Comfort Food

Can you tell by my post yesterday that I desperately need some sunshine? I can't remember the last time we had a sunny day.

I did manage to get to the grocery store and WalMart for supplies yesterday. Which was good because I needed some "comfort food". Now, I don't actually comfort myself with anything edible. Instead, I add to my "already more than I need" stash!

While wandering around the craft department in WalMart, I found these beautiful Brocades and Satins:

New Fabrics

I was good, I only bought 1/4 yard pieces! And now, I can't wait to sew up some new blocks with them!

While walking past the jewelry department, I noticed a rack with some "sale" items on it so I went over to look at that and found these earrings:

New Jewelry

These were only $3.00! I didn't buy them to wear them. They're a bit longer than what I like in earrings but they were purple and kind of look Victorian so I thought I could use them on a crazyquilt. And the cool thing is, there's 2 of them!

I then remembered that the new Quilting Arts magazine usually comes out on March 1st so I hopped in my Hotrod Lincoln (that's the term that Scott uses to refer to my car.) and headed over to Borders bookstore where I found not only the new Quilting Arts magazine but also the new Bead & Button magazine:

New Magazines

The bracelets on the cover of the Bead & Button magazine are gorgeous! I wish I could figure out how to make one. But I have a terrible time trying to comprehend beading without a foundation to sew them onto! I do however think, that those bracelet designs would make for some interesting crazyquilt seam treatments! Hmmmmmm......

I wish I had your Wal-Mart! Mine leans heavily to kiddy patterns and cottons. Satin? Brocade? It is to laugh...

What fun shopping. Love the fabric colors. Glad you had a chance to get out. Want to come visit my sunshine and warmth? We're parked next to the river and there are lots of tall old trees, as well as grass. It's quiet, except for birds, and just wonderful.

I see you've been doing a lot of charity works while I was gone. They are all beautiful!
