I think it was an oversight, Gayle, but I noticed it, too. I guess we make do with the stashbusters page. I am slowly getting things to a point that I will actually be able to declare something soon.

Hmm, I just noticed there is no Scrap busting challenge for 2020.  Oh well, I appliqued 63 blocks using mostly scraps.

Beth, there must be at least a dozen quilting stores near your area of that state,( and l'm not counting big box), so it's not a surprise that some are unabled to remain competative. Losing customer base to online shopping has already put a huge stain on smaller shops of all kinds everywhere. Those who were debating retiring have decided it's time to go, and others have had to forego their lease and downsize or carry on business as a sideline from their garage from home , (pending zoning restrictions). It's the same all over. Sadly,we'll see a huge difference in how we'll be buying anything from now on in. I'm the gal who loves to touch and see my fabrics , sigh. So far, l've avoided going online for it.

Oh Beth, I am sorry stores are closing but happy you are getting such good bargains.  wow wish I was close, I need solid colors.  Lots and lots of printed fabric but next to no solids. I am scheduled to close on my house that selling on August 19.  It has been a long rough year so far, but getting better.

Happy sewing to all!

Agreed, is everyone sewing or tending to the garden?  With all the stay at home orders, thought there might be more interaction.  I get it though, better to have fun in the sewing room than online.

There are several quilt shops closing in our area, four already.  Going to be difficult getting fabric unless we go online here soon.  So sad.

Hello everyone.  You all have become so quiet. does that mean you are sewing?  I miss the interaction with you all.  Happy sewing

I am finding myself having issues focusing.  Oh, that tax thing.  Now to decide which project I want to add to my already overwhelming list of projects to do. LOL

Thinking Bonnie Hunter's Mystery for the COVID-19 will be fun.  I am going to round up the colors and get set to go.  Seeing how my fabric is all pre-washed already, I am one step ahead.

Hi, Gayle and Beth! So good to see you here!

Hello Gayle:  Good to know you are still out there pushing forward.  Keep safe everyone.

Hello everyone.  I am trying to get back to quilting.  I have missed you all.
