More Fabric! Tsk! Tsk!

Yesterday,  Sherry took me to Bay City to Fabric Fair to leave my dear old Bernina there for a cleaning and spruceup.  They are the closest Bernina dealer and other dealers can't do any repairs if needed.  While there, of course, I had to check out the fabric and here are some 1/4 yard cuts of some prints that literally yelled out to me to bring them to live at my house.  Most are Aunt Grace fabrics that occupy a big soft spot in my heart.
Here are some wrinkly, crinkly muslins that I thought might be nice for embroidery.  Would love to do a sort of primitive stitching on the dark pieces.  No particular plans, but thinking about it.  Looks like I am going to have to live at least into my early 100's to use up my fabric - that is, if I don't keep buying more!  The manufacturers just keep making it more wonderful all the time and it's hard to resist.  I can justify it by the fact that I don't buy much in the way of clothes anymore - and with fabric, it always fits!

While we were in Bay City, we went to Red Lobster and had a really great lunch!  A nice time out with my very, very nice daughter!!  

Hope wherever you are,  you have the same pretty blue skies above that we do!!

Lunch at Red Lobster and new fabric - now that's what I call a perfect day out! Love the Aunt Grace pieces. However I'm afraid we are all going to have to live well into our hundreds to use up our stashes - LOL! If they just didn't keep making such lovely fabrics, I would be fine. I just can't resist. Have a wonderful weekend!

I so love your new fabric Carol and a Primitive stitchery would look wonderful on the dark crinkly muslin.
