    Terri......you have had a ball....oh to be able to find all those fantastic fabrics.....lovely the sealife, birds and kitty quotes...crikey....I love them all, I actually think I have some of the japanese fabric - (Bought from one of the ladies in the group who buys through internet)...saving that for something really special!!

    You have great taste Terri...not one piece didn't I LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do you have excess charges on the military flights????????????lol!!
    Thanks all!

    Yes, Izy, I had a blast buying that fabric. Who knows...you might have some scraps of that coming your way in a future box....that is IF I cut that stuff. lol

    Oh, no excess charge. I'm allowed 2 suitcases at 70 pounds each. My one suitcase was 68 pounds. You should have heard the man when he took it off the bus. He was groaning....asked me what I had in it. Told him it was all fabric. lol
    He asked me where my clothes were. I told him...in my carry on! :)

    No Penny...I didn't get to the swap meet. Nothing there I really want. Plus, was a bit too hot, always is and didn't feel like walking around it.
    They do have some nice fabric, but I preferred buying my fabric (Hawaiian) from Fabric Mart.

    I bet you could! I went looking for the Hawaiian stuff like what I sent you, but all they had was black and brown colors. Didn't want that.
    Oh well...maybe next time.

    Wish I could suggest something, it took me 2 weeks to decide what I wanted. How about looking through some of those Fons & Porter Mags, got great ideas in them, OR how about a HawaiiŽn centre, just an itsy bitsy one.

    By the way, when you were in LA LA LAND shopping for wonderful fabrics a lot of us decided to make 2 Totes, Great for Chrissy presents which wonŽt go to go to waste.

    I'm only making one tote. Have some other things I NEED to get done...one being to finish off that wedding gift quilt. UGH!

    I think I do have some panel fabric that I could border and that could be my center. It's a bit of cheating, but at least the fabric will get used, right?

    I thought the hot air balloon fabric and coordinating fabrics were my favorite until I got to the cat phrases - which made me laugh out loud. What a haul you made! I'm sure Hawaii thanks you.
