Well, I finally got around to snapping a picture of my few purchases from yesterdays Pajama Sale. I am wanting to make a circle quilt so got a set of templates for that. Then of course I needed a small rotary cutter to go around the templates. Then a replacement blade. I also got 3 spools of thread. 2 shades of green and a large spool of cream. That's it. I was such a good girl!
Then of course I had to post a pic of the magazine I got. It is a very nicely done biography of my hero, Sarah Palin. Some of you know that I grew up in Wasilla, Alaska and knew Sarah and her family. So, you can imagine my disappointment with the recent elections. **SIGH** But I am hopeful that Barack will do a good job and not screw this country up worse than it is!
So, hopefully I will have alot of time in these coming weeks to get a BUNCH of sewing done. I have 2 tops in progress on my design wall. I need to crank these out soon!
Thanks for popping in!

Each November the Stitchin' Post hosts a Pajama Sale. You have to show up at the store at 6:30 in you pajamas to receive a 30% discount on your entire purchase. This was the first year I have participated but certainly will not be the last! What a crazy time! I got to the store at about 6:15 and got in line. Honestly, it looked like the lines in front of WallMart the day after Thanksgiving! There were women everywhere chatting and laughing in their cute jammies. There were even a few men. To the ladies the men belonged to: Way to go! You got yourselves some real winners! I decided to show some restraint and walked out spending only $31.00. But if you look at my last post you know that it is a good idea that I do not get any fabric! So, for your viewing pleasure I have attached some photos of the ladies waiting for the doors to open, the craziness in the store, and of course some of the token males! Thanks for stopping in and visiting. I promise to post a bit more frequently now that I am getting more organized...

So I decided that I needed to organize my fabrics to help me be more productive. I have 3 large cabinets filled (stuffed actually) with fabric, patterns, books, and STUFF! I have pulled things out and am washing like a mad woman! But things are looking better and I can see what I have now. I have attached some pictures to make me more excited about finishing soon! There is a large pile of fabric on the floor to be washed. Then in one picture I was showing some funky static thing that was going on. Then an almost filled cupboard. I have more work to do but am making huge strides!
