quilting friends...

Grateful and lucky! That is how I feel, after spending a lunch time and trip to our local quilt shop with my work quilting friends! We had such a wonderful time. We first had show and tell about what we were working on, from pink and yellow lemonade quilts, to red, white and blue flag quilts, to chocolate cherry nine patches. Fun! A wonderful salad followed, then a trip to our quilt shop. Bargains galore! Including $2/yard fabric. We each bought enough for a quilt back. The above fabric is my bounty, given to me by one of my friends, who was getting rid of fabric. All kinds/varieties in the fun stack!


And, it is a short time until my 100th post! Wow, I stuck it out for 100 posts, and have enjoyed so much from all you wonderful quilting friends. So I will be having a giveaway associated with that post, please stay tuned. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, re-energized for the week ahead. I am working 5, 12 hour shifts in a row, so look out! I will be crazy tired for sure...:)

2.00 a yard for fabric in a quilt store ,oh I only wish we had that in Canada .
That a lot of hours to be putting in ,good luck.

I am soooo envious $2.00 a yard it would kill you to pay what we pay in Oz.

Wow, such a great bargain, fabric shopping is so much fun! I've posted my first four "Be attitudes" blocks if you'd like to see them :-)

What fun! ~ the quilty part. Work is your contribution to others. Healing is a grand calling!

Be good to yourself during this next schedule.

It is always fun to shop for fabric with friends, and $2.00 fabric would make it even that much more fun!

I know how you feel with those kind of hours I work in a oil refinery and when we are in a turn-around mode. I work 7-12's not fun. I will be watching for the giveaway...I got some great responses from your sunbonnet post that I posted thanks for getting me motivated:)

Linda said...

Wow! Working enough? Make sure to do find what little time you can to nap! :)
Great sale! Love finds like that!
Your fabric booty is great! Love the marbleized (spell check!) pink! Oooo... is that batik on the back side in purple? And... maybe a little Christmas fabric hiding? I am sure you will have a great time working with them! Great to have a friend who shares!

Isn't it soooo much fun going out with your quilty friends to do quilty things! I find it very inspirational. Yikes...5 twelve hour shifts! You'll need sleep after those days are done. I will be looking forward to your 100th post...Go Girl!
