There's no place like Home

Well we are back at home. The drive home was uneventful, thankfully. Unfortunately I didn't get to any of my quilt stores :(
Here is a cute wall hanging I picked up at Joann's. This is one of my favourite sayings.
I picked up these fat quarters from Walmart. I didn't find any fabric stacks at Joann's. I was pretty disappointed. I was thinking of getting some fabric cut but the line ups were crazy, so I skipped it, maybe next time.
Won't this fabric make a cute purse or bag? I think so.
I found these crows for my Halloween display. Hubby encouraged me to buy them.
I really don't like crows they get under my skin. My neighbours like to feed them, drives me crazy! They caw all day long, I swear this is one of the most irritating noises there is. Plus they scare all the tiny birds away.
It is so nice to be home. As much as I love to shop...I could have done more :) Its nice to be back in my own home.
Joys of staying in a hotel.
1. Checking the bed for bed bugs, not.
2. Walking on the carpets with bare feet...I never do this, gross
3. Hearing snoring all during the night from the guests....oh wait that was my hubby, sorry LOL.
Its my FIL's wife, Joy's, birthday is Tuesday. I wanted to get her the Carol Burnett show DVD's. I couldn't find them anywhere.
She loved my purse I made a while back. So I figured I would make her one. So I 2 days to do it in. I know what I will be doing tomorrow. Wish me luck.


  1. I agree about the Crows and how annoying they are. But for Halloween they are AWESOME! Hehe, I guess this is what you were talking about when you were thinking of me?

  2. Sounds like you had a great shopping trip...minus the deer meets jeep episode.

    (I'm sneaking on from my hotel room in Virginia Beach to say hi....and, yes, I checked the bed for bed bugs, too!!! AAACK!!!! Thank goodness I didn't find any....or I wouldn't be here.....I'd be high-tailing it back home with my tail between my legs.)

  3. I love that fabric bundle you bought. Our Wal-Mart did away with their fabric section. Probably because a Hobby Lobby opened across the street. (Yay!) I hope you post a pic of the purse when you complete it. Good luck!:-)

  4. Love the wall hanging and glad you made it home safely!

  5. It sounds like you really had a great time on your trip! So many fun goodies! I like the crows. They need a bit of altering, if you ask me, but then again, I tend to see EVERYTHING that way! HA!

  6. Tracy,
    Sounds like you had quite an eventful trip! You brought in quite a haul. I especially like the Graphic 45 paper, I've never seen that.
    Those fabrics will make a pretty purse, please post a picture when you're done.
    I agree with you about the crows though-hate them!

  7. I'm glad you had a good time on your trip. I'm so jealous over all the stuff you bought! Now all you need is about 4 more hours in the day so you can play with all your new goodies.

  8. These are some really cute finds, Tracy!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
