But enough about lifestyles of the middle class and crazy....let's chat about all the yummy goodies that I got while I was out of town. It was killing me to be away from my sewing machine the whole time, but I tried to make up for it by looking at fabrics almost every day! I was a fairly good girl. Well... I wasn't too bad ;)
There were a few gorgeous fabrics that I ordered or picked up right before I left. I just want to eat them, they look so pretty. Some nicey jane, kona in aqua and lizzy house red letter day. Sigh. Adore.
Then I have a total random conglomeration of fabric purchases from all over northern indiana. Good deals I couldn't pass up and little things here and there that I needed for this and that.
I mentioned these patterns that I purchased for fun and was so excited to see in an actual store! Yeah for quilt stores that carry cool patterns. I'll just add these to my ever increasing list of projects. (It's getting out of control)
I saw these cookies in starbucks and could not resist purchasing them. I don't even care what is in this box...all I know is that this is the cutest little box ever and clearly must be made into a quilt.
I found these super fun iron on trims on major clearance at Joann's and couldn't resist. I'm going to make a belt out of the black shimmery one for a dress that I got on clearance because it was missing the belt. It was originally $20 a yard and I got it for $2 a yard. Yeah! super deal. and the others were just a quarter a yard. crazy! I'm still deciding if I want to add them to my doll quilt. It depends on how nuts I go.
And I scored with some of my favorite fabrics at 40% off because they were end of bolt deals. I couldn't pass them up. Especially since I just bought more of the green tulip fabric at full price the week before. Oh well. Now I have more and will perhaps make my little cutie a dress out of these.
I couldn't pass up this cute little bag from Joann's for holding all of my purchases. I figure since I am attending modern quilt guild meetings I'll be needing something to carry my projects back and forth. ;)
Okay and remember the post office mailer I found that matched my fabric? Well I found more fabric at Joann's by the same designer in a super cute print! I just adore the bicycles!! All of the sudden I can spot these designs everywhere!
And then what is a girl to do on a 16 hour car ride but a little hand sewing. I whipped out my new hexagon templates and cut a few pieces off of my new fabric purchases...and ta da! Hexagons that are too cute. I have no idea what these are for yet, but I always have projects coming up and I'm sure that I'll be able to use them soon.
That's probably enough for now. I had a whole bunch of fabric come today in the mail (remember, it's a sickness people...you can never have enough!) that I got from Fabric.com when they were having a blowout sale last week. I got all the fabric for $2 a yard. It's really just wrong not to buy good fabric at that price! ;) At least that's how I convinced myself that I needed a new collection of fabrics. I do have a plan for one of them...that's good, right?
