I agree, I LOVE the way they package their fabric...so very fun and exciting to see a fat quarter shop package in my mailbox! The glace charm pack looks so pretty, don't forget to show and tell once your project is completed! :)

I need some therapy like that! I can't wait to see the new fabrics being released at the market this weekend. I really love your purchases, especially those from the Fat Quarter Shop. I'm off to my therapist now.

I was wishing I was at market too. I just had to play the "la la la i'm not listening" game.

Becky said...

I may just understand what you are talking about! ;)

I'm in the process of purging my stash! It's hard but it MUST be done. I'll feel better after my excess has gone to a local quilters group. The I may have to go for a therapy session......

Thimbleanna said...

Well. What. The. Heck. All this time I've been thinking you were in So. Cal. I'm losing it. You're SO close to me LOL. Love all your fun new fabrics!

jaybird said...

I bought the patisserie charm pack too.. now i've got a jelly roll of fig & plum, a jelly roll of dandelion girl and a ton of fig yardage from different collections... i have no plan yet but that hasn't stopped me from adding to the collection!

Maria said...

I did the same thing! Only I hit Hancocks of Paducah too!!!

Cristin said...

I'm with you sister! My fav little shop in Columbus bragged about going to Quilt Market last week, while I sat here sad and depressed. Today I'm self-medicating with a fabric shop run on my lunch break - oh yeah!

Kim said...

I've been doing a LOT of fabric retail therapy lately and I enjoy it sooo much. I'm just not sure I could ever give it up.

I suppose this dates me. I saw this movie in the Theatre when I became engaged to my husband. The movie is FIDDLER ON THE ROOF!
The quote is actually the song, Do You Love Me?

Tevye: [in song] Do you love me?
Golde: [speaking] I'm your wife!
Tevye: [speaking] I know!
[in song]
Tevye: But do you love me?
Golde: [singing] Do I love him? For twenty-five years I've lived with him, fought with him, starved with him. Twenty-five years, my bed is his...
Tevye: Shh!
Golde: [singing] If that's not love, what is?
Tevye: [singing] Then you love me!
Golde: I suppose I do!
Tevye: Oh.
[sings]
Tevye: And I suppose I love you too.
Tevye, Golde: [singing] It doesn't change a thing, but even so... After twenty-five years, it's nice to know.

The quilt is adorable...Hope to WIN!
Holly

fall quilt market in Houston in October... you game?

Beth said...

One of my favorite movies of all time is "Raising Arizona" - early Nicholas Cage and Holly Hunter. It is full of hilarious one-liners - you'd get annoyed listening to my husband and I go on. "HI - I need a baby - don't you come back without a baby - I NEED A BABY."
