Remains of the Day

Yep, that and the memories of another fun filled day with friends. I bet you thought today's blog would be all about the spoils of our shopping. Actually it was more about the pile in this picture. We made astounding progress on a secret group project. I hope to show you the end results in a few months. All of you bloggin buddies were so right!!! Omy, I stayed up till 1:30 fretting over the house, I got up at the crack of dawn to make food for my guests. I repeat, you were so right!! I was so tired and terribly grouchy. I shouldn't have worried. The plan of the day was to meet at my place at 8am. The C&T sale started at nine and we wanted to get in as soon as possible. I'm about 5 minutes from the sale so I thought we'd have time for some nourishment before we faced the events of the day. I was ready with a nice little feast. Southwest quiche, strawberries, scones, juice, coffee. But all for naught. Holly was right on time, but with no appetite. The Debs were running late, so we ended up meeting them at C&T. The C&T sale is an annual event. It has been 3 years now and nothing will top the first one. The prices are awesome and what they called "damage" would amaze you. All of these books were in the damaged section at three bucks a piece. I was lucky enough to get some newer publications and just as lucky to find a couple of older ones. I bought a few others but those may turn into gifts and I wouldn't want to give away any secrets. After C&T, it was decided that we would go to breakfast with a stop first at ThimbleCreek. ThimbleCreek was bustling with activity. They were having their Saturday Block Party pick up and a 30% off backing sale. Plus cut fat quarters were only $1.25. I couldn't pass up the fatquarter deal. I'm always looking for backgrounds and bits of this and that for applique. This was a steal. I did control my desires tho. Infact I thought I was very good!!!

Then we were off to breakfast and Main Street Quilts to visit Susie and her awesome shop. I wish I would have had my camera with me. Main Street was blocked off for a custom car show and our little downtown was packed with colorful cars (and colorful people too).

We'd all had enough shopping by then so we skipped Cotton Patch sale and went back to the condo and got down to the business of the day! SEWING!

The quiche end it up as an early supper and my brunch today, so nothing is wasted. I 'm lazing around, doing laundry and getting ready to start another set of pincushions and prep another of the Happy Hauntings blocks.
I just looked down at my jammie bottoms and Tweety is looking up at me with his hands on his hips saying "Don't Mess With Me!" Maybe I could learn a few things from Tweety!
Hope you have a great week!!

Sounds like you gals had a great day. All the goodies is always fun but the best part is sharing it with friends. I sure wish you had taken a picture of yourself and the girls. Please do that next time you all get together. It's times like that you never forget.

Wow, I am the guild librarian so I am really jealous of those book purchases. And the light fabrics look dreamy. Sounds like a fun day.
