it's a sickness...

seriously...i can't stay away from fabric..buying fabric i mean. here in mesa, the humanitarian center for our church (LDS) is moving so they are selling all their fabric...they told me about this at church and i just had to go and see! they have TONS of fabric...and quilt tops and backs but i wasn't going to venture there:)i got lots of gingham (lots of purple in this box...it was sold by the box and then i added some things in:) so if you like purple call me:)

the helicopters and the dotty one next to it are flannel...lots of flannel, like 2 yards each i think
so many checks so little time! and look at that bandanna print! so awesome!
and these...how could i leave them there? vintage snoopy and mickey? come on!

i am so happy...and how much did it all cost? $10. ten bucks!!!!!!! the flannel alone would have been $10 or more full price! yikes!

i did have a purpose in buying this though...some of this fabric is going to make pillowcases for craft hope.

for kids with cancer...join in if you want! they have to be done by sept. 15 so i need to get cracking!

I have a sickness like this also with various items at various times. It's a bit hard to control, but it's something to do with creative expression. Or maybe a minor case of hoarding?
