Look at me having fun!

Today was a fine day!!  All the family drama put aside... time to remember that I , too, have a life.
  Starting with last night, Mr.O'Quilts and I did an early dinner out...out...out...perfect! Portofino's...Thank u Drenna!  
Today, I went to the Guild sit and sew.  There were hardly 10 people there which made for a super relaxing day.  I worked on my London Olympic's quilt with the cuts that Marie brought home for me from her London visit.  Today I made all the four patches!! 
 I worked on some of the lattice for my Granny squares,
 Then started the middle strips on a number of patches for my Chevron string quilt.
Made a few new friends and relaxed...wonderful! 
Sharing below my cool find at Hancock's fabric store.  This past Wednesday I showed up for the Wendover solid sale.  I needed white and I love this Hancock's Wendover white even better than Kona white. 
 Of course, they also had a "blowout" sale.  I saw this print below for $3 a yard and thought it would be great as a backing of a hospital cuddle quilt.  At the cutting table the lady said that it had been marked wrong...It was really 79 cents a yard...wooooohoooo....that and my 15% off senior discount (on the first and third Wednesdays of the month)...made for a pretty grand deal.  I bought some Mary Ellen's Best Press with my 40% off Hobby Lobby coupon plus the 15% off...and I must say that I was happy on Wednesday too.
Springs Industries in Fort Mill, SC had a big sale last weekend and I did not know about it.  Usually one of the Guilds posts it but I seem to have missed it...sad...a missed chance...maybe next year. (U know that there is never enough fabric opportunities!!!)
