Last night's guild meeting was lots of fun. It's so nice to have all these smiley women come up to my table and say, "Hi!! I read your blog!". (Thanks each and every one of you!). And let me tell you, you all sure do eat a lot of cookies. ; ) I made cute ghostie cookies and when I went to take a photo for this blog, they were gone! lol Not a crumb left.
I sold a lot of fabric at my flea market table, but here's what was left over...
Something tells me those FQs would make a great scrappy quilt full of triangles! : ) Yes it would. And of course, with coins in hand, I drift over to the other tables and spend my money while it's still warm. lol I could not stop oogling over this huge piece of cloth. Home it came...

It just did something to my soul! I don't even really like tie dye or batik, or blue for that matter. But this cloth - over 2 meters of it - is so succulent! It has a lovely pattern of greys, and then there is this subtle stamped imptint of pretty celtic looking designs. It just amazed me so much! I think I'll hang it on the wall and just meditate in front of it. That is some serious cloth-worshipping isn't it!? hehe
There was a magazine swap too. Here's one I came home with. I have always thought those braids look like wheat, and so it was my plan to some day incorporate yellow braids into a prairie quilt. Isn't this cover quilt stunning!? It makes me want to redo my brown-eyed susans quilt...

I just love yellow and white and oranges and greens and browns and reds so much. lol As we all packed up our tables at the end of the night, I had to buy these fat quarters quickly before they were gone. They are so cute...
It's so fun to get new inspiration. And to top it all off - (YAY!!) the first snow came overnight!!

Her tracks are all over the yard. I really look forward to new landscapes and photography. Bring it on!
