A Rebel?

I thought I would slip this stash busting report in here quickly, before the next one is due. Yup, I'm late again. That's because I'm feeling like a rebel. There is a song from the 60's that keeps going through my head and I did a little research on it. It's called He's A Rebel by the Crystals. I wasn't even a teenager when this came out, but I remember it just the same. So in my research I found that the Crystals didn't even record the version that became a number one tune. It was the Blossoms. Just a little bit of Trivia for you. And if you watched the video in the link for He's A Rebel, who does that remind you of? First thing I thought of was Heath Ledger. I don't know if Heath was a rebel, but I would think for a straight guy to play a gay man in a movie, he would have to have a little bit of a rebel in him. I really liked Heath, I thought he was a great actor. I loved watching him in " A Knights Tale" or "Cassanova" and "The Patriot". What a sad loss. Oh yeah, this is supposed to be my stash report.... I have only acquisitions to report. As I mentioned in my last post 28.5 yards of Vicky's stash followed me home. It all happened quite innocently. She plopped some bags of fabric on the table and told Judy and I to go through it and take want we wanted. It sat there for 2 days and finally I started to look through it thinking I would take the neutrals for a swap that I'm in. Once I was done, Judy said she didn't have room in her suitcase to take it home. Well, I couldn't say I didn't want it, could I? This just doesn't look like 28.5 yards, but it really is! Do I get any points for taking it off of Vicky's hands? And this trip was all about going to one of the biggest quilt shows in California right? So a girl has to shop a little! We also went to a couple of quilt shops in our travels. Ginger's and Bolts In the Bathtub. So here is a pic of another 10.25 yards that came home north with me and the other stuff I acquired. Sharon you must be special, cause I didn't get a fat quarter in my goodie bag from Kris like you did! Ok, so it's Saturday, and tomorrow is time for another stash report, I need to go accomplish something so that I will have more to report than my fabric gluttony! I such a rebel!

I'd be a rebel too if Vicky was giving that to me....oh yeah! Very nice! And of course you can't go to a big show like that and come out empty handed. :)
I remember that song!

And, I think a brown, carpet colored fat quarter fell onto the floor under the chair in the dining room so you actually missed a fat quarter!
