After Christmas Sale

I really wish all of you had been with me today. I walked into the local Hurst/Ben Franklin here in St.George and they had their Christmas fabric at 70 % off. Shelves of beautiful Moda's and Robert Kaufmans just to name a few. I really had a hard time narrowing down my selection there were so many choices. The sales lady said it was an unadvertised special. No kidding!

I was thinking I was tired of all the Christmas decor, and ready to put it all away. Not as of today! I have so many projects running through my mind on how I could use this fabric. I almost don't know where to begin. Maybe if I start my Christmas projects soon I might have a few of my presents ready for next year.
I didn't have time this last fall to join Nanette of Freda's Hive in her Christmas Cottage Exchange. I still want to make her pattern as a 2009 goal.
I also could use some of this fabric to make Kim's (of Bitty Bits and Pieces) Scrappy Kaleidoscope quilt.
Every time I look at their blogs I want to sit next to them and make everything they are making.

Don't you think this pin cushion from Jill Finley of Jillily Studio would look good in Christmas fabrics? I'd better get started on these right away! I have a few project to finish up first, but then look out Christmas here I come again.

Ben Franklin also put all their Halloween and Fall fabrics at 70% off. I didn't buy any today, but I already know I'm in trouble.

70% off...I might have to find my way up to St. George this weekend...although I'm supposedly saving right now for about 5 new lines coming out this spring that I think I need to buy!

Well I noticed how you didn't tell us about the sale until AFTER you'd been...were you afraid we'd show up? :o) I absolutely LOVE the scrappy kaleidoscope.

Wow Nedra! Our Ben's only marked their Christmas stuff down 60% off. I went in today to buy some I saw Saturday, but it was already gone! BooHoo. It was a ME print - white with black polka dots. Thought it would make a really cute kids quilt by mixing it with assorted brights. Oh well. I'm still waiting to hear from Victoria......
