At the beginning of this month, I attended a quilt show in my area. I got to see lots of gorgeous quilts, including a showing of the Women of Biblical Proportions. It is a smallish show, but the quilts were outstanding.
Of course, you can't go to the quilt show without checking out the vendors. One great vendor (Bead Ranch) had lots of beads and these beautiful dyed lace motifs.
I bought the peacock in both the colored version and in pristine white -- such a neat motif I just couldn't resist!
I also live fairly close to Florilegium, a wonderful store that has tons of hand-dyed silk ribbon, yarns, buttons, anything and everything to tempt your pocketbook. Since I am sadly lacking in the silk ribbon department, I had to come home with some of these. The little bundles are multi-yarn/ribbon assortments and I can't wait to use them in a project. The braided skeins are silk floss. I told myself I was going to break out of my blue/purple rut, but you can see that I didn't do too good (LOL).
So that's where my money has gone this month!
