I've got a miscellaneous day today. Some of these pictures have been in my camera for a few months and I just haven't spent much time blogging. I'll try to be more on top of things.
First off, I spent my birthday gift certificate today. Thanks, Kathy! :) I've been waiting for their year-end sale to get the most for my money (gift certificate). I didn't go crazy, just picked up a few things. I was almost out of white Fairy Frost, which is one of my staples, and I picked out another white on white fabric that doesn't have the shiny sheen. A Christmas panel, a Christmas print, and a pattern round out my purchases.
This is Oliver, expecting to help me cut fabric today. I had to disappoint him, as today was just a shopping and design day, not a sewing or cutting day.
Next up is my Christmas cactus. I bought it last year in the reduced area at Lowe's. I think it was $1.00, maybe less. I was thrilled when it actually bloomed this year, although this was its one and only bloom. I'm not sure if I did something wrong or if this is just because it was a small cactus. Guess I'll see what happens next year. The bloom was such a pretty shade of coral and I was looking forward to many more colorful flowers.
These next two photos show the loot I picked up at a garage sale in October. (Yes....I should have blogged about it then.) The patterns were $1 each. Great deals!
The fabric was sold at $.12 per inch, a great price in this world of expensive quilt fabric. I got the charm packs for $3 each. This garage sale is once a year and I always look forward to it, hoping to find some great treasures!
Finally, an applique kit that I bought awhile back, also on sale. Do you see a pattern in my shopping habits?? I buy way too much fabric and too many sewing goodies, but at least I wait for sale prices. (This is my way of justifying my bad habit.) I love McKenna Ryan's patterns and kits.
That's it for today. I've got a few more pictures hanging out in my camera and will post them soon. Hope your sewing day is a good one!
