The last of it.

Oh, almost forgot to show off my loot! I had a blast shopping for fabric. Most of our sewing is for patterns, and we use, for the most part, fabric that will be coming out the next quilt market. But these little goodies will end up in my own personal stash.

We rounded out our long drive home with a stop in Bakersfield at Strawberry Patches. What a cute shop, I wish it wasn't four long hours away from us!


I'm not going to lie though, the valley is beautiful this time of year.

That little Big Boy is so cute... I never realized it was a chain. I remember the exterior rather large statue at one is Bismarck when I was very little.

The Valley was beautiful and the BIG Boy is cute but they both don't hold a candle to that wonderful fabric you have there! I have got o find me some of the apples pieces. Too cute!

OK Pam, I am trying to build a little stash myself but I need your expert advice. How much do you usually buy of these fabrics?
