fabric goodies.

Like I previously mentioned, Sunday was all about the fabric retail therapy. Maybe it was because of the case of strep throat, or the fact I had to go back to work this week.  Either way, it was needed and appreciated.  
 
First, Sew, Mama, Sew! was having a sale last weekend, so I was drooling over the fabric online.  After seeing these Habitat by Jay McCarroll prints in this Oh, Fransson! quilt, I had to get my hands on some.  Pretty cool, yes?  I love the combo with the Kona solids--still need to get those.

Feeling confident about my online shopping, I checked out.  Then boyfriend suggested an impromptu trip to a LQS (he had no idea I was already fabric shopping online, hehe).  Umm, yes please!  How could a girl say no?!?
 
At the store, I decided to add to my Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner stash. These are some of my favorite fabrics right now.  I am thinking about using these for my month in the {Sew} Beautiful Bee.  String quilt perhaps?

Oh, and then I couldn't pass up these fabrics from the Aviary 2 fabric line by Joel Dewberry.  Yummy!

At this point in the shopping trip, I was feeling pretty good.  I had several great half yards of some yummy fabrics.  So I made my way to the front counter, paid, and was ready to go.  As we were about to walk out the door, the boyfriend mentions he would really like a quilt made out of "these cool fabrics."  He was talking about the gray and green prints from the new Ty Pennington line Impressions.  I couldn't tell him no, so we came home with these guys too.

Moral of the story--Fabric retail therapy ROCKS! :)
 
Oh, and I have the day off from work today (which reminds me, THANK YOU so much for all the kind words regarding my last post!) and you can bet I will be squeezing some sewing/quilting time into tonight's agenda.  Have a fabulous weekend all!
 
xo, Megan
