Oh never mind - I seem to be doing just fine by myself. I seem to be able to get into all the trouble I need without your help - but thanks anyway.
I needed some neutrals for the BOMs that I've started - so off I went - to find some neutrals. First stop - found one - second stop found four - and then - look out!!!
I found some tone-on-tones for the Grandmother's Flower Garden. I try not to make too many of the same color "flowers" so I'm always on the lookout for more T-O-Ts - and just look what I found!!! Quarter yard cuts of each one.
Don't you just adore those swirlies - I can wait to cut into them and make some "flowers". And I bought them with our daughter standing right there with me - she was busy talking to her dad and never even noticed the fabrics I was picking - and they are for her quilt too.
And this lovely piece of music fabric - I don't know what I'll do with it but we all agreed it was too cute to leave all of it on the bolt. Got 1 1/2 yards of this.
And then I had to cruise through the JoAnn Fabrics still 90% off christmas stuff - and found the cutest santa. He has a spring inside him and you can push down on his head and he crumples up and then you let go and he springs up and jumps. When our kids were little - oh so many years ago - they had a monkey like this - with a spring - and he was called Jumpy Monkey - and now next year the grandsons will have a Jumpy Santa.
We picked up a few Fisher Price Little People and animals at Goodwill - and a basket to carry them in -
And a big tractor and wagon and horse - all Fisher Price Little People -
and a safari hut for them to live in - with two birds -
and some wooden clothespins to make people out of - the old fashioned looking kind - and some wooden balls just because they came in the same package as the clothes pins - things to go in the boys' craft basket -
and another woven checked tablecloth to make napkins out of. I've had several requests to make napkins for others - and since I have so much fun shopping for tablecloths at Goodwill, I am happy to make more napkins for whoever wants them. They save on paper and look so pretty.
I had so much fun!!
