Oops - shopping happened!

Yesterday afternoon I was reading the Sunday Mail, and the Spotlight catalogue fell out. Of course I had to glance thru it, and I noticed that they were discounting their wool by 30%, and there was 20% off all haby and quiting fabrics.

I decided to mosey on over, and was very excited to find that they were selling out their discounted fabric for $2.00 per metre! The paisley that I purchased the other day - well, I got the rest of the bolt. The green in the picture - the rest of the bolt. The blue dots - 3 metres, and the other two weren't discounted fabrics, but still so reasonably priced, and very useful for my current project.

If there's something you've been keeping an eye on in the discounted fabric area - I'd head on over there now. Run, don't walk! I also got some more bobbins, and some of the sock wool in a colour I feel hubby will like.

And here is my up to the minute progress on the 'Among the Evergreens' quilt. It's coming along quickly, and I'm liking it a whole lot. I'm so pleased I got that paisley fabric on a whim, I think it really works in this quilt.

Tonight I'd like to finish it to borders - I'll see how busy I get. Tomorrow I have shopping plans - I need to get ready for Cameron's birthday which is on Friday (kiddy party on Saturday). I can't believe the little guy is turning six already. Doesn't time fly!!

I thought you were going to say shoes. At those prices, I'm not surprised you bought the bolts.

I'm spitting chips that we don't live near a Spotlight! I would have arm wrestled you for the bolts, what a bargain! And I've knitted a pair of socks from that colourway, and it was very entertaining, you'll enjoy it.
Perhaps Keryn and I could run away to Whyalla Spotlight.....

A sale on fabrics up our way in quilt shops, at the cheapest, and that is rare, isabout $6.00. At Fabricland quilting cottons cheapest may be $4-5.00...
Whenever I have traveled down States side to Fargo I have to shop at Mills End Textiles for some good buys...

Where will you be when you come to the states? If you make it to Pennsylvania, let me know.

Wow! I love the Evergreens quilt! It is scrumptious! And the shopping pictures aren't too hard to take either. Nicely done on both counts. Hugs!
