I'm so excited!

I'm so excited.  I know I shouldn't be excited about something so silly, but I just can't help it.  And I know that all you fabric addicts, er, I mean lovers, will understand.

I went to the store for batting for the Little Forest Quilt Along.  Hubby went with me.  Oh Big Mistake.
First he wanted to get wool batting. Not happening.  I'm sticking to my usual batting that I know will work.  As I was having the batting cut, he brought up this fabric.  Squeal!  Isn't it cute?  See? He makes me spend money.  And on Fabric!!

It was his idea to make pillowcases for the trailer.  Oh...good idea. And yes, this fabric would be cool with the different states.  It even has my state California. And we do need another set of pillowcases. 

I don't know why buying that one piece of fabric set me off - but it did!  I went back and bought what I really wanted to buy.

Aren't they wonderful?  I have wanted some Halloween fabric for so long.  I'm going to make pillowcases for the family (well, most of the family.)  No wait!  Hubby is going to make pillowcases. He got me started and I'll let him finish it.

This is for him. 

This is for me.  The guys at work were shocked that I like spiders.  I think it is so cute.

The rest of the fabric will be for the grand kids and the trim and bands of the pillowcases.

Now if he's sewing pillowcases while I'm at work  - I should be able to quilt my Little Forest Quilt in the evening.  This might just work out fine.



  1. I really love that Halloween assortment! I made each of my daughters little candy sacks last year (I even made Veronica one even though I was only pregnant with her--I wanted to have 3 that matched!) and one of the kids got one with the same cat fabric. I love cats, purple, and Halloween, so how could I pass that print up? Have fun making those pillows!

  2. Ewww!! Spiders? I do like the travel fabric, but I'll have to pass on the spiders. It's so fun that dh is into sewing with you!!!!

  3. I don't like real spiders, but those little fabric ones are pretty cute! Love all of your fabrics, and the ones for the trailer will be so perfect! :) I like how your husband is encouraging you to buy fabrics now! :)

  4. I adore that state fabric - so cute and retro!
    The halloween ones are fun but I have to agree spiders are icky!!

  5. A good plan - getting hubby to sew his own projects so you can do your own! Fun fabrics!
