WOW!!! What a day! We walked and walked and shopped and shopped… I kept within the budget…just barely… *wink* Did sign up for an ongoing BOM, so I guess realistically.. I went a little into the red… but it’s spread out over 9 months…so..Don’t know if that counts..hahaha
We found so many projects to start and so many fun fabrics. Here are some of the fabrics that Called my Name and said “BUY ME, BUY ME”
|Seeing a wonderful Summer
Table Cloth Quilt here…
|Just called my name for some sort of
fun mini with these fat quarters
Ever since I saw the Spinning rotary mat over at Sew We Quilt during Tool Time, I’ve been watching the price… It was too good of a deal to pass up this time. Plus I found a skinny/long ruler that I never see. And Best Press Refill bottle was an AWESOME price… can never have too much of it. 🙂
|All were more than 1/2 off ..Couldn’t resist.|
I always have to find something new to try and This year I found two things to give a whirl. The first is a different type of stenciling system, called Quilt Pounce. Had never heard of it, or tried it, may regret it… may not…will let ya know.. I thought it was pretty neat that the chalk didn’t come off easily and if you ironed it… It disappeared completely.
Second… I decided to try my hand at some hand dyed wool work. It’s been awhile since I’ve done any of it…I am sure it will come back to me pretty quick, but looking for something as gifts and to do while I am camping or in front of the TV… Cross stitch is getting to be to hard on the old eyes and not ready to bite the bullet and get glasses… So We went in together and got these three patterns to try…
Some of you may remember I am doing a BOM called Love Letters, Well we are both doing it, but I decided I am going to make mine a little different… I fell in love with this Applique and I think it will look amazing on the quilt… So I am going to do a little modifying of my pattern… That’s okay though.. Beauty of quilting… 🙂
|This is from Metropolitan Quilt. LOVED THEIR BOOTH!!!
Had to stop myself at just one though for right now.
Will be back for more online.
And I found my stand for the upcoming projects going on over at Sew I Quilt. Was excited to find one..and not have to pay any shipping 😉 Just needs a little assembly. More on this one later.. 🙂
