|New Fabric and Thread|
I slept practically all morning, today! Even after my daughter called to say good morning, I went back to sleep and slept till almost noon!
Later, in the afternoon, I went to the fabric store to buy the dark pink and blue fabric for the quilts. I took pieces of fabric with me, to match the color, but, of course, because they are two different types of fabric, the shades are not an exact match. But, that is OK, because the blue didn't really have to match and the pink for the border can be a slightly different shade than the pink used for the patches.
I bought four yards of each color, at $1.99/yd. I wanted to make sure I had enough of the fabric for the quilts and if any is leftover, I can make something else with it! Pillowcases, maybe. Or, another quilt! This is how the stash continues to grow!
I remembered to buy more thread, too, at $2.99 per reel. But, I was so determined not to look around at the other fabrics that were on sale, to just buy the fabric I needed and nothing more, that I forgot to buy the quilt batting for the Mountain quilt! Oops! Oh, well, as I told my friend, it'll be a good excuse to go back to the fabric store! As if I need an excuse!
I spent just under $24 on fabric and thread.
I used to have a crafts/hobbies category in my monthly budget, but I eliminated it when I needed to downsize my budget. I will pay for the fabric and thread from my "miscellaneous" budget, for now.
It was 95F when I left the house, around 2:00 p.m. It was 101F when I came back, one hour later! Today's high of 102F was reached shortly after that!
After I came home, I called neighbor T and then, went over to visit her. I took her one of the bottles of sparkling apple-peach juice I had bought, as I know she likes that brand of sparkling apple juice products.
Around 4:00 p.m., I took a nap on the sofa and didn't wake up until almost 7:00 p.m.! Guess I was tired!
My half sister had called and left a message in the morning, so I called her back and we had a nice chat. Later, I called aunt C and chatted with her. There were phone calls with daughter throughout the day, and later, we video chatted.
In the evening, I cleaned my bathroom, watered the indoor plants, and watered the back garden. I didn't sort through my closet, however, so that's for tomorrow.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Phone call from sister
- Chatting on the phone with aunt C
- Fabric on sale
- Afternoon naps
- Chatting with daughter, throughout the day.
