    Well I came I saw and I bought hehehehe.

    The ladies a Quiltmakers cottage in Hershey were so NICE!
    They even extended the sale starting today on Saturday since i would not be in town.

    I ended up getting fabric for a Christmas quilt. I did mess up a little. I had my quilt planned for 4 colors and in my foggy brain I only picked out 3 colors but I did not adjust the amount I needed for 3 versus 4.
    So I am short 1 1/4 yard. I will have to pick one up some other time.
    I had so much fun playing with all the fabrics it was a really nice treat.

    Hubby could not take me in the morning. He had to work unexpectedly. He was so nice and paid for a cab to take me.
    Although I would have rather spent 10$ on fabric lolol.
    I am thankful I got to go. He was able to pick me up during his lunch break so I didn't need to spend more money on a cab.


    I didnt not get a chocolate facial.
    It was funny on the way there we saw a billboard that said Chocolate facials Hershey's got them! and it had a picture of a women with a chocolate facial done at a spa and it has a pic of a kid eating a chocolate bar and had it all over his face. lololol
    I thought of you all when I saw that. Wondering what kind would my friends be getting. The spa or chocolate bar lolol


    Thanks everyone! I have not gotten around to taking pictures but I will try and post some in the picture section

    My LQS just had all their yardage fabric (Moda) for $2.00/yd. off :) I did get some fabric I've had my eye on but hated to spend $10/yd. I don't normally spend more than $30 at a time at my LQS. If I had more I'd spend more...LOL

    Glad you had a great time.

    I spent last weekend helping a friend (who once had a QS) with a garage sale. She dealt with Jinny Beyer fabric so she has a garage full. So she was selling it at $3.50/yard.

    Will help her again in the future when she is able to have another sale. No chocolate facials I'm afraid.... : = )

    For some reason my camera just will not pic up the true colors of the fabric I got.

    So I decided to scan it lol
    Here they are my three colors.
    They are so pretty and silky smooth.
    I got 1 1/4 yard of each (forgot I was suppose to get 1 more color so I am 1 1/4 yard short)

    Beautiful fabric's. Isn't nice to splurge sometime, even tho we can get fabric cheaper somewhere else? I love the few times I can pick something up at a LQS even tho there are other places cheaper to buy. Just gives you a good feeling! You go girlfriend! :lol:
