North Carolina visit with friends

I am a bit late getting this onto my blog, but it has been a bit busy around here - cleaning house, laundry, stitching, cooking all the good stuff!!!

Below is a picture of my van that was purchased in Florida and is now sitting with snow (I know very little snow)on it. It was very, very cold.While visiting with my friends we went shopping at the quilt shops and below is some Moda fabric I purchased.
This crazy panel which discribes my sewing/stitchingroom to a "T"

We also stopped at the yarn, weaving and cross stitch shop and in their 1/2 off basket were 7 Mary Garry charts - now you know that I snapped them up.

I also found 4 purse patterns at 1/2 price at one of the quilt shops
I also found 3 Prairie Schooler charts at 1/2 price.
Below is some fabric that I purchased to make pillow cases for my bed and a daybed - for decorative purposes only.
All in all I had a great time with my friends, good food, lots of stitching and some fun shopping.

Thanks for stopping by ------ Roberta

Siobhan said...

Wow, YGG!! You really hit the jackpot with your shopping, especially those Mary Garry charts!

Brigitte said...

Wow, wow, wow! Mary Garry designs for half the price, Prairie Schooler designs for half the prize - I hope you know how much I envy you, lol. No, seriously, congratulations on a wonderful find, Roberta. Enjoy all your great goodies.

Looks like you had a fun shopping time. I like the four seasons design and that Inventory Conrol panel is really cute. You sure found some bargains. Now, we have a picture of your stitching spots in your house too.

Heidi said...

My but you really won the lottery in stash buys...lol! We don't ever have sales on things like that here since there is only one real LNS now here. I see lots of stitching days in 2009 for you. I love the Chelsea bags! I think I might need to hunt a pattern like that one day.

Hugs ~

Glad you had a fun visit with your friends Roberta, and it does look very cold!

You found some real treasures! The fabrics are so pretty, the panel hilarious, and those charts! Wow! You have some real treasures there.

Well Roberta,What a treat I had when I popped over to your blog just now. I'm sitting here freezing cold but your fantastic bargains have made me begin to warm up and tingle :>)
I can't believe you've found those beautiful Mary Garry patterns. I've never seen 2 of them before and love them. Those tote bag patterns are just gorgeous too. You are going to be amazingly busy for quite a while ;>)
I'm so glad you had a great time with your friends :>)
Hugs, Angela

Snow??? What snow??? lol

I'm so flattered you like your card so much to put it on your header. Now that I have more experience and better toys I want to re-do it!

Awesome shopping spree. You find the nicest patterns. Love the fabrics! A couple of them live here too :-)
