OK--lets do the happy dance around the room and back again!!!

OH--why are we doing a happy dance????

because it is-------
And someone needs to be 'happy' about it---
(besides all the mothers who have 'children' who will be back in school!!!)
yesterday was 'pay' day --
and Di went shopping--
Had to go to the Quilt shoppe for a Birthday gift for my Anne--
and it was the last day of the 20% off all summer long that I had earned--

Is this Chicken pattern not, cute??????
and look at that fat quarter pack of Halloween prints--
I love that first one with the 'eyes' on it--????

and got these two for some fall projects too!!!
these where about $11.00 a yard=$8.80 a yard--
there is one yard of the purple
(and  yes Alice that is 'purple'!!!!)
 and half yard of the orange print!!!
Then I ended up in her sale room--
These 3 pieces where on sale at $3.00 at yard--got a couple yards of each--
cause they only cost me $2.60 a yard!!!!
and this 'pile' was at $5.00, a yard=$4.00 a yard--
and again got more than a yard of each--
was good timing to get longer pieces for backings--
or borders,,, or what ever!!!!
Oh and yes -- I did get Anne's ruler and a Quilt Sampler magazine!!!!
Then I did stop at  the yarn shop and picked up a couple skeins of sock yard I had set aside--
then it was to the Country shop--
and I made someone really happy there--
Meet 'Webster'--the spider--
He was tired of living in a plastic bag all crunched up--
now he has a new home!!!
and yes the fall garland of pip berries is new--
as well as this--
There is a story behind this moon---
This was the 3rd year that she has put this single moon and crow out---
the first year I wanted it--but did not buy it--
the second year I really wanted it--but did not buy it---
yesterday I walk through the door and there it sat on the first fall display--
that was it--I walked over and picked it up and said--it is about time you went home with me!!!!!!
End of story!!!!!

Well enough of 'spending' money on this post today---!!!!!!!
I am still working on the cleaning and reorganizing the apartment--
it is coming slowly, but I do like how it is coming out--soooooo!!!!!!

Hope you all have a great week end--
Happy dance away!!!!
and a great start to the month of September!!!!!
Hugs, Di and Miss Gracie
