I am hoping to catch the Inauguration Tuesday! I have a 4th grade class (actually I think it is the entire 4th grade squeezing intot the room next door) watching the process!! I think I will be viewing it via the computer and sharing it with whatever class is my room at the time... No matter what the age this is a historic moment!

Disappearing nine patches....

Since I left early Thursday to get Miss Em from school (she was sick) then I left early Friday (caught whatever Em had!) and With the 6 inches of snow that fell Sat into Sun. We did nothing all weekend!! It was great!! we watched movies and sewed. I decided to work on a disappearing nine patch quilt very impromptu...

Of course I changed the layout and added a few more blocks. 

Then today came this package!! Weighing about 8.5 pounds! 
i had forgotten about the approx. 15 yards of scraps I had won from Some art fabric!! More pictures to come!!

Good Buys and DD Mystery Progress

Ok so I went to my local Marden's !! Deals on fabric!! I love this place!! Bolts and Bolts of good fabric way discounted because they buy surplus!! The most expensive was 3.99 a yard!!

I walked away spending close to 75.00 on fabric but 24.00 was 8 yards of this!!It has little flip flops all over!! Perfect for Miss Em's Quilt!! It will be used as a backing !! And a little extra for mess ups or what not!! I bought a lot because you never know if you will ever see it again!!
This is just a little more of some fabric i bought between Marden's and Joanns
I am envisioning a quilt of some kind but not sure....
Then we have my progress on the DD Mystery Quilt... was not sure if I liked the rust colored fabric in place of the Cheddar but I did peek at steps 2, 3 , 4 and put them all together and do like the combo!!

At Joann's I also picked up 3 of these on clearance Cinderella, Princesses and Little Mermaid fabric books.

and this on clearance!! Em loves Prates for some reason and I thought I would make her this....
