More close out?

Well, this is the second chapter of the close out sale.  I had to go back because the price went down and I knew there was more to be bought.  Lets back up a bit here.  After Blizz 2011 and two days of staring out the window at the same beautiful blowing snow I had to get out of the house.  So I grabbed another "fabric hound" and we went BACK to the "close out sale"  It seemed to progress into a "fabric buying frenzy".  It was even better now because if you bought the whole bolt you would get another 10% off.  Who would not do THAT? Right? Right.  When it was all said and done I had bought a whopping 145 yards of fabric with a big smile on my face and a nervous feeling in my stomach. You cannot pass  up a sale like this. (I'm still repeating this over and over and over)  I have enough fabric to play with for a long time.  I can't wait to share it with you.

Close out sale! :)

I had the luxury of finding a close out sale at a Hancock Fabrics.  I LOVE Hancock fabrics but they seem to be harder and harder to find!  The quality of fabric is much better and the fabric is much "hipper" than  "other" fabric stores.  So, I had to buy some because when fabric is on sale that is the time to buy it and if it is far away then you really need to buy as much as you can.  Right? Right.  So 
I did.

This quilt was made a few  years ago for a friend.  I noticed I never showed you the final product.  Well it is!

Blizz Afghan 2011

I've noticed every winter I seem to grab a hook and start to crochet.  This is my third afghan in three years.  I think after this one I need to start gving them a way or donating them to my favorite fundrasing group .."Boobs on the Move"  My friend Terri is a member of this group and they are the fundrasing females.  They do the two day breast cancer walk to raise money for our "bubbies"!So  they are on my mind for a donation for one of their raffles.
I finally finished the afghan and DID take out the white and I love, love, love it.The colors definitely speak to me.  It is long and warm and will always remind me of the Blizz of 2011.
