    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.

    ummmmmmm the only problem I can see is that you need to take another trip to the quilt shop for some more fabrics. And If you got a yard of each then you really have a problem and need to go back to satisfy it with more fabric purchased. :-)
    BTW do they have an online store? If the fabrics are really cheap I want to get me some. especially the batiks.

    $35 is probably the least amount I've ever spent for fabric at one time.

    You know its hard to stop the building process once it gets started. Ask me how I know ... 40 years of building ... not sure how high or big this is going to get !

    I can't ever recall ever leaving a QS without spending.....well lets say a lot more than $35 and felt like I'd done good. If I had only spent that amount my husband would probably take me to the doctor or he'd have a heart attack ;)
