A Package!

Doorbell: Ding Dong!
Me: Who could it be? No-one is at the door.
Husband: Maybe it's a package.
Me: (Looks down) It is! It's a package from...
Husband: Yes?!
Me: (mumbling) thftqrshp.
Husband: Where?
Me: (mumbling) thefatqurtrshop.
Husband: Huh?
Me: Aah! The Fat Quarter Shop! Don't judge me!
Husband: Isn't that the third package we've gotten from them in like a we--
Me: I am not an addict! I can quit any time. They gave me 20% off - what was I supposed to, do ignore it?
Husband: Baby, put the package down.
Me: No! This is my package! I bought it and I love it and you can't take it from me!
Husband: You don't even know what's in it.
Me: Yes I do, here! (Opens package to reveal...)

Trick or Treat Stacker, Panel, and Yardages by Doodlebug Designs for Riley Blake

Me: It's for our OTHER Halloween quilt, in addition to Spookyville II, because I have no willpower.
Husband: On second thought, I see why this package was a necessity... Good job getting 20% off, baby.

Technically, it was our third package in a week and a half, and technically the second package came from Emerald City Fabrics. But I still love my husband for all that he puts up with, and even encourages my new quilting habit. And I'm excited to dig into this fabric!


  1. I think you are getting off cheap. This is where I plan to go tomorrow and they have LOTS of vendors all under one HUGE convention center roof!
