New Fabric At Easter

I tried so hard to refrain from buying fabric this past weekend when I was hunting for purse handles, but I couldn't resist - the sales once again got the best of me!

Here's Haul #1 (the large chunk of blue fabric underneath is double-width fabric, 108" wide in fact, that was on sale for 10$/m, what a steal!):

And #2:

And here are all the beautiful fabrics in their glory. Some I have ideas for, others I just liked or knew I had been missing that particular colour in my stash at some point.

And the actual purpose of the trip! I was successful! I bought the last black plastic handles in the store, and the last semi-circle bamboo handles, but best of all, the clerk said I could call them and order them, yippie! I also decided to give the D-shaped handles a try.

So for me, the Easter weekend was a full success! Anyone else got fabric from the Easter bunny (via your own credit card :) ?

I did get fabric, but was ashamed to tell it ;-). Love yours. Looks like spring. All mine were fall/winter leftovers. Lane

I was told "if it calls your name, take it home"...I really like that wide fabric...beautiful backing. and you're right it was a great haul.

Love that leaf fabric that you picked out
