Some Shopping Therapy

After a week of no driving, no crafting, and no gardening my sweet husband knew I needed a diversion. So he suggested a road trip to Indianapolis. I accepted! So he drove me around and very patiently waited while I shopped at Archiver's and my favorite quilt shop, Quilts Plus.



Look at all this scrapbooking goodness! I had been wanting those Tim Holtz Halloween stamps for awhile, so glad they had them. I'll use the min-misters to make up my own spray with Perfect Pearls.


I have admired the work of Australian quilter Lynette Anderson for a long time. So I was excited to see some of her Christmas fabric at Quilts Plus. And I also got a new Halloween Threads book.


Thank you to all the well wishing comments! I can't do much yet, though I did drive yesterday. I get my stitches out on Monday, and hopefully by then I can do some needlework and the housework that my very helpful husband doesn't see. I also want to hold our little Tad the next time we see him!
