On Saturday, Audrie and I went to the Denyse Schmidt sample sale!! What the what!?! Yep, you read that correctly...the Denyse Schmidt SAMPLE SALE!! Everything about it was amazing! The quilt, the fabric, the deals!... I even talked to DS herself! I tried to play it cool, but I'm 99.9% sure I acted like an inappropriately flirty teenage girl...I wouldn't be surprised to find out that I had been twirling my hair and giggling and blushing. Whatever. I blame her for being so amazing. You should hop on over to Audrie's blog immediately to check out her pictures! She immortalized our day in photos. (I'm probably going to print them out and keep them with me at all times.) Plus she's awesome. Go now!
I did not take any pictures while we were there. I was too busy grabbing everything I could get my hands on...it was like I was on Supermarket Sweep. Come to think of it, a shopping cart would have really come in handy! Anyway, I got some delicious presents for myself!
Single Girl quilt, queen size, $75 (Don't be jealous! Ok, I take that back. Just go ahead and be jealous if you want to!)
Spool quilt, twin size, $75
Sugar Creek (WHAT!?! Do you know how long it would take me to get all of these with Joann coupons?)
I also got 1 small scrap bag and 3 large scrap bags of solids, which will be perfect for my improv project!...oh wait, did I forget to mention that I'm taking Denyse's Improv Patchwork workshop in February? THAT'S RIGHT! Audrie asked if I wanted to go with her...I immediately signed up and started a countdown. (T-minus 95 days and counting.) I got so much stuff that my arms were sore for two days...it felt like I had been pumpin' iron (if you've ever seen my chicken arms, you know how hilarious that would be!)...but I was really just carrying fabric and quilts around the studio...is it sad that I'm so out of shape? or awesome that I found so much stuff to buy? I'm going with awesome!
We also had cupcakes for lunch at Toppings and stopped at IKEA for fabric and hot dogs. Don't judge!
Now if you'll excuse me I have to go roll around in my giant pile of goodies!
