Retail Therapy ... Again!

I'm not going to chatter on today - DS is home and I know he will want to use the computer when he gets out of bed. David is working down in a remote town where a gold mine is being developed, he is away from home and works long, hard hours, so it is a little treat for him to use the computer if he is home on Sunday.

Above - gorgeous retail therapy yesterday! Had a lovely day with the girls - went a bit crazy, but it will all stop soon - I need to sew to use up fabrics and patterns - all so tempting, though! Aren't the little Tootsie Rolls in the front just gorgeous - I have a plan in mind! The white with the tiny red dot will probably be used on my Hexagon Medallion - maybe the blue with little roses will get used on it, too - we'll see! I'm going to try to knit an edging for my True Friendship Quilt - the one Christine sent back to me - I'm not full of confidence about it, but I'll try!

Please pop over to Clare's Craftroom to see Clare's 50th Post Giveaway - I'm tickled pink about it!

Last but not least for today - I'm sorry, I am behind in replying to a lot of your lovely Comments - I so love to hear from you all and so appreciate your feedback and I promise I will try to keep up to date in the future!

♥ ... Hugs ... ♥

Nice shopping haul, Lurline!
Don't worry about not always replying. It's nice to hear from you, but I don't expect it every time I comment!

Visit your blog for the first time and I enjoy it very much. Great goodies you bought. Love the pear pincushion.

I enjoy seeing your purchases. I would love to "touch" all the fabric and thread you have pictured. My grandma was a seamstress in the 1950's and I enjoyed being around all her cloth, thread, etc. Just the smell of sewing machine oil reminds me of her. On Monday, I will be posting a picture of her - hope you can visit then. Can't wait to see all that you do with your lovely fabric! Enjoy DS being home.

Looks like a fun shopping trip! Beautiful fabrics, beautiful yarn and very nice knitting needles. I love my bamboo needles!

Can't wait to see what you do with all of this!

I know where you've been! one of my favourite places. All week I look forward to Saturday morning fabric and yarn therapy - it soothes the soul and I feel inspired, enthusiastic and blessed all the way home with my little bag of treasure. Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog.
