I am linking this totally quilty post to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching linky HERE! Come see what other slow stitchers of all types are posting!!!
I have had several quilty acquisitions since I last blogged.. and I am loving being an empty nester... no kids to divert funds to!!! hahaha :)
Last week I sold a computer locally .. I had bought it last year for my daughter but she turned her nose up to it and told me finally I should just sell it.. so I did! lol Turned out the lady who bought it is a QUILTER!!! She admired my hand quilted wall hangings and the quilt on my frame waiting to be quilted.... then a couple days later I found this lovely Christmas bag filled with Vintage Quilting Goodies!!!
Inside each box is a divided top section that is removable and leaves a nice area for a project.
Then there was the sign... all these items quickly found a place in our home...
And below is 2 of the 3 boxes... they have found a home on the bar.. the smallest one found a place near CJ's toys so he can figure out how it works! :)
Then I also ordered a fat quarter lot from a range of fabrics called "Button Tree Lane" by Henry Glass...
So I am currently feeling very pleased with my acquisitions... I spent just under $30 total on everything and the garage sale will have NEW fabrics being shown next weekend... I was invited back by my new friend before the sale starts to look around :D! Yippeeee!!!
So as my honey enjoys seeing me happy with these new acquisitions he wonders how I will utilize these new things when I have several projects going already... well I found this quote and I think maybe it will help him understand that for a relatively small amount of outlay in cash I have lots and lots of inspiration and happiness now!
My main focus in quilting has been hand quilting to finish Starlight ... Starbright!
I finished the 7th block....
Follow me on facebook if you like to see more frequent progress than I show on my blog... you can find me as "Kathi B. Clower"... my profile pic is a pic of me and this quilt in the background too! lol
To keep things honest please comment here if you plan to friend me there ... that way I know there is a connection without having to look at how we know each other! lol
Thanks for stopping in... make sure this happy day to ...
