Home and tired...very tired...but here is my goodies!

Just home and very tired, but thought I would send out a quick post first...

I came home to a big surprize! A parcel in the mail, for me!!! 8-) I am going to tease you all by not posting the contents of the box until tomorrow morning sometime, but let me say, NICE GIFTIES!!! 8-) Thank you soooooo much for the PIF gift Mary Grace!!! I love it! 8-)
This is what I bought at Wallymart in Fargo on Tuesday night... I've heard a lot of good things about knitting with Bamboo needles, saw them, bought them... and then I decided to get a ball of cotton yarn right away... in case I wanted to do something in the evenings while recuperating from our spending sprees each day... not a stitch was made...
On Thursday morning, before we headed out of Fargo, my cousin dropped me off at Mill's End Textiles for a good hour and a half...
In this photo we have the yellow/blue and yellow/green fabrics that I thought would make kewl bias bindings. Also, a black/white for me growing collection, and the last 4 fabrics I thought worked well together, thinking the start of my collection for my bargello...?... We'll see... 8-)
I bought some tone on tones to add to my stash... I tend to not have enough of those... I think I could have looked for me, but I was pressed for time... 8-(
And I bought some Steam-a-Seam at $2.96 yd. Here we pay about $12 a meter!!! Found a kewl pattern that kept calling my name, and some Cover Buttons. I really like them, and use them often...
And, believe it or not, I did make it to Mayville, to Faye's Henhouse Quilt Shop Joyce!!! I've never asked my cousin to drive us there before (her vehicle) because it is 11 miles out of our way and she is not a quilter. I did ask this time and she was sweet enough to agree to it, and we had lunch in town there too.... happy, happy, happy! 8-)
Thanks Bf!!! 8-)
It is a very impressive shop, to say the least!!! I did not have as much time to really explore the shop, as I would have if I was with a bunch of quilters, but I did ok... 8-)

The one gal there was very helpful. Helped me pick out fabrics to go with my charm-pack project. I think we did pretty good. The floral is just cause I liked it and was on sale... and that pattern was calling to me too... 8-)
I found a neat little business card and measurement aid card in the bag with my goodies... a great little card!!! 8-)Well, that be it for all my sewing room purchases... I did buy myself 2 pairs of jeans, black pants, 5 tops, undies, and such, as well as some gifties for my little family...

A good time was had, and now it is time to catch up on some much needed sleep....
And if something I typed doesn't make sense to you, it probably won't to me if I read it again when I'm rested... lol! 8-)

Till tomorrow then!
Myra

Oh what yummy goodies you have there...do not feel guilty about the spending sprees!! it's what us quilters deserve and every magical fat quarter counts for the day we just can't get to the quilting shop.

I'm glad you were able to make it to Faye's! It's one of the best quilt stores around and they are soooo helpful. I have been wanting to go to Mill End Textiles but so far haven't made it. I've heard that there are great bargains to be had there.

It is so hard to fabric shop when you are with non-quilters. They tell you to take your time but I feel guilty and rush through the store.

You sure did some great buyings there. I especially like the tone on tone fabrics.
