    Wink I'm a happy girl!

    This President's Day weekend has been fun.

    Friday, I won several online auctions for some great Moda charm packs I've had my eye on.

    Saturday, DH encouraged me to go to a LQS about 40 minutes away (which isn't that far, considering where I live!) and spend some time building up my stash. I came away thinking I had found my LQS "home."

    Sunday, I made two jelly roll race tops, and yes, ripped out the seam on that binding I sewed on wrong a week ago.

    Today, I need interfacing for some Kindle covers, so I went off to JoAnn since I'm prior military and would get a 20% discount instead of just the 10%. I was waiting in line for cutting, and wandered over to the sewing tables. They had one for $269, which looked like it would work in my small space. Then I realized it was on sale for $161. And then I asked if I could use the 20% off for the table and the cashier said yes, so I became the owner of this:

    http://www.joann.com/sew-essentials-...e/xprd1134127/

    It's a big step up from the wobbly folding banquet table I have been using!

    Best part is, I saved $187 and spent less than $170 for the desk, 10 yards of fabric, interfacing, thread and some odds and ends I need for the Kindle covers. I just realized that I need a proper cutting mat too (mine is only 12 inches), so I'm having hubby stop and get me a big one on his way home tonight. Let's hope the rest of the week goes so great!

    LOL. He will be until I take over the bedroom - and if he keeps sending me to the LQS, that's going to happen way sooner than later!

    Wow, lucky girl! Nice cabinet. Pick out a couple of quilts you want to make and cut out pieces. That will free up room and you will have something to work on when you find a few spare minutes. I started doing that this year and seem to be getting more quilting done than in the past. Those few minutes add up quickly.

    First, Thank You for your service to our country! I am so happy you were rewarded with 20% off. I got free shipping last night and thought that was wonderful. Good call on the sewing desk. It is so nice when our husbands understand our addictions! Enjoy your new purchases!

    T-Anne, I'm not sure if it's an all te time discount; it was noted in my Presidents Day sales email so it might ave just been for the holiday.

    We got the table put together and it is now upstairs. I'll go tomorrow to get a couple of shelves for the wall and get everything organized. The hubby likes the table a lot. He wanted to know what I was going to use the swing out side for, since I didn't have another machine. I told him I thought I'd make it a place to iron. He looks at the box, sees the photo with a serger and says "why don't you get one of those things?" He is such an enabler!
