Not What I had Planned

Today did not go as planned.  Ever have one of those days?  I ate an amazing breakfast made by my amazing husband.  We were just cleaning up, I had put the sheets into the washer, and was just deciding what to work on when the phone rang.  It was my DD1 and she was house hunting today.  She thought she had found THE house and could we drop everything and meet her there?  What do you say?  Of course we said yes and spent the next several hours driving all around and looking at houses.  NONE of the sewing I had planned to do got done.  I cleaned all day yesterday so I could sew today.  I guess that's how it goes right.  The house, BTW was a modular home (not that great) but pretty nice the kicker is that it is on 10 acres AND was very, very reasonably priced!  I think she will make an offer, although I think she might find a better house, but the land was awesome.  She could stay awhile and then sell it and then move.  OK enough about that for now.
I promised that I would show you the fabrics I bought in Shipshewana right? Here you go. I bought some fabrics for the frog quilt.

I also bought some water fabric for a quilt I plan on making this year for DD1's birthday.

Water for Prismata

I also bought some fabric to make a quilt for my dad. I saw the snowmobile fabric and knew he would love it. Then I found the golf balls too. I'm thinking snowball and nine patch, with the snowmobiles and golf balls being the snowballs and shades of blue the nine patches, what do you think?

Golf balls and snowmobiles

I did trim a quilt today but did not get pictures of it. I will. I think I will make some binding tonight so I can say I got something done today! haha. 
I guess it was just one of those days!

We always drop what we are doing for the kids....funny once you have kids they seem to be first all the way through. And we thought it was only until they were 18....giggle.

Love your fabrics. What is the 2nd and 3rd neutral fromt the left called??
