I could hoard this stuff

Quilters talk about hoarding certain lines of fabric, of being afraid to use it up, of prowling ebay to complete their collections.......I didn't get it until now.
 
I seriously  covet Get a Clue With Nancy Drew, even if I have already made two quilts from it. I've got a charm pack left for my blog hop project, and some leftover bits from the quilt backing and binding. But I wanted just a bit more.  Greenbaum's called two days ago to let me know that it had finally come in and by the time I made it in there today, most of it was gone.    
 
I did get the two prints I was hoping for, a half yard of each. I've got plans for both.  And I will be keeping track of every last scrap. Because it's that special.
 


I also stopped at Craft Warehouse and Joann's to pick up some more green for the border of the turtle quilt. And a bunch of Wool-Ease which was on sale for the best price I've seen in ages. I need to cast on something that I can knit with other people in the room and I'm envisioning these cute little striped pink stocking caps for the NICU.

I feel that way about chicopee.. I keep getting various forms of it.. I would that I could just buy a bolt of each of the fabrics in the line.
