Some great finds, great sewing time and a giveaway at SewMany Ways

Finally got my batting in the mail at $9 a bag for twin size and some embroidery scissors which will be a huge help.

$3 a yard for the purple beauty above and $2 a yard for this stack of dots, feathers and flowers!

I discovered Karen at Sew Many Ideas this morning and she has a generous heart to be giving away an Accuquilt!!  OH, how I hope I win, I hope I win.  Her projects are so lovely too for the hexagons in every quilter's life these days.  Lovin' the bookmark and decorated serving tray she did up:)

Yesterday a couple of girls and I got together here in eastern GA to do some sewing.  Hope to make this a regular Tues. event.  I worked on these flying geese and managed to sew together all 17 of them---or wait---weren't there supposed to be 18?!!  Well when I started on the 18th one, my needle snapped due to user error and ---WELLlll, stupid me saw the pin coming and went right over it--duh:/  Lesson learned.  So once I get that lonely one sewn up, I will be able to make my rows and add my borders.

See you soon...

Wow, you found some really great deals, which is always exciting. Looks like you got a lot accomplished at your sewing event - love those geese! I would love to have a regular sewing event like that.
