Out of Control!

After work today, I went to a quilt shop that is on the other side of town. If I go from work, it's not too far...but from home, it's a good 45 minute drive. I needed to check out what they had and, ohboy, it was too much fun! And, I will go back! I had been there before, but probably back in 2003...but, hey! My name was still in the computer! ha!

Here's my stash-building for today...

A bundle of 8 fat quarters for $8...they are gorgeous! Will have to go back for more, methinks.

27 piece charm pack of 5" squares...

These are the fabrics in the charm square of each.

Had to have this lovely magazine, which is full of ideas for gift-giving...

Speaking of mags, I bought this book a month or so ago (at Hobby Lobby, my all-time fave store)...the aprons are so dang cute, I may have to make at least one of each!

And, that's what I have for today!

OH! Have to say...only SIX more days til the Newsboys' new album comes out! Not that I'm counting, or anything. onetwothreefourfivesix...SIX DAYS!!!!

Oh, Jacque, you have the quilting bug bad!!! When I started quilting I just bought fat quarters, then half yard pieces then yards and yards, I was out of control for sure, but loved it!!! Isn't it fun??

It IS totally fun, Jane! And, to think, it's not been that long since I got rid of (finally) all the fabric I had here! Saved some of the best pieces, but still...had so much more that is gone!

But, remember, right now, while I am teaching this online class, I have more now is the time to plan ahead! Course, doesn't mean I pass up a pretty fabric that I have no use for at the moment! ha! And, it's not just quilting! I have so many sewing projects in mind, I'm making myself dizzy just trying to keep them all straight! ha!

You are in trouble now, lol.
I am the same way, I cannot walk into a quilt store without buying some new fabric.
