What a day!

I had such a fun day today! I went out with my friend to Acorns and Threads, the needlework shop and picked up some charts and fabric for upcoming exchanges, it was great! My friend hasn't stitched for years, she picked up a small kit to try it again, I hope that she will start up again :) We then went to Fabric Depot, a huge fabric store out here. All of their fabric was 40% off, so I went crazy! I will be starting a Trip Around the World quilt for my cousin now. I am doing it in purples, greens and creams. I got 4 of each color. I still need one more purple to complete it, I just couldn't find one I liked. Here is what I bought!




I love them! I can't wait to start.

Then when I pulled up the mailman had a package for me! This is my exchange from the USEBB. My partner was Myrna, and she made me a beautiful pillow! I love it. The design is Mosey n Me, called Hearts and Flowers. Isn't it cute? Inside the package was all sorts of goodies, socks, candy, stationary. Thank you Myrna, you are so generous :D You stiched a lovely design.

40% off on fabric, how could you resist. You always save $$ when it's on sale, never mind what you ended up spending :). The pillow & gifties from Myrna are very nice.

Lucky you! Myrna is a great stitcher (I received the Quaker blue exchange from her), and a generous exchange partner. Love those fabrics you got for your son's quilt, too!
