My dear sweet friend Crispy has asked me to share a picture of the goodies I found on my recent trip to North Carolina.
The visit to Mary Jo's was the most productive :-) We just felt that we needed to do our part to stimulate the economy. The fabric selection was huge, and I found the most delicious array of Civil War fabrics.
And I also found some Signature thread that is no longer available in our area.
I used to buy this thread all the time at JoAnn's but they no longer carry it.
Then we went to the little quilt shop in Charlotte called QBee's. I fell in love with this panel. I don't usually do many quilts with panels, but this one was made up as a shop sample and I loved it.
The red background fabric was on sale for 50% off, so it was "all missions go"!
I also could not resist this cute charm pack with a free pattern. The shop owner told us we could pick out a couple of fat quarters, so I picked out the black and white ones. It was just such a pleasant shopping experience, and if I am ever back in that area, I would plan to pay them another visit.
Now if I had time to sew and quilt, I have all the necessary fabrics and tools I would need. But this is what my days are comprised of for right now -
Working on getting my son's school records finished and submitted for last year's work.
If you have a few minutes, please pop over to my Thrifting blog as I have submitted a picture for I Heart Faces - Completely Candid Photo Challenge.
You can also visit lots of other photo blogs. There are some really great pictures on this site.
