Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It's off to Houston we go!




There once was a girl with no stash, 
her mother's closet she would crash,
So off to the festival she went,
and look at the money she spent! 
And now she's got fabrics gallore.
 --love, Dre

(I know it's the wrong rhyme scheme--but I was too excited to  figure it out.)



Check out my acquisitions!! My goals for this festival trip? Finish the fabric selections for Ryan's quilt. (All I'm missing is the brown yardage and flannel backing) and make a more robust fabric collection.  I only have 2 charm packs of Momo's Wonderland and 4 fat quarters of Sanae's Arcadia (pretty sad, huh?)

So here's the close up of the accent batik fabrics for Ryan's quilts.



Then I got a few different collections of fabrics for stashing...



This was some bits of fabric from various asian specialty booths. My favorite is the fishy one at the top.




I have no clue what to do with this charm pack but how can I say no to Momo's new line Odyssea? I just happened to come across a matching brown in a pile of fat quarters.




These are just some cute staple pieces to have.




This is happy purple themed collection that I picked from 2-4 booths.

This Last one was my most prized acquisition though....




The picture doesn't do it justice! It's a gold green, cream and navy blue.  I have like...3 potential projects from these great finds. (1/2 yard for $2.50!!!)
