The Beginning of a Fabric Stash

After looking at so many beautiful finished projects, particularly Becky's, I decided I needed to start collecting different fabrics that I thought would look good with some of the projects I hope to stitch soon. So, today, my mother and I went fabric shopping. We went to Hancock Fabrics, Hobby Lobby and Walmart. I picked out lots of different fabrics I thought were pretty and purchased a 1/4 yard of each. I also picked out a few from the remnants baskets. Luckily Hancock Fabrics and Hobby Lobby had calico prints on sale this week. I ended the day with 40 pieces of fabric and a few packs of buttons. I am so excited and can't wait to use these beautiful fabrics to finish some of the many stitching projects I have also collected.

Nice selection of fabrics! As a quilter I just LOVE fabric and love to go fabric shopping :-D.
So much of my quilting fabric stash is finding its way into my cross stitch projects!

Have a GREAT weekend!
