    The last few days at work have been tough. Not enough help and too much to do. When I got off work yesterday, I knew what to do. Visit the fabric store and touch material and pick up some that called to me. I feel better now. LOL

    Maybe al fall wall hanging

    I can't deside if I like the kitties or the pinks better. And I'm a blue girl too! 8)

    Makes me feel better just looking at it. Must really make you feel good to be able to touch it too!

    Your fabric therapy made me feel MUCH better. I had a yucky weekend, and that is such beautiful choices. I really like them all. I could use that plaid in my flying geese quilt...I had to pick some plaids I wasn't very fond of.

    I love pinks and my niece is having a little girl next year. Maybe I could use those for her baby quilt. Are you sending them my way???? :wink:

    You must be feeling a lot better now, because you got some great fabrics--I am partial to the fall ones. Yummy

    AAHHHH, even I feel better now for just looking at yours! I've spent sooo much lately on sewing stuff that my DH thinks I'll never stop (he's right, but I'm trying to slack off just a bit temporarily.. :mrgreen: )
