Just some stash additions.....

 The other night while talking with my best bud Thellie on the phone, her and I decided to get into some trouble.  Well we started out at The Quilted Castle.  While there I bought some Blackbird Designs fabric.  I have plans on stitching the Anniversaries of the Hearts all on one large piece of fabric and possibly making a fabric mat out of the charm squares.  We'll have to wait and see how that plan goes.  I could change my mind numerous times before I even start the project.
 I have been wanting some of the Blackbird Designs sampler fabric for quite awhile and was thrilled when I saw they still have some.  Everywhere I've looked, it's out of stock.  
 Then we went to the Fat Quarter Shop.  Well I love pink and when I saw this french fat quarter packet, I just knew it had to be mine.  It didn't take any trouble at all to jump that sucker right into my cart.  :o)
 These last three pictures are of fabs I bought at my local quilt shop.  The one above was just so clean and springy looking I couldn't resist.  I have a feeling that one is going to end up in a giveaway somehow.
 Next are the cherries.  This one I debated over but after all was said and done, it came home with me.
The above one is my favorite.  I fell in love with the red and then when I saw all the coordinating fabrics, I just couldn't resist.  I have the pattern planned for this one but if you notice, I'm going to be using some unusual threads.  I found at Joann a crochet cotton that matched perfectly.  The entire design is going to be fancy stitches but I haven't decided what yet.  I'm leaning towards some queen stitches mixed in with some spider webs and smyrna crosses.  This will be my next project as soon as I'm finished with the commissioned piece I am working on.  Hopefully that will be tomorrow so I can get it off to it's new owner.  I will post pics when I'm finished.
I also have some fibers coming from Nina which I am very excited about and I also have ordered some new minis from Vikki at HDF.  I will share pics of them with you when I receive them.
As always, Barbara

I can't choose a favorite group of fabrics, since you chose such beautiful cloth and thread, but I am really looking forward to seeing what you do with your favorite. Those colors are so rich!
