Goodies in the Mail

Today I received a package from Cyndi at Bluebirdswing. I won two patterns from her on her give away last week. Today I got my package and she threw in some extra goodies: three gorgeous fat quarters, and a key fob. I love them. Thanks so much Cyndi!

More good news today. My client who I am making the drapes for, called today and she is going out of town for spring break, so I have another week to finish my drapes. Now I may try to make my youngest daughter an Easter dress before now and Sunday.

I went to Walgreens today and spend $17.00, but saved $25.00. Then I went to Publix and spent $5.00 and saved $6.00. That makes my total savings of $140.00 for the week by using coupons. My favorite deal of the week was one I found today at Publix. I had a manufacturer coupon for $1.50 off of Biz Bleach and I had a store coupon for $1.00 of Biz Bleach. The total price of the Bleach was $3.49 which means I bought it for 99 cents. I was very excited about that. Biz is great for soaking things you think cannot be saved. Just last week I had to soak some white fabric that had mildew stains on it from a leak in my studio. It was almost 4 yards of good fabric and I really didn't want to throw it away. I had to soak it for 4 days. But it all came out except a 2" area that I can cut around.

Now, to top of my good news for the day, I found a coupon for a buy one get one dinner at one of my favorite resturants. I told my boyfriend about it and he is taking me tonight. Woo hoo.....goodies in the mail, saving more money and dinner out. This has been a good day.

Happy sewing and saving my friends,


  1. Not to mention getting an extra week! You had a wonderful day, Susan! Your win from Cyndi is gorgeous!
