I just can't break even. Two steps forward, one back. Oh, well, I'm getting there.
This week I stuck 10 more yards in the box going to a friend for charity quilts.
But ... there's always a "but" at the LA Quilter household, isn't there?
I picked up four yards of Durham Anew by Brenda Riddle, and two yards of Bar Harbor backgrounds at the Fat Quarter Shop.
And one more thing I need to report, speaking of Minick & Simpson -- a very sweet, dear, wonderful, smart, beautiful, skinny friend who went to Market sent me a tower of (GASP!) the new Clermont Farms line! OMG, I was hyperventilating when I opened that box! Ten more yards in, but who cares! I've been fondling and petting it since it arrived! Thank you thank you thank you! I won't embarrass you by saying your name here, but you know who you are! Seriously, if I can EVER do ANYTHING for you, EVER, ANYTHING, just ask! Well, you can't have Penny - and I guess I can't give you my first-born child since I don't have one - but anything else, it's yours!
I actually had other stuff arrive this week, but they were gifts for someone so I'm not counting them. Whew!
Yesterday Penny and I spent the day at Skippy's house. We celebrated Jane's sweet DH's birthday in style with wonderful food, a birthday cake, and the pups had a blast! Penny slept the entire way home. She was actually snoring! When I carried her into the house, she walked straight into her kennel and went back to sleep! She's such a weenie! :)
Today I'm going to work on the Celebration quilt, and I must muck out my sewing room and probably the refrigerator. Wanta bet I don't get to the latter?
