|796.42 is the Dewey # for running|
I woke up in a swivet on Sunday realizing that I had two audio reviews due to Library Journal two weeks ago, a column for the Zion-Benton News due on Tuesday, and two book reviews for a program at the ALA Annual Conference at the end of June. I am pleased to report that the LJ reviews and the ZBNews column are in and the ALA reviews are underway.
T-shirt quilt #1 is finished -- quilted and bound. T-shirt quilt #2 is set, basted, and half-quilted. Hooray!
This was a week of fabric acquisition rather than use.
On my way back from the attorney's office I stopped at Hancock Fabrics. I bought these Indonesian batiks on clearance (50% off).
When I got home I found that the Whatchagot Box arrived. Joan in Indiana sent this wonderful assortment of fabric and patterns. Thank you!
Batting is 40% off at Joann's. I decided to buy an entire bolt of Warm & Natural (40 yards) -- three $25 gift cards and the sale would save a lot. After the clerk rang up the purchase she gave me a 30% off coupon because I'd spent more than $50. I got to thinking: batting would be on sale after the promo. If I returned the batting and spent $50 on something else then I'd have sale price + gift cards + 30% off --- another $90 savings on that batting. The clerk processed the return and put my name on the bolt (so no one else would buy it). I bought some thread and these 50%-off-Red Tag bargains [that's $2.50/yd] to total $50.00.
I went back to Joann's on Sunday to get the batting. Now I am well-supplied.
[List price with tax: $632.57. After the sale and the 30% coupon, plus tax: $265.56. I saved $367.01.]
