Coming Clean




I took a little trip up island to Naniamo to visit a quilt shop called Snip and Stitch who had their annual tent sale on yesterday.  There was a lot less fabric left because Sweet P - aka Paulette had been there ahead of me.  No, I don't NEED anything she said.  Well head over to her blog and find out what she didn't need   !http://sweetp-paulette.blogspot.com/.

I needed to be a good girl because near the end of August I am going to the APWQ ( Association of Pacific West Quilters ) Show in Tacoma, Washington with the Victoria Quilt Guild so I must save my quilting money for that.

I did buy some fat quarters which ranged from $1.59 to $1.99 that will work well for my Farmer's Wife project and because I had a coupon for 30% off of reg priced items I found a GO! die and rack that was calling my name.  I didn't overspend but came home pleased with my finds.














My quilting buddy found this book while there and purchased it for me for an early birthday gift.  I was so pleased as I love Scrappy!  It is the  All Time Favorite Scrappy Quilts book from That Patchwork Place.  Lucky me.  What a fun day and to add to your fun there is a giveaway going on at "Sew Fun Quilts" so take a peek and see what you could win.  http://sewfunquilts-sewmeow.blogspot.com/2011/08/heywanna-win-free-giveaway.html

Have a great Sunday everyone.

I laughed out loud when you said to go to Paulette's blog and see what she didn't need! :)
