Another appointment

Today is running day. Mom has an appointment and she needs groceries. So in a short while will be ready to run out the door and get it all done.

Cool this morning, but it is suppose to get to 70 degrees today. I'm ready for 70 degrees for the rest of the Spring and Summer. It won't ever happen though.

Went shopping briefly yesterday looking for purples. OMGosh so many shades and yet not the right one. I guess I wasn't in the mood to settle for just anything. Either to blue or to pink. So I keep looking. Not something I need to finish something I just noticed I didn't have good selection in my stash and wanted to keep my eyes open.

I would love to go to the fabric store in Princeton, Illinois. It is about 35 miles from me. The owner started this store for her daughter who loved to sew. The daughter has passed away, but she hangs onto the store. She loves fabrics and yet she doesn't sew or quilt. There are 7000 bolts of name brand designer fabric there. She buys whole collections of fabric lines and you really have to be looking for something specific to make it a quick trip otherwise you are there for many many hours. She has taken two old store fronts and made them into one big fabric store.

The rummage sale season has been slow starting this year. There is a big sale this weekend so I will get out of the house to go to it. Enjoy your day. Chris

I think that store closed last year after a huge sale. She really did have a lot of fabric.
