Boxing Day Shopping... NOT!

One of the highlights about not Snowbirding this year was being home for the BOXING DAY SALES!  Yup, my plan was to get up nice and early on Dec. 26th and hit the shops!  Boxing Day in Canada is like Black Friday in the States!  You can pick up some real deals, especially on Christmas paraphernalia!  I didn't anticipate getting the flu a few hours after company left on Christmas Day! :o(  Boxing Day found me in bed...when I wasn't elsewhere (if you get my drift!)

So no Boxing Day Sales for me...BUT I did manage to drag myself out on the 28th and went to TWO shops...for their leftovers!  By then the Sale had gone from 50% off to 75% off...so the few things that I found were practically FREE! :o))

Let me share...

Rusty bells, wooden snowflakes and rusty stars...

And there was one lone star left...waiting for ME!!  Happy dance!


And because I'm a quilter...I had to hit the local Red Barn Quilt Shop...where I found this lovely yellow and grey MODERN fabric...for 50% off! I am planning on making another Graduation quilt for this June and of course it has to be modern!  I will somehow grin and bear it!  haha 

I teamed it up with this lovely Kona cream fabric that I bought down south last year!  So I am all set for some sewing fun in 2016!!  I say bring her on...

Before I go, I want to THANK YOU, my readers 'out there' who read me most days!  It means a lot to me and keeps me humming along this crazy blogging life!  Would you believe that I started this blog in 2009...almost SEVEN years ago!  Time really does fly when you are having fun!  I have met such wonderful quilters along the way...and even brushed shoulders with some very famous quilt designers...not naming names or anything... but YOU know who you are! haha  All great fun... SEW I thank YOU and wish you the very best in 2016!  I hope you continue to pop in now and again to cheer me on or to tell me to get on with it... or NOT!  No swear words please!  :o)))haha

Wishing YOU ALL A WONDERFUL 2016...with a GREAT BIG New Year's HUG being sent your way!~P
