Shopped til I Dropped

Hello hello from sunny northern California - where it is 68 beautiful degrees and a beautiful blue sky - for those of you in the snowy regions, come visit!!!!
This little quilt got claimed by George, who thinks a quilt on a blanket, on a leather couch, might just nearly be soft enough for his creature comfort!
This morning I went on my shopping spree!!! It was great fun... there was a sale at Eddie's Quilting Bee - it was Eddie's birthday, and everything was 30% off!
I had a great time - found some beautiful fabrics, some neat notions - and met some great quilters - we all examined everyone else's purchases and envied every single piece of fabric... I also got some of that great mesh to make some bags... now need to find a good pattern!
Here's my booty!

I'm looking forward to processing the fabric... I know some people don't wash, but I do - every single piece - washed, ironed, and folded. It may sound like a lot of work to those who don't like to prewash, I really enjoy it... and love to see it on my shelf afterward!
Merry Christmas to everyone... thank you, DH... I love you for thinking of such a thoughtful and fun gift for me.
Happy Quilting,

Sounds like you had fun shopping. But you must need more hours in the day to get your sewing in.
I would love to win the applicaque
book as I am new to applicaquing on quilt blocks and would love to learn how.
