FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS....WE ARE GOING FOR A RIDE...SO HANG ON TIGHT!

I got up this morning, told my husband that today was a ME day...I was going to sew all day. He said he wouldn't call and bother me but he called three times....hummmm

So...I am doing my daily exercising wishing so much to be in that sewing room.

A friend calls, she has heard of a fabric sale in a friends home...wanted to know if I wanted to go.

What planet is she from?

What kind of question is that....

Sure I want to go....I drop everything...take the phone in the bathroom while I shower waiting for her call saying when she will be by (she had to make sure it was okay to go over).....

I waited...no call....so I preoccupied my time with the plans of the day (yep...my exercising was cut short...but hey fabric is involved)!

So...a friend asked me to bind this little wall hanging. So.....I go to take out her pins and they are rusted in...big time. One of the disadvantages of living on this island. So, that goes by the way side.


Thimbleberries sew day....so I finish this wall hanging and decide to give it away in the Fall giveaway that will start Tomorrow...and may add a few more things...who knows?



Finished the baby bib.



Put a border on this quilt...decided not to quilt it just yet...so it will be put with the other tops...



Prepped 10 hand towels with applique, and started appliqueing them.



Butterflies from the Go die.



More turtles and a few Christmas (not shown here)...bad picture...sorry... it is late, don't want to take another one...are you worth a good picture...sure you are but am I too lazy...yes...



Cut up the Connecting threads pattern and fabric that my sister sent this week-end.


Made cookies...

This is all that is left...and no...this tater girl did not eat them all....my husband wanted me to make them so he could deliver them...so when he got home, off we went.


Did I ever get to the fabric sale, no but tomorrow morning at seven....I will be there, money in hand ready to haggle..... Oh yes.....momma is gonna get her some fabric....

Momma is doing the fabric dance.

Maybe momma will give some away on Friday? So stay tuned.....how was the ride? To bummpy or boring?

I love taking Me days every once in awhile. They don't happen too often though.

Looks like you did get some things accomplished on your Me day. It feels great to work on one big project all day but it's also nice when you can finish up a bunch of little things too.

Barbara said...

LOL -- a bit bumpy but definitely not boring. I've been focused on summer projects (still not done) so I'm really drawn to that fall wall hanging. Will be watching...

Gene Black said...

Hope you have a god time at the sale! have a great day.

Sandy said...

LOL! This blog is NEVER boring!!!!
What kind of cookies were those (past tense- assume they are GONE!) Sandy

Crispy said...

Lordy girl, you were one BUSY lady!! I'm wishing you LOTS of wonderful fabric buying and bargan prices :0)

Susan said...

Woohoo! What a ride! (Happy shopping today!)

Mystica said...

Those appliques are to die for. The accuracy of the letters, the turtles and butterflies. I love the baby quilt - I doubt the letters coming out so precisely if I cut them out!!!

Joanne Lendaro said...

Cute wall hanging....I'll take a couple dozen cookies, please. You are on a roll girl, keep up the good work!

Rachel said...

Yikes - you got SO much done while you were waiting. When I'm waiting for something I just... wait. I can't do anything else when I'm waiting because of the anticipation (good or bad) about what's going to happen. Pathetic, eh?

I love your fall wallhanging! Just LOVE it!

Melissa said...

Oh good luck at the sale! Exciting!

Yvette said...

I am amazed at how much you accomplish in one day! Have fun at the sale!!

Nanci said...

And you managed to do all that while awaiting a phone call? Good for you...I didn't know people actually sold their own stash!
Can't wait to see what you got!

Debi said...

My ride is boring today, to much working and not enough sewing. Oh but tomorrow and the weekend...look out!

wackywoman said...

Just look at how much you got done with playing the waiting game. Excellent. Have fun today fondling fabric.

Mary Grace McNamara said...

Wow, what a day! I think I need a nap after reading all that! :)

Sounds like a very productive day. It happens so often, you have big plans for the day and then life intervenes.

kpaints said...

Wow, you accomplish so much in a day!! I am always totally amazed!

Kim D. said...

Wow, I'm exhausted reading about everything you accomplished. :) You are one busy lady.. Lots of lovelies and the cookies look yummy!

Fiesta said...

your ride is never too bumpy or boring, just darn exciting. I so love to read your blog. You bet I will be there for your giveaway tomorrow because I have loved that fall quilt since you first blogged about it.

Karen S said...

"Momma is doing the fabric dance" ?! Cute.

Pat said...

You sure have been one busy little girl, Barb. That Thimbleberries wall hanging is just adorable. It would be nice even hanging in an office or computer room. Also, did you try to use WD4o or sewing machine oil on those rusty safety pins to get them out of the fabric?
Just spray a little WD40 from the can into another container. Use a cotton stick or cotton swab and rub it on the pins, and eventually they should come out. Well, now that you made me hungry for cookies, I guess you know what I'am going to do now.
Happy Quilting!

SewCalGal said...

Thanks for the warning about the seat belt. I'd have fallen off, if I hadn't been warned. Wow, have you been busy. But did I miss something about the sale? Did you get anything?

What a busy day! You have way more energy than I do. All I did today was sit in the car to be taken to Amish country where I visited and shopped in some lovely quilt shops, and ate some great food. I'm exhausted!

Michelle May said...

You are just so much crazy fun girlfriend!
Happy bunny fabric cookie dance!
