My day on Wednesday...

I don't go out much. I'm pretty much a homebody now a days compared to my earlier years... Boy I am making me sound old and I'm not yet 50, but I have become a homebody... Anyway, point is, when one of the kids or DH has car trouble, I am the first to be without a vehicle, and I am not impressed with that situation on a day when I have my quilt groups to go to!!!
You understand I am sure... 8-)

Thanks to my DD1 she made arrangements so her ma could do her outing, and thanks to DD2 I had a car! I got to the quilt shop to do my "shopping", to the hairdressers to get my haircut, and to my CCC quilt group! Yay!!! 8-)

Here are my purchases. Potato fabric to make a potato bag (and some for gifts) for cooking potatoes in the microwave... And my 3 fabrics that I needed for the borders on my Hollyhocks... Stupid thing is though, is that Myra doesn't look past her nose to see she also needed fabric for binding the quilt! Duh!
Another shopping trip... maybe? Will check leftovers and stash...
Here are the fabrics along side the Hollyhocks...
There was some sew, show & tell at CCC too! This is Pg's second bag like this. Pattern by Maple Island Quilts, "Wallet & Grommet". Love the fabrics P! 8-)
This is De's Quilt-as-you-Go she had made for her daughter a while back. She was doing some maintenance work on it because it has been well loved... 8-)
Our Vf is into making these wonderful neck-warmers...
Here are the ones she made for Pg and Yn! Looking good V! 8-)
Will make a Wonky Bits show & tell post later...
Much to show, and an update on my Fur-Girls!
Myra
PS: I put a different photo of the snowman in the previous post that blows up bigger, for a better look... In case you are interested...

I feel your pain about car issues. I've been without a car since my husband was in an accident with his truck. Until the insurance company settles the claim, he's driving my car to work everyday. If I want the car I have to get up at 5 AM to take him to work...ugggh.

I'm so glad you could get out when you needed to~ I am always the one left carless too. ;-) Love the border fabrics! The neck warmers look wonderful. And the snowman wallhanging in the previous post is very cute! Thanks for all the inspiration!
