DO YOU SMELL THAT? THAT IS THE SMELL OF FABRIC!!

Yesterday I had to go to the Post office. I didn't want to be out long, just go to the Post Office and home. RIGHT!!!

Well....as I am driving to the PO....a thought pops up in my mind that I should go to Tuesday Morning.

So I squish the thought......

I just want to run this errand and go home.  Tuesday Morning is like 20 minutes from the PO.

Thought pops up again....

SQUASH IT!!!!!!

But it won't quit bugging me (No pun intended).

so......my nose gets to work and I say to myself...it smells like Fabric.

 
So.....I relent and go to Tuesday Morning!! 
 
 
What harm can it do, just a few minutes out of my day.
 
 
OH MY STINKING GOSH>>>>>>>>>>
 
 
$4.99 for two yards......ummmm ummmmm


Heart Be still me!!!


Seven fat quarters for $2.99, I got five of these bundles and feel I should have taken them all.

Okay...so they are not from a Quilting shop....

I don't claim to be a fabric snob.  If you are and find this offensive....well....my apologies (NOT).

Come and feel this fabric...it feels great, not thin....it is a purty nice quality and I am proud as a peacock.

Oh...so you say that I don't need more fabric????  Don't judge me!!  I just can't help myself.....I truly can't and when the nose gets to sniffing out those fabrics, how can I deny myself.

Have a fabulous day, back to the HST's

Oh my how pretty these yummy fabrics are. And what a deal. I don't think I could have passed them up either. I'm sure they were sending out their radar signal so that you'd take them home and turn them into a beautiful item. Enjoy.

I may need to check out Tuesday morning again. I am currently making a quilt from a fat quarter pack I got there about 6 months ago. It is fun fabric and sure seems to be quilt shop quality!

They say to follow your heart, you just followed your nose! Great finds!

Aren't you glad you didn't squash that thought!! Great find. I have never been to Tuesday Morning, might have to see if I can find one. :)

We used to have fabric at our Tuesday Morning. I will have to take a look the next time I'm in the area.

Tammy said...

Yahoo! You scored. Good for you!

hetty said...

Hmmmm! I love that smell. Great finds, Barb! Wish we had a Tuesday Morning store around here.

KatieQ said...

Lucky you! I don't think I could have resisted those pretty colors. They look like Skittles or Life Savers.

JustCindy said...

When someone is a fabric snob, they miss out. Great job your nose did!

Rhonda said...

Hey Barb, hadn't you heard that the one you dies with the "most" fabric wins!!!!
Love your fabrics. I'll have to check out our Tuesday Morning one of these days.

KaHolly said...

You're so funny!! You'll find the perfect use for this fabric. A good deal is a good deal.

Joanna said...

The colors of the singles are gorgeous. Lucky you.

barbara woods said...

i am like you, love a bargain

Jacqueline said...

LOL and good for you. I think you found a great deal !

Deanna said...

Tuesday Morning carries some very nice stuff. I have seen Gees Bend quilt kits there and other high end products. I would say you did very well. And if I had been with you we would have probably cleaned the place out.

Gene Black said...

Sigh, we are addicts, that is all I have to say

Tammy said...

Ohh I need to go viit Tuesday Mornign again. it has been several months. And the 2 times I have been their I found fabric. And I am not a fabric snob. I love deals. Being on a strict budget is no fun. But with deals like these it makes you feel rich to be able to buy a couple items at a time for sure. And the prettier they are and the cheaper they are the happier I get. Great find. Enjoy it all.

West Michigan Quilter said...

Oh, I love the smell of fabric! I'm going to see if we have a Tuesday Morning here. You got some great bargains!

Wacky Woman said...

Hmmmmm.............I may need to take a drive over there tomorrow. Just sayin'

Barbara said...

Something like that happened to me last week too. Must be something in the air! ;)

sandra said...

What is Tuesday Mornings? I love fabric to so it would really make it hard for me to resisted. A friend and I went to this woman's home who had all this fabric in boxes and bags that her daughter had collected while she worked at fabric store. My friend and I went through it and organized it so well the lady gave us what ever we wanted for $10.00. Lol. Can't help myself , love fabric but love it to be organized.

It is cute fabric. I like to pick up fabric for my charity quilts. Such nice bright colors. I just scored big at the Austin Shop Hop. Fun day.

Helen Hollinger said...

I always love a bargain, I wish there was a Tuesday Morning in my area. I spent the morning shopping for material for three classes I am taking at quilt camp that our guild is having in September. :) Shopping always makes me happy.

QuiltSue said...

Well it just was meant to be wasn't it? Seeing those lovely colours, I really wish we had that shop over here.

Ruth said...

I LOVE Tuesday morning! You never know what they will have and it's only 8 min. from my house!!

Pokey said...

You have a good nose, Barb! My friend Ginny just bought fat Q's of Riley Blake there, yumm ~
:-}pokey

Teresa in Music City said...

Wow! They never seem to have fabric when I stop in there, but I did find a marvelous machine trolley bag once for a song - I was so excited!!!! I still love that bag!

Carrie P. said...

Good sniffer!

StitchinByTheLake said...

Either my Tuesday Morning never has fabric or someone is buying it before I get there. :( blessings, marlene

Jean said...

These are so pretty and very current! Sometimes the quilt shop fabrics end up in the discount places after it is first run at the shops. Now I think I should go to see if the Omaha store has any!

I was there last weekend and got a baby quilt (which is done now) some of the FQ bundles.. two of the wall hanging kits and I had in the past gotten some of the twin quilt kits and they are nice and only $7.99 I love it when they have fabric and quilting supplies.. love getting Fons and Porter items at such great prices too..
