BLOGGER TEMPLATES AND TWITTER BACKGROUNDS

Thursday, March 19, 2009

Yesterday I told you that I felt the "Call of Duty." The call is what you hear when your country needs you. Our country is having some economic issues. I felt that as an American I should goeth outeth there and stimulate it a little bit...the economy that is not this bit of juicy-ness right chere'...sigh Robert Oh Robert you had me at "Say it! Say what I am" and then I giggled and looked into your golden brown eyes and said "Vampire!!" Ahem...sorry about that...hubby is gone again. Now where was I?? Oh yeah, I stimulated the economy. I stimulated that economy so good it needed a cigarette.

Here is the haul...I got a few of these little luscious things. Goodness gracious!! Purple!!
Then I got a bit of this....










A big ole' pack of fab-u-lous fat quarters and some buttons for my BOM. Look at them...yummmmmmmmmmmmmmm











See! I had to get them right????? No matter that my husband thinks I have a problem with fabric. It neeeeeeded me and I oh so neeeeeeded it back.








Oh. My. Goodness. Look at these. They grabbed me by the hand when I was walking by and said "howyoudoin!!" I saw the pattern that went with all that wonderful-ness and couldn't resist.











Houses! I have such a weakness for houses.
All of my fabric is now put away. I lovingly took it out of the bags (sigh, yes bags - plural) and then hugged it to me. I whispered "welcome home my precccccccious." Then I put them all away in designated shelves. Please Lord help me. The hubby will be home soon and he knows my I spent enough to keep a small country in rice for the next millennium face. He knows Int-net!! He knowssssssssssss. To make up for my shameful behavior I shall fill him up with tasty things when he walks in the door. Wanna see what I made him?? Here is some cake. This is stage one. What do you think I'm making???? Hmmmmm?? Stay tuned!! :)

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm Cake!

That's an impressive haul! As one American to another, thank you for your sacrifice. You made a difference yesterday. You are my hero. Statues will be raised in your honor. Parades full of people holding onto giant balloons in your image will replace the Macy's Thanksgiving parade. No more Snoopy. Just Dawn. Just imagine!

I wish we had video of your shopping trip. Sounds like fun!
