Stash Report - Week 51

The week flew by.  I got a little more sewing in, we are done decorating, and I let my fingers do the walking and ordered presents 'on line'.  Next year I should do my on line shopping earlier in the month as some of the things I wanted were "Sold Out".  I searched and found other gifts that will work also.

We were going to get groceries and my DH said lets stop at that big warehouse sale you've never been to.  What!!!   Now how many of you go fabric shopping with your hubbies? How many DH even suggest something like that???   Mine is very good about letting me check out quilt/fabric shops when we are traveling.  I always need to look . . .     He took me to the private sale at the Kona Bay Cotton warehouse.   The first two days the quilt guild I belong to are welcomed then that it is open to the rest of the public.  We went on the second day, I had not planned to do this.  Fabric is priced $10 per pound and about 3 1/2  to 4 yards are a pound.  So, in we went - yes, hubby came in with me "to help" he said.  As I went thru and sorted out fabrics I liked, and put fabrics back I noticed that hubby was adding to my stack with the fabric that had Koi fish and dragonflies.  I decided that was time to stop, pay and leave.  After all, we still had to buy groceries.
