I bought some patterns that I just love. I had seen the Cider Mill Road pattern book on Jaybird Quilts, she had been working on some of the projects in the book and I just loved them. I remembered seeing this book at one of the local quilt shops, so I went and picked it up. It was there last copy and it was on sale. I was very happy. I also loved the little pincushion patterns "Schnibbles". These are so cute, and a good way to use up small scraps.
I then bought some Kansas Troubles to add to my collection. I plan to make a quilt with these in the near future. I also bought a bundle of fabrics that I want to use for my mini quilt swap. I had bought different fabric for it...but just couldn't get inspired to use it. So I bought something different. I also needed a few pale greens, so I got 2 fat quarters of that.The night before last, my husband and I went to Chapters to look around and I bought an Australian Country Threads magazine "Stitchery edition" and a book called "Quilting for the first time". I just love the projects in this issue of Australian Country Threads. The quilting book has some cute projects in it, and a lot of really good tips. Even though I've done a lot of quilting, I've never taken any sewing or quilting classes. So, I still need tips to help me get through some issues.I've also been working on the second block of the Shabby Roses BOM. I'm almost done. Hopefully I will be done tomorrow. I'd like to get caught up on these blocks. I have block 3 ready to be stitched. I love these and can't wait to have them all done.Well, as you can see I've spent a lot of money and didn't finish any projects. Oh well!! I worked hard. So there....I hope you all have a great night. I have to work in the morning, so that's all for now.
