Well . . . . you know how it goes . . . . even though you have the very best intentions, it is just so hard to resist many of the beautiful fabric collections, especially when shops like The Quilted Garden have a way of displaying them that make them so appealing!
As I was at the cutting table with the batiks I needed for my project, I was visiting with Marggy about quilty things and as she started cutting, I noticed a very pretty, cheery group of fabrics by Riley Blake.
Of course, I couldn't leave without getting some coordinating charm packs of this fabric line, too!
I left the shop with not only the batik fabric I needed for my project but also a new quilt pattern and enough of the above fabric to make the quilt, which I'm happy to say that I've already started to cut and sew.
The moral of this story is that no matter how much I tell myself that I should only get what I need, there will always be something out there that I know I can't live without.
This little cartoon pretty much sums up me in a quilt shop
And when my husband is with me, I know he is probably thinking this very same thing . . . but never says it out loud. If he did, however, I'm sure my response would be the same as the lady's in the cartoon : )
Until next time . . .
