I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday, it's a damp and drizzly day here - I fell asleep last night to the sounds of a torrential downpour, it was lovely. We had perfect weather this weekend. Saturday, Cathy and I went to the American Sewing Expo, do you want to see my loot? There's not much of it, but I'm happy with it! First I bought what I always go there to get, my hand sewing thimbles.
I LOVE those thimbles. This may last me until next year. Then, there was a vendor selling books mighty cheap, I got these two...
for $9. Wow! I hadn't planned on buying any books, but couldn't resist. I also picked up some fabric to make stars for Johna'Lee, from the Quilts of Valor booth.
I told them her story, and they gave me 10% off the fabrics. Isn't that so sweet.
The show was smaller yet this year, and crowds were way down. A very sad indicator of our economy. There were some new vendors, I hope they made enough to cover their spaces.
Sunday, we helped Cathy move some more things from her old house. Thank goodness for teenage boys! I was too tired to blog or sew last night [although I mostly supervised, lol]. I'm going to get the binding on the quilts today, and try to come up with a Christmas gift - I need to decide what to make! I'll be back probably tomorrow for our link-up post. Although I just realized tomorrow is Tuesday, and that's always a busy day for me...errands and a visit to Shirley. I might be the last one this month to get my gift done!
By the way, if you're going to make stars for Johna'Lee, could you please include a dollar or two to help offset costs? She didn't ask for that, but I think it would be a lovely gesture - quilts cost money, and she's got a Herculean effort going. I don't mind asking for her!
I'll try to catch up on your blogs this week. You've all been busy, and I'm missing you!
