Idea, Thinking, Thoughts...& 2 Days Left For The Give Away
My mind has been spinning with ideas, desires and plans. I would love for you to join myself, Cornwoman, Kg, Knotty in the UFO Challenge. This challenge has no rules, no expectations that are not made by yourself and NO judgement. Just click on the Flicker 2013 UFO's tab at the top of the blog and register. Anytime you finish a UFO in 2013 post the photo so we ALL can be inspired and encouraged! Cornwoman has already started a conversation which is one of the best part of this challenge is we can TALK to each other, give each other kudos and just support one another.
I also was thinking about the local quilt shop. How depressing it would be if your local quilt store closed?! I personally would be so depressed if any one of the local quilt stores closed...and I have several to choose from! But, there are a lot of places where you have only one...or, it's in the next town. With "my" economy what it is...which, right now is non-existent, I still want to make sure my local quilt stores keep open. Given that I am cutting down on my spending and trying to use my stash...I will still need "some" quilting supplies. So, rather than just shop at the big box I am going to budget, spend less but make sure if I am looking for something specific and the quilt store carries it...I am going to buy there. Sure, there is a lot of stuff at JoAnn's and Hancocks that the local quilt stores don't carry...so, I will still be supporting them...but, if the quilt store has it I am going to purchase it from them. "Spend less but Spend in Support of the Local Quilt Store!" That will be my motto for 2013!
I thought I would share some photos from December...get a load of this awesome cabinet! Marla, who moved from back east didn't have a spot for it in her new Bend home. Yes, it is coming to live at my house!!!! Thank you Marla!!!
I also received this awesome Crumbler Miss Rosie template from Kathie and I am definitely going to be using this with my Civil War fabrics! Thank you Kathie!!!
Hard to believe this little guy was in my Christmas stocking. Lemon flavored chapstick from HH...such a sense of humor. You actually have to open his rear...and the lip balm is in there...hummm. He thinks he is funny.
I am in love with The Talking Crow! This little gem arrived last week and is perfect for a Woolie's sewing room. I am so impressed with Linda's workmanship...check it out, you'll be amazed!
You only have 2 days to leave a comment on the Christmas Day post that you are interested in the Give Away and I'd appreciate if you signed up to be a follower of the blog. Best Wishes!
