This is what I woke up to this morning:
It has been dark and windy and wet all day. Just in case we weren't aware that it's now November.
In spite of the weather I was feeling pretty good this morning. One of our local fabric stores is closing down soon - the owner is retiring due to poor health - so I took the opportunity to add to my stash. This isn't everything, but it's the most fun stuff that I bought.
If I had deeper pockets and had been able to stay in the store longer I could have done much more damage! I'm in love with those turquoise prints from Blank Textiles. There may be a monochromatic quilt in my future. ;- )
And in the mailbox today I found this wonderful pink yardage courtesy of V at Bumble Beans.
We did a scrap swap recently. She found a couple of scraps in the pile I sent her that excited her quilting muse. Did I have more of that print perhaps? Turns out that I did. In fact, I had almost a yard of it. It was one I liked so well that I bought a bigger piece than was usual for me at the time. But then I could never figure out how to use it! V will put it to good use, and in exchange she has sent me yardage of this print I found in the scraps she sent me. I'm thinking DH and I will both have skeleton quilts someday. :- )
