Some Recent Purchases

I haven't had much time at night to blog and catch you up on some of my goings on so
I thought I would take a minute on my lunch to share some recent purchases. 
When we were driving up to GR I asked DH to stop in Mason so I could go to Kean's
They are a candy/general store with fabric!! 
They usually have things I can't find at the shops near my house. 
More modern fabrics. 
They didn't disappoint. 
They had gotten in some FMF so I bought a little, no really, just a little.

Stash addition

Oh and the orange? 
 AMH Innocent Crush. 
 I love orange lately! 
Believe it or not, there is another shop right around the corner, although it is an actual quilt shop.
 It is called Yards of Fabric. 
 I couldn't find a web address for it but it carries a lot of more traditional fabric.
 Just look at this beauty I found for a quilt for my daughter, the peacock breeder!

Peacock fabric for Shelby

There were companion fabrics that I think I will stop back and check out tomorrow when I drive back to GR to see my dad.
 I was going to make the
 I kept hemming and hawing about how I wanted to do that and I think I will use these colors and maybe some purples. 
 That quilt is on my list but kind of far down the list, LOL.

I did finish binding a quilt last night but need to get photos. 
 I will be spending the day at my dad's tomorrow cleaning and running him around.
 I hope it's a nice day tomorrow!
 Have a wonderful day!

Hope things go well with, and for, your Dad. It's hard when they think they are still independent, but clearly they need some help. Thinking of you during this time.
