beautiful day in the neighborhood

Mr. Rogers used to sing that little ditty on his morning children's show...but it certainly is going to be a beautiful day today. The sun is shining already and it isn't supposed to be so unbearably hot. Each day when I get up I am so thankful ....

Yesterday I traveled to my favorite quilt shop, Serendipity, with a quilting pal. It is about a half hour drive so we usually try to find someone to go along.  I really wasn't shopping for anything in particular but did realize that my stash was a little low on greens. These are the fabrics I found on the bargain shelves. I really didn't need the blue water fabric as I have one that is similar, but I couldn't pass up a sale and since I live near the beach I am sure I will probably find a special project to use it

Now today, I have to get busy quilting.

Also, a big thank you goes to those who commented about my question a few posts back. I was worried about each applique block being exactly the same as the others in the quilt -perfectionist that I am. I realized from their comments that quilts are individual artistic works and slight variations make them interesting and unique....
Oh by the way, those who follow my blog may hear a big announcement soon....can't say much now but regular readers will likely be interested.

Lovely fabrics. You know you can't go into a fabric shop without buying something, whether you need it or not. LOL Have a great day. Winona
