Beautiful fabrics

Today at the local quiltshop (which is MY favorite quiltshop of all)
NEW FABRICS
not one bolt..........
not ten bolts....................
HUNDREDS of new bolts of beautiful fabrics.
Colours
Beautiful colours

As a volunteer some of us helped preparing the fabric into 30 cm's and to find a place to store them in the shop. This is my friend Britt making 30 cm's. She teared the fabric and I folded it.


And just look at these wonderful fabrics

These are just some of the wonderful
fabrics that has arrived the shop.
My eyes is shopping
my wallet is crying
nothing has come home with me
YET
Saying for today:

If men liked shopping,
they'd call it research

Hi May, I don't know why, but us women that quilt or just sew get our fixes with the touch and fill of fabrics. Men have the same fixes with fishing lures and sporting items (I call it big boy toys) I want to get new fabric in on the online shop, but I still need to list fabrics I have.
Keep Stitchen',
