When I was through town I hit up the thrift store. Lately that 15 minutes while I run through the store is the most time I do anything frivolous. That’s all okay…I honestly am not complaining, I’m more saying that I was thankful for that simple 15 minutes.
I had Carver with me so it was only a quick stop. We looked at toys and found him a John Deere tractor….50 cents, which was enough of a bribe for him to let me peacefully look at whatever I wanted. I headed to the fabric of course. Just because I haven’t had much sewing time, doesn’t mean I’m not dreaming about sewing time.
Two bags came home with me….One was $1.50- the other was $2. I wasn’t sure about the $2 one until I flipped it over….
John Deere fabric. Yep that one came home.
I opened it up to find this….
..and this. Kelli has nieces and nephews that love John Deere so this might go to her. There are two larger cuts that could make pillow cases so that might happen too. We’ll see. The $2 was a good deal.
The other bag was my favorite. SCRAPS!!
I got them all sorted out into piles of how I would use them. I have all the piles stacked up and ready to be put away…the batiks are fun. I’m also excited about the grays. I’m going to make that quilt in Bonnie Hunter’s String Frenzy book that calls for grays. PERFECT!
I’m doing pretty good. I’ve touched the sewing machine a few times. I have learned it truly is like riding bike. I’ll always remember how to sew just like I’ll always remember how to ride a bike.
