    I've purchased these over the past several days for a variety of projects.

    First, fabric for bookmarks kids will be interested in. Plus, I'll use lots of these once I find out what my students' interests are. There's a close up of the words on the one... how perfect is that for a bookmark back? :lol: These are all from Joanne's.

    These two are from a fabric place at a huge craft sale, called the Windmill (http://www.thewindmill.com/). I went this past Saturday and today.

    This one is to make into pillow cases for my daughter for Christmas. She loves to camp/backpack. Only $5 a yard.

    This one is for a wall hanging for my in-laws. My mil asked if I'd make a wall hanging for a bare spot. Since they make wine and are Italian, I thought this might be fitting. :wink: I hope she likes it. I'll check before I use it.

    I thought you'd like to see the dish towels I bought at The Windmill.

    For my mil...

    For my daughter, who's hoping to be out of a dorm and into her own apartment next semester.

    And for me. :wink:

    I think my fabric from Bonnie Blue's sale, for the borders and back of hubby's CW quilt are due in tomorrow. I'll post those when they come. Although, I start back to school tomorrow (students start Thursday) so it might take a bit.

    Not flannel, but very very soft. I can't find the maker on it anywhere... I just love it and wish I'd bought more--as usual. :roll:

    Love your fabrics and towels Karla. I have that sunflower pattern on your white towels on my Viking em. machine. I put the long stem daisies on the back of a denium jacket I found at the thrift store for $4.oo. Have fun with the book markers, the kids will love the fabrics you chose.

    Looks like you've been busy and staying out of trouble! Don't you just love JoAnn's sales? My hubby and two daughters just gave me $90 worth (combined) of JoAnn's cards for my birthday. I'll probably wait to use them until the next sale (Halloween? Veteran's Day?)

    Very nice. I also have some of the white background with blue and tan doggie footprints. Do you have plans already, or did you just say "I like it" and get some?
