After last week I needed some serious feel-good shopping, so I went to Jo-Ann's to wander for an hour and a half, and ended up with a TON of fabric. I decided that what I needed to do is make a quilt. But not just any quilt. A chevron quilt. And so the cutting and then eventual recutting of the additional fabric I had to buy commenced.


It took for friggin' ever to get it all cut, but I am so loving the combo of patterns and colors, and can't wait to see how it turns out!! It may just end up being a Christmas gift for one of you... Maybe....


My other destination for splurging was Two Peas and I came away with some cute new My Mind's Eye paper and stickers and stamps, some gorgeous washi tape from Freckled Fawn, and a Studio Calico chevron stencil and Buttercup Mister Huey's.


And I feel better.


As sad and pathetic as that is...

Big kisses!!!! muuuuuuaaaaaaahhhh!!!!!!

  3. When I need retail therapy but don't have money to spend, I browse my favorite thrift store and usually, find some things to make me smile.
