    Oh yes ... I will always make a purchase of some sort, whether it be staples such as Best Press? needles? or something frivolous and not-needed, such as fabric! There's always something a quilt er "just absolutely needs" ... isn/t there?

    Yesterday I spent the day washing, ironing and folding all the new material I purchased for my stash. I went looking for blues on three different shopping ventures for the third Mystery train POST # 606 http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...203100-61.html and ended up spending lil over 400.00 on tonals and blenders of all colors to add to my collection. Will finish ironing and folding today. Then I will work on Christmas gifts today. Have a great day all.

    Jen
    Have an awesome day!

    Isn't it fun to treat yourself to new stash fabric?
    ... I always say, "for inventory" when I buy extra yardage beyond the rewuired, and/or there's no specific plan!!

    I checked your link and saw some Beautiful Blues ... though was hoping to see the whole scoop!
    Photo here, Please!

    I'm gone for the next couple of weeks ... so hope you'll share a pic here before I'm back!
    Any new Patriotic fabrics?

    Yes I did pick up some Red and Blue blenders so I guess those can be considered an addition to my Patriotic Fabrics. I still have a huge basket full to iron and wrap on to boards. Possibly might get some more ironing done today. I will take a picture of all the new fabrics once I have them all wrapped onto boards nicely. Im thinking I will have to pay a visit to the dollar store to pick up some more board material for all the new fabrics. I have removed some large print and Theme specific materials from boards I already have made that can be tucked into totes as it is not very universal. This way I can organize my fabrics by color on the shelves. Probably need to buy another bookcase also.

    Today is DH and my wedding anniversary, he has all day plans for me, so not much getting done in the now dubbed "Sewing Loft"
    Have an awesome day!

    ??? for anyone who might know. Does Quilts of Valor accept quilts made RWB in Firefighter fabrics or only USA RWB for soldiers???

    Hello Dublb, FMQ, great fun! How many miles of thread did you use? Great little quilt, love the postcard design.

    Sorry I haven't been posting here, ladies. Happy late anniversary, Jenniky!

    There is a growing pile of quilt sandwiches here...

    Thanks Muv. I know I could have done those straight lines w/a walkin' foot but I needed the FMQ practice. I did learn that I can go forward & backward w/the straight lines but, sideways wasn't quite so good. I fell in love w/this fabric last spring but had no real use for it, so ta PL it goes.

    Hello Muv and Thank you.. have missed your posts.
    Dublb sounds like you had lots of fun and learned a great deal about FMQ. So what are you working on at home.. are you going to work on the flag kit at home? I of course am back to having ten thousand projects going on at once. I am trying to get one Christmas ornament done with in the next week so I have it ready to share when Quilt E gets back. Im making a Christmas ornament (with some Canadian fabric pieces Quilt E sent me some time back for Monty which is still in progress) for my Christmas tree this year in gratitude of all of my new Candian friends or should I call ya all Canucks?? LOL I think Im getting hockey confused with it all.
    Have an awesome day!

    Glad you had a good time dublb and pleased that it was productive. Some child will be thrilled.

    Good to hear from you Muv.

    Hope the anniversary was a good one Jenniky. Hubby keeps sounding like a keeper. I'm really looking forward to your Christmas ornament. I have all sorts of ideas going through my head about what it will look like. On behalf of QuiltE and myself, we are honoured to be represented on your tree and we are proud to call you an honourary Canadian. Personally, I think Canucks are locked-out hockey players, but that's just me.

    I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack!

    Jenniky ... Woohooo!!! a Canadian Christmas tree decoration. How sweet you are to honour W4Me and myself. ITA with her that you are our honourary Canuck. As for those hockey players .... there's always another year! And a Happy Belated Anniversary to you and MrJenniky! Everytime you tell us more about him, I can see how special he is. What a grand day for the two of you. Could only have been trumped if he'd taken you to the LQS and said, spend all you want Honey!!

    DublB ... cute little quilt and good for you for practicing your FMQ and then sharing it with PL. Looking forward to seeing your Texas flag quilt.

    Muv ... a Big Hello to you! Your pile of quilt sandwiches, is that your Coronation Quilt?

    Hello QuiltE, The pile of sandwiches are THE quilt, but I've just run short of wadding and the border fabric. I'm expecting it to be delivered on Monday. So in the meantime I have been having a bit of a change doing a doll quilt for the DQ swap, and I ran up a dress yesterday which was tremendous fun - have a look at this blog www.sewscrumptious.blogspot.co.uk You will all wish you were there.

    Oh dear ... I hope you have no problem in getting the additional wadding and fabric.
    What a great day it must have been yesterday ... and what a unique concept, A Sewing Cafe!!
    And complete with a vintage machine, just for YOU!
