Shopping and Thrifting Luck

Alice had a day off and was not raining so we met up for a day out.
We went to Bella's Quilt Shop which had a sale going on.
Needed some border fabrics. Found some that will work great on the 50% sale table!
Love that when it happens!
They hve moved to a new location and I had not been there yet.
Is a bit bigger than place they had before but two bridges further away from me now.
Super close to Alice now! Could be a bad thing....hahhhaaa!

We left there and went out for lunch.
With our tummy's full we decided to go junk'n!
This is 14 yards of fabric from a CHKD Thrift Store. Came out to $1.35 a yard!
Top two pieces are headed for some warm weather tops.
The others are nice cottons for backings!
I also picked up a pair of capris and a summer top!

Such a happy day out we enjoyed!!
Thanks for a wonderful day out Pal o Mine!
Was much needed fun and laughter!!!
 Hope we have more such days ahead with the warmer weather.

 I told Alice I need to sew up some (3) I Spy quilts for some little ones. I have bought a few quarter yards along with trying to 'locate' my bag of I Spy fabrics I have 'filed away' somewhere in this sewing room! Well she said she would bring me some fabrics to use.
Holy Fat Quarter Bat Gal!!! Look at this tote full!
I do not think the squares I will cut from this pile will put much of a dent in it!!!
Me thinks Alice needs to make another I Spy quilt too...;-)

Our Little Jay Bird

Our great grandson Jay, turned one yesterday!
He is a doll baby!

Sadly we do not get to spend as much time with him as we would like too.
They do not live close.
We hope to spend some time with all the family this summer.
His Mama was our first grandchild we spoiled rotten! 
No regrets would do them all if we could!!!

Great Grand 2 is on the way!!
Also we have a grandson who is engaged!
Time keeps marching on!!!

I have done a wee bit of sewing. Not as much as I would  have liked to get done though!
Hope to be back on the sewing wagon in a few more weeks!
I go to hospital next Tuesday for some surgery.
Hope to come home next day but will see how it goes.
Praying and hoping all goes well and recovery time is fast!
Have things to do, places to go and people to see!!;-)
