How did this happen??

I went to my local quilt shop for this

because the consensus of the color for my big stitch needle on the bottom border is grey, not brown. And I wanted to try No. 24 chenille needles as recommended by Kate Conklin in her recent tutorial.

How did I end up walking out of the store with all of this as well?

Does that ever happen to you too?

  6. Ha Ha YES! I went in for the same thing as you earlier this week! It was my first time in the store. I knew nothing about the store. It ended up being a low quality fabric store but their prices were ridiculously cheap. I left with a huge bag of things and spent around $30. One item alone would have cost that anywhere else.

  10. It happens to me all the time (unless the kids are with me and then I tend to get out of there as quick as possible!)

    I love the colour of that thread! It's going to be gorgeous. Thanks for the link :)

  11. All the time!!! I work at my favortie local fabric store and I can't seem to leave without a whole new bag of fabric. I love hand quilting with perle...another option for needles are the Piecemaker Embroidery Needles size 5...or the Fons and Porter Utility Quilting Needles size 5 (12 per pack plus a grabby circle in case you can't pull the needle through) The Fons an Porter are made specifically for #8 Perle cotton!!! Have fun!

  12. Not anymore! I have been humbled to purchase only the cheapest options on my short list in any store I venture into. AND, I have walked out of many tempting situations with no purchase in hand. My mantra of "use what I have" is actually working! It is beginning to feel okay!

  13. I hate it (and love it) when that happens! Love your new additions to your stash! Looks like you picked up some great basics to go with lots of other fabrics.

  14. I happens ALL the time at Target. Need deoderant and laundry detergent? Leave with diapers, a frame, new pants, jammies for Iris and nothing at all on my original list.

    T doesn't even bother to hassle me about it anymore--it was a losing battle. : )
