little bits here and there

Yesterday I chaperoned my son's class to Old Salem NC, it's a cute little town or street where they kept everything like it was in the old days and the employees are all dressed up to match and talk about how people lived back then etc.
You know when I saw this! I had to take a picture :-)

also came home to a package of nice fabrics I ordered the other day.
The floral and white is for the charm quilt I'm planning, using a pattern and charms that I won at the last blog hop, the black dots is for my blue strip blocks, the red, well I am always low on red fabrics and I needed 4$ to get free shipping at so I added that for my stash

ALSO I received these two NEW books from cheryl lynch, one is for me and another is to give away- but not yet! so keep your eyes open, in a few weeks I will talk more about this

thursday I worked on the pastel bubblegum quilt, all the pieces for the top are cut out and I am half way done with block #1 (diamond in a square)

I also received a customer's quilt in the mail, have to get started on that soon, my husband would say NOW! so that I can get some money to pay off my fabric purchases :-) isn't that always the case??
