    Thank you!
    not that I dislike it but I am not inclined towards it. Sometimes I wonder if it's all my mother' fault. she just love greens and she make a lot of my clothes when I was young. I must have worn to much green in my youth.
    She could not help it she was a 6th generation irish descendant (and could not speak english.... ) what time does to us sometimes loll

    Your fabrics are luscious! I have had to learn that I don't have to buy when I go to a LQS. We have five with 6 miles along with JoAnns, Hancocks, and Hobby Lobby. Although I have to say I ordered some fabric online and even with all those shops I had a difficult finding a background fabric to match. It was rather discouraging.

    I'm so glad you had a good trip ... especially, glad you made it to my home state of Tennessee. I have several LQSs that I love! Like you it is hard to leave one without some fabric, even if it is just a fat quarter ... I have to have something. Have fun with your fabric!

    Thank you all!
    I think I understand now what is that disease called "fabric addicted" loll.
    Of course I took this occasion to buy what I could afford because I know I won't be going back that soon. Quite a far distance from home...I bought some to give to my SIL who has been a fabric addict for many years and with less choise than I could see in only a few days.

    WHat a nice souvenir. I know what you are saying: I just spent 2 weeks in Germany and my sister took me to one of the few craft-stores in the rural area. I KNEW that the fabric would be expensive, but to see it first hand is something else. I didn't buy much.
