I have so many things buzzing around in my head that I am almost feeling overwhelmed. I have so many quilts that I want to make. I am a hand quilter, so no way can I keep up with what I am piecing. I love redwork. I have several projects there that I want to work on. I enjoy applique, both machine and needle turn. Again, several projects that I want to do. I also enjoy counted cross stitch. I made counted cross stitch birth announcements for Ashton and Noah. Hmmm, Hazel asked me a while ago where Izabella's is. Let's see, I am just a little behind. I need to make one for Ava, Izabella, and Madison. If only I didn't need to sleep. LOL Oh mustn't forget, I also enjoy crocheting, knitting, and reading. Just not enough time in my day, I tell you. Even feeling as overwhelmed as I have been, I was so excited to get this in the mail today.
As I told you before, we went to Jamesport on Saturday. I love it there. Their Fabric Barn is not huge, but it fits me perfectly. A lot of their fabric is a few season's ago, but I don't care. If I like it, it doesn't matter to me if it is current or not. Everything I bought was quilt store quality and was $4-$7 a yard. I do like getting fabric from Wal Mart for $2 a yard if it is good quality, but they are going to quit selling it in a few months. I love JoAnn's but only buy their fabric that is on sale. (Of course, I missed their big Memorial Day Sale, visiting the grands.) So I need to realize that I am going to have to pay more for fabric unfortunately. Since the trip to Jamesport was kind of a spur of the moment, I didn't have a list prepared, so I had to wing it. LOL I ended up buying this pattern and picking out Thimbleberries fabric to make it.
Sunday, I had to run to Wal Mart for something for Kevin. I figured as long as I was out, I might as well stop by JoAnn's and use those coupons that were burning a hole in my pocket. LOL I like a pair of small scissors to clip threads at my sewing machine. Somehow, I have misplaced my pink handled scissors that I always use. (I am blaming it on the cats. hehe) So I took the blue handled ones I use for quilting and embroidery and moved them to the machine. Then I bought these cute little Italian made scissors for half off.
