Want to see all the new stuff I got recently?
OK. Let’s go!!
Wrought iron quilt hanger with a heart. Found this on eBay.
It fits my Dresden Plate mini quilt perfectly with a couple inches to spare. Now I have to either sew on hanging tabs in the back or make a hanging sleeve.
Books. I really loved the Jesse Stone movie series with Tom Selleck that I bought a couple weeks ago. Dark but mesmerizing. I love the characters.
I so wanted to know what happened to Jesse after the last movie, No Remorse, that I bought all the books. I received these yesterday. Two more to come. I will start with the first book, Night Passage, and work my way through them all.
I recently switched to all cotton for sewing my quilt tops. Didn’t like it at first. Seemed to curl up around the sewing machine needle when I pulled on it. Figured out it was just the first few inches doing it probably from being wound so tightly around the spool top. I am trying some new threads too. Variegated and transparent. Will let you know how I like them.
Too cheap to pass up. From JoAnn’s. $8 for the larger one. $5 each for the smaller ones. I am going to use them for fabric scraps. I can easily stack them if space becomes an issue.
Got my giant clips, my soapstone, my gloves, more rulers. And about 800 bent quilting pins. Do I have enough!!
Then got all of this for $12 from my brother-in-law’s Resale Shop.
A huge picnic basket, 3 clocks THAT WORK, 3 curtain rods that I hope to use to hang my quilts. What a deal. Yay!!
And last… I saved the best for last.
FABRIC. OMG!! Please!! Someone stop me!! Please send the Popo. The Fabric Police. I need help.
I got Fat Quarters, batik charms, Moda solids, novelty charms, flowers, butterflies, polka dots, circles and more dots, flannel. Even BABY themed fabric.
This is the fabric I told you about. I am using it for the sashing and the back of my t-shirt quilt. Cute huh? Kind of kiddie but I like it.
Well… That does it for my Shopping Sprees. I think I have done my part in getting the economy moving.
What have you purchased lately? Do tell.
