Robots and the Danger Zone and OPD

So.. taking my son to his new preschool program--which is GREAT--may not be that great for my wallet.  Turns out that said school is right in the middle of a danger zone.. i.e. my LQS.  It is literally maybe a quarter mile away.  Practically just across the street!

So the other day when I was early to pick him up, I thought I'd just pop in to look around.  A perfect way to kill some time.  More like a perfect way to kill some money! Look what I found in the 50% off bin.

ROBOTS! (David W. for Free Spirit)

Seriously adorable! Crazy cute!!

A DOG!!! :o)  I swoon for cute little boy prints. 

So does my cute little boy.

My hexie virus is well documented as of late, but if you haven't noticed before now, I also suffer from Obsessive Pillowcase Disorder. If you don't believe me, revisit my Pillowcase-palooza post by CLICKING HERE.  I had made a couple for my son, and then when Joplin, MO was hit by an EF-5 tornado in May of this year, I decided to make a bunch to send to my bro. to give away there.  Both my parents and my bro/sis-in-law live in Joplin but were unharmed. That started my obsession. They are so much fun and so easy!

So, there.  I have now admitted to two documented fabric related illnesses.  I think I will need professional help. ;o)


Think of the petrol money you'll be saving with the Pre-school being so close to the fabric shop...LOL!!!

Fellow quilters are all the help you need ; )

Yes, you do need help. Call a friend and take her with you to the LQS. Totally okay!

Cute pillowcases! Just think of the time you'll save having to make special fabric shop trips! :)

Only two fabric related illnesses Kelli, you must be getting better! Love the robot fabric. Wish I had a LQS nearby so that I could just live in it.

We all suffer from the same illness, Kelli. That's why we blog. It's our virtual support group! Cute fabric.

Love the super cute fabrics!!

Hope your parents and your brother are doing ok. I have another blogger friend who grew up in Joplin and she has been there lately...her pictures are just unbelievable. I feel so bad for those folks.

When I was in My LQS today, I noticed that they had the cutest pillow cases in great Halloween fabrics. I don't think my sons would use Halloween pillowcases, but I sure would! I'm thinking of going back tomorrow and getting some fabric for one (or two)!
