Last week was very busy for us. We went to the Apple store 3 times to get our desktop upgraded and it's still not totally done. I don't know why. We may have to go back again. With all our driving around and sitting and waiting I worked on knitting baby caps and cross stitching a new project. (forgot to take pictures of those things).
Now, I am quilting this little quilt - Prairie Huswyfe - that I won from a blog.
My couch project now is sewing the binding onto the back of this quilt.
Saturday was a good day! I needed some fabric for the binding of the above quilt and I got an email from Golden D'Or, a fabric outlet in Dallas. Since we were at the Apple store anyway, I told DH that I wanted to swing by the fabric outlet to see if I could get some blue and brown fabric - I'm low on both. I had received a 30% off coupon (which I thought was just for one regular priced item, but it turned out it was on my total purchase of regular priced items)!! Unfortunately, they don't have many reproduction fabrics and that is what I was looking for, but I did find these that I liked, so I bought 3 yards of each. The "regular" price was $4.50 to $4.99 per yard, so I got all 9 yards at less than $4 per yard!!! I will definitely be going back there more often!
I just read Lori's blog and she asked if any of us collected vintage linens and do we display them. So I took a few pictures.

Have a great week!
