Husband spoiled me rotten today and lovely wishes from both children made for a happy day. Husband and I pruned roses. Bought some BIG Western Red Cedars for our reforestation project in the field and wandered about in the lovely little village of Fort Langley. Fort Langley is just a short drive from home and is filled with antique and collectibles stores and there just happens to be a nice little quilt shop. Husband was most accommodating as I wandered in and out of places. I like to check out the collectibles so I know how well I am doing with my garage sale and thrift store finds. Oh my goodness have I ever got some bargains lately at least compared to what is being charged retail in these shops!
The quilt store was fun. They had a large basket filled with scrappy bits. All you can stuff into a little ziploc bag for $3. I took this on as a personal challenge. I selected some choice bits. Mainly full width of fabric strips. I methodically stacked the fabric in bunches and rolled tightly then stuffed the rolls in the bag. Husband was astonished how much fabric I had rolled into that bag. It is a rare talent for sure!
Hope your Mother's day was happy! And I leave you with ducks in the blueberries behind the grape vines. Let's just say we have had a lot of rain!
