Stash additions

Yeah, I did it.  I bought a few things while we were at QuiltCon.  Actually, I didn't spend as much as I'd planned.  Once we were there I discovered that my card wasn't working.  "Denied" is not a pretty word, let me tell you!  It turns out that the card company suspected fraud, and they were right.  So there was no buying on the sly or on the up-and-up. 

Really, choose now to steal my info, buy stuff in the thousands, and get my card blocked?  Now?  Really?  Right when I need it?

Thank goodness, Richard felt sorry for me and came to my rescue.  He's such a good guy.  I'd have been fine without all the laughing, but that put him in a good mood, so okay.... 

Go with whatever God gives you, right?  Turns out that God gave me  hubby in a good mood who happened to be feeling sorry for my bad luck.  Thank you!

So while Rich paid for all the goodies, I attempted to restrain myself.  Not having the cash in my hand sure helped with the self-restraint.

In the end, I got a few pieces of fabric from this darling little line.  Gosh, I wish I could remember the name of it.  I like it so much that I bought an extra yard of the main piece.  I love "word" fabric. 
Edited: It's "Noteworthy" by Moda.....thanks Carla for letting me know.

Since I saw tons of quilts in solids, I bought some yardage of these pretty, very neutral solids.

And I needed a few cones of thread, so I stopped by the YLI booth.  I bought four cones in neutrals.  I really want to try these out before buying more.


While I sat in on a workshop, Rich went looking for something to drink and came back with a fat quarter of this cute bird fabric.  He signed up to win a door prize at one of the booths, and I won.  Gotta love that, right?

Hmm, I see that I'll need to remember that it's a one-way design.  My poor birds are flying upside-down!

And finally, a stop by Moda and Robert Kaufman rendered these cute little charm packets.
I don't know what I'll do with them, yet, but I'm thinking something really cool will come of them. 

What have you added to your stash lately?

Happy Quilting,

I believe it's Noteworthy. I made an impulse purchase from that line too ; )

Yes, Carla, you're right. As soon as I read your comment, I remembered, but I looked it up just in case. Thanks!
