    Last weekend my hubby was sitting next to me when I was looking at fabric panels for pillows. He found one he really liked. Well it was a bit spendy for the panels and he said maybe another time. I went and did my shopping run on the goodwill and Salvation army yesterday. I went for the fabric right away and low and behold they had the panels that my hubby wanted! I only paid .99 cents for both of them. My hubby is in Wisconsin for his work this week and was thinking about it be nice if my hubby would stop at a garage sale or two and buy me a box of fabric.....naaaa he would never do that. WeLL he did buy me a box of fabric just because those 2 same panels were in the top of of the box! I am just shocked and lost for words.

    Isn't it wonderful when things just fall into place like that? How great.

    I had seen some beautiful flower panels someone here had made a quilt with. They had stated where they got them and when I went to look there were no more. :( Lo and behold, at our next guild meeting the vendor had them. I paid more than 99 cents, but not a bad price and I just love them.

    Hope to see pics of your pillows.

    Yes, please show us when you are done. I have a lot of older pillow panels of varying sizes that need to be used up.

    WOW! Your DH is meant to have these pillows with the panels he likes. :-P How kind and thoughtful of him to keep his eyes open at yard sales for you! He just wants you to be happy and vice versa. :thumbup:

    What a great find for both you and your DH & you were destined to have those panels. I know you are both going to really enjoy them! Can't wait to see them.
