Yesterday morning my buddy was sitting in the rocker in my room having a little visit before we headed to the promised land (fabric stores) The pasta supply caught her eye.
Friend - Debby, is Bob storing his ammo under your bed?
Me - No why do you ask?
Friend - Well what in the world is sticking out from under there?
Me - Pasta
Friend - WHAT!!! as she is getting down on her knees to take a peak.
Me - Yep, picked it up on sale 5 for $4.00 but I had coupons for $.50 @ on 2 (double coupon day as well) so I got them for 5 at $ 2.00, great deal!!
Friend - Lord have mercy I have heard it all now. Have you lost your mind?
Me - Nope, just trying to hanging on to a little more cash.
Friend - Laying on my floor laughing. You are crazy as a bed bug.
Me - Hush up, it takes 3 pounds of pasta to feed my crew dinner. Go find your purse, we have shopping to do
Friend - Are we buying pasta?
Me - Shut up!!!!
It has been a LONG FULL 2 days of sew much fun with my buddy. We were able to knock out a quilt top for her along with a table runner from her leftovers the first afternoon/night. It took some peach cobbler and home made ice cream at midnight to see us through, can't think of a sweeter way to end the night.
Yesterday we hit the floor in full gear for the breakfast special then on to fabric stores. Oh my. Two quilt shops where we both spent like we were the Vanderbilt's, the fabric warehouse where we both became overwhelmed and had to leave with not too much, and last but not least the yarn/thread mill that is still around. I heard about the thread mill from from some ladies in one of the quilt stores awhile back. No more waiting for sales and coupons to replenish my supply I hit the mother lobe at this place.
I sent my buddy on her way with a bushel basket of home canned foods and a pile of veggies from the garden to share with her elderly Mom and Dad. I will be headed up to her house in the VERY near future for a visit with her folks and another sewing marathon before she has to return to the classroom in August.
Life is GOOD, but our bank account is not looking so good after yesterday. We have plenty of fresh veggies in the garden and are all set on pasta, we shall survive.
