WET day here all day--woke early to hear rain pounding the windows--
and it has been that way off and on all day--
our pond is full--full -- full!!

I did get a package in the mail this week--
from Missouri star quilt co.--the charm pack--Toscana was on special for only-
wait for it--
only 99 cents--sooo--
and it is full of luscious colors of greens, blues, purples, ect--!!!
and I got some black grunge--for a project--
and some dark purple grunge--just because!!!
and the 2 small prints for baby quilts--hopefully--
hey Sunny--what can make with half yard of these????

and yesterday I had some really gooood coupons for JoAnn's so another tenant
Caroline and I ventured there--
and here is my stash from there--
some butttons for a couple special projects--the tiny black rick rack is also for a project--
and --buttons were 50% off with my coupon--the rick rack was 40% off with the coupon!!
take a look at this find--
remember me getting a 10" layer cake of these prints--
and I even found the quilt pattern I want to use--but needed a fabric to go with them--
and this was 50% off for the cut--3 1/2 yards--yes!!!
and it took some hunting in the last month but I finally found the perfect one--
now--tell Diane to get busy and start it--
she is trying to tell herself that she has to wait until after Christmas to stitch it--
as she needs to be working on Christmas gifts--!!!!!

and on the way home we stopped at a different thrift store
and I made a bigggg purchase--
bought me a Cherry pie for 50 cents!!!
I used to love pretty tins and had some in NY--but this is my first one for here--
and here is the inside--
all cherries--wonder what came in the tin?????

Hope to have a finish for you tomorrow--
so stay tuned!!!!
In the meantime--
check out my other site--as I took some photos from the bedroom window !!!
