Okay..... I just want to say that finding what you want when you want it is GREAT!!!!
I went out today with Regina who first came by to view my sewing area and to give gifties... Love love love them. A roll to keep blocks flat and a place to keep all sewing items near the machine. She also gave me my "Pay it forward" but I will post that this week.
On to our venture....
Our first stop was Jamie Lynn's out near the Seneca Park Zoo. It was a blustery snowy day right from the beginning. The snow never did amount to much other than to tip the freezing temperatures that we did not notice for all we had to do was dart into stores and then back to the car. The pigeons, at first glance, we thought to be fluffin their feathers; were only fat from being fed in order to prevent them from eating the cat food as we were told but I think they eat that too. Their sale was on remnants and I was not much interested in large quantities of their selected fabrics so I bought a yard of a clearenced fabric for a dark and a 1/2 yd of a light for my "Sunny Lanes" quilt Regina and I are going to do together.
I texted Maureen/Reenie in the car to see if it was not too late to catch her at our next stop; Patricia's. She said she was on her way so there Regina and she can meet. I was on the look out for 30's fabric (Reenie and I are doing a quilt on) and more for Sunny Lanes and Red&Whites had a coupon. So..... once there I gave Reenie her winnings for my birthday giveaway and she was so excited because she said she has never won anything. That right there was the best birthday gift ever.... to make someone else so happy!!!
Here we are!!!! This was after all our purchases. The ladies there are so wonderful. I bought a ton of clearanced fabric here... 30's prints, red/white, lights and darks for SL. Almost 6yds here. Reenie headed home while we drove on to Sew Creative where Regina knows Linda from online. Here I bought 4yds of a 70% off oriental fabric to do a Japanese Knot purse or two.
About now we are starving and our brain is starting to sputter..... yep, really.
So I say "how about chinese"?, I know a little place I went to the last time I was going to Ivy Thimble.
We plowed into the Panda Express parking lot and order a very large lunch, devoured it and felt like we were going to roll away..... Hey Regina!! We did not get a fortune cookie......*pout pout*.....
Ivy Thimble is having a 30% off the entire store....clearance too. Straight away I piled up the clearance bolts to find out only 1 yd cuts... a little bit more than I wanted to cut but hey.... stash building ...lol ... I went on ahead and bought 4 yds of backing for the 30's quilt, 3yds of 30's fabric and 2 1/4 yds for SL. I think I would have bought more but I was pooping out.... all that for only $35. *big smiley face from ear to ear* From there we headed on to Target to buy Valentine goodies and to look for shoes for Nathan but no such luck there. Lastly a stop at Wegmans to buy pizza building supplies.... for Matt.
I had a marvelous day and so much fun. We must all do this more often. It is good to be with friends.
