The first quilt of 2014 is finished. It was made with all scraps except for the batting and of course the thread. I bought the batting and thread on sale and with a coupon at Joann's. They have great sales.
I thought it be fun to make 12 quilts in 2014 but realistically, I am shooting to make 6. So 5 more quilts in almost 11 months, maybe!
Sewing is especially thrifty if you end up with gift fabric.
With the cold front here, I have pretty much stayed home all week. This morning, we did a couple errands and I went to a thrift store while my husband went by the bicycle store.
The kitchen things were all 1/2 price. All this stainless steel Farberware was $16. There is a huge covered skillet, a small skillet, a double boiler, a steamer, 3 1 quart saucepans and a 4 quart stock pot. My daughter wants new saucepans and was going to buy some today. I think I got all the saucepans she could need. I am keeping the big skillet and maybe the steamer.
My town has 5 nice thrift stores but they do price things differently. I like to shop at the one with low priced children's clothes. I "like" them on Facebook and knew from a post this morning that their kitchen stuff was half price so when I saw the cookware, I knew it was a very good deal.
