What would you do..oo..oo (sung to the tune of the Klondike Bar commercial)

for an extra $5 off at your favorite quilt fabric shop????   

Well, that's what they were offering if you came in today wearing your spring bonnet! Our first reaction?  Are you kidding me?  A spring bonnet? Yeah, sure!!!  But hey, $5 is $5...or 2 fat quarters..or 1/2 yard of fabric.

So let me present...Kirsten's spring bonnet.


How do you like the cute little butterfly I stitched up using some scraps from Butterfly Fling by Me and My Sister for Moda?  And the flowers are all attached to hair clips, cuz that's what they are, flower hair clips that Kirsten made for herself and Zoey.  One of the flowers is clipped on to the butterfly to hold it in place and they are all clipped to the hatband ribbon.  I just want to see if Spencer will leave the flowers and butterfly on the hat next time he wears it!

We forgot to take a picture until after we had already taken the flowers and butterfly off my hat (and it was outside in my truck), but it was a cute straw hat with a wide black ribbon that I got a few years ago in Hawaii.  I've never worn it since Hawaii, but I just couldn't bear to part with it and today I was really glad I still had it.

So, what would we do for an extra $5 off our fabric purchase (which really means an extra $5 to spend at the fabric shop)?  We would wear silly hats with flowers and a cloth butterfly clipped to the hat bands!!!!

Oh. My. Goodness.

I totally needed to get fabric. But we never made it out that far! And... I didnt have a neat straw hat to bedeck with flowers and butterflies :)
