Colorful Friday!!

Quilts & Sew Forth recently moved to a new location.  To celebrate their new opening anyone that spent $25 got a ticket to enter in drawing to be 1 of 10 people that could win a $250 gift card.  I had 2 tickets in the drawing and I was selected as 1 of the 10!!!  I was pretty excited and showed up at the store this moring at 8:30 a.m. to try and win.  I was second to pick my key, but the third lady picked the winning key.  She was pretty excited.  The other 9 each received a goody bag.  I hit the 40% off area and added to my stash.

Then I stopped at JoAnn's to buy some cording to use in a couple purses I will be making.

From there I went to Mara's Fabric and Gifts she had Moda's Northwood's Botanical on sale and I needed some for the backing and binding of my Simple Star wallhanging and Train to Grandma's

She has also added a lot to her clearance area.  I purchased 3 Robert Kaufman Fusion's for $4 a yard!!

I hope you have a very Colorful Friday!!

I need your Votes for Turkey outside my Window

I have entered another quilt in the Weekly Themed Quilt Contest.  This time it is one of my husbands favorites.  This quilt started out as an apron panel, it was then cut up and pieced using the Attic Window pattern. My husband Jim thinks its neat how it appears you are looking out the window into the backyard. I pieced it in 1993 and finally quilted it in 2007.

At one point today I was actually in the lead so please help me out!!

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Birthday Marvin!!

My dear husband Jim and I spent yesterday with his family celebrating Thanksgiving and Jim's dads 80th Birthday!! 


It was great seeing everyone and catching up even if it was only for a few hours.  Jim's youngest brother John is a great chef and treated us to a wonderful meal and even better leftovers!!
