Who needs diamonds?

I think I took the "no baby" news well... don't you? Haha. I went on a little binge yesterday after work. I thought I'd stop by JoAnn's on the way home because I needed about 1/2 yard more of the camo skull fabric for some swaps. But, you'll never guess who I saw while browsing the isles...

I was so happy to see two of the beautiful prints that I have been coveting from your blogs for so long sitting happily on the shelves. I am pretty sure they were excited to see me, too. They had their arms open, and I had a 50% off coupon, so it was fate. Yahoo!


They are so beautiful that I don't even want to cut them up. The hearts will be such cute, and yet nontraditional, Valentines Day pillows. I bought a few yards, so I'll probably make a Valentines Day purse for myself, too. And maybe some headbands for my sisters and nieces, and... and....

On the sale table I found this weird cotton (polyester??) lacy stuff for only $1/yd. It is machine washable and everything, so I think I'll make a simple A-line skirt out of it. It will look so cute over a dark brown satin. So cute I can hardly stand it!


Then, this red and white stuff was looking rather appealing on the shelf too. So, I grabbed a couple yards of that, too. And the gray and charcoal corduroy was 70% off so I jumped on that. It is a great combo and I would like to make some pieced pillows or something. But they don't really match anything I have, so I'll be scouting out my friends decor. Do any of you have any need for something red and gray?


And then, I just bought this weird green stuff. The stripes are actually green and navy, not green and yellow. When cut into strips (I made a headband last night) it resembles those horrible square ties from 1982.


Ahhhhhhhhhhh. I haven't fabric binged in a long time and boy did it feel good. To keep with my resolution to not just buy fabric because it is a 'good deal' I had a project in mind for all of these before I got to the checkout counter... except the weird stripey green. However, I justified all 2 yards of it by making at dinky little headband when I got home. Haha. I win. Fabric really is my best friend when I need it to be.
