    No, no pictures yet. :P I just ordered 65 yards of Bali Prints at Thousands of Bolts. It's on sale for $5.95 per yard and I just scrolled through all of them and clicked on everything that I liked.

    Got a bonus at work and I indulged myself a little bit. Last year I got a longarm machine with my bonus so I'm being a little conservative this year.

    Having it delivered to work since I have had packages disappear off my porch and no way do I want this one to go missing.

    Yum! I did that at Keepsake Quilting last time I went up there. What a great high that much new fabric all at once can be!! Have a wonderful time unpacking! :D

    Good for you! I've gotten real conservative in the fabric shopping too.

    I think the most I've ever bought at one time was 12 yards for my Patriotic quilt because that was totally planned, fabric figured up and bought specifically for it.

    I can hardly wait!

    I got a lot of blues and beige/whites with blues and I am thinking of something very simple with big pieces to show the pretty fabric. I have a pattern called 4-Square Fun that I did in CW repros for my brother and it was very quick to do.

    Great use of that bonus check. I am hoping to convince DH to get me the embroidery machine I want with our tax refund......we'll see. Timing is everything. Guess I had better start waiting on him hand and foot, huh? hehe

    I just wanted a little treat for myself, the rest is going into the old boring saving for retirement.

    I'm still working on the faceted jewels quilt. I have ONE more block to sew the strips of squares together on and ONE side of the outer row to do. Almost done.
