the stash has grown…

Oh my… I’ve got 2 words that are describing that last week well… Exiting and Exhausting…  I was giddy to go back to school and have that brain working out again but it was stressful. You know, change of routine kind of stressful. But good news is I survived or should I say WE survived lol!  I have a lovely young lady that travels with my in the car for half the distance and this IS nice! Sooo less boring🙂 Classes are cool even if I didn’t have all the class in chemistry (teach was out of time) and I couldn’t understand all of the lab prep. I looked hard and now I can make it yay! (hard to do a math formula without any explanations whatsoever….)

But I wanted to show you the goodies that went back home with me from my trip at my friend Kim…

(alert: big fabric pictures heavy post…)

We went to FOUR fabric stores.

My friend Kim is so generous… She insisted that I come home with some from her stash too… Her husband was kind of disappointed that I was not bringing more lol!

Yep, her stash is BIG!

But how couldn’t it be so when she lives so near from great and “cheap” fabric stores? The fabric costs was ridiculous from what I would have paid for that much yardage here. THis made me miss living in the States… And surprisingly everything fitted in small carry on suitcase!

And since I’m already talking fabrics… I’ve went and purchase a fabric scrap bag online too🙂 I love the fabrics Michelle is using (and you will see most of the patterns I use there too lol) And I jumped at the occasion to buy some of her scraps…

just lookit…

I was bummed I couldn’t find any hex paper at the fabric stores…

The cute mouse pin is going in my locker at school to hold notes for my friend! and I’m sure I will find a good use for that RED button! (I think by now you all now I love red?!)
Thanks Michelle for all this eye candies!🙂

I still can’t believe all the good stuff that as come home with me! I just go and pet it all day lol!
