Celebrations of Fabric

Over the weekend, I enjoyed receiving a tantalizing manila pouch in the mail from my very dear friend, Grace. It contained two delicious cheddars by Jo Morton!! THANK YOU, Grace!!

When I opened the pouch, there was a hunk of brown lying about and I kinda liked them together, so we'll see what develops.

Saturday was the 20% off sale at the Keepsake Quilting Retail Store that I like to call, "The Mothership."

I picked out some lovely one yard rolls of precut Civil War selections for $5.99 regular price, but with the sale discount were $4.80.

Here are the rolls.

That one chintz in the middle roll was really yummy and will go for something very special!

The cut yardage was half yard hunks of some neutrals and a yard of a Judie Rothermel Inkwell red from Marcus Brothers.

The blue floral neutral right beside the red was a Barbara Brackman Union Blues for Moda.

Since I had to go directly past The Quilted Frog Quilt Shop in Weirs Beach, Laconia, New Hampshire, I stopped in for a quick visit there, too.

Owner Jodi welcomed me with a free Row by Row Experience pattern and sold me a gorgeous tan floral by Edyta Sitar for Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda.

My real celebration was because I was able to drive my own car again. That's right, "The Road Warrior" is up and running!!!! Yeehaw! My 1989 Mercury Marquis is my treasure and I've missed her for the past 2 months, so it's great to have her back.

Mr. Tipper didn't care. But as a cat, he is bound by union rules to act in a completely nonchalant manner.

Enjoy celebrating whatever is good today!

Happy sewing!

Oh... I used to live within driving distance of Keepsake. (Well, it was a long drive, but still.) I absolutely loved that store.
Your new goodies look like fun!

Beautiful cheddar from Grace.
Looks like you scored at the Keepsake sale!
We've driven past The Quilted Frog each time I have been back there, but have yet to stop in. Hopefully next time. : )

You're going to have to help this flatlander. Please let me know the name of the Jo Morton Cheddar and the Judie Rothermel fabric. I am so crossing my fingers that you have a piece with the info on them as I'm in love with them and need to add some to my collection. Thanks - Rina

Beautiful fabrics--love the Jo Morton Cheddar. I think we would enjoy shopping with each other--we have similar tastes in fabric. I drive an older model Ford Explorer and can't think about parting with it--glad your car is back
