The weekend haul
This weekend has been kind of busy for me. On Friday, we went into the city because one of our local quilt shops was having a 20% off sale, so I was able to pick up 2.5 yards of fabric for an eventual quilt back + matching pillowcases (it's the one at the bottom). I also picked up a fat quarter (pictured) and a scrap bag, even though that was cutting a bit into my fund for Saturday, I just couldn't leave them!
Then, on Saturday, things were absolutely crazy. We were driving over an hour to visit a quilt shop I hadn't been to before because they were having a 15% off everything sale. I didn't have nearly as much money as I had planned to, because of what I had bought on Friday and some other things. But I still managed to get six half-yards of fabric (my preferred amount of fabric to get when I have no idea what I'm going to be doing with it!), mostly 1930s reproductions with one modern Alexander Henry. Then, a few hours later when we finally got home from all of our errands, I got my first swap fabric in the mail! It's the farthest on the right on the top- Alexander Henry's Stable Mates. I absolutely love it. Thanks Sara!
(Wanna swap? It's so much fun! Check out my fabric for swap here on Flickr.)
And now, at last... Some rest. Just kidding. I have to clean the house and then watch the Superbowl!
