A little shopping...

I wasn't able to do any sewing today, but I did get to shop and that's not too shabby.

I'm working on the Cartwheel pattern from Lee at Freshly Pieced. Here is a picture of the 4 blocks I have so far:

While prepping for my upcoming retreat, I realized that I didn't have very much yardage left of my background fabric.  Why can't I plan better?  Never fear! I bought that fabric (Kona neon-ish green) at Hobby Lobby and one beautiful thing about Hobby Lobby - they keep the same stock for a loooooong time!  I stopped there today to get more (3 yards-- I will NOT run out!) and also got a bit of a fun grey and a turquoise print.

After that, I went to Stitcher's Crossing to get a few things.  I ended up with many things!

-A new spool of thread- quilt retreat is coming up and I can't dare run out of that!
-1/2 yard more of the grey Art Gallery blender I'm using in my Catvent. I want to make an 'Up Up and Away' Mini with the bonus triangles from the cat's ears and I'm not sure if I have enough background purchased.

-The wackiest Alexander Henry Print I've ever seen!

-3 books (I will talk more of them later...It's a surprise!)
-Foundation paper (see cartwheel + retreat above)

So Exciting! If only I had the energy to get crafty tonight.  It will have to wait until tomorrow or Saturday.


  1. I LOVE that Alexander Henry print. I would get some, but I have no idea how the ghastliest would fit in my projects. Someday they will!

  2. love, Love, LOVE the ghastlies....can't wait to see what you do with them!
