No Sewing ... Vacation ... New Fabric

Hello !! Gosh, it's been a great week! I have done absolutely no sewing once again ... Spent two days in Amish Country, three days on the Harley's and just a bit of fabric purchases ...

So...if you have never been to JEllen's House of Fabric and you live in Ohio or near Cleveland ... you MUST go ... Joyce's shop is absolutely adorable! Joyce is such a very sweet lady and to top it off, her prices are fabulous!!! If you saw my last post i showed a bunch of the blue and purple's from Central Park by Kate Spain ... well i bought that at JEllen's too :O) Below are 8 yards of American Valor by Red Rooster that I purchased from JEllen's ... she had a sale this week on all red, white and blue fabric, buy one yard and get one yard free ... and the fabric was $8 a yard ... can you say WOO HOOO!!!

Here is a close-up of the fabric with words on it ... this is the first time i have purchased fabric with words on it, so i'm excited to figure out a quilt to make ... if you have any ideas, i'd luv to hear them!!!! Cuz all i can think of is wonky stars or one of the recent moda bake shop patterns called Starry Eyed but i'd call it starry night ...
I think tomorrow in our house will be a true Sunday ... it will be a Day of Rest ... Hope you had a wonderful week-end and hopefully I'll have some sewing to show soon. Have a great Monday :O)

As a matter of fact I do live somewhat near Cleveland so I will have to check this shop out! ;) Thanks for the heads up because I wouldn't have known about it if not for your mention of it!
