Doing well here.

But....I was tempted again to buy online. This time from Hancock's of Paducah. I found some great close-out deals on "Flirt" and Summer's Basket. I have FQ's and charms packs for projects from each line. These will be backings or borders. I have been looking and looking for a light colored batik and took a chance on this print on the bottom. It actually has a blue/purple tint to it but it will work fabulously with my Mulberry Bali Pop! I've cut it and have some pinned for piecing. I am going to make a quilt from the "Jelly Quilts" book. So simple but I think it will pack a punch with the bali's (post coming in future). In addition to the yardage....I bought charm packs oh yes I did......Portugal...I NEEDED (LOL) to make some Posie's (post coming) to coordinate with a quilt I am making with this line (post coming-- I promise). I also pickied up some Peace of Earth to use with a Bunny Hill pattern "I believe in Angels" that I started. There is a little Maypole and Nest in there as well...but for between $2.98 and $3.98 a pack...how could I pass them up??
Anyhow, I have been plugging away at the pink/brown pincushions...and another quilt I started a few months ago. I hope to have the borders and pictures made by the end of the day. Cross your fingers for me.

Wow, you really did some serious shopping! I can't believe all the charm packs. Were they also at Hancock's? They are just wonderful to have around for a quick project!

Serious shopping! I think I need to check them out and see what else they have on sale... not like I need any more fabric!

Great charm packs!
You have a lot of lovely items on your blog that I would like to view and comment on, but for some reason, each time I have come to your blog I have trouble scrolling... Quite frustrating...
Could there be a reason on your end for this? I only have this problem with just a few blogs...?...hmmmm?
Happy stitchings!
