    What's Grab a roos? I might need one.
    I might need one too
    I think grab-a-roos are the flexible rubber discs (about half dollar size) that you use to pull your needle through the layers when hand quilting.

    I went to a yard sale this morning with my husband. I had seen it listed and could not wait to get there. And what a goldmine. I could have spent 100's. She had lots and lots of quilting fabric and quilting stuff. Also a Bernette and a serger, which were both in great condition. My poor husband looked around and saw there was nothing for guys and then proceeded to wait patiently. I told him he could wait in the car. He did. I found some very pretty Asian stuff and gorgeous floral flannel. I bought 21 bucks worth, because that was all the cash I had with me. Then we left and we went for breakfast, and stopped at the bank. Then back I went and bought 30 bucks more fabric. I got mostly tonals that time.

    I am so excited that I found the floral flannel. I bought a rag quilt pattern a few years ago, but never found the right fabric. This is not exact, but it will work and be beautiful, I think. There is plenty to do the front I hope. Nine an a half yards of variety. I just need to find the stuff for the back. Might use regular cotton for that.

    Anyway, I blew my whole yard sale budget at one place, but it was great fun.

    Well, today I received my 12" square-up ruler, Kaleidascope ruler, and a Kwik Klip (since I left blood on the last quilt from a pin prick) from Quilt in a Day. Do the blocks from the I Spy swap count I received today? That was all for today.
