    Default shopping

    Hi

    I got a gift card from my company for my birthday and My boss gave me a gift card from her own pocket.
    And wait for it... it was to be used in my Quilt Shop!!!

    I got the best boss !!

    So today I had the opportunity to go.

    I got some fabrics and a drunkards path template ( 7" finished ) and a new blue marking pen and
    some wonder clips

    And a very small wool ironing mat !

    I am very pleased with it . Of course I had to try it at once.

    I am thinking of trying the Wave quilt. "Waves" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    I have already learned that 2 colors and a background is not enough.
    So I will have to get more fabric . Either scrappy or choose one color.

    It was not too hard to make the blocks.
    But you need to focus on the cutting and on the sewing and matching parts.

    Here is a picture on what I got.

    Have a great day/evening

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    I used to shy away from giving gift cards thinking the recipient would think I am too lazy to shop. Then I received a few myself and WOW I sure changed my mind on that. Aren't they fun to spend??!! You made some great choices.

    What a wonderful gift from your company and your boss. I love gift cards since you can get what you want and will enjoy.

    Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
