Joann is worse than Target

WARNING: money sucking enabling ahead.
 This was Sammi's outfit of choice yesterday morning - purple flowers, Thomas print smock, and pink striped Thomas overalls. LOL
 I decorated the mantel for Valentine's Day, and I LOVE IT. All of my candy boxes + the flowery IKEA picture. So sweet.

But onto the point of the post, I swear to you Joann is a bigger money suck than Target right now. I WANT EVERYTHING when I go in there. They are FINALLY on the cute novelty print bandwagon. I have bought Grant's weight in fabric. Me, the vintage fabric hoarder, buying new fabric.

Unheard of.

Never do it.
 I RAN over there to buy these foxes. There was very little left and I wish I had bought it all.  (They are on a gray background.) When I went back today I looked for the rest but they were already gone. I would seriously like to redo the whole house in these foxes.
 Maybe dogs in wellies are more your speed?
 Or a pastel scallop?
 Sammi LOVES these mermaids, I am working on a new quilt with them. (They are disappearing fast too and I am trying to resist buying more of them to hoard.)
 How about gorgeous flowers?
 I die from Easter cuteness?
 Birds in kerchiefs?
 Very Japanese-esque cute bugs?
Sweet aqua tweety birds?

Lord have mercy on my fabric hoarding soul. I already want to go back and buy more and we just got home! LOL

Also, in Sarah is a dolt news, I did not realize I could get Mollie Makes and Gathered and other international craft magazines on my new, bought for myself for Christmas, iPad. D'OH.  I did buy myself some awesome quilt designing apps for it.

Dave and I will be wrestling over that thing now. Bwhahaha!

Happy Friday.

Try not to hoard all the fabric in Joann, okay?


  1. What fabulous fabric. It almost makes me wish I could sew!!!

  2. I don't even sew and I want to hoard that fabric! The mermaids are dreamy and I am crazy about the egg cups! And do you think I'm too old to wear a skirt made of the foxes? Wait, don't answer that. LOL

    Where in JoAnn's do they keep this stuff? Is it back with the quilting cottons?

    The bugs are insanely cute! I saw a FQ of the mermaids at Spotlight today (out version of Joanns) and was tempted but a FQ is not much use to me. There really are some seriously cut fabrics out right now.

  4. Great! Now I have to make the hour long trip to JoAnn's! Side note: It looks like Sammi's cloths stuff and improved. Am I right?

  5. I hate to add to your obsession but did you know Joanne will let you use multiple coupons in one order? Some weeks they have 5 or 6 50% off coupons in the paper and you can use them ALL as long as you 5 or 6 full price items. They also have online coupons too that you can use from your phone. I say buy more of that adorable fabric sweetness!!

  6. I haven't been to Joannes in so long partly because I was bored of the fabric. To think, I almost gave away my coupons!

  10. I LOVE your collection of Valentine's candy boxes. It looks so great on your mantle.
    Also - thanks for the tips about the fabric. The dogs with the wellies and the birds in kerchiefs are my faves. I am definatley going to Joann for some.


Hi there. What say you?
