Thank you, snow!

We had a snowstorm last weekend...2 days before Halloween.  Two days before Trick-or-Treating.  Our town (as well as many others in our area) decided to postpone Trick-or-Treating until last night.  No boys enjoyed three days off from school last week because of the storm so they weren't complaining too much.  So, my hubs took the boys around the block last night to get their loot...I stayed home to hand out candy.

But, either because people didn't want to bother because Halloween had already come and gone or because Trick-or-Treating was later in the day than we're used to (we used to do it in the afternoon), we had very few trick-or-treaters.  We had a few rushes of kiddos, but for the most part it was a quiet evening.  The only thing that really stuck out was one rude teenager who showed up with some friends and didn't even bother to say anything to me (let alone a "thank you") because he was too busy on his cell phone.  Please tell me I'm raising my boys better than that...basic manners go a long way!

Anyway, where was I going with this?  Oh yes...since my job as candy-hander-outer provided me with a lot of down time, I went shopping online...Christmas fabric shopping!  There were a couple of prints I wanted to restock in my stash...and then I wanted to add a few others.  I have a few Christmas swaps in the works so I felt justified.  Wanna see what I got?

Well, from the Euro Girls Boutique I got a yard of this:
Yule Critters
And a yard of this:
Jingle Dangle

From Trendy Baby Fabrics I got a yard of this:
Yule Trees
These are my three favorite Christmas fabrics from Michael Miller.  I REALLY wanted these, so I'm glad I was able to find them!  Plus, I ordered fat quarters of these prints from Flurry by Kate Spain from Sew Lux Fabrics


So, while the snow postponed our Halloween, it sure worked out for me - pretty new fabric to look forward to and TONS of leftover Halloween candy...yay for snow!
