I have been trying really hard to be on a fabric diet this year. I haven't done very well though. I keep putting on pounds instead of taking off. lol
Today was no exception! The weather has been bad here all day today but I had to go to town to get my hair trimmed. It was needed so badly I couldn't put it off just because of a few inches of snow. Of course, while I was in town I felt the urge to stop at Sharynn's, one of my favorite quilt shops. The main reason I went into Sharynns is because they have been saving me their empty bolt boards and I hadn't been in to pick them up lately. While I was there though, Rose had to show me some new things they had gotten in.
This panel was one of the new things they had gotten and I just had to have one. Isn't it so cute! They had the fabric line to go with it but I managed to contain myself there. Just barely though! lol

I also purchased a one pound bag of worms. It was the last one they had. I had gotten a couple of bags before at Christmas for gifts. If you don't know what worms are they are 2 1/2" x WOF strips. How many worms are in a pound? That was what I asked the first time I bought a bag. I was quite surprised that there were 50 in a pound. Well worth the $10 I paid for them.

Rose and Hope work at Sharynns and they just had to show me what they had Sharynn special order for them. I can't tell you what it was but I ordered one for my Mom's birthday gift. I think she is going to love it! Her birthday is in April so I will probably end of giving it to her as soon as it comes in.

We got quite a bit of snow last week and today we are being hit again. I AM SICK OF SNOW!!! I was looking at a friend of mines blog the other day. She had pictures of her kids playing in the snow. I had to post a comment on her blog about it. Remember when we were young and couldn't wait for a big snow. Couldn't wait to go play in it! Snow days from school! Now we cringe when the weather forecasters are telling us snow is even headed our way. I guess you can tell we have grown up! When did that happen? lol

I missed the worms when I was there. Too bad I could have saved you $10!! I, too, am sick of the snow!

My friend in Oregon just sent me the same panel. I'll be curious to see what you do with it.

Still not sure what worms are but I'm happy you're happy about them!

You have a lovely blog!
