A Quilter's Dream

Here in our neck of the woods yesterday was the first day of school.  Yiippeee!!! Woot Woot!!!! Happy Dance!!!!  Oh sorry I got off track a little.  Don't get me wrong I love having my kids home in the summer, but there comes a point where he gets bored and needs to go back.  OK OK I NEED him to go back. LOL.  Anyway, I was planning on catching up with housework, which I did, but needed to run a couple errands myself.  My daughter was suppose to work but they called her off.  I was hoping for several alone hours, but that didn't happen.  So, I had to do a couple things at work and decided then to hit up the local Goodwill and craft store to celebrate the first day of school.

I won't bore you with what I got at the craft store, BUT will gloat  tell about my Goodwill finds. LOL.  I haven't been to this particular store in awhile.  It is only about 20 minutes away, but that is 20 minutes I could be working on crafting or housework.  So, since I was in town I stopped and boy am I glad I did!  I hit the motherload of all motherloads of good stuff.  I know in this store there are certain hot spots for me.  I go to that section first!  In this particular store it is the domestics.  One time I happen to be there when JoAnn Fabrics had donated a ton of fabric and I snatched it up!

At first I didn't see anything good and was starting to get a little down when what did I see....

Beautiful pieced quilt squares!!!!!

I have 2 of each of the above squares.  They are pieced beautifully.

Again awesome!!!!!
Not my favorite colors but....  I can work my magic.

Beautiful fall colored huge 9 patch squares.
And who can pass up fabric.  I just love the eagle fabric.

Last but not least... I will work my magic on the cheese box by painting it.  As for the heart pan I can see a huge wax heart in the near future.
It has certainly been awhile since I shared Goodwill finds with you because most times I find nothing.  I haven't been buying like I used to since I no longer have my booth to stock.  Which is a very good thing because I was getting to be a hoarder.  Oh I'm still a hoarder just not as bad ;-).  LOL.
Until next time... have a great day!!!!
