I was looking for a new home for Mickey Depre's book Pieced Hexies Deux and URSULA YEO is our winner! YEAH! Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and send me your address so I can mail it out to you!!
I got SO many wonderful suggestions for recipients of charity quilts. What was so remarkable about your comments is that just about everyone is in the habit of donating quilts to some organization. I found that so incredibly impressive. I truly am thinking that maybe my word for the year will be DONATE. I have already started dispersing my quilts, having sent out at least 6 or 7 so far to be donated to patients in a Texas hospital where one of my blogging friends works!
You ask why would I go shopping when I'm trying to get rid of stuff? Very good question!! ;-)
I didn't do a whole lot of damage but I do want to share with you what I found:
this is the fabric I bought! I found a binding for my two Quilts of Valor, so that was exciting, as well as a couple of other prints for another one. I also got some very cute Riley Blake fabrics for my Triangle Gatherings quilt, although the fabric was supposed to be for the Vintage Farmgirl quilt.
If anyone sees any of these fabrics that they HAVE to have a strip or two of, please let me know. I'm sure I will have plenty so that I could spare a little bit and happy to send it off!
I got a couple of kits and patterns. Rosie's had a Superbowl sale on patterns so I got one half off! And as it happened, Primitive Gatherings had 20% off most of their things because it was their 2 yr anniversary in California. And heaven knows I need another pattern like I need you-know-what!! I think I will start donating patterns next!
I recently saw this on Facebook done all in red and white with buttons in the centers. It was adorable! I just love PG's wools. Their hand-dyes are just gorgeous! So that justified my purchase. [we can convince ourselves of anything, right??] Oh, I may have gotten another one!
I seem to be in the snowman mood!
These chickens were just so adorable I couldn't pass up this pattern!
This is the pattern for the quilt I want to make and bought the red/white fabrics.
On another note, I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with Cheri Payne's blog and patterns but she creates wonderful patterns that she gives away freely. She has recently been sick and was just diagnosed with cancer. I'm hoping she will recover but I wanted to remind everyone to be mindful of your health! If you're not feeling well, please get seen by a medical professional. If you do that but aren't getting better, please get a second opinion!!
We have so many quilts to make and things to do with our lives, we need to make sure we're around long enough to get it all done!!!
