up two of our metal carts here to get all the groceries up stairs to my apartment--today I only used one cart and it was not overly loaded and I spent the same amount---OUCH!!!! But I did find these--FINALLY at the grocery store:
I love these--they are organic too--but the store had been out of them for over 6 months or more--so I got two boxes and if I had had the money I would of bought all they had on the shelf?????
After lunch I did get the borders on my scarecrow and then I did this to it--
It is all basted ready to hand quilt ( what can't see the outter border--opps--guess you will have to wait to see it later!!!)--SO now do I lay a side the christmas I am hand quilting and do the fall one or??????
I am so amazed--blogging friends--we sometimes think NO BODY is reading our sites -- because we only get a couple comments--so I added the neo counter (it;s on the bottom of my site) and WOW--I have had 135 visitors in two days and they are from 19 countries so far--so now I can say I am known the world over!!!!!!!
Hugs to all and here is a little extra sweetness for you'all-
