Loot

Can you tell I've been shopping. Believe it or not this little stash was bought for me at the insistence of DH. It's true, so I had to let him spoil me.

Softie patterns are from Melly and Me and the fabrics, buttons and trims to make them.
DH also put the snail tape measure in the bag, really I have enough tape measures but not one as cute as this.
If I don't hear from Anne from Finland by next Tuesday, I'll have to do another draw. I'll pass down the first and second giveaways and draw for the third choice again. A reminder that if you leave comments for a giveaway, please make sure you edit your profile in blogger to show your email address just in case you win!

Finally I have to tell you to race over to Mrs Schmenkman and leave a comment to be in the draw to win some fat quarters for her second blogiversary, that's if you haven't already.

Well how sweet is that!! I could never get my hubby to step foot into a quilt shop, but how funny that he would add a tape measurer to the bag...such a guy thing to think you need it LOL.

Hey, Janet - DH is a treasure, don't let him go! I have the Mrs Perkins pattern, too (somewhere?) - if you can wait that long, let's have a Mrs Perkins fortnight, week commencing 11 May, finishing 24 May! Any thoughts on that? I'm so flat chat up until then, but if we started to Post about it soon, we surely could have a lot of fun!
Hugs - Lurline♥

What a sweet hubby you have, mine always comes with me, probably because I don't have a US drives license yet:) but he waits patiently while I fill up a shopping cart with bolts of fabric. I've been eying off the M&M Kola pattern, think it's time I stopped looking and just buy it. Love your selection of fabrics and what a sweet tape measure.

Looks like your DH is a keeper as well, Janet. Love your fabric choices and the rickrack. As for the snail tape measure, I'd pinch him in an instant!

Thanks for sharing.
