    Finally got my Hancock's catalog

    And I'm afraid to look all the way thru. I glanced at the first 10 or so pages and felt a hole burning in my checkbook.

    I think they must have finally given up on me. It's been a while since I've ordered from Hancock's but I sure did enjoy their catalog.

    Go to their website and and sign up for the catalog again. That's what I did and within 2 days I got the catalog.

    I got mine 3 days ago and have looked thru it every day!!! It is definately eye candy!!!

    I love looking through this catalog. I haven't received one yet, maybe because I haven't ordered from them recently. I'll wait a couple of days to see if I get one. If not, I'll request one. Thanks for the suggestion, auntpiggylpn.

    I requested one quite a while ago and am still waiting. Got tired of waiting so checked out the online version, but it isnt the same as the paper version.

    Oh yes I just got mine the other day and it was like Christmas for me. I saw several things I think I can't live without. I was especially excited to see that Laurel Burch cat fabric was coming out again! So much fabric, so little time.

    Another thing I noticed is that some prices finally seem to be creeping down just a tad. Seems to me most fabrics (except batiks) were just under $10 per yard and it wasn't so long ago that I was seeing $11 so maybe out of control cotton prices are finally under control. Either that or the manufacturers realized we'd quit buying fabric when it was priced at $11, $12 and up.

    My DGD use to cut the fabric squares from the magazine and glue to paper to make her quilts. She then would present it to me and say sew this one Mamaw! Every time I see a Hancock magazine I smile thinking of the fun times she had making special quilts on paper.
    Got fabric?

    I love looking through mine. I wait until everyone else in the house has gone to bed and snuggle up in a chair with a blanket to slowly admire each page & dream about the projects I could make with all those gorgeous fabrics! It's some of my favorite 'me time'.

    A quick page by page look last night before bed.....didn't give me any quilty dreams, though, .....showed me that there seems to be a return to more good yellows finally; been missing those in the past 2-4 years.

    I keep the Hancock catalog all season for referring back to as I go along. Sometimes just the patterns give me ideas; then I can choose other colors by looking through their pages. But I pull mostly from my stash.

    Still Hancocks is my favorite go-to place for so many things!

    There are several fabrics in the chinoiserie section (p.70) that are verrrrrrry tempting. I'm not a fan of pink, until someone combines it with lime green. ohhhhhhhhhhhh the "pink prosperity" sample. And the pink peacock garden and the mirabelle bouquet in green. For easy, I'm thinking Warm Wishes but I'd have to go elsewhere for the 3 rail piece.

    Also several light house pieces. Another weakness of mine.

    And butterflies.

    and..............

    Their catalog is wonderful, but the prices are up again. Such is life. I think that have the best selection around.

    I got mine and started turning the cormers of the pages that had "just got to have" fabrics... And then realized I was turning almost every page. Maybe I should turn the pages that do not have fabrics I am interested. When their catalog arrives it takes every ounce of self retraint not to stop everything and pour through every page.

    I was given one at the store this past May. How often do the new catalogs come out? Haven't been able to order due to some unexpected expenses. You know- furnace, dryer, plumbing and vehicle repairs. All at the same time!

    I believe the catalogs come out seasonally, 3-4 times a year.
