Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. ~ Psalm 103:2, NLT
I went to a beautiful LQS store here. I was so excited since my experience in the Clovis LQS had been so positive It is just full of beautiful fabrics, sample quilts, sewing machines, and patterns. Most of the fabric is $10.95 and up. Fat quarters are $3.25. They do have a little corner full of little bags of what they call "snipppets" and those were a good deal and full of different fabric scraps perfect for my hexie flowers. There was a woman there buying fabric for the backing on her GFG. She had the scrappy quilt top with her and I proceeded to "gush" over it because it was so beautiful. She was not interested in anything I had to say about it although she did let me look at it. It seemed she was on a mission to get her backing and didn't want to talk about her quilt top. Maybe it's just me, but every quilter, up to now, that I had ever met wanted to talk quilts. My experience with the shop keeper was not much better since she saw that I was just looking at "snippets" and she was involved in selling the $12.95 a yard fabric. While I was looking at the lady's quilt top, she asked me if I need help so I asked her for a book or pattern for the clamshells I'm interested in making and she asked, "Well didn't you see any in the clearance area you were looking in? I know we don't have any in our regular priced books." Ummmmm, I just told her I hadn't seen anything, thanked her and bought my snippets and left. At least the "snippets" were plentiful and pretty and I'm glad I bought them. All I have to say about that now is, "Oh well. One less store I ever have to visit."
Here's another hexathon I've finished. This is #13. It kind of looks like a regular hexie flower I once made since I used the same fabrics.
That is all.
