~ Score!! ~

I hosted my first sew day...well, sort of ;-)
 I invited my sister-in-law and mother-in-law over yesterday for a sew in. As far as sewing goes, it was a total bust. By the time I picked them up, ran by Hobby Lobby for a couple of purchases, stopped for lunch...well, we were pooped before arriving at my house. My SIL and I got a little bit done, but by 1:00 we were all stretched out in the living room taking a nap! But, we had a great day and decided that a redo was definitely in order.

I did score big, however, at Hobby Lobby. Although I had no plans to purchase fabric (we were there to pick up supplies for my son's latest obsession), I couldn't resist browsing the fabric section. And I am so glad that I did!!!

A Ghastlie Family Reunion in Gray - at 40% off!!!

A score made even bigger when I went to one of my go-to online stores for coordinating fabric and found that just about all of this line is sold out...YIKES...what am I going to do now????

I first fell in love with the Ghastlies when I saw Stephanie's quilt last year. Hopefully, I can pick her brain for ideas next month because I have NO idea what I'm going to do with it, especially if I can't find any coordinating fabric.
 Any ideas would be greatly appreciated ;-)

I have decided it might be best if I not leave home during the next two weeks. Otherwise, I will have spent all by birthday money set aside for my upcoming retreat. I am already dreaming (seriously) of all the purchases I will be making at Grubers!!

Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog!!

    I love this fabric. I am sure that you will get many creative ideas from the ladies at your retreat. I hope that you spend all your birthday money at Gruber's this year. No putting things back on the shelves.

    1. I will try to do better this year! But you know how cheap, uh, I mean frugal, I tend to be ;-)

  3. Thanks for the shout out! Man, if I found that deal on that fabric, I totally would have scooped some up! Love the Ghastlies, and I love the coordinating prints, too! Have fun with it!
