Calendar Challenge Material Purchased

Hello! Well not a lot has been happening...didn't do any sewing over the weekend like I wanted to, but did do some shopping!! Yesterday I ordered some valentine material from the Fat Quarter Shop so I hope to have that the end of the week and start working on a Crazy Eights pattern. It's cute and small and will work perfect for a little Valentines Throw. If you haven't seen the Love Is In The Air collection, it is absolutely adorable! Last week I went to the quilt store and purchased some pink, purple and blue material (pictured below) for the Calendar Challenge so since hubby is working this weekend I will definitely get started on that. I'd like to add some yellow and greens to the mix and possibly some oranges, but that will wait until the first week in March when my cousin and I are planning our own shop-hop over in Cleveland. I think I need to get some material that has a little punch to it and now that I look at the purples...definitely need to add something to that collection.
Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Hey I live not too far from Cleveland - have you had your hop yet? :) What shops have you been to? There's one in Richland I'd like to visit, not sure how far that is from you, but it's Mara's Fabric & Gifts (I think), she was a vendor at a quilt show I went to. LOVED her display so I'm anxious to hear about the shop. :)
