Mail Call!

Note to self:  
Write "I will buy no more fabric!" 
on the blackboard 100 times.
Look what has come in the mail in the last few days...

Now, really, this was all needed.
The 3 pieces of black Au.then.tic is for Paul's quilt.
More on that at another time.

The Frolic charm pack is to add to the
charm pack from Bren to make a baby quilt...
and the Frolic brown/green yardage is for the backing.

The Luna Notte charm pack is for my romance stars challenge quilt I posted about here.
I thought it might be more fun to use the 
charms with the fat quarters...
more stars that way.  

Most of this fabric was on sale...from different sources. 
Au.then.tic is becoming rather difficult 
to find...but a few Etsy shops had it.

And, hey...just a quick shout-out to 
Leah over at Burgundy Buttons.
Great service and terrific sales!
Love dealing with her!   

ohgosh...I did a foolish thing last night.
I made a list of my wip's (works in progress),
AND I also listed the fabrics I have enough of
(or most of what I need) to put a quilt together.
Holy Schmoly.
I don't often go out and just buy fabric,
so it really surprised me!
(perhaps I should also write on the blackboard to never make this list again!)

As of this moment,
I am on a fabric-buying moratorium.

At least for new projects.
Wish me luck!

Now that is awesome. What great fabric. It looks like fun for you.
Hey the word I have to type in for word verification right now is " Adork" How funny is that?
I am feeling a bit that way right now, been up to long.
I have never seen one that made a word that made sense. :) It makes me laugh.

Let's see it's been a few hours since you posted - still on that moratorium? LOL!

Great fabrics

Great fabric buys and they will make wonderful quilts.
I am lucky enough to have a folk art quilt store nearby, so when I need a fabric, I know where to go.

Love the fabrics, especially the dark floral (of course)and the polka dots...well, can't say you don't have anything to do!
