New fabrics

Today Browder & I made the haul to Beth's Heirloom outside, or maybe inside?, Wetumpka! I had a 25% off coupon and have been itching for new stuff so we drove up there this morning. I mainly got ginghams (some I have and was low on, and some I don't have). Below is a royal blue, orange, navy FAT gingham, then an orange, brown and a smidge lighter brown gingham and lastly, an orange fabric (thinking fall).
Love polka dots! I had yellow, but this is a buttery yellow and a pretty teal color.
And lastly these great TRI-CHECKS (thanks, Gail!!) I have a couple of these already and love them! The 3rd one down is turquoise and brown which is really cute!

As I was checking out with my coupon, the lady checking me out asked me to write my name on the coupon. When I did she "recognized" me and said she read my blog on occasion and was excited about the new EB applique alphabet (which I have not sewn yet). It was kind of fun to be recognized, or moreso my name!! Beth's has GREAT fabric! I could seriously go crazy in there. But, I'm trying to be rational and think fall and Christmas since I have tubs and baskets and drawers of fabric already!!

Hey Rosemary!
I was in there when you were and i heard you checking out. i thought, I'll speak to her...then i thought, she may not remember me, so I didn't. Glad you found some new fabric - Beth's is really the best in these here parts! :)

I think that is funny that you were excited to be recognized! I found your blog from the link thats on Embroidery Boutique website and I check your blog pretty regularly for inspiration. If I recognized you in a fabric store - I would definitely want to talk to you! All of your stuff is so cute!

You found Tri-Checks!!! I've been looking EVERYWHERE around here! I really need the blue/red/white. I bought the orange/green/white and navy/kaky/white on ebay last week.

Oh and I can find every gingham here except for orange and white! - I really need that living in TN. Going to Knoxville tomorrow so hoping to find some there!
