{ In my own defense...this is why I get suckered into buying more fabric.}

It happened again today. I received squishy mail from Stash Addict Quilts. It was the Fat Eighth bundle of Best.Day.Ever! that I mentioned in yesterday's post. I stumbled on their online shop by accident two months ago and have been ordering from them ever since. One reason is their great prices, even without  Deal of the Day pricing, and the other is a special gift that comes with every order......a mini Moda charm pack and a coordinating fat quarter. The first time I ordered with them and I saw the gift  I was thrilled. I really believed it was a one time deal for a new customer. Nope. Each and every order has a sweet little surprise included.

This is the way my recent fabric buying binge happened, all thanks to those $%@& mini charm packs and fat q's:

First order: Layer cake of specially priced Mirabelle by Fig Tree & Co arrived with a gift of 25th and  Pine from Basic Grey.

Second order: Four charm packs of specially priced  25th and Pine arrived with a gift of Weeds by Me & My Sister

Third order: Fat Quarter bundle of Weeds arrived with a gift of Best.Day.Ever! by April Rosenthal

Are you seeing a pattern here?

Fourth order: Fat Eighth bundle of Best.Day.Ever! Just received this morning. I was torn. To open or not to open. I wanted to look at the pretty fabric, just for a moment, yet, I was not sure I was ready to view my special gift. I secretly hoped it would be something flowery or juvenile so I wouldn't be tempted again. Please, I prayed, don't be Miss Kate by Bonnie & Camille. The suspense was too much and I was not what I had hoped for. Elementary by Sweetwater. Oh crap, I'm in trouble, again.
