I had such big plans for making blocks this week but only finished one!

Tuesday was going to be 'the' big sewing day until I stopped at a friends just to say hi.  I wasn't going to visit, just say hi .... 4 hours later I left.  Yesterday I visited with a friend for a planned 1/2 hour ... 3 hours later I left.  I told her I must have needed to use all my words that afternoon and she replied 'good thing you don't know the entire dictionary'  Shocked  Today hubby's off so that means another day with no sewing but that's okay since I LOVE spending days with him  Kiss

oh homerof2...I just bought Kona solids yesterday on sale from $6.99 a yard to $3.99...I bought 1/2 yards of a lot of colors...the bill was about $15.

 Tongue  I just bought Kona solids yesterday at full price of $10.99 - I bought 1/4 yard of 4 colors - it cost me $11.45 with tax!

I can take you to 2 JoAnn's, 2 Michael's, and 3 Hobby Lobbys plus several quilt fabric stores. We have an abundance of craft riches here.

That's just not fair !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I would love to have a Hobby Lobby within driving distance but, wait, they aren't in Canada!  That means I have to drive a long way to find one  Cry

For me, hmm..... local quilt store not worth going to, quilt store in next town 10 minutes away is worth the drive usually, Michaels in next city 30 minutes away has no fabric, Fabricland in same city has some quilting fabric but so-so quality.  My next option is the even larger cities 1.5 to 2 hours away but unless I go to private stores they have no other chain options.  Now I know why I do most of my fabric shopping online or when we visit the US. 

Now if we talk prices that just makes me cry  Cry   Cry   Our quilt fabric here is twice the price, or more, of buying online (including shipping) or when I shop in the US.  I used to think quilting was expensive until I found prices outside of Canada.

I got a bunch of solids today...and nothing else! Grin

Me too and I'm so proud of myself!!

I got to the quilt shop just after they opened and on my way in I said to the only employee - I'm only going to get what I came for but that's going to be so hard - and she laughed!  I picked up the 4 solids I wanted and let myself look for a minute but then couldn't do it longer without wanting to buy so I left.

I do not know the meaning of this "clashing" you speak of. Tongue Erhm.

I posted my first block for Sloth (on page 1).

I haven't sewn since the beginning of April and it felt good!!

I don't 'do' halloween in any way but I sure do like the colors you've all used for those squares - orange, bright green and purple are some of my favorite!
