More fabric? It is not all my fault!

I received a package from my brother yesterday and it contained four pieces of fabric he bought when he was in Melbourne touring with Bruce. Aren't they wonderful? There is a meter of each which translates into about 4 1/2 yards. The store was Clegs Dress Fabrics. This is his way of thanking me for the baby quilts and taking care of his house. This is the second time he has done this and I am now starting to amass a collection of these fabrics. They will be going into the fabric storage room and have their own space on the shelves.

All of this fabric was manufactured by Nutex Co. in New Zealand. It has a lovely hand to it.

Now the fabric I can't blame on my brother is this Halloween fabric that came from Nuts & Bolts Fabric in Edgemont, S.D. Earleene, the owner, sent me all she had of this spider web fabric which came to 8 1/4 yards all in one piece and three FQs. I got a really good deal because it was on sale. I will report at the end of the month the damaged I have done to the stash this month. I still have some more fabric coming from Hancock's in Paducah for a special project.

Last night I got the third piece pieced of the quilts for the project I can't talk about. I was so relieved to get it done. I worked like a crazy person and had no time to be neat about my surroundings. I will go to the house at lunchtime and clean up the mess. I am very happy with the way this third piece came out.

The weather is still very cold here. It was 17 degrees! The weather this week looks like it is going to be all over the place, but it doesn't look like we are going to get hit with the next system coming. Right now the east coast looks like they could be in for another hit of nasty weather.

You are going to need more storage in the fabric room!
