This is my SECOND post this morning…lost the first one (I NEED to remember to SAVE once in awhile!!)…and let me tell you it was a GOOD post too…I was witty and funny, gave out some really good info, had great pictures…is it in me to do it all over again? I doubt it… but I will give it my best shot…after I give myself one more kick in the pants!! SAVE…I have got to SAVE!!
Yesterday, while hubby washed the RV, I snuck off to ‘run errands’…I didn’t fool him for a minute…it was my fist full of JoAnn’s coupons that gave me away!! Eureka! I had hit the Mother Lode…a bunch of 50% off coupons plus a 25% off the entire order!! Let me tell you I was clicking my heels!
Ohhh man, I have missed JoAnn!! I was ohhhing and ahhing all items of interest as I went up and down each aisle! She was having a 70% off all Christmas items so I spent a long time peruse those things! Flannel was 60% off…$2.57 a yard…plus another 25% off!! Eureka!! Mother Lode…who said there was no more gold in these Californian hills? NOT ME!!
Check out that huge bag of flannel…why so much, you ask??
Well…Sharon over at Sharon’s Fabrics Blog gave a fantastic tutorial on how to make mitered baby blankets using two different flannel fabrics!! This tutorial has been sitting in my Pinterest Baby Board forever!! Now I can break out the flannel!! Except I didn’t buy enough…dang!! But not to fret…JoAnn sent me MORE coupons this morning…(it’s like SHE KNEW!!?) SEW it looks like I’m heading back to JoAnn’s for more Flannel!! Work…work…work!! It’s such a dirty job!
Hey, while I was strolling up and down the aisles of JoAnn’s humming Christmas music…oblivious to all around me, I was brought back to reality by a blog lurker…YES…A BLOG LURKER!! (insert Jaws’ music here…) Brenda from Alberta, tapped me on the shoulder to ask if I was Paulette…? I felt like a deer in the headlights! BUSTED! Seriously it’s always nice to meet readers from ‘out there’…Brenda was sew nice, very friendly and VERY sweet and from Canada!! You HAVE to be SWEET to follow SWEET P…right? Anyway she had her hubby in tow…and he was helping her pick out fabric! WHAT?? My hubby has not crossed the threshold of any QS…except to use the washroom! Here I thought it was a Hubby free zone!! Men not allowed!! AND it looked like he knew what he was talking about!! Go figure! Anyway, it was SEW nice to talk to you, Brenda…and I hope our paths cross again and soon!! There’s always room for another quilter at The Clubhouse!
So while I toil away…work, work, work… my friend, Claire has been PLAY, PLAY, PLAYING with something NEW!! No UFOs for her! Check it out…
Is this not going to be the cutest Pillow?!! It’s a punch needle pattern by Sawn Williams from Threads That Bind and it’s called ‘Christmas Eve’! Dang sweet! Claire will show and tell when it’s finished…won’t you, Claire? :o) Maybe on Christmas Eve…no pressure or anything…:o)
So that’s it for today…It’s Wednesday… that means that I am off to my first Clubhouse Quilting day!! Yahooo!! Back in the saddle again….
Have a wicked Wednesday and thanks for popping in on me!!
