Quilt-onomic Stimulus

Yesterday (on a Saturday!!), I had to work for my day job. I had to get up before the sun and travel to Kennesaw to speak at a workshop. Working most of the day on a Saturday was not my idea of fun but it went OK and about 100 people showed up so at least there was a good crowd. Since I had to drive by Marietta on the way home anyway, I drove to the Big Chicken, took at right, and went to Little Quilts. (Aside: the Big Chicken is a great landmark and is used to give directions in the Marietta area as in "turn right at the Big Chicken." The beak and eyes move too!)

It's been a long time since I visited Little Quilts and even though just last weekend I said "I don't need to buy anymore fabric!!!!!!!"
Ummmmmm.........


Here's my goodies (wait.... is that fabric??????) The cream and purple fabric on the bottom has a purpose and I've been looking for something to use for a specific project. The other yardage.....I have no idea how that ended up in the bag--let's call it a Quilt-onomic Stimulus.
The rest of the day was pretty much a wash since I was tired from working late Friday then getting up at driving to and from Cobb County in the rain and speaking. I took a nap and watched TV and that's about it.
From last week: here are the photos of the wool BOMs I'm working on. Both are from Primitive Gatherings and both are from 2007 (!)
This was a Block of the Week
This one is called "A Primitive Garden" and my friend Kristie is working on this also.

I was at Little Quilts years ago--about 1998 or so. And yes, we did turn at the Big Chicken. Great shop.

I am a firm believer in quilt-onomic stimulus. Glad you got to Little Quilts since you had to go all the way to Marietta(haha).
CAn't wait for Thimbles but I know that you are away next weekend. I like the idea of calling the new bag the Bad Meliss overflow bag. So funny

I am guilty of some quiltonomics stimulous as well...I just couldn't help myself.

Lovely fabrics you managed to find in your quest to help stimulate the economy! :-)
