For some insane reason, I woke up this morning wanting to drive to Montgomery which is about 45 minutes away and go shopping. So I piled me and the kids into the car and headed off. Whe we got to Parisians, I returned the shirt I had bought two and half months ago and decided I didn't like it. Anyway...they were having a huge clearance sale on all their summer clothes and since it is still going to be hot here in southern Alabama for quite some time I decided to look around. My children decided to go crazy, chasing each other all over the place. After leaving the mall, they start begging for lunch - its only 10:30! So we go across the street to the quilt store. Amazingly we only stayed about 10 minutes. Nothing on the sale rack was calling me too loudly and I definately don't need any full price fabric. So off we go. We hit a furniture store that was going out of business, claiming that prices were slashed 50 to 70 %. No way. They definately had jacked up the prices so they could then claim to slash prices. Left there quickly too. Then went to McDonalds to quiet the natives. Low and behold right next store is a Hobby Lobby. Went there to check out there sale racks. Came out with 17 yards of fabric for $26 - yes..that's $1.50 a yard. Got several large pieces for backings and some blues and yellows I couldn't resist. Then we came on home and took a nap!
I think I'll go putter around in the sewing room for a while before dinner. I need to quilt a lap sized quilt of my mom's before next weekend so I can take it back to her.
Hope everyone else is getting some quilting done too!
