Somebody Stop Me!!!

So ... This whole fabric-buying thing has become an official addiction. One of our local sewing stores was having a sale last weekend ... fat quarters for $1 each!!! ... which meant that my sister in law, Ani, Stephanie, and I simply *had* to pay them a visit.


I ended up walking out with this stack of yummy fat quarters, some yardage, and a fun pattern for baby clothes. Ani started a nice stash of fat quarters, and Suzanne hit the jackpot with the full Posh collection in fat quarters, along with additional individual fat quarters and some super-fun oil cloth to cover the kids' play tables.

Then, to make matters worse ... we drove up the road to our very favorite quilting store and purchased even more fabric!!!


I definitely have plans to make a reversible coffee cozy out of the red & whites, and a fun bag out of the orange & yellow whimsical fabric.

I would say that I need help, but I'm not sure I'm ready to face my addiction quite yet.

What yummy fabric! To say it's addictive would be an understatement.

I would say that it is justifiable; in fact you were SAVING MONEY. So, rather than being addicted, you were being thrifty! Right? That's the logic I use on my husband all the time...

i definitely like how you think, Kristin! How can I possibly be expected to pass up $1 fat quarters, right??
