Shopping ... Addicted To Fabric Part 2

Here is Part 2 of our shopping ... on day one we went to the Melting Pot for lunch ... OMG it was awesome! I forgot to take pictures of the main course (chicken, steak and shrimp) but i think in the future i'd skip dinner and just go for dessert ... it was fabulous!!!! We had s'mores chocolate dipping ... it's milk chocolate with marshmellow cream and crushed graham crackers...

here is the chocolate and marshmellow cream and then they pour something in it that ignites it so they can toast the marshmellow and then throw in the graham crackers....YUMM-O...

The chocolate all mixed up and half eaten...
And this is the plate of goodies that we dipped in the chocolate ... bananas, brownies, strawberries, pound cake, rice krispie treats and cheese cake!!!
Then it was on to more shopping ... we went to Country Fabrics in Shiloh, Ohio ... if you live in Ohio it is so worth the trip ... the price of their fabrics is out of this world! It is owned by an Amish family and her philosophy is to keep the prices down so people can afford to sew. I don't think I saw prices any higher than $6.79 a yard. We did find they had some inexpensive fabric mixed in with their Moda and other brands, so just something to watch for if you use only quilting fabric.

Here is some Fall fabric i purchased ... i plan on making a large pinwheel table topper or small pinwheel throw to go with my living room...

This is the Christmas fabric i bought to make a stocking table topper ... no, your eyes are going ... my picture is blurry ... sorry about that! Anyways ... i just love the snowmen! And...i'm going to put gold sashing between the blocks ... i've made 12 blocks already and when they are layed out, they just sorta run in to each other...also, i'm thinking of making a few stockings backwards and throwin those in ... what do you think??
Oh Yes ... Evening Mist ... i love this fabric because it is so soft ... not sure what I'm making with this but I came across more of the sage fabric so i purchased that to go with the fat quarter haystack i bought previously.
Other than that I bought about 7 or 8 yards of white on white and cream on cream for future projects ... i think i did pretty good and didn't go overboard on what I bought...I've decided that I need to stop making impulse purchases when it comes to fabric because most of the time i sit back and say ... why did i buy that?!?!?!

Hope you are having a great day!!
