Exciting Day

Today, I worked at the shop. We were pretty busy for most of the day, but at one point when there was no one in the shop, Linda and I threw up my Jitterbug blocks.

I can't wait to start sewing them into rows!

We also got some very, very cute fabric in from Robert Kaufman!!

Those strips will make awesome bindings!

And it has turtles!

We got a new outlet store right down the street from my house. A little birdie (Cathy) told me this morning at IHOP that this place had $10 Crocs. I just had to check it out on my way home. I hit pay dirt!

And then, when I got home, my Amazon.com order was waiting for me! Two new quilt books! I am very excited about the Judy Martin book. Even more so after seeing the patterns in the book! It's awesome!

So far, it has been a very eventful day! :)
