shopping....worlds worst shopper!

so it's official....i am the worst shopper ever!
i hate grocery shopping....apparently i buy more cleaning products than food.
i hate clothes shopping - all too hard.
i love craft shopping but never get what i actually need.

yesterday, i followed in nerida's footsteps & got myself over to peppermint stitches....and left with nothing i went for & spent $100 on stuff for other projects...wtf?? remember my last post...a nice simple play/end of bed quilt to sew for a princess turning 1? well, i now have a really cute patchwork top of a quilt (urban chiks for moda fabric) that i sewed yesterday evening. i need to add a few blocks to the outside, put batting & back on, sew the binding....she may be 2 by the time she gets it!


and i fell in love with this layer cake of fabric to make my couch throws. these are gorgeous precut 10 inch squares of co-ordinating moda fabrics....i couldn't leave them there. i am tossing up whether to do a bed throw or lounge throw. it will tell me when it's done....that is my project for the next 6 weeks while i rest up post surgery.

with names like layer cakes & jelly rolls, how am i to resist....and the co-ordinating fabrics & precut squares takes the hard work out of it! i am such a fan now. and i saw the new amy butler range instore & i already have plans....in a 50percent sorta way of course!
i am still trying to justify to my husband the need for more fabric...men don't get it do they? he is at the nod & smile stage, so i may be lucky....
