SAMOAN GOODNESS.....UMMMM UMMMMM GOOD!!!

First I want to show you these wonderful fabrics that I ordered a light time ago.... These solids finally came last Thursday, the day we were leavng for our house hunting trip, didn't even have time to enjoy them.



So now to the Samoan goodness......

I just had to go out and purchase some fabrics before I left....just had to...




Can't you just see my puppy dog eyes looking up to my husband when he sees the credit card bill.....with me saying "I just had too"!!



How could I resist....



Infact, now that I am back, there just might be another trip to the stores....because...."I just have too!"



I was like a hungry dog fighting for that last bone.... The store clerk was helping me, speakig to others in Samoan and laughing.....



Was I the context of their conversation? If I was, didn't stop me one lick!

You see that red fabric....I only wanted a few yards but as soon as she plopped it out on the table....my mother's voice spoke to me....saying...."if you just buy two yards of that fabric...you best know now, that fabric will be mine!!!!!"

Oh yes.....I know how to handle that voice and my mother too..... I got five yards....

Kim said...

You are so funny! Gorgeous color and prints you have here. I can see why you needed to make one last fabric haul. This should all help the moving to a new place transition go ever so nicely - that and your mom will be very happy when she sees this red, so naturally hubs will want his favorite MIL to be happy and won't bat an eye lash over the bill! Right?

Best buy up for the stash before you must say your final good bye right?

Pamela said...

I really love the blues!! And the last ones!! I wouldn't turn down any of them, come to think of it.

kpaints said...

You GO girl! You have to have those when you are back stateside!

Cyndi said...

Oh, I would have been right there with you, buying away and burning up that credit card! LOL!!! And of course you had to... you may never get back to American Samoa once you leave! Those are all beautiful fabrics, Barb, and who cares if the salesclerk and the other ladies were talking about you.... they were probably calling you a Saint for putting all that money in their pockets! :o)

XOXO,

Cyndi

Beautiful. I'd be buying bolts. And your DH is such a sweetie, I'm sure he'll understand. You may never have a chance to buy these fabrics again.
