i went to joann fabrics yesterday for the sole purpose of buying 2 yards of forest green rodeo cotton. only.  But I've been eyeing this line for a good month now (the butterflies is what got me, and then I had to get a few to match); and even though the heavier, coat-weight fabrics were really the ones that had caught my eye, I cannot justify buying coat fabric when I will soon be experiencing rapid and drastic growth in my belly-region. 

oh yeah - I'm pregnant again. About 10 weeks. (hence, nausea)

I think I'll make a quilt with it - no pattern, just wide wide strips of fabric - 10 inches maybe?- with some solids or color-on-same-color prints between. 

anyway. I also went to another fabric store, which I will probably never go to again for reasons I will not get into right now, for my Mom's birthday present. I got her some great "stuff" (ha, like I'm going to TELL you, Mom) although considering her tastes I think it's about 60% likely she already has exactly what I got her. (her stash is appropriately drool worthy)

Whatever, she can have more.  :)
