    Here is what I bought in fabrics. This is not counting the quilting hoop, the two books and the many spools of thread and a few needles. All totaled I spent about 300 dollars. Most of the cost came from the fabrics and the quilting hoop.

    Great job Henry, I've used a couple of those fabrics. The planet one went into a quilt I made for my dad and gave to him 2 weeks ago.

    What kind of frame did you get? I like the PVC ones for handwork.

    Did the hoop come with a complimentary box of bandaids for when you poke yourself with the needle? :) Or should I raid the hospital's shelves and mail you some? hahahahhaaa..... Hand quilting is very relaxing and busy hands keep the devil away.... or something like that.

    Henry's at it again! :mrgreen: We love when you shop because we get to enjoy all this a few times. Seeing the stuff just bought, "hearing" others plot to relieve you of your treasures, and when we get to see maybe the steps along the way to the completed works of art! :D :D

    Oh Henry very nice I love the space fabric. Can't wait to see what you will make with all the fabric. Good luck on the hand quilting. I don't have the patients for it. Well, I do but everyone else in the family well, you know even though they can take care of themselves I have to take care of them. :evil: lol
