Home again

Well, yesterday was an interesting travel day for sure! My son and I left for the airport at 3:45 in the morning. This turned out to be the middle of a storm producing record breaking amounts of rain in the Phoenix area! Main highways were closed due to flooding and many vehicles were stranded. What should have been a 35 minute drive took 2 1/2 hours! Thankfully, God was with us and we got there and my son got home safely. I missed my flight but was able to reroute and made it home at 10:30 last night.

One adventure I found time for, was a visit to SAS Fabrics.


I learned about this gem of a place via Christine who blogs at Triangles & Squares.

I wish I had remembered to take a picture of the inside. It is a huge warehouse type place and they have anything and everything you could want for any type of sewing project. I only frequent the quilting cottons. They have remnants ranging from 1/4-8 yards. All $3.99 a yard. These are quilt shop quality fabrics and you never know what you might find. Here is my haul starting with some vintage Repro prints:


A few modern prints:

A fun novelty print:

And a big piece of this great print for Quilts of Valor.

It is good to be home. I need to unpack and do some laundry before working until 9 tonight. If I get enough coffee, I might even get the borders sewn on this QOV.


Have a great Tuesday and thanks to everyone for sticking with me even when I haven’t responded to comments while out of town.

    No problem on the not commenting … we leave Friday, and while our trip will be a relaxing one spent at the beach, I’m not sure I’ll be online enough to post, let alone comment! πŸ˜‰ Good luck on your long day.

    First and foremost, I’m glad you and your son made it through the flooded roads ok. My eldest son lives in Phoenix and the poor guy has been hit hard twice in the past three weeks with water entering his home. I’ll have to Google SAS Fabrics so I can check it out the next time I go there. That eagle piece is gorgeous!! Great find!

  3. I can’t believe you drove through that! It seemed like everything was closed here in Phoenix due to the flooding. We saw some crazy photos of people’s cars underwater – yikes! Glad you made it home safely!

  4. Glad you made it home safe. I saw the little photo on my phone of your blog post and I immediately knew where you’d been πŸ™‚ It’s probably a good thing I don’t live in Phoenix anymore lol!
