Birthday loot

My new BFF!
One of the things we did for my birthday was make a trip to Rehoboth Beach. Along the way I wanted to visit the quilt shop in Lewis DE called Mare's Bears. (maresbearsquiltshop.com/) 
Whee! What fun this shop is! Cole was welcomed in by MaryAnn's sweetie, the two quickly becoming friends, and Cole was shown around the shop. They both rested together happily until the UPS delivery when they made a mutual decision to allow him in.
Momma needed fabric!!
As the countess would say...
I wanted to buy the place out but showed great restraint, AND all this was on sale! Woohoo!
I thought I might make some pillowcases with the Zzzzz's fabric, and well, the shoes HAD to come home with me. The little roll of low contrast is perfect since who ever buys enough faint pastel fabrics like this, not me as I go for the crazy color and patterns. Like....

OMGosh, Don't know how I'll use this, maybe in my retro quilt if that ever gets started. I didn't care, it had to jump in my bag and at $5 a yard, I should have bought more!
We went on to the beach but I want to do that in another post... as I found the cutest antique scotty dog that I am converting into a pin cushion... you know how I am.

  8. Happy Birthday to you both! Looks like a great birthday trip. I am knee, well, hip deep in Bath Redo so I am not going anywhere!

    My magnet was used for it's first official job today, telling us that the dishes in the dishwasher are CLEAN! Its unofficial job is to proclaim I am always right!

  9. What cute fabrics! I wish I was better at sewing. Alas I'm not all that great at it, but I try, lol. I used to sew cloth diapers for my kids when they were babies. :-)
