Fabric heaven!

Today was day 2 of the sewing and craft show and I waffled all evening about should I or shouldn't I go back to the show for the by the pound fabric.  Finally the decision was made that we would make that stop part of the Saturday errands.  First thing though.  If I was going to do this, I needed to be there for 9 am.  OMG!  The doors were open before 9 and we were allowed in to lurk.  OMG!  There was no one else at my fabulous local quilt shop booth and I could see the pile of by the pound samples.  I spied a stack of Sunkissed, Fruitcake by Basic Grey, some Love U, blah blah blah.  The announcement was made that the show was open and I started to pile up stacks of fabric loveliness.  I really had no competition.  The other shoppers who arrived were seemingly looking for things that I was not.  It was all very polite with people chatting as they pawed through mounds of fabric.  Everyone was loathe to mess it up but eventually we got over ourselves.  And here are the pictures of the spoils!

The whole mess of it
Fruitcake in all the colour ways and when is it too early to talk about Christmas fabric?

How much fun is this???

Sunkissed in all the colour ways too!

Love this line!!!

Yep, some Japanese cottons too!

This is a huge pile of romantic floral print in all colour ways as well!
So complete fabric love and I have to hand it to my fabulous local quilt shop for having the great idea of selling the samples like this, a couple of times a year and by the pound!  It makes the whole adventure like a quest!!!!!  And the icing on the cake was that we were so early that the parking lot attendants had not arrived so the parking was FREE!!!!  Totally awesome!
