I am back, folks! After a busy week of dinner guests, going to an out of town wedding, and celebrating Easter, I feel like I can sit down and spend some time catching up.
I made a special trip to one of our local quilt shops to buy fabric for a placemat and napkin set. Do any of you shop locally for your fabrics? I wish I could do it more, but when the price is $9.90/yard and I can buy it online for $7.50 it is hard to do. With only one yard, the difference is not too bad, but with multiples, it adds up quickly!
Speaking of fabric, I have been seeing images of vintage sheets being used children’s clothing, pillows, and a whole host of other projects recently, and I am ready to get in on this! While I was at the quilt shop, I also stopped by a thrift shop. Of course they were in the process of sorting all of their “spring” items and all of the housewares were off the floor! My step mom will be here in two weeks, and she is the queen of thrift shops, so I’ll take her with me then. I’ll let you know what we find! I did find some skirts and a dress for the wedding which I will tell you about in another post…I’m still waiting for the files to load on the computer!
How did you spend your weekend?
