Home Again

Elaine and I had so much fun.  We were talking on the way home and both agreed that it seemed like just yesterday since we left home and yet weeks since we’d seen our husbands and dogs and kids and grandkids for her.

Elaine managed to visit nine quilt shops in five days; I hit three.  All three shops I visited were very nice, though one was definitely my favorite of the three.  The stash report this week is going to be sad.  My only hope is that Vicky posts her report.  Vicky, don’t let me down!


I found this very nice chicken fabric.  Don’t ask me what I’m going to do with it but I like it.


Got these tone on tones.  I can never get enough of this type fabric.


The dog isn’t new . . guess you noticed that.  But he surely was glad to have me home.  The purple and golds will go into a quilt for my niece’s daughter whose school colors are . . you guessed it  . . purple and gold.

Do I really have to add all this yardage up for my stash report?  Yes, I’ll be honest and I’ll do it but . . however bad the totals may be, I had lots of fun!

    Oh, so you’re looking at me to make you look good, huh? ROFLOL. Well, you’re in luck! I won’t let you down!

    Fabrics are gorgeous. And from the leftovers on the purple/gold, just throw in some green and you’ll have a Mardi Gras quilt!

    Maybe Vicky didn’t buy any fabric this week. Maybe you will be the only non-stashbuster. Wouldn’t that be funny? Anyway, I love all the tone on tones that you got. The colours are amazing especially that light blue one. That’s one of my favourite colours.

    You can never have too much tone on tone fabric. The colors you selected are very nice.

    Now the chicken fabric….well Judy, you just have to have it and we completely understand. It is kinda like me buying Dalmation fabric ( although Roxie has been in dog heaven for 2 years now). I can’t wait to see what you make with it. You always come up with fantastic quilts that give us inspiration.
