a nice surprise



Look what I got today!! And no, I wasn't a bad girl and break my vow to not buy fabric in August. My dear friend sent this to me to thank me for helping her this summer with lesson plans and EQ5 help. What a total unexpected surprise. And it's almost like a reward for sticking to my vows. :) Thanks, M, you're a doll!

The one on the left is a new Kaffe Fasset, always a favorite of mine and the other is from Amy Butler, another favorite.

How sweet is that, getting fabric without breaking your vows. They are both very nice.
