I shopped...

and shopped...
and shopped...

and then I shopped some more...

I took a few days this past week and flew down to Arizona to visit my parents who have been snowbirds in Yuma for the past 3 years. Just as winter is starting to settle in around here it was nice to get away and enjoy the 80 degree weather. And as luck would have it, it was so nice in Alberta while I was gone that all our snow was nearly gone when I got back... :) I did a lot of relaxing and a little bit of touring around and a whole bunch of fabric shopping! About 25 yards to be exact....eeeks! Oh, but I have plans to use each and every bit of it....I do, I really do! :) See the top picture is some border fabric that I picked up to use with some of my Kansas Troubles charm squares and jelly rolls. The second pick, is a bunch of Williams Inn by Nancy Halvorsen to go with some of the line I already have in my stash for a king size quilt for myself. The third pick is some Moda border fabric for those pesky shangri-la charms and jelly rolls I have hanging around. And the last picture was such a nice find...I was extremely late to jump on the bandwaggan for Moda's Simplicity line and only having one piece in my stash I was so lucky to find these pinks and greens which I have planned to make the most darling quilt for my dearest friends daughter, who happens to LOVE pink!!! See, it all has a purpose and I was completely justified in purchasing every last yard of it! And to top it all off, it was 25% off!!! Going through Canadian Customs was kinda funny though....Ma'm what kind of goods are you bringing back with you? Ahh, just shoes and fabric! Yup, that's all! Oh ya, I caught a massive shoe sale and ended up squeezing 5 pairs in my luggage. Now justifying the shoes is another story all together...
