    I went to hobby Lobby yesterday and found some great buys. I fell in love with the poinsetta fabric and the diamond shaped Christmas fabric. All the cut fabric I paid $2 a yard. I plan to go back and get more of the poinsetta fabric Monday! Its just so beautiful! (I already finished the bolt on the diamond one - After I got my 2 yards she gave me the last 1/2 yard for .50 cents)

    here is the buyers remorse. The bottom 2 fabrics are northcut and I paid $7-8 a piece for them. They are roughly a yard each. I could have bought the whole bolt of the poinsetta fabric for that. I might return them. I'm trying to make a stash.

    I love the snowman panel! It's is awesome- do they have more? Do they ship?

    Buyers remorse- have no remorse- fabric in the lqs is almost $10 a yard! That is still a bargain!

    Beautiful fabric. Don't regret the purchase. I'm sure you will use it and it was certainly worth the money. Enjoy.

    Littlehud, They had alot of the panel fabric left. It's a local Hobby Lobby so I don't know if they ship it out. And I did fall in love with the pink fabric with the tea cups and tea pots on it. My husband told me I needed to build my stash and threw the blue in the cart. So its all water under the bridge, haha.
    Thanks

    Return fabric? Is that legal? :shock: LOL! Enjoy your bargains and make something special with the high dollar stuff. When you average it all out, you did very well!
