Net Fabric for 2016 a Gain of 5 yards

With visit you local Quilt shop day happening on January 23rd this year, I just had to visit my friend, Carole and her Quilt Shop,  Fibre Junction located in Rouses Point, NY yesterday.  I had  a plan to purchase a couple of wool pieces I need for two different projects and hopefully have a nice cuppa tea while visiting her.  Eureka, Success and then some.  She and her shop never disappoint!

What came home with me you might ask?
I scored a total of 2 1/2 yards of 5 different wools (3 just lovely greens, a cream and a 75% discounted black and cream herringbone tweed as well as 2 scrumptious background fabrics totaling another 2 1/2 yards of cotton that were located in her discount bin at 40% off.  What a deal. Check it out.

Though this stash report shows me going further into obtaining rather than the using,  I feel wonderful with this purchase which will allow me to get a couple of whimm-pigs completed.

For my Slow stitching Sunday with Kathy, I'm still working on the Red Thread wording, only have 4 words left on that section then I'll be heading up the sides by the end of this month. FINGERS CROSSED!  Did I mention the words are the longer words?

THREAD... CONNECTS.... THOSE.... DESTINED... are all that's left.
Just in case you don't remember what it looks like, (as if I haven't shown you enough!) here it is,

The last bit I wanted to share is a photo taken of the youngest grandson while playing Hockey at Lake Placid's Ice Arena a couple of weeks ago.

He's in the Mit division for our local Youth Hockey group and thoroughly enjoys the sport.  Since he is only in first grade, he's had a passion for this sport since he was two and has a natural ability!  I love seeing the kids "get it" when it comes to sports.  Increasing they talents, realizing they are part of a team and the friendships and dedication it takes to play sports are terrific to witness.

All these games explain our weekends. Between practices, his Hockey and his sister, PGD#1  playing basketball, it keeps us busy traveling for their games besides the adventures which come up along the way.  All of them making nice memories!
Yesterday was another travel day with the whole family packed into the van.  So tack one up for another escapade!   Am starting to think our last name truly is the Griswolds, which friends have kindly referred to our tribe for years!  LOL
Stay warm and those of you that were snowdumped on, be careful shoveling!

Your grandson looks right at home on the ice. Never a good idea to pass up a opportunity to get the fabric needed and at a great price. Safe travels.

Always fun to find just what you need in the sale bin!

Dar said...

You were lucky to find what you needed and on sale too. Your grandson looks like a professional hockey player already.

ENjoy stitching the words...they certainly are wonderful words to be focusing on!

Yay, if he gets teeth knocked out, they will probably still grow new. LOL He looks adorable. I love the green wool, especially. Acquisition that you need, or that's on a 40% off sale doesn't count! Good luck with those words. Here's hoping you reach your goal.
