    My husband took me on an early Mother's Day shopping adventure. We drove over to Salem, Oregon via Santiem Pass what a beautiful drive. First stop was Craft Warehouse where I got a bundle of 12 FQ's and a grab bag and some glass thingy. Next it was off to Kohl's for some new shirts and a pair of jeans and a cute pair of flip flops. And I even got a $10.00 coupon for this weekend. Then south to Eugene where we went to the Goodwill store, I couldn't believe it, a bag of remnants was 30 bucks and it wasn't even a big bag. I was so disappointed. So we headed to Joann's, were I perked up and bought 3 yards of fabric some thread and my husband found me some cute buttons with peace signs on them. And a McCall's Quilting magazine which had a free cd that has 10 scrappy quilt designs.

    Always, my sister always

    I sign all my quilts with a peace sign, everything else I make has a peace sign charm on it.

    The glass thingy is a witch ball- hung in the windows of early New England houses to ward off evil spirits. Enjoy!

    Plant a bush of rosemary by the gate as well, just to be on the safe side! :mrgreen:

    What a nice hubby. And what a haul you got. I just started hitting the Goodwills and haven't found any fabric yet, but sure have noticed their high prices on other things! Not fare!

    Wow, what a great guy you have. Hey, that black cat fabric you got, would you tell me how much you have and if you might be interested in selling that piece? I have one lonely fat quarter of the same fabric and my friends little girl loves cats and that piece of material and would love a quilt make out of it, but I can never find anymore like it.
    I will pay shipping of course.
    Let me know, Thanxs
    I do not have a DH, nor do I have any kids, so this is one holiday that just passes me by. lol

    CHawk, you'll appreciate this. I sign everything with peace signs, too. When my DGD was about 6 years old she found my key ring which has a rhinestone (read gaudy) peace symbol dangling from it. She says: Oh Grandma these are so out of style-you need to get a new keychain. I looked at her and said (me, the great philosopher LOL) Peri, peace never goes out of style. Got the typical rolling of the eyes look.
    Fast forward to last month, she's 13 and shows up with peace sign earings and peace signs all over her purse. She says to me: Grandma Peace never goes out of style. Do you believe she actually remembered me saying that to her?
