got lucky....

It's been how long since my last blog post?
Time goes quick.
There's been a few things going on.
First, my husband was out of town for a week.
While he was gone, I took my 5 year old to a pediactric otolaryngologist.
Her regular ENT thought there was something wrong with her right ear.
Turns out that after driving an hour and a half,
waiting 2 hours and such,
that she has NOTHING wrong with her ear.
Thank goodness.
One pleasantry of the whole specialist trip up north,
was in fact,
that it was located 6 miles from J'Ellen's house of fabric.
No I didn't plan it that way, I just got lucky.
The girls and I set a time limit at Joyce's shop and we stuck to it!
I picked up some new Notebook by Sweetwater
 and Honey Honey by Kate Spain.
We decided to make it an adventure so to speak,
and we found a Whole Foods near the doctors' office.
We bought bread, cookies and breakfast items.
Nothing perishable since I wasn't planning this stop.
It was perfect for snacks after such a long doctors office wait.
Glad I found a Whole foods so close to the quilt shop
 as it now be on my list every time I go to J'Ellens'.

Anyhow, I attempted to foundation paper piece a new pattern.
It was a flop and I had to start over.
Well I haven't actually started it over yet.

Then I pulled some green stash for inspiration.
I haven't sewn anything yet.

And I bought a few black and white prints from Pink Castle Fabrics.
I think they are having a moving sale right now of 15%. Moving15 is the code.

You might also want to note that the Fat Quarter Shop has a code 20% off 
for a couple more days. As a bonus for those who follow twitter and talk on Tuesday with Cara Quilts.
It's Talknt20 , I used mine. Use yours ;)
and no I get no kick backs from this...just passing on the sale information...
I believe it's called "enabling".

I love JEllens and go up as often as I can. I also have wanted to try a Whole Foods and googled it once to see if there were any in the Cleveland area. Is it on Mayfield Rd. also?? Thanks for the heads up on the discount.

I love those greens and those black/whites. It will be fun to see what you come up with to use them in.
