Happy Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving Day here in Canada. I cooked a turkey yesterday and we had a yummy feast with the kids and some of their friends.  It was a lot of fun!


I did buy fabric this week.  But I absolutely HAD to!  No frivolous purchase was made.  No purchase just because it said, “BUY ME”.  No purchase because it happened to jump into my arms and fall in love with me.  None of that.  It was all necessary.  At least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it! unknown-jpg

The photo on the left below shows the brown background fabric I bought to do a Jelly Roll Mystery at the guild.  (I already had the jelly roll, but NOTHING in my stash worked with it.)

The photo on the right shows some flannel backing and binding fabric for a baby quilt.  (I’ll how a picture once the quilt is completed and gifted).


With doing mystery quilts that will not be finished by the end of the year, I will be adding 3 more quilts to next year’s UFO list!  Groan.   However, except for buying the brown background fabric, all of the material is coming from my stash!  YEAH!!!

  1. The good news is you ARE making progress on both the stash and the UFOs! If you hadn’t done all this work this year, you’d be way behind where you are. You Go!


  2. Hi Gail,
    Happy Thanksgiving a day late! Good job on the minimum fabric purchasing. It is hard to keep blinders on when looking for fabric, and to stay focused on just what you need! ~smile~ Roseanne


    • Well, when you have the amount of impulsive purchased fabric that is just sitting around, the new, bright and shiny, wonderful fabrics are starting to be frivolous to me! 🙂

    • Beth – you made me laugh! Now that I’m really trying hard to use up my stash – I’m starting to consider fabric that doesn’t have an immediate purpose as frivolous! 🙂
