'Happy' by Pharrell Williams. It's super upbeat and fun.

kc said...

You might think this crazy, but I'm hearing "You Are My Sunshine" in my head over & over - no matter how dreary or sad a day is, wandering around fabric stalls and viewing all the pretty patterns always brightens up the day & lightens up the mood.

Thank you for sharing all the beauty (and the loot!)

janie said...

"A quilting we will go, a quilting we will go, hi ho the merry mess, a quilting we will go."

Way up high
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me"

lalaluu said...

Since my grandmother was a quilter, I keep thinking of a song she used to sing to me at bedtime - What can the matter be? It talks about how Johnny went to buy a "bonnie blue ribbon" to tie up this girls hair, but he's not back yet - "Johnny's so long at the fair." Well, Johnny may have been at Quilt Market and was picking up not only ribbon, but fabric and notions to bring home to me!

Years ago, I re-wrote the lyrics to Sesame Streets "I Love Trash" - Oscar's song - to "I Love Fabric."
The lyrics went somthing like this..
Oh, I love fabric
Anything Hoffman or from Jenny Beyer,
Alexander Henry, you sure light my fire
Oh, I love, I love, I love fabric!

(There were more verses, but you get the idea!)
