Today's starts and bargin...

I had some plans for a couple more "secret" projects that really weren't too firm in my mind, but today I had an "AHA" moment while looking through patterns and fabrics, thus I have made some firmer plans... YES!!! 8-)

I got this projects fabrics ironed, cut, ready to go this afternoon, and just got started with my sewing on it tonight, when I had to stop for us to go visit my parents... A last minute plan. Had a good visit!
Tomorrow I will be at it again... I'm pumped!!! 8-)
And I got other project patterns and fabrics ready for cutting this afternoon. Hoping to tackle more of that tomorrow also... 8-)
A new quilting friend, Cb, got a good deal on a whole roll of Warm & Natural (queen size width) and asked me if I wanted about 20 meters of it. What could I say? Saving $50 to $100 depending on where you buy it!?! Who wouldn't!?!?
I was needing some anyway! So Cb dropped by with it this evening, we measured it out, cut it, and I'm a happy camper! 20 meters!!!!! 8-)

Pop on over to Carrie P's blog to see her tute "Coloring on Fabric". Something I think I may try at some point! Carrie used one of Dorothy Baker's blocks, from BOM "Sweet Nostalgia", to do the tute on... By the way, the last link brings you to Dorothy's November block... I'm saving the patterns to work on when I am all caught up on my PhDs (projects half done) Dorothy! 8-)

Have a great weekend people! 8-)
