    this is a fun thread! I'm making a "scrap" (Ha!) quilt out of batiks but wanted to fill in gaps so I bought $70 worth of 1/8 yd strips and spent hours organizing my collection. Too fun!

    Well, we stayed home today, been snowing last night and windy so hubby had to use the snow blower to clean out the driveway. I'm tired of snow in Indiana.

    Have fun buying your cool stuff and let us know.

    Happy Quilting!

    Doesn't sound like there is a recession in the quilting industry!

    Today I was at JA's and bought some rulers - the square up triangle I read about here, the square in a square, and the F & P add a quarter inch.

    A neighbor gave us a slab of salvaged solid surface counter top that is going to become a sewing table. Today I finally found the perfect thing to go under it - right height, on casters, has a drawer, will hold the serger - perfect! And they were on clearance on line, thank you very much!

    Have an order of books due from Amazon any day. Fun, fun, fun!

    I bought the 1/4" slotted ruler at Joanns. Need to buy some thread from AtlantaThreadCo when I have time to make a phone call.

    If you can't find anything, you can use the coupon on rulers. There are so many different kind of rulers these days. You could also use it on batting or InsulBrite if you make pot holders or hot pads.

    Today I went thrift store shopping with some friends and my husband who were all looking for books. We went to 5 stores and I came home with 20 yards of quilting cotton fabric for a total price of $15!!!! The smallest piece is 1 yard, the largest is 4 yards. I'm still smileing.

    I hit Walmart's today to get dog food etc. but I NEVER leave without checking the $1.50 fabric. I'm getting ready to put up a flannel board to arrange blocks. Came across a boly of deep beige with 3 1/2'. Perfect! I tink the darker color will show up the quilt blocks better. I tried a small piece of white but didn't like it. Any comments?

    I really can spell bolt and think. Cut my index finger pretty deep on my left hand and my typing isn't what it should be. I'm also left handed.
