I met Andrea, another blogger (check out her great ideas on her blog) at a new quilt store near us. Afterwards, we stopped a two thrift stores near there. At one, we found several bags of folded fabric in the domestics bin. Whoopee!!! 99 cents a bag! I bought 12 bags. It's all washed and several large pieces have already been donated to Quilts of Valor earlier today. This was all quality quilting fabrics from name company's. I left the floral fabrics, since we can't use them for soldiers quilts. My favorite was a large cream piece with tiny fishing lures in green. It will be great in our quilts. When I get my camera back out, I'll show you the 'real' reason Andrea and I met up.
This is a 'sewing' week for me. Last night was one of my guild meetings. Great bunch of ladies, even if we are small in number. Today was Quilts of Valor. Wednesday, a lady is driving from another state to see my 'herd' of vintage sewing machines (wow, I have a 'herd' now). On Thursday is our weekly sew-in at one of the LQS's. I'm also trying to finish the hand quilting on one of my Halloween table runners.
