I went to the quilt shop

and look what jumped into my arms.

I have been trying to be good and decided I didn't need to buy another book. But I love Bonnie's patterns. I love Bonnie's website. I love Bonnie. So I couldn't put it back no matter how much I said I didn't need to bring home another book.
I have already found a pattern I have wanted to make for a while and I may get it ready for a retreat I plan to attend in August.

I really made a mess of my "stay away from the quilt shop" idea. I know I get in trouble when I go there. If I need something specific I can't find it for the life of me. If I am just going in because I have the time and want to browse, I find TONS. Oh man they had so many beautiful fabrics on clearance for $5 a yard. $5 a yard people! How I was I suppose to walk away from that?  Well, I didn't! Just so you know.

Also I had to replace a marking pencil that managed to walk away at the last retreat. Man I hate it when that happens! I'm sure not one intended to take it, but probably accidentally put it in with their stuff. You would think after all of these months they could have sent out an email saying they found a Sewline marking pencil in their stuff and wanted to return it to the rightful owner. Those things aren't free you know! I loved it and I used mine a lot so I replaced it today.

I need to go work because I managed to stop at a new gardening center also...more trouble...
