Connie's Quilt Shop is my favorite local quilt shop. This week she is celebrating her 20th Anniversary by having a four day sale. Everything, even her sale fabric and remnants that have already been marked down, is on sale for 20% off!
Yesterday was the first day of the sale....Yes, I went shopping, and yes, I was one of the first ones in the door. =)
I love Connie. =)
Before I left, I took notes on things to look for so I wouldn't get distracted by all the eye candy in her shop. I wanted to buy wisely.
Okay, confess...Tell me I am not the only one whose quilting gloves get grungy looking? There is still some life left in them, but for when I decide to toss them I have a brand new pair waiting for me at 20% off. I love Machingers. They make a world of difference when quilting.
My stash lacks tone on tone fabrics in creams and whites. The cream was a remnant and already marked down so I got a deal at an extra 20% off.
These are bright, aren't they! Both were in the remnants bin. I bought a paper pricing pattern by Judy Niemeyer and I am beginning to collect batiks for that project.
More remnants. Gotta have polka dots!
Making the string quilts revealed how low I am on purple and orange, so a few fat quarters of those two colors was in order. I also have been wanting some black polka dots on white. Maybe to add to my string quilt?
My two sister-in-loves adore Snoopy and Peanuts. I got some yardage to make something for them for Christmas as a surprise.
The two panels of Dolly Dresses was my only impulse buy. I love them and will find a little girl or two to make something for them out of it.
My husband gave me a budget and I stayed under it. I am pretty proud of myself....
Did I mention I was going back this afternoon with a friend? I may not be staying under budget after all. *wink*
