IT JUST DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!!

So...my son David and I were headed out to pick up the 4th son this evening in Richmond, he came from Hawaii......(whohooooo....now this young man has an infectious laugh and it is so fun to hear his laugh fill the house....how I have missed him).


Anyways, I check the mail before I left and to my utter surprise and delight (I think I actually squealed)....good thing my son was driving, I was sent 4 cards of buttons from ButtonMad!!


I did get a strange look from him as I was jumping up and down in my seat (not good for the suspension).... Check out their blog!!! I can't get enough of their buttons!!!


What a creative group of women.... Women Empowering Women!!! Thanks soooooo much!!!


Then I received this a few days ago from "The Second Twin"


She wanted to know what 47 felt like.....let me see if I can remember while I walked 20 miles in the snow to school, all up hill...HA!!! She has a wonderful blog.... Thanks so much!!


....okay...a person can only take so much but it just didn't stop there.



So...I am going to the grocery store but by the store is a Tuesday Morning .....I love this store and well....I decided to stop in and have a browse before going next door for food.


Low and behold....look what I found and for cheap...12 fat quarters for 4.99....oh...yes 4.99!!


Two yards of fabric for 2.50 each..... I think I hit the mother load....but wait...there is more!!!



Then I found these Pre Printed Paper Piecing for Crazy patches (8 printed pieces for 48 - 6" finished blocks, or 9 printed pieces for 54 - 8" finished blocks or 6 printed pieces for 36- 10" finished blocks.



The other is Flower Power - pre -printed freezer paper to create an applique garden....Says more than 140 reusable flowers, stem and leaf patterns....


Why am I going to such pains to tell you about these packets? Because I am going to offer one to a lucky winner. Just leave a comment and tell me which one you would like! Why not share the finds? Oh...I will pick a winner on Friday....I have another son coming in then!

What a fun day and great post. The best news is updates about your sons coming home. So very happy for you.

I didn't realize Tuesday Morning was also in your area. I certainly enjoy shopping at the ones in my area.

Barb, I did not know Tuesday Mornings had quilting supplies. Thank you for sharing. I would love the crazy quilt foundation blocks to help me finish my blocks.
Congratulations on your sons coming home. I know you are doing the happy dance.

Tangos Treasures said...

I think I would like the flower power one...it looks interesting. How exciting that all your boys are coming home. I would love to see my son. It has been way too long since he got to come home. Have fun!!!

JustCindy said...

The buttons are so cute! What a great buy on the fat quarters. Although I don't have a GO, I am enjoying the hop.

Crispy said...

The buttons are great!! Did David tell you to calm down while he tried to control the car? LOL

How wonderful to have your "boys" coming home. Your house will be so quiet again when they all head out :0(

Crispy (Don't put me in the drawing for the usual reasons LOL)

Barbara said...

This is a chock-full post, but the one that stands out in my "bargain mind" is 12 FQs at that price! Thanks for sharing all the fun, including how much we all miss our "kids".

Melissa said...

Oh, I just love Tuesday morning for the quilting and sewing bargains! I am going to have to try to stop by there today after work!

Lacy said...

The flower power is so neat.. ;)

phaedra96 said...

After doing a king-sized log cabin, paper-pieced, I swore I would never paper piece again. But.....I want to do a crazy quilt, always have. This seems to be a good way to jump in and actually do it.

Deanna said...

WOW! What a batch of great finds (particularly the tall, dark and laughing one). Have a great time gathering your boys around you.

Hillbilly Handiworks said...

I am still waiting on my penguin buttons. I love them and am so glad that you introduced this company!!

I do enjoy paper piecing. I've never tried pre-printed papers. The flowers sound fun.

LynCC said...

Fun!!! :D

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Wow, our Tuesday Morning does not carry much in the line of quilting. They've just started carrying some yarn. They used to have great quilting books at reasonable prices, but no more..... they are all knitting and crochet books now :-(

True Blue Nana said...

Are you saying you have two sons home at the same time? That's fabulous. I am going to the button site right now.

julietk said...

Hi Barb Thanks for your kind message on my blog X
You are lucky to have 4 lovely sons I have just one and he is so loving. That store sounds terrific I am sure I would spend too much in there :-) great finds, I could not choose easily between them. Best wishes, Juliet

Mary L. said...

I'm so happy for you! I know what it is like to have your children scattered around the world and how it thrills your heart to wrap your arms around them again! Enjoy!
And I'd love the Flower Power one.

Connie said...

Looks like you found some great deals! Love the Flower Power papers!

Needled Mom said...

Don't you love Tuesday Morning? I find some of the craziest things there. It's as dangerous as Home Goods to walk in the doors. lol

Love your cute buttons. I have been paying more attention to them since you blogged about them.

Enjoy your sons.

sewmeow said...

How wonderful to have your son there. He definitely brought you lots of good fortune. Enjoy!

Cyndi said...

Hey Barb! How exciting to have three of your sons home at once! I know you and your hubby are going to have a wonderful time with them!

Wow, you did hit the "mother lode"! Great finds...I never find fabric at our Tuesday Morning store! If I was to win, anything you'd like to send would be fine with me!

BTW, I'm having a give away right now, too. Come on over and enter if you'd like!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Beautiful Seams said...

Happy for you that you have your sons home, I hope you have a wonderful and blessed family visit !!!

You have really had a great day!! Such wonderful finds!!!!

Carolyn said...

WOW, you DID hit the mother load! I love your new buttons. Aren't buttons fun? I could play in them almost as often as playing in fabric....well maybe not quite, but you know what I mean. LOL I need to check out our Tuesday Morning. If I were to win, either would be fun, but my favorite is Flower Power. I love gardening. :) Thank you for the chance!

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

I didn't notice your day/date was wrong. I'm not very observant I guess.

You found lots of nice goodies. The crazy patches looks like it would be fun and a new way to use up scraps.

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Cute buttons! Love your Tuesday Morning finds too. The flower appliques look interesting~ and I'm sure they have to be easier than drawing or tracing! lol How nice to have your sons visit! Have a happy day!

hetty said...

I have never heard of Tuesday Morning. It sounds fantastic. I would love to win something - anything. It really doesn't matter what it is. I am just so happy that my new computer is working and I can go and visit all of my blogging friends again!

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

What a great store.

Diane H said...

You are so blessed to have another one of your son's to pick up - that makes me happy for you.

Donna said...

Flower Power would be my pick ... I am planning on learning to applique and I love flowers.

Enjoy your time with your sons.

Jean said...

You are one lucky woman...all those nice things in one day, plus a son home for a visit to boot! Glad you are getting some family time in this weeK!

Kim D. said...

Sounds like you had a fun day being reunited with your boys. You also hit the jackpot, I didn't realize Tuesday Mornings carried fabric. I have seen rotary cutters, scissors and other quilty things there, but never fabric. You lucky lady. Enjoy! The flower power freezer paper looks interesting.

onlymehere said...

It's heaven on earth at your house for sure with all your kids coming home! Oh what joy there must be!

Ivory Spring said...

Thanks for the heads up on the button company. What fun products they have. :)

arlette said...

You found a bunch of lovely goodies, enjoy them!!!, are all your kids single?, just wondering, lol

Teresa in Music City said...

Hi Barb! Found your blog site this morning via Redneck Quilter and signed up to follow immediately! I never knew the flower power freezer paper existed and would love to try it out! Thanks for sharing!

Joanne Lendaro said...

breath in, breath out, breath in, breath out, keep repeating!! lol!!

hug those boys all you can!!

Rosa said...

Sound that you had a fun day with your boys,that`s fantastic!!

I love the fat quarter

Regina said...

Another son is coming? Yay! Are you going to make him cookies? I think you have to now. Tee hee hee. What a great day you had!

Mary said...

I love the paper with the crazy quilting. But more importantly, the fact that your sons are coming home. How wonderful is that!!!!

FabricsNQuilts said...

Love all the bright fabrics you found! But I have to say that the applique would be my oogling-over fave!

What a great day!

Dresden Quilter said...

Congratulations on all of your amazing finds and wins! I would love to try the flower power. It looks really neat.
