As far as goodies go, I went to the show with the desire to NOT purchase fabric and
to FIND something unique.  And this is what I came up with.

I bought the Quiltsmart's Baskets Around  pattern because I thought it would be
good for one of the bazillion fat quarters bundles I have collecting dust.
And the Hickory Nut templates?  I just thought were neat.  Here's what they're used for...

These little hexagons are SUPER addictive!  These particular ones were made from the small template set using a few charm packs.  So far I have 30 made with another 45 or so to go.  
For anyone interested, you can purchase the templates here.  
That's all for now.  Type at ya later...
