well, it's been a while since I had any quilting news! Unfortunately I haven't much to add! Though I did find out there's a quilting club less than a mile down the road... it seems they meet mid-week in the daytime, so not likely I'll be able to make the meetings, but maybe I can attend some of the other events they do - it seems quite an active club! ... it's not like I can even suggest an after-work meeting since my hours are till 7pm, so it's too late to fit anything productive in by the time I've had dinner! ah well, I'm still glad to have a job again :) ... I'll just have to motivate myself on the quilting :)

Since the last photo update I've grabbed some more bargains! Yesterday we went to the Goodwill store near work and I found a nice yellow Perry Ellis shirt for $4. Today we went to the new Goodwill boutique, Blue, which specializes in "high end" items, and I finally found a pair of shoes in my size - a pair of brown Ralph Lauren ones for $15 - and a Pierre Cardin new belt for only $7.

The Goodwill stores in Rochester are part of the organization I work for, and all the items are donated, so it's a great way to get some real bargains and help fund raise!

On a less charitable bargain hunt, here's some of my recent eBay finds... a pair of Levis 501s for $13 including postage, and a new Versace jumper for $30... the jumper was a good bargain because it was $65 when I first saw it, but when I looked again a few days later it was half price, so I grabbed it! :) ... its retail price was $260 so I was very happy with my purchase!!

With a bit of luck here are the pictures... if Blogger lets me upload them with my screen reading software...

  1. Hi! Nice to see you back! Hope you can get a chance to join in with your local quilt group sometime, you were doing so well at the last one.

  2. Nice jumper and jeans combo going on! Good to finally see the photos! :)

  3. Great dress sense, really terrific bargain hunting . . . and isn't that beard new from the picture in the suit in February? Comes in handy in the cold! I'm anxious to read on and find out if you found quilting buddies! I think you did from the newest posts. There's a Goodwill near my house and I stop there often. I haven't had much luck with clothes, but I got a GREAT red whistling teakettle for $2.50.
