The Green Fuzzies

I stopped in at Michaels yesterday and I found several really good deals. Yeah deals!

I bought four bunches of white lilies to put in a sap bucket for $2 each. Not bad. I also found a couple tall pots and painted them white. I wanted them for some amaryllis stems that I bought at Christmas, although they turned out to be too small for those stems. They were cheap anyway. I'll find something else to use those for. I found one of those PVC quilt hoops for $7. They aren't my favorite way to quilt, but you can't beat the price.

My favorite find was this yarn for $2. Cheap cheap! Its Moda Dea Eden in Fig Leaf. I have been really good and haven't bought any yarn this winter. Its not as if I don't have enough scarves already. But you can't pass up yarn at that price. So I started a scarf. Its just so soft and pretty.

Blocks 1 & 2

These are the first two blocks. Can't decide what I think. Part of me is excited, but another part of me just doesn't think they're quite right. They're not laying flat. I'm not sure why that is, but I'll have to work on it. All in all, I think they're interesting. I never really like a top until its a quilt, anyway. We'll just have to keep going. Its ridiculously easy, though. No real thought required.
