Fabric Finds!

My birthday month is the month where I gift myself with fabric and quilty things! You all know I ordered some a couple weeks ago. And it came! The FQ bundles from Z & S arrived just in time!

I also did a bit of shopping at Sweet Home Quilt Co in Conyers, GA! This is Melissa's shop, and it is in a wonderful historic house built in 1900!

You can see that Oscar was greatly intrigued by what I spread out on the floor! The two orange pieces I ordered from thousandsofbolts.com and there are the two FQ bundles from Z & S fabrics.com

I found a few background FQs at Melissa's shop that I had to have, along with my favorite roxanne quilting needles...I love these because they are more stout than other needles and don't bend so easily. I also raided her 10 cent scrap bin!! It gave me a big variety of pieces to work with, always so fun. Some marking pencils topped off my purchase there!

Oscar had to roll all over and love the scrap pieces right away. A cat after my own heart! I felt like doing the same thing! ;c)

Bane of all Banes....I am home today, but I have to clean house for a house showing in a few hours. I want to SEW! I want to QUILT! I have so much to do, and I have to spiffy everything up for a house showing..blahhh..

Today Jeff is 18!! He made it to adulthood! Well, at least in numbers anyway...(no thanks to me I'm sure...it can't be easy to live with me...)

I also have a funny to admit to. Over the last couple weeks with birthday pending, I bought some books from amazon...I didn't remember all that I bought, But books arrived while I was gone. I opened them up last night, took the stack to bed to read with me...and I don't remember ordering all of these. Hmmmm...

This morning there is an email from Lucy asking if I received the book she sent for my birthday! And I don't even know which one it is, because I looked at them all, and ordered a bunch and I don't remember! Is this old age settling in?! I had to ask her the title of the one she sent so I can know it was the one SHE sent and not one I ordered for my birthday book spree..silly. But you gotta laugh, right?


  1. Bonnie - with al you've got on your plate at the moment it's no wonder you can't remember which you ordered - hey I'd be like that and I don't even have the excuse of moving!

  2. Looks like you got yourself some excellent BD goodies!

  3. Hang in there, you don't have to explain a thing. We all understand! LOL!!

  4. Love your fabric Bonnie.

  5. Yep, you gotta laugh! (it's either that or doubt your sanity and/or cry -- I'll take laughter any day of the week) Love the fabric purchases and the goodies you got too! What fun.

    Happy BD. Is your quilt shop in the same place as the Victorian House restaurant? I lived in Atlanta in the 80s and a Conyers friend used to take me there occasionally.

  7. love that pic of Oscar with his fabric. so sorry house stuff is intruding on play time - boring. enjoy the books and the fabric!
