not socks .... SURPRISE !

not very long ago, i won a prize ... i blogged about it here. the fabrics arrived last weekend, and they're way more beautiful than i imagined. each is a fat quarter. each wants to be part of something bigger or perhaps something small unto itself. the fabric with the paint by number birds is my favorite! it's awfully tempting to order some of just that print for a nice summer dress.

i'm going to visit my folks next week, and i'm going to be in spitting distance of mary jo's. and though i don't feel totally ready to choose colors for my next quilt, that won't stop me from spending at least half a day in the quilting cottons of mary jo's. i might purchase !!! EEEKS !!!

can you believe that i have never set foot inside mary jo's? given where i grew up, i think this is something of a tragedy. when the house thing is done, maybe you can take me on a tour--i need guidance obi-wan.

Come by on your way home or back home to Raleigh if you can. We would love to see you. We are having a party Saturday night. Come have some chicken pie.
