I am Free to Roam

Free from spending money???  NAH!  Free from spending a lot?  YES!  

With gift card in hand, I went to Joann's the other day and bought up some needed notions,embroidery thread and fabric.

The orange and green is to finish up the sashing and border for Sherbet top.  Kona Surf and Midnight and some Kona coal are for a special somebody from Sue's shop.  Simply Solid Fabric is an amazing shop online that will customize your Kona order to whatever specifications 
 you give her---how GREAT is that folks!!  She labels each piece of fabric with the color as well!!!  Lovin' it!!!!

Back to Joann's purchases now, I also found this very,very cute birdcage patterned fabric for $2 off a yd so it was $6 a yd!!  Snatched up some of this eye candy right away.
See all the little birdies in the cages?  Click on the pic to see them clearer maybe.

Onto some variegated perle cotton thread for a secret project for a friend's Christmas gift.  These are soooo pretty:)

Just looking at them is satisfying for me at this pointThey may be my new favorites when it comes to thread shopping.  Texture really comes to life when using these babies!!

There has been a sale going on at a local quilt shop that has since closed as of yesterday evening, very sad to see a shop go like that as we all know.

On a brighter note, the owner was able to sell everything off with the exception of a few small things.  Yeay!!   Of course I contributed to some of that!  I bought some fat quarters awhile back from them and yesterday I ran over there the last hour before they shut the doors and bought up a bolt of interfacing for 70 cents a yd, the rest of a  bolt of a green and white floral print for $2 a yd and the remaining 4 or 5 yds of a gray/black floral print fabric for $2 a yd. 

THE best purchase decision I made though was to marry this man.  Congratualtions baby on your promotion to Warrant Officer for the Army!!!!  It was a true blessing to be there for your graduation:)

                                                           WE LOVE YOU

Enjoy your Sunday and each other slowly,
