Some days you walk into Half Price Books and walk out empty handed. Not this time! I LOVE the Strips and Strings book! What wonderful ideas for our charity group. I wish I had more time for quilting! I paid a whole .75 for the quick quilts magazine!
Did ya' know that Simply Quilts is back on HGTV? Reruns but how nice it is to get that 7 a.m. quilting fix again. I may not love Alex Anderson but I do love my morning fix!
My girlfriend is off in Austin spending my money on fabric and I cannot wait to get it and touch it for myself. We have one quilt shop in our city that has the tone of fabrics I like. Unfortunately the owner is less than perfect and most of my friends refuse to patronize her shop. After many, many months of not going in, I decided to cross the threshold. Well, I shouldn't have bothered. I am extremely put off when noone can be bothered to say hello! The place is only the size of a peanut so it's not like I was lost in a cavernous place. I walked past the owner (in the front of the shop) and she couldn't even say hi. Yes, she was with a customer but hello or a head nod is not rude. I was in the store a full 10 mins before she HAPPENED to walk past me and say hello. URGH! When you add the other rude encounters I've had in the place, I have decided to join the ranks of those that would rather shop on the internet than go into that shop. I can be treated impersonally anywhere. Enough of that!
I'll try to post more of my banners soon. I forgot to take pictures.
