This morning after my doctor appointment I went to her home and bought those three kits.....and got directions to her dad's where the rest of the stuff was. Well, I drove all the way there. It was out of my way. It would have been foolish to drive there and NOT buy. Right? That is my story and I am sticking to it.
This is my "haul" from two locations. Generally, I stop at a quilt shop when I go to the doctor. Kind of like getting an ice cream cone if you got a shot when you were a kid. Today I did not. I figured I had done enough already.
That double wedding ring is all pre-cut. The fabrics are 30s reproduction and it just screams MARY! The one on the left is called Williamsburg, I believe. If I pulled out the green and put a navy in, it would be very patriotic.
It is hard for me to resist a good buy on 30s stuff.....and red. I love red. I am not a fan of Sun Bonnet Sue but they are not preprinted. So, I will make my own redwork! Who doesn't need another charm pack at $3?
The reason these patterns look so red is because I was on my deck under the red umbrella. Not taking them again. I just couldn't resist the pump or the windmill. I have always loved both. The goldfish pond in my back yard recirculates through an old pump like I used until I left home.
Girl stuff is easy to find. Some day I may have grand sons.
Okay, these aren't for me. The snowman is for my aunt and patriotic is for my sister.
I think this will make a great baby quilt as will the Spring Babies on the bottom right of the first photo.
I also bought a crochet book, couple of zippers, a ring for a lanyard and that preprinted piece for practicing quilting.
Jay and Amy were both super nice people. I am glad to help them out. But they may have been nice to me because
I have to start giving people whatever I make instead of what they request. No more buying! I don't want my family to be trying to dispose of my stuff in the same way.
I understand why people have give always, now. It isn't just being nice. It is making room for more!!!
Side note: In March at retreat I said I had never bought a kit. Today I bought six!! I also ordered two last month. At least, if I get fired tomorrow, I can sew without spending a dime for about 6 months.
Keep stitchin' (it is necessary to justify the "keep buying"!)
