Well life has been crazy lately and we’re finally back home…to more crazy life. Today is my husband and mine’s 8th wedding anniversary. Someone told me that 8 years is a new beginning and I love that. We’ve had some crazy life the last few years and a new beginning is an interesting idea. But if today was a judge of what we are in for, then baby hold on! It feels like more of the same! I was on the phone all day with different airlines trying to get my brother from our home town to our current home 1000 miles away (let’s just say that I know a lot more about the airline business now!) and my poor husband has been overwhelmed taking care me while I take of my brother that he had a little fender bender with our brand new mini van. Happy 8 years to us. We know how to celebrate in style. LOL. I was just glad that I had not planned on getting any sewing done today because it would have been a lost cause.
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.
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 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. 😉
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?
