It's Friday again and what a week of gorgeous weather it has been here in Southern California! Spring is definitely in the air! On Wed. mom and I headed down to the JoAnne's in Ontario as not only is it one of the biggest JoAnne's, it also has the little scooters. Now mom has not been in a scooter since breaking her neck, and she was kind of hesitant to give it a whirl, but she decided she would try. She did perfectly! YAY! I really want to get started on my sewing for the new babies, and I had a 20 percent off your entire purchase coupon, so I thought I might get a couple of things. WELL! After we arrived, I discovered that the Snuggle flannel fabric was 60 percent off! This was not advertised (I can't imagine why ~ or maybe I just missed it!) so I was almost giddy. My coupon was good for even "sale" items, meaning that meant the fabric would be 80 percent off altogether!! 80 percent!! Practically free, haha! I decided to stock up some. The receiving blankets, little nightshirts, and the burp cloths are all made with this flannel. So I just bought a bunch of what I liked, in the colors Larissa prefers (Mel still has plenty of these items from Sam to pass down to Luke) and I will decide later what is going to be for what. I am also going to make 3 rag quilts. Now these will be VERY planned, so I did not purchase any fabric for them yet, HOWEVER, some of what I bought might work. I am going to be making a single sized bed quilt for Sam's new room and big boy bed out of John Deere. And then I am going to make one each for the new babies. I am also going to make them both some sheets, and bumper pads for Larissa, and new valances for Melody. As you can see LOTS AND LOTS of sewing to do, and I am soo looking forward to it. I have researched and studied how to make the rag quilts, and I honestly think they will be very easy, so I hope I am not wrong with 3 of them planned. Here are some of the fabrics I bought.
|THE 3 FABRIC ON THE RIGHT WILL BE RECEIVING BLANKETS FOR LARISSA|
|THE 3 COLORS ON THE LEFT ARE THE START OF THE RAG QUILT FOR LARISSA'S NEW BABY (MAYBE) AND THE JOHN DEERE PLAID AND THE GREEN WILL BE USED FOR SAM'S QUILT.|
Today I am busy doing laundry and getting mom's stuff together to go to my sister's for the week-end. Hope you all have a wonderful week-end, and having something relaxing planned. Blessings to you all!
