    Went to Joanns to pick up my walking foot at lunch. And darn them, they had cottons right by the front door on clearance. I ended up with 16 different fabrics for a total of 22 1/2 yards. I paid an average of.....$1.89 a yard!!! Whoo hooo!!! At the check out they said they will have MORE on clearance tomorrow.
    The bad part, I still have the Fons & Porter sale and Quilt Expo tomorrow. My poor checking account is going to scream in pain!!

    Some will someday make it into a kitty applique quilt for a friend of mine. Not sure when or which ones. The others will become stash!

    That's the best way I've seen lately for torturing a bank account. What good deals for you!

    I remember going through Bangor, Maine one year driving back from Montreal. (We decided to drive that way to cut out the long drive through New Brunswick). Anyway we stayed a night in Bangor. Not far from our hotel was a Joanns. Looking back I wish I bought more. hmmmm I need to take a little trip to the States again.

    I remember in July 2000, when ex husband (well not at the time) and I drove to Florida and back from Nova Scotia (where we lived at the time), I met up with an online quilt friend in South Carolina. I found out later she was my Secret Sewing Sister!! Anyway, we met up and we drove to the North Carolina border to the store Mary Jo's. ooooooooooooooh I died and went to heaven!! How I would looooooooove to go back that store again!

    Went to Winterset. Went by the Fons & Porter store. Marianne was there working and taking pics with people. I forgot my camera at home. I found out exactly where the warehouse was. The town was busy, busy. There were a couple charter buses with quilters. So went to Ben Franklin. Found the Snow Show fabric I've been eyeing online for awhile now. I'll go back sometime and get that! Went to the warehouse.....OMG it was packed. I walked around the room and found out how things were working...get in line, then after things are cut, ask for the bolt, while eyeing what others have in their stacks. They had 4 people cutting and a long line at the register. It took me 2 hours of standing in lines to get out of there!!! I got what was left on all but 3 of the bolts I had. I didn't get to the quilt show today. Not enough time but one woman said she had been to 2 shows in Chicago and one in Virginia and this was by far the best she'd been too. I'll get there tomorrow.

    I had to guard the red (bottom left) with my life. Took the last 2 yrds on the bolt.
