I Drank the Kool-Aid...

I truly have the best husband on the planet...I know everyone says that, but I believe it!  Mother's Day is always a bit of a tough holiday for me.  I love my mom, but don't get to see her very often and I always feel a bit of a void.  This year, my husband knows I have been wanting some new fabric, so he got me a $100 gift certificate for fabric.com!!  He has been taking the best care of me since my foot surgery.  I have 2 weeks left of getting around on crutches, THANK GOD!!!  I am dying on these stupid things!  At the end of the day, I drop into my recliner and just fall asleep.  He has been doing laundry, dishes, vacuuming, etc. He has been awesome!!

So for my fabric!!!  I got my notification from fabric.com today that my fabric is on its way and I am so excited.  I ordered the Aviary 2 collection from Joel Dewberry, in addition to some other fun prints from Jennifer Paganelli.  As if that wasn't enough for Mother's Day, my husband took me to Joann's last night...the first time I have been out shopping in over a month....and I was able to buy a ton of the new Denyse Schmidt fabric Picnic and Fairgrounds!!  I got 13 of the 22 prints, but I couldn't be happier with the ones I got!  I love her fabric lines and wish with the rest of blogland that Flea Market Fancy would get reprinted  *sigh*  I only lasted about 45 minutes in the store before collapsing at the pattern tables needing to rest before paying for my goodies.  Today, I am wiped out!

ALSO, I cut out a baby sized Single Girl Quilt for my niece Julia....cannot wait to get that started!!  Maybe tonight, after my nap :o)


  1. Can't wait to see what you make with all that fabric! Oh, by the way, your husband sounds amazing!

  2. He is amazing, Shanna!! You are in good hands... I've always known it! :)
    Yay for your new fabric! You are so talented and always continue to amaze me with all the wonderful things you create! Looking forward to Julia's special quilt! :) She will love it!
