Kim over at Kim's Big Quilting Adventure pointed out that since the Fabric Diet has hit, our national economy is really suffering. Now this may just be coincidence, but we shouldn't take chances. If we can save the American dollar, it is our civil duty to help in every way we can. I pledged my support, and kicked off my campaign today. Here's my humble contribution for this weekend:
Start easy now, especially if you've been dieting long. A few fat quarters is a good first step. These are for a fun new project I'm going to tackle.
Some other oddments from the markdown table - there seems to be more lime green making it's way into my little room lately. I wonder if somethings up? The froggies go to my stash of froggy fabric -- you do realize that I am in fact, a frog, right?
OK - I didn't buy these today but they were delivered today. Essentials thread from Connecting Threads. I like it for quilting because it's got a lot more heft to it than the Masterpiece I use for piecing. And you can't beat the price for BIG spools!
Finally, I didn't buy this today, but I have to give it a big plug. I bought it with Christmas gift certificates, almost as a toy gimmicky thing. It's fantastic! This winds bobbins a good bit tighter than my sewing machine does, so lots more thread goes on, and it's faster too. And cute, don't forget cute.
Tonight we're off to a retirement dinner for one of the officers in Hunnys old squad - remember what I told you about cops parties? My mission is to get Lieutenant Wayne a little, um, lit up. They always roast the poor retiree, and everyone tells the most raucous stories about him. Hunny has one about him having to use force on a suspect, and actually putting a huge bend in one of those big MagLight flashlights. You know the 4 lb. kind, 2 feet long? Yea -- well, while the suspect took a nap on the side of the road, our honoree tried his best to unbend the flashlight to no avail. It ended up in an evidence locker where it languished for the next 13 years until Hunny liberated it and will present it along with his story tonight. I promise you, it will get the biggest laugh of the night!
