Not much going on here. Not much to write about. Same old crap, different day. I won't write about the backstabbing that happened. Or the trespassing.
I will show you some fabs I recently bought. I love them! I have left them out to admire before I put them into the cabinet.
I love looking at all my fabrics.

Somebody. Anybody. Make me laugh. I'm so stressed about this fast approaching loss of my job. Trying to stay calm. Sick of sending out my resume. OK, rant over. For today.
Got some new fabrics. These are so fun. They just make me smile when I look at them!
Look at those fruit butt ladies, LOL! They just crack me up! I just HAD to have that fabric when I spotted it in the quilt shop over the weekend. And I totally fell in love with that fall print from Joann's. New fabs in the house. That always makes me smile!

Happy Labor Day Weekend! The hot humid summer sure flew by. It's been a lot cooler and less humid lately. I love it. Fall is my favorite season. But it's still officially summer. I found this little quilt at a garage sale the other day. I could not resist the fall colors so I bought it.
Time to rearrange things in the living room again and put out fallish type things. Haven't figured out where I'll put this little quilt yet.
I'm still working on my Knits Picks Spring/Summer Shawl. I'll probably still be working on it when spring comes around again, lol!
I'm ready to change colors again. This thing is taking me forever. I'm a slow knitter. But I do other crafty things too besides knit all day and night. I'm almost done with a quilt I'm also making. I just need to hand sew the binding down and that one will be done. Next one is a Christmas quilt. Been gathering the fabrics for that one. But it's way too early to think about Christmas. Especially since I'll be losing my job soon. The stress level is very high here.
I sewed my daughter a little pouch. We had a pickle event a couple weeks ago that made us laugh so when I saw this fabric I just had to buy it and make her something.

Raise your hand if you like estate/garage sales? Fun fun fun! I love going to them. You never know what you will find. It's the thrill of the hunt! I went to an estate sale over the weekend. Found this china cabinet. Didn't want to pay the price they were asking and had no way to get it home anyway. The seller told me I could have it for $45. I still had no way to get it home. He said for $50 total they would deliver it. I bought it!
It's mine! All mine! And only $50! It's in my house. I did not want it for china. Nope. I wanted it for my fabric! I want to be able to see my fabrics!
There it is! My fabrics are in there. On display. It was fun to sort through them and put them in there. It was like rediscovering old friends. Some fabs I had forgotten about. So good to see them again. It did not take long to fill this cabinet up.
But there's still room for more! Must go shopping . . .
I pinned together my Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along Quilt. I just need to tie it. I'm not going to quilt this one. It will get tied. I think I'll start working on the tying tonight while watching TV. It's so hot outside, miserably hot, so I will stay in and play with my quilt.
Once I get it all tied then all that's left is the binding. And it will be DONE!

Sewing. Sewing a lot lately. Stressed. When I'm stressed it helps me to sew. Just a few more weeks and I won't have a job. No job, no health insurance. No health insurance, no heart medicine. Do you see where I'm going with this? Stressed. Stress is not good on a heart patient. So I sew. It's an endless cycle. As long as I have fabric I can sew. I made my daughter and I some pillowcases. I used Soft & Comfy from Joann's for the ends. It's their version of Minkee. Very very very soft and cuddly.
I had a little bit left so I made my Aunt a little pouch. She takes the same heart meds as me. Us heart girls have to stick together.
I'm also finishing up a quilt and I have another one to cut out. Plus I made another totebag and a yo-yo tree. Pics to come soon.
I bought some cute little goodies on my little vacation. I just fell in love with this little clock! And it ticks!
It ticks quietly. A very comforting sound. I got the little runner that's under the clock at the same store. A vintage/antique/gift store. Very nice stuff. Reasonably priced. Lots of fun to look around! I also got this table runner there.
It looks cute on my table. I always wonder about the person who stitched these things when I come across them. Fun finds. They will live on in my house now.
