    Wow! Those are pretty fabrics. You will be sewing for a long time, so I can understand that you won't be shopping for a long time. Have fun.

    Wow! What a shopping trip and DH went with you too!! Mine would go with me, but I don't think that I'd buy all I want with him around. You'll have fun making some beautiful quilts with your gorgeous fabrics, nice job!

    You sure do have some great stuff there. I have a shop hop to go on this Friday. I don't want to buy to much.

    I have the Atkinson's "Happy Hour" pattern that you show in pic #5, but have not made it yet. I'll be interested in seeing the quilt you make using this pattern. Great shopping spree, BTW!

    Did you leave ANYTHING for anyone else to buy? I love your new stash. The books/magazines made me drool.. pick me pick me they said... if you ever get 'bored' of them surely they would love to sit on my coffee table. I bet you had a blast shopping. I think fabric stores.. are like non fattening candy stores for quilters. Just one piece of this one.. a small bit of that one.. look my hips did not get larger and I even had ONE more I had to have..

    That cover pick is what caught me! I am trying to copy the colors the bast I can for my first one. It looks easy ;-) I really liked all the patterns in that book. Hope to see yours soon also.

    Gorgeous, I love all the florals. I have never taken my Hubby fabric shopping with me. I buy lots more when he isn't around. Your Hubby is very good at picking things out for you to buy. You both sure did a good job with the shop hop. I love Thimbleberries patterns and have several of her books.
