So, I will show you some things I have purchased recently. At the guild retreat I bought this cute little platform that has a spindle for a spool of thread and space to glue your needle threader onto. A member's husband makes them. Very handy.
Last Thursday we went to an estate sale for a former quilter who has gone into assisted living. We were the first to arrive, but did not see a lot I wanted. I did buy 3 yds. of solid flannels. The purchase I am most excited about was some Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks in two sizes. I got 44 blocks that are 3/4" hexagons including an outer round of muslin, plus 13 more without the muslin round. Nine of the complete ones were set together with a green fabric that I will never be able to match. I am sure I can replace them with a similar green fabric.

I am looking forward to making these into a quilt sometime in the future.
May all your ups and downs today be with needle and thread.
