Ok, so my local quilt shop is Quilters' Quarters. I went there yesterday to see what was new. Nancy the shop owner gets new stuff in every week. I picked up 1/2 yd. of white snowflakes on white for a snowman stitchery, 2 yds. of a Kathy Schmitz crackle for the Ring in the New pattern, 1 yard of a brushed woven and a bottle of Best Press Citrus Grove. I have to say it was hard not to go wild and buy more. Sometimes I think I am more of a fabric, pattern, book and notion collector than a piecer/quilter. I used to say it was cheaper than therapy, now I say it is cheaper than booze, cigarettes and therapy. ;-)
Do you use starch or sizing? I love the feel it gives the fabric while cutting and piecing. Of course it can be pricey. Sometimes I use Magic Sizing instead.
Well, today is Friday and my little guy is very happy. He was sing songing that fact on his way outside to get on the school bus. Speed Racer The Next Generation is on tonight and we have a standing date to watch it together. He likes to sit on the floor and play with his cars from the vintage series as well as the current movie. My big Bro and I used to watch Speed Racer everyday after school. I so wanted to be Trixie!
I hope you have as nice an evening as we have planned.
