Wooo Hoooo! I went to Cedarberg yesterday with my friend and we spent the entire day strolling through town browsing. It turned out so sunny and in the 30's - but there was no wind and it felt so good to see the sun we didn't mind!
And did I have a great find! Last store we went to because it is way down the street from the other shops is the old woolen mill which is now a quilt/wool store. I like to look in there because they must not get much business because I often find old lines of fabrics that are gone in other stores. Anyway I was browsing through the reproduction lines and found this AWESOME fabric! I had been so good all day and didn't buy anything, but this just kept saying come home with me, come home with me.
Well I looked at the price and it was only $7.93 a yard - for a moda! Around here moda's run from $8.50-$9.50 yard. Then on top of it all fabrics were 20% off! Oh my gosh. I decided I would buy 6 yards for backing on this quilt I've been hand applique'ing now for years - I thought it might be perfect, and if it wasn't I loved the fabric so much I would use it in something else. So they measured out the 6 yards and there was only 1.5 yds left. Well I couldn't leave that 1.5 yds there - so had to bring that home too!
So much for not spending money!
