Darcie thinks I am addicted!

Darcie thinks I addicted to the coffee fabrics, and she may be right! My husband would be so happy if I learned to drink coffee. He is a coffee snob. He orders his coffee from this place called Torre Fazzione that he discovered when we lived in Seattle.

I let myself make 6 more pineapple blocks this morning. Now I need to get this house cleaned up. We are leaving Monday afternoon to go to Little Rock to see my in-laws. I hate coming home to a messy house so I will try to get it into a livable state before we leave. We are hoping to spend Thanksgiving night with hubby's aunt and uncle in Shreveport, Louisiana and then will head on home Friday. I am hoping I can talk hubby into letting me go to a quilt store in Shreveport that I discovered two years ago when we were there. It was called Material Pleasures or Material Girls. Some with material in the name! And I know there is another quilt store in Vicksburg, Mississippi which we will go through too! And of course I will go to Blossom Quiltworks in Little Rock. This is a new store that opened about a year and a half ago - and its right around the corner from my in-laws house!! Yeah!!! And so is a big JoAnns store.

Maybe I will survive the 5 days with the in-laws! I may be a lot poorer but at least I will be sane!

Sarah! I LOVE these colors and blocks! So are they going together easily? I loved Bonnie's pineapple blocks but haven't had the time to play with them - yours are wonderful!

Hope you get to the quilt stores!
