This year marked a big step in my journey towards becoming a sports fan! Instead of hiding out in my office, taking advantage of the Big Football Distraction on TV so I could shop my heart out online, I brought my nifty iPad into the living room and did my fabric shopping in the same room as the Superbowl, right under my husband's nose. He was too busy whooping and hollering at the television to notice. I even glanced up at the screen during the commercials. I know what color outfits the teams were wearing, and I'm pretty sure the half-time show was supposed to be a joke but no one got it. I'm like, THIS close to becoming a professional sportscaster, don't you think?
Meanwhile, I have ordered lots of goodies to energize my quilting fabric stash. Nevermind that I don't have enough room for all of the fabric I already own, or that I don't have enough time to make all the quilts that take shape in my mind. Eventually, there will be time to quilt again, and my stash will be ready to inspire me!
I was shopping at eQuilter, one of my favorite online quilt shops, and these are some of the goodies that found their way into my shopping cart:
Then there were a few other fabrics I couldn't live without because they were just so darned cute:
This is just a smattering of what I bought last night. I can't post everything because my husband reads my blog, and he gets alarmed -- he doesn't realize that I only got a half-yard piece of each of these, and he also doesn't realize that quilting fabric is WAY less expensive than the designer drapery fabrics I use in my work.
Also, it's possible that Bernie may still be mad at me for ruining the end of the Superbowl for him. I didn't realize that he had recorded the game and was watching it about 20 minutes behind, so when the New York Times news alert "Green Bay Packers Win World Series" popped up on my iPad, I read it out loud, thinking the game must be over and it must be replays or something on the screen.
