Unexpected & Expected Purchases

Today was my first guild meeting for '08-'09. We always take a Summer brake off from regular meetings. A guild member passed away over the summer and her family was selling a lot of her quilting supplies and fabric. I had been wanting to add to my homespun stash and look what I picked up! The price tag for this was $13.00. I can handle that! That was an unexpected purchase.
There is a quilting store in the same town that my guild meets. I hadn't been there all Summer so I decided that I needed to go there to see what was new. I also wanted to pick up a few autumn type fabrics. Well, I found the fabrics I wanted (the expected purchases) and I also found a book that seemed to call my name. It wasn't an autumn inspired book, but a Winter/Christmas book. Well, it was over 90 degrees outside today and the snowman was really nice to look at. The book had to come home with me too. My unexpected purchase. Come Winter I may wish for the Summer weather again, but today cold sounded good!

Both your expected and your unexpected purchase look great! We are supposed to get that 90 degree weather tomorrow or Thursday - I might have to look for a winter book to cool off!

I miss my guild meetings!!! Since I moved from the small town, this big city guild thing is just not grabbin me! 300+ members. I liked the 50 range better.
Great fabrics. I am not ready for the snow/winter stuff yet!

You got some beautiful homespuns there! Quilts from homespun fabrics are so cozy and warm. I think they make perfect autumn quilts too.
