My boyfriend was up a few days ago---been a rough week for the family so he came up for support and stayed a couple days. He took me to the same quilt shop he took me to on my birthday one of those days.

I usually don't buy fabric unless I have a specific plan for it. This time I left with 11 different fabrics...only 3 of them were for a specific project. I only have vague ideas for the other fabrics:
*Two green for when I decide its right to make a quilt for my boyfriend (he really likes green. Have no design in mind right now)
*Two purples for that cathedral quilt I have in my head (purple diamonds on a black background)
*A watercolor pink with a little bit of batik in it (I think I was thinking that one baby quilt I designed one time when I bought it.)
*Three blues because I want to make "something in blue" (didn't have an idea at the time, but right now Japan has inspired me to make my Tsunami design in different blues---kind of a varigated effect)

I spent like $35---that's the most I've spent at any fabric place at one time.

I think its official: I'm stash building.

Be thankful you got out for only $35. I think my LQS charges that much just to look around.
