Good Grief!

When I said boxes would be rolling in this week, that wasn't an exaggeration!

I think I'm done buying for a while. But I knew this would happen. All those wonderful things that were taunting me, and you, in "Coming Soon" have hit the shelves at the Fat Quarter Shop! Go check them out. I dare you!!!!! :)

Next week I'll get up another give-away. Need to offset at least some of it!

This weekend will be fun. I'm going to Newport Beach with my late boss' family to spend Saturday frolicking in the surf and sun. Well, let me rephrase that. I seldom frolic, so I'll have to be content with watching others doing the frolicking! I'm really looking forward to hearing waves and seeing water. I didn't realize how much I've missed it until I started thinking about this weekend. I'll be the old lady in long sleeves and a hat sitting under a beach umbrella!

And then next week will be meetingsmeetingsmeetings, and the week after that, too. Sheesh, I get tired just thinking about it. I'm going to take reading material with me to the beach to cram and prepare. Or maybe I'll just take my Kindle!

I'm feeling a lot better but still not over this crud. I've been early to bed and drinking lots of water and taking Claritin, antibiotics and cough syrup. Penny has been feeling neglected, so I guess tonight we'll cuddle for a bit before I head upstairs.

That's it. Just fair warning about my stash report on Sunday, and a give-away next week.

Ohhh!!! I can't wait to see what goodies you got! I ordered some white on white and some Bella solids this week. I also broke down and ordered myself a Kindle! I can't wait to get it, but Amazon is taking FOR-EVER to ship it!!! ARGH!!!

So what did you buy, don't keep me in suspense! I've had the crude too! I had a cold/cough that turned into bronchitis after 2 weeks, had to get meds. Now off the meds about 3 days and I feel like it's coming back again! I've had a heck of a time the last few months and I'm tired of it, because it's cramping my quilting style!

**giggle** I just love reading about your button pushing adventures! :-) And isn't it fun to get mail!? lol Have a happy weekend!

LOL! I know and truly understands what you mean....What I do...is I list what are the coming soons that I want and ensure the timeline they will be out...then I sort them out based on the months and see how much I would 'need' to spend every month on the new releases...and then start scoring them up to see if I really NEED them as much as the other in the same month release...so it would be much easier to manage my fabric spendings....:)

Can't wait to see what you've got! I've had boxes all month with another on the way...but wait it's only the 13th! More month to come and a few more buttons to come I think...loll.

i haven't bought any new fabric in so long--well, except for some dress lining which i've got to use soon. looking forward to seeing what's in your new boxes!
(huggs for you and for Penny too.)

I'm your twin at the beach, long sleeves, hat, 40 sunscreen! Enjoy your day of surf and sun. I opt for the Kindle, Work can have you Mon to Friday! Can't wait to see your new purchases.

Kim West said...

I can't wait to see what you got! When I buy a lot at a time, I look at it as "supporting the post office"....lol

Kathie said...
