Inspirations this Memorial Weekend

So, I took off on Saturday morning to run some errands and to try to find a flea market that I heard was in Hinkley – well, needless to say, I was lead a stray – someone really needs to clean out the interenet!  There is so much old crap on the internet that is set to autodate to current – a programmers trick, that I myself have used (Karma? Knocking on my door?) – so I made the best of a bad road trip.  I got to stop at a Quilt shop that is up that way.

BIG MISTAKE – what oath did I take this year:  No New Fabric This Year!  Well considering I broke that oath about a month after I made it, I shouldn’t feel too guilty.

So I stopped at Fabric, Fashions and More in Rush City, and they always have fun sample quilts up and this time was no different.

  • I could have taken home 8 kits, but I didn’t.
  • I could have taken home 2 books, but I didn’t.
  • I did however, bring home 2 small kits and I even started them.
  • Even better, I finished one of them, well the top at least.
  • Even better yet, I spray-basted 3 other tops that I had on the UFO pile
  • And even better than that: I started quilting one of those sandwiches – I got almost exactly half way done and I ran out of bobbin thread – I took it as an omen, it was time to call it a night.
