Sleep Shopping...

So, what if I told you that I'm not allowed to shop
in the middle of the night anymore?

Would you wonder why I was ever allowed to do this in the first place? The truth is, I had never actually done it before. You see, I have a new baby and frequent the wee hours of the night to feed her. I also happen to be the lucky wife of a husband that won an iPad at work. Now, you may wonder how these two things go together, or you may see the obvious- I use this little 'toy' all the time. I look at yummy fabrics and keep up with my ever growing blogroll and twitter friends. Seems pretty harmless right?

Well, last weekend I caught wind of a 50% off sale on some fabric. I had looked at it before, but wasn't over-the-top, have-to-have-it-now about it. Which usually means I will wait for something better. I mean, we're on a budget here! But for some reason, that sale, in the middle of the night, with credit card handy, was the perfect storm. And I caved.

Funny thing is, come morning, I had no recollection
WHAT FABRIC I had actually purchased. Seriously, I was panicking! I remembered buying something, but I couldn't remember what. What's more, I somehow deleted the email with the details so I really couldn't remember. GENIUS!

So this morning this arrived on my doorstep:

{a pretty little package from the Fat Quarter Shop}

{with half yards of these six delicious fabrics!}

{pink bubbles}

{delectable chocolate cupcakes}

{and a pretty pink recipe print!}

{all in favor of me doing ALL my shopping by moonlight?}


  1. I think you deleted the email on purpose to cover your tracks. :) At least you ordered cute fabric, instead of some random piece of exercise equipment from a middle-of-the-night infomercial! Can't wait to see what you make out of this stuff.

  2. this story made me laugh so hard!!

  3. CHELSIE!!!! Oh my gosh! It's been forever! Last time I talked to you/saw you- you weren't married- and didn't have a baby! So it's apparently been way too long! How ARE you?! Crystal commented on our blog and I clicked on her profile hoping to find hers... (still didn't)... but I found you!!! Come on over to my blog and let me know if you have a blog of your cute little fam- I'd love to see your little one!!! Hope all's well for you!

  4. what are you going to make, I love the colors

  5. how are you, haven't seen you blog in a while. Just wanted you to know i was still stopping by

  6. Haha! I love this post! I got some package from Fat Quarter Shop the other day, that I had completely forgotten about. Late night weakness + credit card info in PayPal = more fabric I have to hide from my husband!

  7. Cute blog! I am starting my first quilt (from my kids' old clothes). This could be disastrous. :/ Anyway, I started following you on Twitter and am just now checking out your blog. I am impressed. Keep it up! In other words, don't let the little one slow you down. I had to end mine altogether, but I can't blame it all on my kids, if I'm being nice. ;o) (I'm kidding. My problem is I have too many hobbies!)
