I am still adjusting to my new life out in the country. I really don’t get cell service. I drive 45 minutes away once a week for groceries. The most exciting thing that happened today is that I saw two coyotes. It is weird that this is my life. But I’m loving it for the most part.
I do a majority of my fabric shopping online, so it was a treat to go the closest “big” city (over an hour away) last month in search of fabric. At the end of my shopping day, I wandered into a weird building full of craft supplies. I wasn’t expecting to find any good fabric in there, but to my surprise as I browsed the aisles, I started seeing designers I know…
Mainly they had a bunch of older Bonnie and Camille fabrics that I was super excited to see. I picked up two that I have loved for a while. Then I looked over on the clearance rack and Happy Go Lucky was half off! My guess is no one thinks to go there for fabric and so they don’t sell much. I helped them out a bit.

Marmalade 55054 Raspberry
Vintage Modern 55042 Sky
Happy Go Lucky 55061 Aqua
Then, while I was checking out, they had big stacks of yardage for the lowest prices I’ve ever seen for fabric. This place is dangerous. I really stayed strong and only picked these two out for future backings.

It was great to finally get to support my LQS and other local businesses and get some time back in civilization. I think I’ll plan on doing that once every few months. I’ll share more of my purchases next week! There may be some gold sparkle involved.
Linking up with Sunday Stash, this week hosted by the amazing Sarah from Sarah Quilts! Definitely go check out her stash shame (aka abundant fabric awesomeness) this week 🙂
