OKAY---Di&co---we did not get a post "out" of you yesterday---soo what's up???
AH---OH I know --- it is Little sister's fault!!!!! she decided that we needed a trip over town and some fresh air and sunshine--so after I got back from seeing Mary we took off----
First stop was the SPCA thrift store---I am always sooo "torn" when I go in there--they are a "high-end" thrift store (their words)---and the prices shout that out loud and clear--so it is hard for me to find anything to buy there--here's the two treasures I got there--
both are cute--but did I really need them????? Little sister and I decided we were just going to buy things at the store--cat food--dog food, paper towels etc and take that over to help them out!!
then we went to one of shops that has reopened since the fire over town--that was not a good experience either--the owner's wife was there, only she did not know any prices and Nothing was priced--so my question is "how can you sell things if nothing is priced and she would not give you a price????" Plus again--what little was priced was way tooooo high!!!! Is is garage sale time yet????
Sooo our next stop was the Quilt shop---that place I know I can "find" some goodies in---and we were on a mission anyways---- I signed up to do this--
Kelly from Charming gals is doing this one and it is on January 23, all day--I have never done a sew-in before--sooo who knows what will happen?????
this selection of fabric came home with us--some are new--like the two light colored ones with the hearts and a couple of the pinks and some of the reds where on her clearance section--so we finally had some fun--searching and matching and collecting the fabrics!!! And---
I also got some of these three for my stash?????? What can I say-----!!!!
We did stop at the Pizza place and ate a hot slice of pizza before we came home--yummmy!!!
then I get a phone call from none other than Middle sister and she and her husband are in town and she had some books for us--so we went down to their van and looked at books--I did get a couple -- but little sister took all the rest--we did finally exchange Christmas gifts--
Sister knows I like cats!!!
And plates---actually she said this was the "Ugliest" plate in color that she has ever seen--but it had my name written alllll over it---yep--I think she is right--now to find some wall space in my workshop to hang it up---plus
they gave me a Walmart card for $25--and today I have thought of "lots" of way of spending that card!!!!!
Sooo--by the time this was over---I was exhausted--so it was time for my "power" nap--did nap--but unfortunately NO power showed up---
So I did this--and now it is ready for the backing and batting then there is more trims to add---
I thought I would read alittle before visiting "blog land"---only---I ended up reading the "whole" book--got finished at 1:00 am--so that was the end of my day!!!
Sunday--I knew that if I did not do the "c" word today I would really be in trouble with the Judge and the Quilt Police--sooo---I did muddle along today---and I did finally get my work room all done and "cleaned"--here's the proof---
The brown shopping bag in this photo is filled with some of my strips and scraps for the "string quilt" challenge I am in---the next pile is Mending--you know that pile that gets shifted around alot!!!!
I kept thinking there is something missing on my "bed" and here it is!!!!
OH Dear--he looks to be in "trouble" here?????
but if he is not totally melted--he may be "saved" by morning--they are talking ice and snow after the rain we are now getting---SOOOO--hang in there Mr. Snowman--relief is on it's way---
