    I got to go to two of my favorite shops yesterday. Here are my fabrics I bought. Then the kid's fabrics I got at Hobby Lobby earlier this week. I am going to make some little girl purses from the kid's fabrics and then the cats and dogs are probably going to be checkbook covers or eyeglass cases or something.
    These are for my online store.

    The rest is just my stash builders for what I do all the time.

    Are those all yardages? That's a good amount of fabric to make into things. The princess print is sure cute.

    Thanks Susan and Sharon! I did have fun. Killed a $100 easily! LOL More than I was going to spend but you all know how that goes!! :) :)

    K I am thinking I may try the OBW for the dogs and cats for checkbook covers. I may use the minis or not. I would love to play with this technique but you know I would never get a whole quilt done. Don't have the time for anything that big anyway. But this way I can have some fun with the OBWs!!

    As I do miniatures I am hard pressed to find good tiny print fabrics in the colors I like. I prefer navy or dk blues dk burgandies and hunter greens. The one green was on sale for $6.70 in a shop where everything is usually $9 a yd. So I was pleased. I was especially pleased to find the navy one.They are few and far between for tiny print and a true navy. The burgandies I was refilling some of my favorite ones that I was out of. So it was a good satisfying day.

    LOL I went in to the first shop and was in there awhile.Glen waited patiently in the van. When I came out I had a small sack and he says "Didn't find what you wanted?" LOL He didn't think I bought enough! that doesn't happen too often!

    Those are great Rhonda. I'm anxious to see what you do with them. You know who will want a little pink purse, so you'll have to do that for Rachel. Does she have a B'day soon? I like the dogs/cats, too. Can't have too much fabrics & stash. Glad you got to shop.
