It’s another gorgeous Monday on the West Coast of Canada! The hexagon quilt is coming along…slooowwwly…I might have to start another project just to keep my sanity. I would really like to make a diamond string quilt next….we’ll see. (that is my ‘mother talk’ meaning I will probably finish off the hexagon quilt before starting something new…)
Now on to my weekend SCORE! I promised you a peak at the books I bought on the weekend at the Quilter’s Garage Sale. There must have been several hundred quilting books and magazines for sale. Like I said yesterday-I wished I had brought more money! I shouldn’t be too giddy because I think this GS was the result of a quilter’s death so…I should be a little more respectful. But if I were to ‘GO’…God forbid….what else are you going to do with my ‘stuff’. I would want my fellow quilter’s to be hyperventilating, giddy fools at my GS! Whooping it up about their finds, high 5ing each other, doing a little happy dance on my driveway….I mean I don’t see anything disrespectful in that, do you…? OK, OK, don’t do a happy dance on the dead quilter’s driveway but I see nothing wrong with a couple of “SCORES” and high 5s all round!
Most of the books that I selected are wool/appliqué or stitchery books and were $2-$3 (happy dance….ok, ok no happy dance ……but…HIGH 5’s all round!!) SCORE!
It’s a Good Thing-Hop over to Bloom for a couple of very sweet FREE stitchery patterns. Don’t you just love Free patterns! Thank you Bloom!
ALSO, Thank you, Anna from Quilt Mom’s Journey for sending me all these fantastic Aussie bloggers links. I spent all day perusing their sites-fantastic! Love their work!
