It was an absolutely wet day yesterday. Throughout the day it would thunder and the rain would come down in buckets of water. There I was standing at the door; armed with "The Gift Card" and I was heading to the local quilt store to use it no matter what.

I had planned on getting a jelly roll of Moda's Simplicity fabrics. They are so fresh and feminine and such yummy prints. But then I realized I need some fabrics for a quilt to be gifted to a newly married couple. You see, she likes greens....any shades and I don't have any of that color fabric in my stash. So, I went looking and with the help of one of the employees there, we came up with these beautiful fabrics that will make a wonderful lap quilt she and her hubby can snuggle under.

Later on in the afternoon I had to return some yarn at Michael's and yep, you guessed it...I whipped out "The Gift Card" again and purchased this book and a number ten crochet hook and the proper thread to make some of those crochet edged flannel blankets.

Can you believe after all this....I still had money left on the card? Well, I did. There isn't much left, but I intend to use it all...every last penny.

Have a blessed day!

Thank you for your comments...the rag rugs are super easy to do if you like I'll put a tutorial on my blog for you...but beware once you get started you will be a rag rug junkie...lol. I'm glad you like the green bag, it is my own made up pattern....but I can share that too. I love to quilt so I'm sure we can swap patterns. As for where Wooden Bridge Fabrics is...it is near renningers market. If you look it up on google it will give you the address for the market..there is a tiny little sign on the side of the road by the market showing the way to the fabric store..it is WAY off the beaten path, thankfully we all love adventures so it was fun to find. when you come back to pa I'll take you out to eat and to the stores :)
