    Going to my JoAnn's and see if they have the bear/penguin fabric here. That is so cute. My grandson loves penguins. We've watched Happy Feet about 10 times (and that was in the week he was here last!) between watching Cars and The Wild. I just made him a blanket from fleece I got there that has Lightning McQueen on it for him to take to day care with him. I also buy those little fq bundles. They really coordinate nicely, don't they? Good job shopping. What are your plans for your new loot? Or are you like me and just got it cause it caught your fancy?

    I got it cause it caught my fancy so to speak. I desperately needed the thread. I wanted the buttons so I could do a cute as a button wall hanging. The mug made me think of quilting and it was only 1.00 so I got it.

    Pretty varied selections! Did you find any of the 30% off cottons? I swore I was not going to buy any more fabric til my job comes in, but the sales were good and I was able to use my 40% off coupons.

    Yes the space fabric was 30% off and the country hearts was 30% off. The polar bear penguin fabric was $2 a yard as was the pink striped with yellow and green.

    Ooh your fat quarter bundles are so pretty! I did some shopping at JoAnn today, too. In fact, I had so much fun, I almost went back to buy more stuff later. :oops:

    Henry thank you for sharing, I am trying to be good, because of heat bills, and this is as good ., almost as really shopping. What did you use your coupon for? I like the prints and I do need the thread. You have to watch for the half off clearance sale.......its a big deal here.......this is where the deals are......happy shopping :D :shock: :roll: :wink: 8) :)

    I have those buttons!! One pack the same as yours and one pack more subdued, almost pastel shades. I won't mention where I got them though, you kinda sorta don't like that store :wink: . Some pretty cool stuff you got there, I like the striped fabric...would make some really cute sundresses. I might have to have my sister make a stop at Joann's (there's still one close to her) and see if they have some there too.

    Ok, am I the only piglet here that has ever hidden stuff at Joann's underneath a BUNCH of other stuff so that on payday I could go back and dig it out? This is awful to even admit, but I did it. Hmmm... maybe I need fabric therapy :):)

    You are going to have to work two jobs Henry just for your fabric addiction...lol. I can say that because I am getting hooked too. I used to never even think about that section of any store, now it is the first thing in my mind to hit the fabric section.

    That is always how I justify spending money on something I don't spend...

    There is a concept in economics called the velocity of money. It measures how many times a unit of money circulates through the economy in a given amount of time. The better the economy the higher the velocity....

    That is the major thing I remember from my college economy class

    So when I got to Jo Ann's sale tomorrow I just tell my husband I'm helping with the money velocity? I like it. He'll never know what I'm up to then!!! Tee-hee!
