Wednesday I was at the quilt shop in Morris, IL for a meeting and picked up a couple bargains. There is enough of the one on the left for a backing, and yes, that is a Kaffe dot, both on sale for $4 a yard. I got all 2.75 yards of the dot.
A friend called yesterday and gave me the name of the sticky traps for spiders and crickets. I hope it will trap centipedes too. There are 4 in the package so one went under the steps coming down to the basement and the other 3 went under shelf units. As large as my basement is, I think I'll go back and get one more package.
I invested in one of the new rulers with diamond dust on one edge. It is supposed to sharpen your blade as you cut. I got the big one, 6.5" x 24.5". It has a gritty sound when you are cutting but not as bad as I had heard it described by some others. I'm anxious to do some cutting now after several days of reorganizing.
