Bad news today. My LQS is going out of business. It is the only quilt shop in 120 any direction. But she is having a great 50% off everything sale. I went by the store yesterday, the first day of the sale, and Lori was SWAMPED. She had a friend that was going to help but her friend was sick. So I stayed and helped. I started with putting bolts away, and then folding cut pieces, putting the yardage in bags. Then when Lori needed a break, I started cutting fabric too. Some ladies got 2 yard cuts of something like 30 bolts. By the end of the day, she had about 100 empty bolts. I stopped by there this morning and it was much more manageable. She is going to stay in business until most everything is gone. Sad, sad, sad.
I did buy some fabric at her sale, all those brown pieces in the background. My DH wants a coffee quilt so I chose coffee colors. And then the mailman brought a swaps package. :) That's all the fat quarters. And the three on the right, I just liked those. And for a friend, I bought 12 yards of a dark green floral and 12 yards of a light green floral to make some valances. She is disabled, so I will do it for her.
