So after a long day entertaining my boys at LazerZone (Laser Tag).. I dropped them off at home and decided to make the trip over the river and through the woods to one of my favorite quilt stores.
My plan was to get some good pillowcase fabrics for the April FNSI Conkerr Cancer Pillowcase drive.
It's been a cloudy, rainy & windy day. I had only been in the store about 5 minutes when all of a sudden.. it went dark. The only light was from a couple windows.. but not much at all.
There were only 2 other customers in there besides me. And we all got a good chuckle because the other two BOTH had flashlights in their purses.
Can you believe that? Do you carry a flashlight in your purse? I felt so inadequate.
We used their flashlights to light the cutting table so we could get our fabrics cut. I must say, this was a FIRST for me. It was pretty fun and funny! And, thank goodness I had cash on me - since the debit card machine wasn't working either.
Needless to say - even in the dark I managed to get quite a bit of fabric.
These are all for pillowcases. A lot of my fabrics were even on the "sale" table. SCORE!
I have no idea why this picture turned sideways. Its the only flannel that I bought. I thought it might be good for an outdoorsy teen boy. Very "Minnesota" with the deer, moose and bear. It's very soft.
And this is my favorite - The Jetson's. Do you remember The Jetson's? This was my all time favorite cartoon as a kid! I'm singing the theme song right now as I type this!!
Anyway - I'm getting a head start on my pillowcase sewing this weekend.
We are so grateful for all of you who are participating in this months Friday Night Sew-In. These pillowcases go together so quick and will definitely put a smile on someones face!
