Last November I decided not to participate in our local Shop Hop, because I still had at least two projects purchased the prior year that had yet to be started. However, I found some laminated cards that listed all the shops with their addresses and phone numbers. I said Self, that would be a good thing to have in your car. And it came in handy today. We made the hour and a half trek back to Baltimore for a post op procedure that took about 2 and a half minutes. So I decided that we should make the trip worthwhile, and whipped out the card to See if there was a shop nearby. Not only was there a shop, but they were having a yard sale!
Are you ready for this? I bought 29 patterns for 50 cents each!!!!! I couldn't decide, and for that price, I just kept throwing them into my basket.
Single fat quarters were only $1.00, so a few came home with me.
Nothing like a little Quilt Shop therapy to make a girl feel better. On the way home, we stopped at a new Wegamans in a neighboring town. It's the first time I've been to Wegamen's, and it was pretty nice. I found this on my way to the checkout.
I think I remember paying a nickel for these back in the olden days. They're 99 cents now, but I had to have one.
To top off my fun, I scrolled through a few blogs when I got home, and found out I won this wonderful prize at The Raspberry Rabbits
Now, I do believe this is Post #200 for me, so I think I should share the fun. I think I may have 'accidentally' purchased more than one of a few patterns, Please comment on this post to be entered, and tell me what your favorite part of making a quilt is. Do you have a favorite block? Do you love to applique? How about embroidery or crazy quilting. Are you a master quilter? Share the best part with me. Good luck! Drawing will be held Monday night, and international entries are welcome.
Counting my blessings...and my new patterns...Sunny
