I hit the Bookstore....again!

I finished quilting the "Turtle" quilt for my nephew, but haven't taken a photo of it yet. Actually I forgot about the photos until I started doing this post. :( I will try to do that tomorrow.

Today I stopped by the bookstore found a few more goodies! I bought these 3 quilt books for $11, at least I will have plenty of books to look at this Winter. They told me that they would be getting another shipment of quilt books in sometime within the next couple of weeks.
Also I picked up this magazine today at the grocery store! It is WONDERFUL! I love it! It has 100 blocks in it and they are very nice blocks too.
I haven't had much time to sew other than quilt the "turtle" quilt today. Seems like it took me forever to put the groceries away. :( Oh!!!!!!! And I stopped by the "junk store" today and bought a DOOR! It is brand new! Never been hung! I called Lowe's to see how much they cost, he told me $253, I bought mine for $15. I was soooooooooo happy! It will be used upstairs for the door that opens to the deck up there, in the new house.
Andrew is at his uncle's tonight and will be home tomorrow. Hunter is at mom's visiting for a bit. Chantal came out for a few minutes and he wanted to go home with her. Of course, he will not be spending the night, she will bring him home in an hour or so. So right now it is just me and Richard! Tomorrow is the opening day of deer season. (rifle season) Richard, Hunter, Andrew and his uncle Hoss are all going! Hopefully, by the end of the day we will have some fresh deer meat!!!!! Me.....I will be quilting! I have a customer quilt to put on the frame!

I can't wait to see what you come up with to work on out of those books. It always amazes me how fast you can put a quilt together! I think I drink too much coffee when i am sewing, leading to too many breaks and then i get distracted once i'm out of the sewing chair!:-)))
Deer season.. sigh..I like when it is turkey and fishing season!

You need to share with me where the bookstore is located. *lol* I have been wanting to take a trip up to my favorite haunt, but with flu season I haven't been going out much.

Enjoy your new finds. I have a serious addiction to pattern books and magazines.
