I'm not as convinced of yarn's ability to sit around, stay neat, and look pretty.
So at Purl, I bought a bundle of Kokka dwarf fabrics, because they reminded me of a story that I pitched that morning. These will probably never become anything but just in case, I bought a little bit more (cutesy, wittle deers this time and a hedgehog just in case) at a local quilt show last weekend because it is always better to be safe than sorry.
And then I made it to City Quilter. In my investigation before the trip, I had determined that I needed these New York fabrics in the way that I needed Diet Coke. It was fairly important to get on the subway and find them. So that was my first grab when I was buzzed in. Then I went looking for Leisure Arts books, and picked up the dog fabric and the wool bundle. I don't even use wool, but it was all nicely bundled and on display so now I have some.
Add to this about 6 years' worth of new t-shirts that I will only wear in my house, 4 magnets, 2 totes, souvenir tape measures for my friends, and a Christmas ornament for the tree, that's it. I mean, that's not a lot of extra spending, right?
Oh, and books.
And a Shutterfly scrapbook.
Really, I think that's it. I consider going with one suitcase and returning with only one suitcase to be success.
