WIP Sunday: Shop Hopping!

I went MIA last Sunday so I could go on the fabric shop hop! That sounds like a fantastic reason to leave my poor blog! We went to a few of the shops last week and finished up our tour today. It is 5 shops total with more than a bit of driving involved, but well worth it. My quilty pals and I saddled up for the day and went a bit crazy! I think it is my favorite time of year after Halloween of course.
I thought I'd share a photo of my crazy haul.
Shop Hop Haul
I got some great deals too! This pile includes: 3D peace sign fabric with coordinating stripe for a pillowcase for my sister, an entire quilt kit so I can make myself a Grinch quilt, a coffee themed table runner kit, 2 yards of black Kona, two different versions of the Alexander Henry Day of the Dead fabric that I seem to hoard (1/2 yard of the black, 1 yard of the cream), 2 yards of decor weight Alexander Henry Skullduggery that I hope to get turned into a tailored vest, 6 fat quarters, 2 colorways of the Alexander Henry mushroom fabric for my gnome quilt stash, 2 different 1 yard cuts of Halloween fabric ( my free gift for showing my finished quilt from last year!), and a yard of this wonderful black and white with pops of color stuff that I fell in love with.
Not included in the photo is a yard of some super sweet stuff I bought with a certain cocktail swilling sweetie in mind and all of the fat quarters we got as prizes at the various shops. I also got a couple of really nice pattern books as prizes.
All in all it was a fantastic little road trip with my pals. Lots of laughs and fun (and money spent) by all.
Oh, I'm still working away at plenty of projects. Stay tuned for more updates on those. ;)

Yay! Nice haul! Now I want to see some projects come out of this stash. I seem to recall shop hops of years past with the fabrics STILL in your stash :P

Nice! I have the skulduggery fabric by Alexander Henry in white....I've had it for YEARS and haven't found the "perfect" project for it yet.
