Fabric, oh Fabric...

Yes, I did some retail therapy while I was in North Carolina.  I spent a few dollars ( few meaning more than 2 :-)) at Thimble Pleasures my favorite quilt shop, and Mulberry Silks where I have been shopping since I was in middle school ( and they still know my name).  When I returned to MA there were several packages waiting for me.  One from my WTP Fat Quarter Swap, my most recent order from Z and S Fabrics, and a set of 4-patch squares from the My Favorite Quilters flickr group.
I've made 3 quilties for my Flickr swap groups...I can't post photos as my partners have not yet received them, but I promise to post all 4 ( yeah, swap-aholic right here) next week.

I finally finished the Amy Butler Weekender bag for the WTP Swap.  Whew- it is not something I plan on repeating again anytime soon!  And then, I just had to make a box bag to go along with it.  It was hard to put in the mail, but hopefully my partner will love it as much as I do!

Well, I  have many, many projects on my sewing table, and only 3 more days before the students return from Spring Break.  It has finally hit me that I only have 10 more weeks before my contract is up here...my home.  It feels a bit better after some time away, but it is still hard.  I have a few leads on jobs, and places to live, but nothing concrete.  
Happy Spring to you all!  Peace be with you.
