I have had a wonderful few days. My husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary with an amazing dinner out,
my girlfriends and I checked out the stunning, amazing, breathtaking Chihuly exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens,
my family took in Guardians of the Galaxy (awesome)
and hit the Denver County Fair (disappointing this year, for the first time ever).
And the next day we went out to brunch, with bottomless mimosas.
And that’s where the Public Service Announcement comes in. Don’t drink multiple mimosas and then go to a fabric shop having a 40% off everything moving sale.
Um, 26 yards of fabric, 4 spools of Aurifil, a pattern, and 2 packs of Kaffe Fasset shot cotton charm squares.
First, 6 yards of plain white went straight to be prepped for tomorrow’s adventure: indigo dyeing! Annie and I will be joining a fab friend to try it for the first time.
And possibly due to my happy brunch buzz, I let the kids pick out fabrics.
Science themed organics, crowns, and Tardis blue solid.
Ninjas, throwing stars, bow ties and bacon.
Mom: (she was the one who took us to brunch, isn’t she awesome?)
And finally, me:
Cute animals- expect to see the hot pink in my Tula blocks ASAP, a fab blue print, a fun purple halloween print, and 3 yards of the amazing Maude Asbury Xmas print.
And the rest…
I needed some grey Aurifil (I had just started my last spool), and the blue is for Annie’s Tardis quilt- not yet started. And purple? I can always use more purple. As for the Swoon pattern, I had been seeing amazing swoon blocks all over the interwebs but never got around to getting the pattern. So now I have it. And you can never have too many Kaffe shot cotton charm squares. Maybe I should have bought another pack?
And, not pictured, Annie found a spirograph set which I agreed to get for her.
The fabric was all 50% off, and everything else 40% off. So this looks obscene, but, at least it was a good deal.
Please say yes…
