Love and the Fabric Fix

For my 70th birthday, Cousin Ann, in London...gifted me with the best present of all.
A gift certificate of a very generous amount to Hancock of Paducah..my favorite online fabric store.
I decided to save it for a very stormy day.
Sure enough, the gales came last week, and I became stuck in the mud.
My fabric came today.  Euphoria!!!!
Thank you Ann...Thank you so much 
xoxoxo
 First up...a great selection of whites/supporting fabrics...
 Next...whimsy...my middle name..
 Stormy skies, holidays and houses
And, cute as a button children's animal fabric..

Yesterday, Poor Pitiful Pearl came again for a visit.
I could not get rid of her...so I told her, that in spite of my fall,
I was going to Foust fabric outlet and to lunch with my friends.'
She had to stay home!!
I stuck to my guns and had a great time...me and my pain meds and my peeps.
 It would have been hard to pass on the above fabric for $2.50 a yard.
Nor, the bottom Christmas felt cutouts for the children at 39 cents a yard.
I also bought Insul-Brite and some scissors..
From i Love Fabric came these 2  half yard pieces...with $3 shipping..not bad.

I am all better now...bruises from my fall , under control.
Gratitude that I broke nothing..
All better thanks to a little...no..A LOT.of help from my friends.
xxxooo

What a wonderful gift. Have you ever seen project bags, that is the new thing for knitters & cross stitching (I am back doing cross stitching). The Twisted Stither on you tube has a great video. I am not good in sewing but I need to try it.

I'm sorry to hear of your fall, but I'm glad you're feeling better now.

You got some great fabrics! Therapy sewing sounds like it might help! I hope you have fun using that new fabric!
