My Goodies!

I am being lazy tonight! I am drained today. I had to do a lot of driving today and that just makes me tired. I wanted to be home quilting the quilt that I have on the frame but that did not happen. :( While I was out doing my weekly grocery shopping and bill paying, I had to take Richard's sawmill blades to be sharpened and then take them to him, that took forever!!! I had to wait for the man to sharpen them, so I drove on to Paintsville to pass the time. While I was there I picked up a few goodies! I had not been buying new fabric or books but I did pick up a few things today.

My first stop was at the Shady Shack. I picked up these 3 fabrics, only 1/2 yard of each. They will fit nicely in my stash.
Then on to Walmart...I bought 3 yards of this. I will probably save it to use as a border fabric. I love the colors in these fabrics.
Stopped at the bookstore in Van Lear called Words-n-stuff. He is VERY cheap on his books. I bought these 3 books. They do have some beautiful patterns in them.
In the end, my LITTLE shopping spree cost me less than $25! Yep! A total of 4 1/2 yards of fabric and 3 quilt books, less than $25! Can't beat that with a stick!!! :)
Tomorrow is Trick-or-Treat night here for the kids. Of course, Andrew is too old to go, but Hunter is very excited! So Hunter will go get the candy and Andrew will eat it! :) They are calling for rain, I just hope that it doesn't started until after they are finished. I told Hunter that if it started raining, we would have to come back home. I don't want to take a chance on getting him sick.
One more week and mom will be home! I talked to her today, she sounded very tired. I think she is tired and also worried about my sister. Chantal has had the flu. She works at a doctor's office so I'm sure that is how she caught it. She had been really sick. There is not a lot that you can take for the flu. Now she is starting to get over that and the doctor told her she was on the verge of having pneumonia. Now she is having to take breathing treatments and steroids. Hopefully she will get over this soon.

Your fabric is pretty. That's a good selection. Books look informative also. I am sure you can find at least one pattern from each to try. LOL Add 3 more tops to the list. I just have to get up there to that bookstore.

Love all your goodies you picked up for very little money. Having to kill time is tiring...even if you are shopping for things you enjoy.

For Hunter's sake may the rain hold off until he is thru with his T & T time tomorrow night.

Sleep tight so you will rested tomorrow.

I could not agree more, nothing wears me out like driving into town does! I tell DH I can work outside all day hard and not be as tired as I am when I drive into town...

Nice loot you got there girly :).. I love that quilt on the cover of the first ... fabrics are all pretty and especially love that last piece of fabric ... I will have to check our Walmart :O)

I picked up a couple pieces of Halloween at Walmart last week. just 1/2 yard cuts to go in a pile, I am wanting to make this spider web Halloween quilt...its scrappy...

Hope your sister gets to feeling better :O)...

What wonderful purchases, and for so little! I'm guessing that the Turkey Tracks blocks I am seeing now are inspired by that quilt on the cover of the second book? Very cool!
