I love the cheater shirt fabric. Boy do I wish I could find that one! You do find the most wonderful stuff. Glad to hear your cruise was fun. How could it not be??

Who knew there could be so many varieties of cherries? A great group of fabrics from beginning to end, as always. Glad to see you back (and I'm very envious to read about a cruise).

Some great fabrics! Wouldn't it be fun to make a quilt like the one you showed? There were some fabrics there I'd love to have, and some from the 1800s that could be on bolts in the stores today. Or we wish they were!
