What I Bought...

I did a great job in shopping the show floor for my medium/dark grays and light grays - great success here! The two bundles you see in the picture were leftover from Sample Spree and so were wholesale priced!

I found this bundle of white background neutrals for En Provence (Bonnie Hunter mystery), again priced wholesale. Wish I'd bought another one at this price...

These are the only Kaffe Fassett fabric I bought - can you believe it???? A few half yard cuts of shot cottons.

There was one vendor who had fat quarters (good quality!) priced at 25 fq's for $20 - what a steal! Here are a few I bought - some of my 25 were grays and were in the photo above. I tried to pick mostly oranges and yellows for the rest as my stash could use more of these.

Aurofil thread!!!! I bought a cone of 50 wt. white because I seem to use a lot of white lately. I also bought four spools of their new fine 80 wt. thread - I'm going to try this out for hand piecing and stitching hexies together. And the orange cone of 30 wt. (the heavier weight thread)? I won that at their booth playing a game. Score!

My splurge... two quilt kits! I never found the Jen Kingwell patterns I wanted, but I did see this Gardenvale by Jen Kingwell kit. Had to have it! I've been wanted to make a Dresden Plate quilt and this fits the bill.

The fabric has wide stripes - no piecing within each wedge!

And I also bought this New Bedford by Denyse Schmidt quilt kit. It just screamed vintage and lake quilt to me - this quilt will live a the lake house!

I never found any knit fabric - I'll just buy that on-line. I felt I was very successful in shopping! I love everything I bought!

I just had to share this recipe for Artichoke and Spinach Roasted Salmon I found on Pinterest. I made it last night and it is such an easy and FAST dish- one of the best things I've cooked in a LONG time! We had roasted broccoli to go with it.

I did get LOTS done on the Bliss pattern yesterday - yay me! More to come today! After swimming, we have to go vote and run a few other errands. We're going to buy a new washing machine to replace our 'exploding' recalled Samsung that is only 5 months old. Samsung has offered us a free repair or we can choose to take a large rebate to purchase another one. We're choosing the rebate. The only concern I have is that a new one won't match my dryer. I've always had a matching set. Oh well. I'm hoping to at least find a washing machine that is the same height and color as my dryer. We'll see.

I'm off to the pool - hope you have a wonderful day!!!!
